Overview of changes since NetworkManager-0.9.10
This is a new stable release of NetworkManager. Notable changes include:
* A new 'libnm' GObject-based client library to replace libnm-util/libnm-glib
- IP address, IP route, hardware address, and other properties are now
represented as strings
- Based on GIO's GDBus bindings instead of dbus-glib
- Uses modern GObject APIs including GAsyncResult and GVariant
- For more information see
* Devices and VPN connections now have individual default routes. Priorities
are handled through configurable route metrics.
* nmcli now supports password requests and PolicyKit authorizations
* A faster, lighter-weight (though less capable) internal DHCP client has been
added and may be selected with the "dhcp=internal" option. It supports
fewer DHCP options and does not yet support DHCPv6.
* A new 'configure-and-quit=yes' option has been added for environments with
less dynamic network configuration
* When running on 3.17 and later kernels, NetworkManager handles IPv6LL address
assignment to ensure that IPv6 connectivity is not enabled until
intentionally configured by the user
* NetworkManager no longer causes the nl80211 kernel module to be loaded on
systems with no Wi-Fi devices
* Bluetooth DUN support now works with Bluez 5.x
* VPN connections can now persist across link changes and suspend/resume if
their VPN plugin supports this feature
* A new 'ibft' settings plugin has been added to support firmware-based
iBFT/iSCSI configurations. This functionality has been moved to 'ibft'
from the 'ifcfg-rh' plugin.
* IPv6 router advertisement MTUs are now respected
* NetworkManager no longer requires polkit libraries at runtime when Polkit
support is enabled, and Polkit can be disabled at build time too
* Automatically created connections are now deleted when their device goes away
* 'nmcli dev connect' now attemts to create a connection if none exists
* Manually configured static IPv6 configuration is kept even if SLAAC fails
* Manpages for the 'keyfile' and 'ifcfg-rh' plugins now describe their
configuration syntax and available options
* WWAN connections now support IPv6 if the modem and provider support IPv6
* Software devices (bridge, bond, team, etc) can now be deleted from the D-Bus
API or with nmcli
* The manpages, documentation, and API annotations have received many cleanups
