Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
.NetworkManager rebased to version 1.26.0 The `NetworkManager` packages have been upgraded to upstream version 1.26.0, which provides a number of enhancements and bug fixes over the previous version: * NetworkManager resets the auto-negotiation, speed, and duplex setting to their original value when deactivating a device. * Wi-Fi profiles connect now automatically if all previous activation attempts failed. This means that an initial failure to auto-connect to the network no longer blocks the automatism. A side effect is that existing Wi-Fi profiles that were previously blocked now connect automatically. * The `nm-settings-nmcli(5)` and `nm-settings-dbus(5)` man pages have been added. * Support for a number of bridge parameters has been added. * Support for virtual routing and forwarding (VRF) interfaces has been added. For further details, see link:https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/8/html/configuring_and_managing_networking/configuring-virtual-routing-and-forwarding-vrf_configuring-and-managing-networking#permanently-reusing-the-same-ip-address-on-different-interfaces_configuring-virtual-routing-and-forwarding-vrf[Permanently reusing the same IP address on different interfaces]. * Support for Opportunistic Wireless Encryption mode (OWE) for Wi-Fi networks has been added. * NetworkManager now supports 31-bit prefixes on IPv4 point-to-point links according to link:https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3021[RFC 3021]. * The `nmcli` utility now supports removing settings using the `nmcli connection modify <connection_name> remove <setting>` command. * NetworkManager no longer creates and activates slave devices if a master device is missing. For further information about notable changes, read the upstream release notes: * link:https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/NetworkManager/NetworkManager/-/blob/1.26.0/NEWS[NetworkManager 1.26.0] * link:https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/NetworkManager/NetworkManager/-/blob/1.24.0/NEWS[NetworkManager 1.24.0]

Description Beniamino Galvani 2020-03-18 15:37:13 UTC
Rebase NM in RHEL 8.3 to the latest upstream version to pick up new features and recent fixes. This is safe to do as newer versions of NM never break API/ABI and guarantee backwards compatibility. The project also has an extensive CI suite to avoid regressions.
