Name        : PackageKit
Product     : Fedora 19
Version     : 0.8.8
Release     : 2.fc19
URL         : http://www.packagekit.org
Summary     : Package management service
Description :
PackageKit is a D-Bus abstraction layer that allows the session user
to manage packages in a secure way using a cross-distro,
cross-architecture API.

Update Information:

- New upstream release
- PackageKit now allow local active users to install signed software without prompting for authentication. If you need to change this you will need to either install a PolicyKit override or just patch the policy file.
- Added Provides property to retrieve which Provides the backend supports
- Allow clients to call org.freedesktop.DBus.Peer
- browser-plugin: Do not crash when running an installed package that is upgradable
- Do not install the bash-completion code in /etc
- Do not use _UTF8Writer when using python3
- Don't abort the daemon if the client requests a property that does not exist
- Don't use the default main context in sync PkClient methods
- Expose the transaction flags on the .Transaction object
- Pause for 10 seconds if an error occurred before restarting systemd-updates
- Remove the prepared-updates file if any relevant state was changed
- Support getting the distro-id from /etc/os-release
- Use PIE to better secure installed tools and also use full RELRO in the daemon
- Use the correct session method to fix font installation in pk-gtk-module
- Write a pre-failure status file in case the update transaction crashes
- yum: Ensure conf.cache is set before repo.cache is created
- yum: Ignore errors when removing packages to work out the requires list
- zif: Do not issue a critical warning when doing WhatProvides
- zif: Use the same speedup used in libzif upstream
