Fedora Frog Update

I am currently working on an update that will add support for Fedora 10 and 11. It will remove all support for previous versions of Fedora. I am revising the list of packages that it installs because some of the older packages are no longer needed or in some cases have not been updated in a long time so are no longer relevant. In other cases I am adding packages thatare now available through the new RPMFusion repositories. I hope to finish this major update within two weeks.
