Fedora 9 Update: NetworkManager-0.7.0-0.12.svn4326.fc9



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2008-10321
None
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : NetworkManager
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 0.7.0
Release     : 0.12.svn4326.fc9
URL         : http://www.gnome.org/projects/NetworkManager/
Summary     : Network connection manager and user applications
Description :
NetworkManager attempts to keep an active network connection available at all
times.  It is intended only for the desktop use-case, and is not intended for
usage on servers.   The point of NetworkManager is to make networking
configuration and setup as painless and automatic as possible.  If using DHCP,
NetworkManager is _intended_ to replace default routes, obtain IP addresses
from a DHCP server, and change nameservers whenever it sees fit.
