===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.
  
Fedora 13 introduces a new method of installing or upgrading Fedora over the Internet, using boot images available from http://boot.fedoraproject.org/. Images are available for a variety of media, including USB, CD and DVD, and floppy disk. You can use this image to start the boot process on a system, which then contacts a remote server to complete the boot process and launch the installer. The process is similar to booting on a network with a Preboot Execution Environment (PXE) server available.
+
===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.
  
The installation or upgrade process itself is the same as if you were performing the process with local media, such as a DVD.
+
To access the journald log, use the following command:
 +
<pre>
 +
journalctl
 +
</pre>
  
There is nothing in the boot image that is specific to this version of Fedora; in future, you can use the same boot image to install or upgrade to subsequent versions of Fedora.

===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 <code>cron</code>, will now deliver their output into the system log by default. Sendmail remains available for manual installation for users who require it.

Per package documentation is now installed into unversioned /usr/share/doc/packagename directories. Previously the directory contained the package's version in addition to its name.
  
On systems with multiple storage devices (for example, more than one hard disk drive), the installation process for Fedora 13 differs from that of previous versions. Early in the installation process, anaconda asks you to select storage devices to use during installation. Devices that you do not select are excluded from the partitioning step that takes place later during installation.

== Installing on multipath devices ==
+
 
+
Anaconda can now install Fedora on multipath devices. If you have multipath devices attached to your system, choose the Specialized Storage Devices option when anaconda offers it to you.

+
 
+
== System Security Services Daemon ==
+
 
+
Fedora 13 can now take advantage of the System Security Services Daemon (SSSD) to enable high-performance, cached authentication and identity lookups, as well as support for offline authentication. Offline caching of identity data is supported for LDAP and FreeIPA servers, and offline authentication is supported for LDAP, Kerberos 5 and FreeIPA authentication servers.

+
To use this feature, choose the Use Network Login option when configuring a system with Firstboot. Firstboot runs automatically after installation completes and the system restarts.

[edit] 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.

[edit] 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

[edit] 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.

[edit] Unversioned docdirs

Per package documentation is now installed into unversioned /usr/share/doc/packagename directories. Previously the directory contained the package's version in addition to its name.
