Fedora Many fixes. Check the changelog for details.
Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 3
Name        : NetworkManager
Version     : 0.3.4                      
Release     : 1.1.0.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 DHCP,
NetworkManager is _intended_ to replace default routes, obtain IP addresses
from a DHCP server, and change nameservers whenever it sees fit.

Update Information:

Many fixes.  Check the changelog for details.
