    Phoronix: Fedora 17 Has More Features: GIMP 2.8, GCC 4.7, oVirt, Etc

    Fedora 17 (a.k.a. the Beefy Miracle) already has an impressive list of new features coming, but several more features have been added to their planned list...

    KDE Plasma Dependency Generation and PackageKit Integration
    Users will be able to install Plasma widgets (plasmoids) written in scripting languages through "Add widgets… / Download new widgets…" and automatically get the required Fedora packages for those widgets to actually work installed. This gives users convenient access to upstream's huge widget library without manually having to install dependencies such as plasma-scriptengine-*. (It is not possible to include all the script engines and the script interpreters they require on the live image and thus in the default installation.)

    It looks like Fedora will be the first distribution to offer this convenient Plasma feature, developed by Fedora.
    Nice feature for all KDE users. Hopefully we will see this soon in other distros as well. It requires libplasma patches and as kdelibs are frozen they probably will not end up in upstream before KDE Frameworks 5.0.
