New Fedora features

The newly launched Fedora 26 introduced several package updates and minor improvements, but most of the eye catching changes were in Fedora’s system installer. The installer, called Anaconda, has been updated with a number of improvements to disk partitioning and networking options.

“Anaconda – the Fedora installer – has many new features and improvements implemented for Fedora 26. The most visible addition is the introduction of Blivet GUI, providing power users an alternate way to configure partitioning. Additionally, there are improvements to automated installation with kickstart, a range of networking improvements, better status reporting when your install is under way, and much more.”

Fedora Magazine lists the new Anaconda features and provides screen shots of the new disk partitioning tool in action.
