Name        : calamares
Product     : Fedora 21
Version     : 1.1.3
Release     : 1.fc21
URL         : http://calamares.io/
Summary     : Installer from a live CD/DVD/USB to disk
Description :
Calamares is a distribution-independent installer framework, designed to install
from a live CD/DVD/USB environment to a hard disk. It includes a graphical
installation program based on Qt 5. This package includes the Calamares
framework and the required configuration files to produce a working replacement
for Anaconda's liveinst.

Update Information:

An update of Calamares to the latest upstream release, version 1.1.3, which
fixes some bugs in the partitioning component and adds some new optional
features that are disabled by default in Fedora packaging.  The change log for
this release includes:  * An all new WebView module, which allows the deployer
to show any web page in a WebKit environment. The module is disabled by default
in the Fedora `settings.conf` and shipped in the `calamares-webview` subpackage
(because it is not used in the default configuration and depends on
`qt5-qtwebkit`). * An all new License module, which allows the deployer to
require acceptance of licensing terms for proprietary components. The module is
disabled by default in the Fedora `settings.conf`. The shipped `license.conf` is
a dummy example template. Remixes which include proprietary components should
ship a `/etc/calamares/settings.conf` that enables the module and a
`/etc/calamares/modules/license.conf` that lists the actual proprietary
components and their licenses. * Enhanced autologin defaults customization:
There is a new boolean option `doAutologin` in `users.conf` (defaulting to
`false` in Fedora) that determines whether autologin defaults to on or off.
(This is only the default setting, it can be overridden by the user.) * Support
for blacklisting modules at build time. (No modules are currently blacklisted in
the Fedora packaging.) * Service disabling support in the Services module. (The
list of services to disable can be configured in `services.conf` and defaults to
the empty list in Fedora packaging.) * Several bug fixes in the partitioning
component: the required `-F` flag is now also passed to `mkfs.ext2` (not just
ext3 and ext4); LOOP, UNKNOWN and read-only devices are no longer shown; and
LUKS partitions no longer crash the partitioner (but cannot be set up yet, this
will be fixed in the upcoming Calamares 2.0).

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program. Use
su -c 'yum update calamares' at the command line.
