    It's dnf and it seems to be a drop in replacement for yum or at least that's been my experience.

    Code:
    yum search package   = dnf search package
    yum install package  = dnf install package
    yum update           = dnf update
    You get the picture. It is installed in Fedora 20 as is yum. I don't know if there are any potential problems with mixing the use of both. One of the things I like about dnf over yum is that it doesn't refresh the repositories every bloody time you run the command!

    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    Yum isn't deprecated. At least not yet. I believe that the current thought is that dnf may replace yum in Fedora 22.

    I was reading that they were aiming for the end of this year which I would have guessed at Fedora 21 but maybe it's been delayed.
