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 issues with UI applets showing the wrong state after suspend/resume or airplane mode, an issue with reading VLAN configuration, waits longer for slow-to-connect WWAN devices, fixes a crash with some PPPoE configurations, fixes applet signal icons with newer versions of libpng, and other stability issues.
