Fedora Update Notification
2009-10-21 00:12:23

Name        : NetworkManager
Product     : Fedora 11
Version     : 0.7.2
Release     : 1.fc11
URL         : http://www.gnome.org/projects/NetworkManager/
Summary     : Network connection 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 improves mobile broadband support for ZTE, Onda, Sierra, Ericsson,
and Option devices.  In addition, PEAP-GTC support was added, along with VPN,
ethernet carrier detection, and various 802.1x authentication fixes.
