GNOME Software

The GNOME Software application installer (the gnome-software package), which was first introduced in Fedora 20, is now more integrated in the system and provides additional functionality. Notable new features include:

  • Installing application add-ons is now supported.
  • High quality metadata, such as screenshots, are now offered for many applications, allowing you to gather more information before installing a package.
  • The tool has been turned into a session service, which allows it to check for available system updates automatically even when the application itself has not been launched by the user. This functionality was previously provided by the gnome-settings-daemon service.
  • The application is now much better integrated into GNOME Shell:
    • Available system updates are now offered in the Power Off dialog.
    • Non-installed packages can now be displayed among search results when using the integrated search function.
    • You can now right-click an application icon in the shell overview and select Show Details from the menu to obtain information about an installed package.
  • You can now create and customize application folders using the application installer.
  • The tool now starts up much faster and provides a more responsive interface due to the switch from the YUM backend to the one provided by the DNF project.
