Sure. Yum performance continues to improve and this release has a much 
better version.

Also you have a yum reinstall option to reinstall packages easily for 
whatever reasons. The multi-lib policy has also changed so that it will 
install only the "best" architecture packages (ie) it wont install both 
x86 and x86-64 libs. This is configurable if you prefer the previous 
behaviour.

The major related improvement of course is PackageKit. PackageKit is a 
distribution neutral framework and frontend. Refer http://packagekit.org 
for more details.
