  = Installation

+ This section describes changes in the *Anaconda* installer.

+ 

+ == Anaconda modularization effort

+ *Anaconda* is going through a large scale effort to modularize its internals. (Note that this effort is separate from the _Fedora_ modularization effort described in <<select-modularity>>.) The following changes have been made to *Anaconda*:

+ 

+ * Modules have been added which are separate *Python* processes. They are connected to the main *Anaconda* process using *DBus*.

+ * Most Kickstart commands are now processed on separate modules, and used in the UI in many places as backend data sources.

+ 

+ The modularization effort has no visible impact on the user experience. To read more about the installer internals, see the link:++https://rhinstaller.wordpress.com/++[installer team's blog].

+ 

+ == Kickstart changes

+ * The `authconfig` command has been deprecated by `authselect`.

+ 

+ == Changes in boot options

+ New boot options:

+ 

+ * `inst.stage2.all` - With this boot option, the stage 2 image will be fetched from HTTP, HTTPS and FTP locations which are specified using the `inst.stage2=` option sequentially in the order they are specified, until the image is successfully fetched. All other locations will be ignored.

+ * `inst.ks.all` - With this boot option, the Kickstart file will be fetched from HTTP, HTTPS and FTP locations which are specified using the `inst.ks=` option sequentially in the order they are specified, until the file is successfully fetched. All other locations will be ignored.

+ * `inst.xtimeout=` - Specifies a timeout period (in seconds) the installer will wait before starting the *X* server.

+ 

+ == Reduced initial setup redundancy

+ When you install the _Workstation_ variant of Fedora 28 using the live image, you will now be prompted to create a user account by *GNOME Initial Setup* instead of Anaconda. Additionally, you will no longer be prompted to set a root password during the installation of Fedora Workstation using the live image. The `root` account will be disabled by default; you can enable it by setting a password for it using the `sudo passwd` command. If you do not reenable the `root` account, you can still perform any administrative tasks using `sudo` and your user password.

+ 

+ These changes have been made in order to reduce redundancy between **Anaconda**, **Initial Setup**, and **GNOME Initial Setup**, which could previously all ask you to perform the same setup tasks.

+ 

+ == Miscellaneous changes

+ 

+ * Former dependencies of the _anaconda_ package itself have been separated into the _anaconda-install-env-deps_ package.

+ * The number of dependencies for *Initial Setup* has been massively decreased, which enables it to run on systems with a significantly lower amount of memory than before.

+ * Anaconda now enables hibernation by default on AMD and Intel (x86) systems.

+ * The progress bar displayed while the installation is in progress is now more accurate.

+ * The `pykickstart` and `blivet` libraries, which are used to handle Kickstart processing and storage configuration respectively, have been both upgraded to version `3`.

+ * Payload is usable usable in `InstallClass`

+ * You can now add sources in `InstallClass`

+ * `InstallClass` is now selected at runtime based on the `.buildstamp` file.

+ * `InstallClass` can now specify a Fedora variant which it should run on. This is defined by the `Variant` item in the `.buildstamp` file.

  == Providing Feedback on Release Notes

  

These three are all related, it's installer stuff all in one section - that's why they're all on one branch. Also my bad about the commit/revert.
