- Fixes 1035786 (and its duplicate 1040924)
* Tue Dec 10 2013 Avesh Agarwal <avagarwa at redhat.com> -
- New upstream release
- Fixed 926225
- Fixed dependency to libreswan.
- Created a new sub package NetworkManager-openswan-gnome
- Various other spec file fixes.
- Additional code changes are as follows:
- Fixed an issue where proper network stack is not loaded unless
  _stackmanager is run before starting pluto daemon service.
- Fixed the termination operation of pluto daemon to comply with
  libreswan changes.
- Fixed various debug messages.
- Fixed initiation of pluto daemon by this plugin to reflect the
  changes in libreaswan.
- Fixed defaults values for more parameters to help the VPN
  connection stay more reliable.
- Rewrote pluto watch API which watches the pluto process for its status.
  Fixed memory leak issues as not all child processes were reaped correctly.
  Also g_spwan_close_pid was not being called after children were reaped.
  Also modified debugs and added more to help with debugging in the future.
- Fixed an issue where nm-openswan service is searching for ipsec binary in
  both /sbin and /usr/sbin leading to same operation twice, as /sbin is just
  symlink to /usr/sbin, so removed /sbin from the search paths.
- Fixed some libreswan related macro changes.
- Fixed netmask issue when sending IP information to the nm openswan
  plugin service.
- Fixed the current code as it does not set the default route field
  NM_VPN_PLUGIN_IP4_CONFIG_NEVER_DEFAULT when sending VPN information
  to nm-openswan plugin. This fix sets the field to TRUE.
- Fixed some issues found by coverity scan.
- Fixed an issue where writing configuration on stdin should not end with
  \n as it gives error. It used to work previously, but not with latest
  NetworkManager versions.
- libreswan related fixes, as some macros have been modified after forking
  to libreswan from openswan.
- openswan/libreswan does not provide tun0 interface, so fixed the code
  where it sends tun0 interface.
- Fix prcoessing of nm-openswan-dialog.ui file and added more error notifications.
- Fixed dead code based on coverity scan.
- Fixed gnomekeyring lib dependencies.
- Fixed Networkmanager and related lib dependencies.
- Fixed gtk label max width issue by setting it to 35.
- NM-openswan was missing support for nm-openswan-auth-dialog.desktop.in.in.
  So added a new nm-openswan-auth-dialog.desktop.in.in, and modified related
  Makefile and configure.ac files.
