Derived from Fedora 18 stable, this release comes with the usual Korora extras out of the box, but now also includes: Adobe Flash plugin; experimental support for Valve's Steam client; unburden-home-dir, which moves cache files (like in Firefox profiles) onto RAMFS at login; undistract-me, which pops up a GUI notification when a terminal command has completed.
