Fedora Update Notification
2010-07-23 01:56:58

Name        : NetworkManager
Product     : Fedora 13
Version     : 0.8.1
Release     : 1.fc13
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 fixes editing of system DSL connections when using the keyfile
plugin, works around inconsistent active AP reporting by proprietary drivers,
fixes a crash related to VPN passwords, suppresses WiFi scans when connections
are locked to a specific AP, fixes editor crashes relating to PolicyKit
permissions handling, and fixes remembering the "Ignore missing CA certificate"
preference when connecting to WPA Enterprise networks.
