Fedora This update to NetworkManager includes a number of enhancements.
Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 4
Name        : NetworkManager
Version     : 0.4
Release     : 18.FC4
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:

This update to NetworkManager includes a number of enhancements:
o Nameservers in Static IP network profiles are recognized
o Fix applet's idea of the current network
o Play better with SELinux
o Don't endlessly cycle devices when using Static IP configurations

* Wed Jun 15 2005 Dan Williams  - 0.4-18.FC4

- Upstream all patches to CVS in "FC4_BRANCH" branch, use
upstream tarball

* Wed Jun 15 2005 Dan Williams  - 0.4-17.cvs20050404

- Fix static IP configuration to not segfault NetworkManager
- Update NM's idea of the IP address after static config

* Fri Jun 10 2005 Dan Williams  - 0.4-16.cvs20050404

- Pick up nameservers from the active network profile if using static IP
- Fix double-escape of ESSID which would lead to applet not knowing the current
active wireless network
- Don't request write permission to ifcfg-* files (fixes SELinux warnings)
- Don't get driver support level too early (suppresses useless warnings in logs)
