LVM Thin Provisioning support in Anaconda

The Fedora installer now supports creating thinly provisioned LVM volumes in both the graphical interface and automated (kickstart) installations. This change includes a new automatic partitioning variant as well as new options to create thin volumes in custom partitioning.

Rsyslog no longer part of the default installation

The rsyslog logging service is no longer being installed by default. All logging is now being handled by the systemd journal. Users requiring the rsyslog service should install it manually.

To access the journald log, use the following command:

journalctl

For more information about the journal, see http://0pointer.de/blog/projects/the-journal.html.

Sendmail no longer part of the default installation

The sendmail mail transport agent is no longer a part of the default installation. Any packages previously using this program, such as cron, will now deliver their output into the system log by default. Sendmail remains available for manual installation for users who require it.
