There are more in the /extra directory.The official release announcement includes lots more detail: These desktops utilize udev, udisks, and udisks2, and many of thespecifications from freedesktop.org which allow the system administratorto grant use of various hardware devices according to users' groupmembership so that they will be able to use items such as USB flashsticks, USB cameras that appear like USB storage, portable hard drives,CD and DVD media, MP3 players, and more, all without requiring sudo, themount or umount command.
