Compiler and  interpreters i.e.Glade having GUI and implements app-data 
(supposedly mandatory starting on Fedora 22)  will be displayed on Gnome 
Software. Gnome Software is to abstract the package concept to only 
focus on applications accessible to desktop.
The recent inclusion of add-on on Gnome Software brings useful solution 
like installing Eclipse and select add-on like Java Development Tools.
