Fedora Update Notification

Name        : marble
Product     : Fedora 16
Version     : 4.7.4
Release     : 1.fc16
URL         : http://edu.kde.org/marble/
Summary     : Virtual globe and world atlas
Description :
Marble is a Virtual Globe and World Atlas that you can use to learn more
about Earth: You can pan and zoom around and you can look up places and
roads. A mouse click on a place label will provide the respective Wikipedia

Of course it's also possible to measure distances between locations or watch
the current cloud cover. Marble offers different thematic maps: A classroom-
style topographic map, a satellite view, street map, earth at night and
temperature and precipitation maps. All maps include a custom map key, so it
can also be used as an educational tool for use in class-rooms. For
educational purposes you can also change date and time and watch how the
starry sky and the twilight zone on the map change.

In opposite to other virtual globes Marble also features multiple
projections: Choose between a Flat Map ("Plate carré"), Mercator or the Globe.

Update Information:

An update of the KDE Software Compilation, i.e. the KDE Plasma Workspaces, the KDE Development Platform and the core KDE Applications, to the latest bugfix release from KDE, version 4.7.4.

Due to stability, usability and security concerns, we decided to disable the Solid UPnP backend by default in this update. This means that you will, by default, not get notifications about networked shares in the device notifier. (Those notifications have been found to be a major annoyance in some environments, the feature also triggered some crashes in the Herqq UPnP library, and there was no way to disable the feature.) The UPnP functionality can be reenabled by setting the SOLID_UPNP environment variable, e.g. by
creating an /etc/kde/env/upnp.sh (or ~/.kde/env/upnp.sh) file with the following contents:
