It is said that the only constant is change and so it is at Korora. There have been a couple of changes recently. First our Project lead, Chris Smart, is taking an indefinite break from the project. Chris still supports the aims of Korora but for personal reasons and to allow more time for other challenges he is taking a break. He has the full support of the rest of the team to expand his horizons. Ian Firns (aka firnsy) has taken on the leadership of the project in addition to his development role.
Exciting times are ahead for our upcoming release here at the Korora Project.
Korora has always included a graphical package manager in all releases. For most versions this has been Yum Extender (aka Yumex) and later the version for dnf simply known as yumex-dnf. However recently the developer of Yumex-dnf announced that there would be no future development. Around the same time a new package manager designed specifically for dnf emerged, dnfdragora.
Korora "was born out of a desire to make Linux easier for new users" and one way of achieving that aim was the development of Pharlap, a tool for the simple installation of third party drivers. However times change and sadly it is time to say goodbye to Pharlap which will not be included in Korora 24.
