New major versions.

============================================
NetworkManager-1.4
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
* Added ability to create a configuration checkpoints and rolling back
    changes after a timeout.
* NetworkManager now follows symlinks when accessing resolv.conf and
    rc-manager is set to 'file'
* Added support for oFono as modem manager
* The devices now exposes counters of transferred data
* 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' and 'nmcli device reapply'
* 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
    changes
* Many other fixes and improvements
