Warning: Possible data loss when dual-booting Windows 8

Using the "fast restart" feature of Windows 8 and rebooting into Fedora may lead to data loss. Files written to the Windows partition by Fedora may be deleted when rebooting into Windows 8. This may be avoided by disabling the "fast restart" feature in Windows 8.

New installer interface

(I'll write this tomorrow!)

Changed package group names

--nobase flag deprecated

The --nobase flag used to suppress installation of the Base package group has been deprecated.
