What new RPMs in those documents do you find particularly fun and useful?

I thought this was a discussion list?

The release notes/announcement don't necessarily answer the question I
am asking.  Recall that ccache was not highlighted in any release
documents for F7, but it was the single most useful thing in that
release for me.

So, if you think there are some neat, useful RPMs in F8 I should
investigate, let me know.

I suppose I should track down the IcedTea packages and find out if
they help me do anything.  Will probably just break all the Java stuff
I already have set up :(
