People keep talking about it...

I've been using the [presto plugin for yum]( for a while now (a year? can't remember) but only now it is being pushed as a "cool new feature". Did I miss something here?

Presto allows you to download only the deltas of updated RPM packages, which makes the updates' size decrease a lot and, by consequence, speeds up the updating process. I guess it reached stable status recently and I wasn't paying close attention :(

**UPDATE:** So the changes are not actually on how the plugin works, but actually on [how it accomplishes its tasks]( Now this is new :)
