Notable changes included in this snapshot so far include:
* Added support for managing the MACsec links. Requires support in
wpa_supplicant (version newer than 2.6).
* Support for configuration and discovery of Web Proxy settings with
PacRunner service.
* The ipv6.method=shared is now supported, utilizing DHCPv6 Prefix
Delegation option to obtain prefixes for the interface.
* Support for systemd-resolved local DNS forwarder backend.
* The configuration is now read from /run/NetworkManager/conf.d as well.
This is useful for handing over configuration discovered on system
startup to NetworkManager.
* The PPP manager can now be split into a separate package.
* Added initial support for PKCS#11 tokens with 802.1x authentication.
* Introduced Vala bindings for libnm.
* NetworkManager would now keep most connections up on shutdown (except Wi-Fi
connections, VPN connections and other kinds that can't be assumed on
startup)
* The checkpoint/restore connection can now also remove new connections and
disconnect devices that were activated since the checkpoint was taken.
* The configuration is now read from /run/NetworkManager/conf.d as well.
This is useful for handing over configuration discovered on system
startup to NetworkManager.
* New connection.autoconnect_retries property that allows fine-tuning
the autoconnect behavior.
* Support for configuration and discovery of Web Proxy settings with
PacRunner service.
* Support for systemd-resolved local DNS forwarder backend.
* Fix emission of NM-style PropertiesChanged signals and deprecate them
for PropertiesChanged on "org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties" interface.
* Change the meaning of unset "cloned-mac-address" settings from "permanent" to

* The ifcfg parsing code has been reworked for better compatibility with
actual shell variable files.
* The ipv6.method=shared is now supported, utilizing DHCPv6 Prefix
Delegation option to obtain prefixes for the interface.
* nmtui now supports creating and editing IP tunnel connections.
* The libnm client library now uses the D-Bus ObjectManager API that allows
for quicker initialization of the clients.

* Order in which IP addresses are configured is now preserved so that
primary address is selected correctly.
* The PPP manager can now be split into a separate package.
* Details of the DNS information obtained from the connections is now
exposed on the D-Bus and can be inspected with nmcli.

* Added the support for DHCPV6_HOSTNAME and DHCPV6_SEND_HOSTNAME keys in
ifcfg files that control "dhcp-hostname" and "dhcp-send-hostname"
properties of the "ipv6" setting.
* Added initial support for PKCS#11 tokens with 802.1x authentication.
* The stable-addressing for MAC address randomization and RFC7217 IPv6 stable
privacy addressing can now be more flexibly configured using dynamic
randomization seeds in "connection.stable-id".
See "examples/nm-conf.d/30-anon.conf" for example use.
* Added support for managing the MACsec links. Requires support in
wpa_supplicant (version newer than 2.6).
* When the master of Team, Bridge and Bond devices is specified as a connection
UUID, the ifcfg-rh plugin now writes the master connection's interface name
into the ifcfg file for improved compatibility with the legacy network service.
