Install Cinnamon 1.3.1 Fedora 16

The first article on Fedora and Cinnamon published on this website was about installing Cinnamon 1.1.3 on Fedora 16. Now that a newer version of Cinnamon has been released, time for an update or upgrade.

If you used the tutorial referenced above to install Cinnamon on Fedora 16, you only need to upgrade because Cinnamon 1.3.1, the latest version, should be available for installation from the package manager. If you have never heard about Cinnamon before, it is a fork of GNOME 3 Shell by the developers of Linux Mint. An attempt to bring sanity to GNOME 3.
