These are all questions you should be asking on the relevant Fedora
mailing lists, surely. They are Fedora-specific, not really GNOME
questions. Just bear in mind that there is always a small lead time
between when a package is released and when it makes it into a
distribution, even one such as Fedora. They need to some QA on the
releases and ensure that everything works together -- updating one
package may require updating a bunch of other packages and that can be
very time consuming when you have to do it repeatedly.
