Name        : NetworkManager
Product     : Fedora 14
Version     :
Release     : 1.fc14
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 crash when editing connections which have passwords.  It also stops periodically writing active connection timestamps to /etc (allowing for read-only /etc configurations), and enhances the file format of 'keyfile' connections that contain certificates and private keys.
