Fedora Update Notification
2012-09-10 22:02:47

Name        : netcf
Product     : Fedora 17
Version     : 0.2.2
Release     : 1.fc17
URL         : https://fedorahosted.org/netcf/
Summary     : Cross-platform network configuration library
Description :
Netcf is a library used to modify the network configuration of a
system. Network configurations are expressed in a platform-independent
XML format, which netcf translates into changes to the system's
'native' network configuration files.

Update Information:

This update resolves a few longstanding bugs that have been fixed in upstream netcf for quite a long time, but weren't reported in Fedora until recently. (Although the version change seems significant, the difference in functionality is very small - the version bump from 0.1.x to 0.2.x was due to new ports of netcf to other Linux distros.)

* Thu Sep  6 2012 Laine Stump <laine at redhat.com> - 0.2.2-1
- Rebase to netcf-0.2.2
- update gnulib to fix broken build on systems with nwer glibc (which no
  longer provides gets()).
- add ncftool manpage
- interfaces are only "active" if both UP and RUNNING.
- add "bundled(gnulib)" to specfile to indicate that we use a local
  copy of gnulib sources (used by Fedora/RHEL when determining the scope
  of security bugs).
- Fix ipcalc_netmask, which was trimming off the last digit in
  character representations of full-length netmasks (all 4 octets
  having 3 chars each)
- fix missing <bond> and <vlan> elements in status xml
- other minor bugfixes

  [ 1 ] Bug #855453 - libvirt fills message log VERY fast
  [ 2 ] Bug #855571 - dumpxml for a vlan will get error
  [ 3 ] Bug #855572 - Command "virsh iface-dumpxml $BOND" will got an error with netcf-0.1.9-1, but not other version
  [ 4 ] Bug #855573 - failure to define interface with netmask of more than 24 bits
  [ 5 ] Bug #855574 - Starting interface without cable failed with error but actually started.

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update netcf' at the command line.
