    That's exactly what they're doing, they just gave the beta a new name so people could test it more easily.

    I expect I'll be sticking with using the rpm command directly then.

    Other distributions

    This DNF package manager can be used on openSUSE, Gentoo and Ubuntu too?

    Note about the name "DNF": it has no relevant meaning, meant as a project name only. Since DNF is a tech preview in Fedora 18 the Python module names can not be 'yum.*' as that would clash with yum itself.

    I thought DNF was shorthand for "Did Not Finish"

    That would seem to be an unfortunate name for a package manager.
