=============================================== NetworkManager-1.0.2 Overview of changes since NetworkManager-1.0 =============================================== This is a new stable release of NetworkManager. Notable changes include: * Wi-Fi devices now indicate support for 2GHz and 5GHz frequencies * "nmcli device" output now indicates physical port ID * New config items added to the 'ifcfg-rh' plugin: - IPV4_ROUTE_METRIC and IPV6_ROUTE_METRIC - DEVTIMEOUT - IPADDR and PREFIX are now supported for specifying address ranges of shared IPv4 connections * Dispatcher scripts now get a CONNECTION_FILENAME variable with the path to the configuration file for the connection * An example dispatcher script that is able to apply complex routing rules (such as setting up policy-based routing) for 'ifcfg-rh' connections was added to examples/dispatcher/. * 'mode' key of Bond device options property now accepts numeric values * Connection attempts for devices without carrier on startup now wait for carrier to appear within a short timeout instead of failing immediately. This makes system startup more robust. * Bridge connectivity is now properly restored on resume from suspend * The D-Bus name is acquired earlier during the daemon startup. This makes it possible for the systemd service manager to optimize the service startup so that services that require networking are activated sooner contributing to faster system start up time. * A lot of memory leak problems were fixed, resulting in reduced memory usage. Many of them were discovered as a result of improvements in use of Valgrind in the testing infrastructure. * Management of 'teamd' daemon instances for Team devices is now more robust. * The 'dnsmasq' daemon respawns when it terminates and it is configured for management of DNS resolver configuration * Hostnames that are not fully qualified are no longer sent to a DHCPv6 server for a dynamic DNS update * Connection UUIDs are now checked for uniqueness when connection configurations are read * Receipt of a NDP Router Advertisement can no longer lower the IPv6 hop limit (CVE-2015-2924) * Many other bugs were fixed * Updates to Telugu, Turkish, Polish, German, Gujarati, Italian and Russian translations
