GNOME Software

In this talk I will present GNOME Software, the application installer for GNOME that first appeared as a technical preview in Fedora 20. I will discuss the feature set of the application, the motivations for building something new, and also explain where we are headed for Fedora 21 and more. I'll quickly explain which technologies and standards that we've leveraged and the things we've deliberately ignored. From Fedora 20, this will be the tool that people will use to install applications, codecs and fonts, but I'll also mention other distributions and the challenges they and us face. I'll end with a plea for help, and explain how both users and developers can help make the application even more awesome. They'll be ample time for questions at the end too.
