New minor version
ModemManager 1.6.0 ------------------------------------------- * This version requires: ** GLib 2.36.0 ** gettext 0.19.3 ** libmbim >= 1.14.0 (for the optional MBIM support) ** libqmi >= 1.16.0 (for the optional QMI support) ** libsystemd >= 209 or libsystemd-login >= 183 (for the optional suspend and resume support) * For distributions using systemd, it is suggested that the new optional suspend/resume is explicitly requested during configure with the new '--with-suspend-resume=systemd' argument. This version comes with the following new features: * Core: ** Implemented support for suspend/resume detection, currently working when systemd is in use. Whenever the system is suspended, we'll flag the modems as invalid so that they are re-probed from scratch when the system is resumed. ** Added cancellation support for the probing operations. ** Reworked and simplified the serial port response processing. * Location interface: ** Added A-GPS support, currently available only for QMI based modems with PDS service. ** Added support for updating the default GPS refresh time. * Time interface: ** New default implementation for all AT-based modems. * Voice interface: ** New DBus interface to allow the management of voice calls, which currently assumes that the audio channel is setup out of ModemManager. * Bearer: ** New support for reporting statistics of the ongoing connection with a new 'Stats' property, currently available for QMI and MBIM based modems. * QMI: ** Implemented support for devices which only work in "raw IP" mode, like the Sierra MC7455. ** Implemented support for SIM related operations using the UIM service, as newer modems with multi-SIM capabilities don't support the legacy DMS UIM operations. ** Implemented support for detecting network-initiated disconnections. * MBIM: ** If online mode fails, try to use the 'DMS Set FCC Authentication' QMI message via the QMI-over-MBIM support, if supported by the device. * udev: ** Added new supported 'ID_MM_PORT_IGNORE' tag to allow fully ignoring ports specified by the user. * mmcli: ** Added command completion. ** Added new operations to use the Voice interface. ** Added new operations to manage the A-GPS settings. * Build: ** Added code coverage support. * Plugins: ** haier: new plugin to support the Haier CE81B. ** thuraya: new plugin for Thuraya satellite modems. ** sierra-legacy,sierra: the implementation for Sierra modems is now split into two different plugins: a 'legacy' one for the old PPP and DirectIP based modems and the standard one for the newer QMI and MBIM based ones. ** dell: new plugin for Dell rebranded devices from Novatel, Sierra or Ericsson. ** gobi: removed the plugin. All non-vendor specific QMI devices should now be managed by the generic plugin. ** mbm: dynamically load the list of supported modes. ** mbm: fixed several connection/disconnection issues. ** simtech: support QMI devices. ** huawei: implemented Voice call management support. ** huawei: use static IP addressing in NDISDUP capable devices if the AT^DHCP response provides the IP details. The following features which were backported to 1.4.x releases are also present in ModemManager 1.6.0: * MBIM: ** The mbim-proxy is used by default. ** Implemented support for disconnection status notification while connected. ** Disabled CDMA capabilities, until properly supported. * QMI: ** The qmi-proxy is used by default. ** If online mode fails, use 'DMS Set FCC Authentication', required by some rebranded Sierra modems (e.g. Dell branded ones). ** Implemented support for loading SIM operator id and name. ** Implemented power-cycle reset functionality. * Plugins: ** telit: added support for new devices, like HE910, UE910 and UL865. ** telit: implemented dynamic port identification. ** telit: implemented unlock retries loading. ** telit: implemented supported/current bands management. ** telit: implemented supported/current modes management. ** telit: implemented modem reset and power down. ** mbm: implemented GPS support for Ericsson HS2350 and H5321gw modems.
