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.
The Fedora COPR repos are a great source of software that isn't (yet?) available in the regular repos. Some are new versions that will appear in future releases but are available now for testing. Some are very specialised software for which there is little demand.
