Overview of changes since NetworkManager-1.14

This is a new stable release of NetworkManager. Notable changes include:

  • Check connectivity per address family.
  • Support "main.systemd-resolved" to let NetworkManager configure DNS settings in systemd-resolved without making it the main DNS plugin of NetworkManager.
  • Write "/var/run/NetworkManager/no-stub-resolv.conf" with original nameservers. That is useful with caching DNS plugins like "systemd-resolved" or "dnsmasq" where "/var/run/NetworkManager/resolv.conf" refers to localhost.
  • Change default "ipv4.dhcp-client-id" setting for the internal DHCP plugin from "duid" to "mac". This is a change in behavior on upgrade when using the internal DHCP plugin (unless the default is overwritten in "NetworkManager.conf" or specified per connection profile).
  • Improve handling of DHCP router options with internal DHCP plugin. For one, accept multiple routers and add a default-route to each. On D-Bus expose the original DNS and NTP servers without cleaning up local nameservers.
  • Allow binding a connections lifetime to the DBus client that activated it.
  • Add support for establishing Wi-Fi Direct connections (Wi-Fi P2P).
  • Add support for WireGuard VPN tunnels to NetworkManager. D-Bus API and libnm support all options. nmcli supports creating and managing WireGuard profiles, with the exception of configuring and showing peers.
  • Add initrd generator to be used by dracut and use it as new way of handling iBFT.
  • Deprecated "plugins.monitor-connection-files" setting in NetworkManager.conf. This option will have no effect in future versions.
  • Add AP and Ad-hoc support for iwd Wi-Fi backend.
  • Warn about invalid settings in "NetworkManager.conf".
  • Support announcing "ANDROID_METERED" DHCP option for shared mode.
  • Support SAE authentication as used for 802.11s Meshing and WPA3-Personal.
  • NetworkManager is no longer installed as D-Bus activatable service.
  • Mark docker bridges as unmanaged via udev rule.
  • Add new PolicyKit permission "org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.wifi.scan" for controlling Wi-Fi scanning.
