DNF Continues Evolving For Fedora's Yum Replacement
Version 0.4.15 of the next-generation package management solution for Fedora to ultimately replace Yum, DNF, is now available.
DNF 0.4.15 works on enabling more functionality out of its DNF Anaconda installer back-end, reporting improvements for indicating progress on downloading packages, experimental support for some of the repo-pkgs commands, new API additions, and many bug-fixes.
More information on DNF 0.4.15 can be found from this developer blog post and the release notes.
Fedora 21 is switching to using Hawkey but for DNF it's not likely to replace the yum command by default until at least Fedora 22. However, recent stable versions of Fedora can also install the experimental DNF package manager side-by-side with yum.
