To be clear: every update requires reboot in Fedora 20 GNOME. (You have
to go out of your way, by using yum/dnf or gpk-update-viewer, if you
want to avoid reboots.)
You can usually get away with not rebooting right away, but you need to be
aware that you aren't going to get kernel or shared library fixes right
away, which can leave security vulnerabilities in some cases. For some
applications (notably firefox), you'll need to restart the application to
avoid issues. For cases where you have gnome issues, logging out will probably
be good enough and you can avoid doing a reboot.
