Fedora Update Notification
2010-01-15 21:22:29

Name        : NetworkManager
Product     : Fedora 12
Version     : 0.7.998
Release     : 2.git20100106.fc12
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 also adds IPv6 addressing and routes support for system settings (rh
#523288) and provides support for ppp-2.4.5.
