Fedora Please see RPM Changelog for fixes and new features since the last version.

Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 3
Name        : NetworkManager
Version     : 0.3.3
Release     : 1.cvs20050112.1.fc3
Summary     : Network link manager and user applications
Description :
NetworkManager attempts to keep an active network connection available
at all
times.  It is intended only for the desktop use-case, and is not
intended for
usage on servers.   The point of NetworkManager is to make networking
configuration and setup as painless and automatic as possible.  If using
NetworkManager is _intended_ to replace default routes, obtain IP
from a DHCP server, and change nameservers whenever it sees fit.

Update Information:

Please see RPM Changelog for fixes and new features
since the last version.
* Wed Jan 12 2005  - 0.3.3-1.cvs20050112

- Update to latest CVS
- Fixes to DHCP code
- Link-Local (ZeroConf/Rendezvous) support
- Use bind in "caching-nameserver" mode to work around stupidity
        in glibc's resolver library not recognizing resolv.conf changes
- #rh144818# Clean up the specfile (Patch from Matthias Saou)
- Ad-Hoc mode support with Link-Local addressing only (for now)
- Fixes for device activation race conditions
- Wireless scanning in separate thread

* Wed Dec 08 2004  - 0.3.2-4.3.cvs20041208

- Update to CVS
- Updates to link detection, DHCP code

        block for a connection.  This means services that depend
        on the network may fail if they start right after NM
- Make sure DHCP renew/rebinding works

* Wed Nov 17 2004  - 0.3.2-3.cvs20041117

- Update to CVS
- Fixes to link detection
- Better detection of non-ESSID-broadcasting access points
- Don't dialog-spam the user if a connection fails

* Thu Nov 11 2004  - 0.3.2-2.cvs20041115

- Update to CVS
- Much better link detection, works with Open System authentication
