There are some interesting new features we'd like to highlight:
* Rootfs-Resize now works with logical partitions * Raspberrypi kernel-devel package has been added * New Pidora 2014 splash screen * New Pidora logos * Improved Headless Mode can be used with setups lacking a monitor or display * Much faster boot speed * Faster and smoother graphical usability, with Xorg fbturbo driver * Almost all of the Fedora 20 package set available via yum (thousands of packages were built from the official Fedora repository and made available online) * Compiled specifically to take advantage of the hardware already built into the Raspberry Pi * Graphical firstboot configuration (with additional modules specifically made for the Raspberry Pi) * Compact initial image size (for fast downloads) and auto-resize (for maximum storage afterwards) * Auto swap creation available to allow for larger memory usage * C, Python, & Perl programming languages available & included in the SD card image * IP address information can be read over the speakers and flashed with the LED light * For graphical operation, Gedit text editor can be used with plugins (python console, file manager, syntax highlighting) to serve as a mini-graphical IDE * For console operation, easy-to-use text editors are included (nled, nano, vi) plus Midnight Commander for file management * Includes libraries capable of supporting external hardware such as motors and robotics (via GPIO, I2C, SPI)
