NetworkManager 0.7.1 coming soon
NetworkManager, a free utility for Linux to manage wired, wireless and mobile broadband connections, is about to reach version 0.7.1. Dan Williams of Red Hat and his fellow developers are about to release the update to 0.7.0, originally released in the second half of 2008. The new version will include a large number of fixes, updated translations and new support, including for Internet connections over Bluetooth via GPRS devices.
A release candidate, 0.7.1-rc1, is already available and the team is asking for testers to find any critical blockers (crashes and other odd behaviors) and to report them. There should be additional release candidates arriving in the next few days, before the final release. Once all of the testing has been completed and any critical problems have been caught and fixed, 0.7.1 will be released in time for upcoming Q2 2009 Linux distribution updates.
