dnf.plugin.tracer — DNF tracer Plugin
Calls tracer after every successful transaction. It finds running applications which are outdated by transaction’s packages.
There you can see DNF output with dnf-plugins-extras-tracer installed:
$[FrostyX ~]-> sudo dnf update vim-X11 ... Running transaction Upgrading : vim-common-2:7.4.179-1.fc20.i686 1/6 Upgrading : vim-X11-2:7.4.179-1.fc20.i686 2/6 Upgrading : vim-enhanced-2:7.4.179-1.fc20.i686 3/6 ... Upgraded: vim-X11.i686 2:7.4.179-1.fc20 vim-common.i686 2:7.4.179-1.fc20 vim-enhanced.i686 2:7.4.179-1.fc20 You should restart: gvim Done!
It is a good idea to restart those applications, because they can be potentially dangerous. They can contain old security issues, which are fixed in new version.
