DNF Plugins Extend The Functionality Of Fedora's Yum Successor

Written by Michael Larabel in Fedora on 29 January 2015 at 09:07 AM EST. Add A Comment
With the upcoming Fedora 22 release due out in May, DNF is positioned to replace Yum as the default package manager.

While there's been many DNF articles on Phoronix in past months, one of the aspects not covered much to this point is the dnf-plugins-extra package that's in its very early stages. Version 0.0.3 of dnf-plugins-extras was released today as a collection of DNF plugins done by the community.

Included in dnf-plugins-extras 0.0.3 are local, repoclosure, repograph, repomanage, rpmconf, snapper, and tracer.

Those wishing to learn more about the functionality that these extra plug-ins bring to DNF, see the release announcement that was posted this morning to the Fedora development list.
