NetworkManager-0.9.10
Overview of changes since NetworkManager-0.9.8
==============================================
This is a new stable release of NetworkManager. Notable changes include:
* Added a new curses-based client called "nmtui" for easier console operation
* Added interactive connection editing and creation mode to nmcli with detailed
help and tab completion support
* nmcli bash completion has been greatly improved
* Added support for Data Center Bridging (DCB) and FibreChannel over Ethernet (FCoE)
* IPv6 autoconfiguration is now done in userspace with libndp instead of the kernel
* The D-Bus daemon is no longer required for root-only operation
* WiFi, ADSL, WWAN, and Bluetooth are now optional plugins, reducing install size
* Added support for Infiniband Partitions
* Network connection files are no longer watched by default, use "nmcli con reload"
to notice chagnes made externally or set "monitor-connection-files=true" in
NetworkManager.conf's [main] section
* Connections can now be locked to interface names in addition to hardware/MAC addresses
* A new "ignore-carrier" configuration option is available to ignore the carrier
on selected interfaces
* A new "dns=none" option has been added to suppress changes to /etc/resolv.conf
* Changes made to IP addresses, IP routes, and master/slave relationships from
external tools are now recognized and reflected in the D-Bus API
* Assuming the existing configuration of interfaces without changing that
configuration is now more reliable
* The 'root' user is no longer subject to PolicyKit access controls and usage
of D-Bus "at_console" permissions has been removed
* Configuration file snippets can be dropped in /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d to
change smaller sets of configuration options
* Added IP-level support for more software/virtual interfaces types including
GRE, macvlan, macvtap, tun, tap, veth, and vxlan interfaces
* All network interfaces known to the kernel are now exposed through
the D-Bus interface
* Improved support for routing-only VPNs like openswan/libreswan/strongswan
* Added support for "temporary" connections which are not saved to disk until
requested
* Added WWAN autoconnect support and fixed issues with airplane mode handling
* NetworkManager-wait-online systemd service behavior is more reliable
* The dispatcher timeout has increased to 10 minutes, and new "pre-up" and
"pre-down" events have been added which block activation until complete
* NetworkManager no longer prevents Wake-on-LAN functionality from working
* PPPoE now requires userland "rp-pppoe" to work around kernel bugs with
that prevent detecting server-side termination of the PPP link
* An ARP announcement is now sent after IPv4 addresses are configured
* Added a DNS plugin for dnssec-trigger for better DNSSEC operation
* More properties are now exposed via the D-Bus properties interface in
addition to getter/setter functions
* Added support for custom IP address ranges for Shared connections
* Fatal connection failures now block automatic reconnection more reliably
* VPN connection IP details are now available via the D-Bus interface
* VPN plugins can now request additional/new secrets from the user during the
connection process
