Overview of changes since NetworkManager-1.2
This is a new stable release of NetworkManager. Notable changes include:
* The MAC address assigned to a device can now be set according to
different policies: preserve, permanent, random, stable
* NetworkManager now waits for IPv6 DAD to terminate before completing
the activation
* Added support for setting IPv6 tokenized interface identifiers
through the 'ipv6.token' connection property
* Added a 'Reload' D-Bus method to reload configuration and reapply
DNS configuration
* NetworkManager now follows symlinks when accessing resolv.conf and
rc-manager is set to 'file'
* Added support for oFono as modem manager
* The 'may-fail' property of ipv4 and ipv6 settings is now respected
more accurately
* The timeout for requests of secrets to agents has been increased
from 25 to 120 seconds
* Name servers passed to dnsmasq now specify an egress interface to
avoid problems with multiple active connections
* Reverse DNS entries for IPv6 are now added to dnsmasq, and IPv4
reverse entries now honor the network prefix
* A new 'dns-priority' property of ipv4 and ipv6 settings can be used
to tweak the order of servers in resolv.conf when multiple
connections are active
* configure script accepts --enable-{address,undefined}-sanitizer
options to build NetworkManager with GCC sanitizers
* The default resolv.conf manager can now be specified at build time
using the --with-config-dns-rc-manager-default configure option
* NetworkManager is now compiled with --gc-sections to reduce
executable size
* Added a new 'VPN_PLUGIN' logging domain
* It is now possible to change the configuration currently applied on
a device with 'nmcli device modify'
* nmcli invoked without parameters shows an overview of the current
network configuration
* The 'nmcli connection add' syntax has been extended and is now
possible to pass properties (e.g. 'ipv4.dns') along with aliases
* nmtui now returns to initial menu after a sub-form exits
* Improved bash autocompletion for nmcli
* Now devices are disconnected before the system suspends, executing
dispatcher scripts. This allows external applications to be notified
of the change in connectivity
* Dispatcher scripts are now called also when connectivity status
* Many other fixes and improvements
