Fedora Core Today, Fedora 11 will be unleashed upon the web. The release has been postponed for a few days, but this time it's for real. It comes packed with lots of changes, such as improved boot time, Nouveau as the default NVIDIA driver, and of course the latest and greatest version of various open source packages.

Member since:

you can actually update between Fedora releases with yum, we just don't support or emphasize this method.

Why not? Similar methods are supported on Debian, Arch and other systems.

If you ask our release engineering team and yum engineers they will give you a very long list of reasons why in-place upgrading can never be entirely a safe proposition.

Is this documented anywhere?
