Fedora Update Notification
2010-09-02 20:07:29

Name        : NetworkManager
Product     : Fedora 12
Version     : 0.8.1
Release     : 6.git20100831.fc12
URL         : http://www.gnome.org/projects/NetworkManager/
Summary     : Network connection manager and user applications
Description :
NetworkManager is a system network service that manages your network devices
and connections, attempting to keep active network connectivity when available.
It manages ethernet, WiFi, mobile broadband (WWAN), and PPPoE devices, and
provides VPN integration with a variety of different VPN services.

Update Information:

This update fixes a security issue caused by dbus-glib (CVE-2010-1172), enhances interaction with the /etc/hosts file, enables DHCPv6-only configurations, ensures that connections will not fail is the DHCP lease unexpectedly expires and is reacquired, works around unstable behavior of proprietary wireless drivers, quiets annoying warning messages, fixes crashes when editing system and WPA Enterprise connections, and hides mobile broadband PIN/PUK codes when asking the user for them. 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. For Fedora 12 this update additionally fixes IPv6 connection issues, issues with suspend/hibernate, and handling of system WiFi connections that use ASCII WEP keys.
