systemctl assumes it works with services

systemctl, the utility used to administer services and other systemd targets, will now assume that it is working with a service. Administrators will no longer have to append '.service' to the name of the daemon they are administering. For example, `systemctl restart dhcpd` will now just work, but previous releases required `systemctl restart dhcpd.service`.

Terminals get more colorful

Fedora now enables supporting terminal emulators to use 256 colors. With new environment variables, applications such as gnome-terminal, konsole, and screen will automatically be enabled with 256 color support. Other applications can display 256 colors but must be configured.
