network-manager ( precise; urgency=low

  * debian/patches/ipw2x00-no-nl80211.patch: workaround ipw2x00 drivers not
    reporting wireless encryption capabilities properly: if caps are 0 (none
    reported), then fail the nl80211 initialization and fallback to wext.
    Thanks to Omar Siam for the patch. (LP: #973241)

    properly initialized.
  * debian/patches/git_core_is_adhoc_wpa_assert_47f9eb8.patch: prevent asserting
    when checking a connection (for whether it is adhoc and WPA) that is not
    a wifi one.

    invalid free() by making sure GError is properly initialized in
    _nm_remote_settings_ensure_inited(). Thanks to Fabien Tassin for reporting.

    - firewall: set interface zone before IP configuration (rh #805405)
    - libnm-glib: ensure bindings-created objects work as expected (rh #802536)
    - mobile: ensure IPv4 timeout fails activation
    - utils: override VPN plugin's never-default when ignoring auto routes

    - infiniband: fix missing sentinel
    - Add a workaround for a problem creating InfiniBand connections
    - core: treat missing IPv6 setting as AUTO
    - libnm-glib: add errors to nm_device_connection_compatible() and device
    - vpn: add a new field so VPN plugins can specify multiple domains
    - dnsmasq: allow proxying dnssec data (upstreamed Ubuntu patch)
    - gsm: pass the PPP auth preferences for STATIC and DHCP device use

  * debian/copyright: update copyright and migrate to format 1.0; thanks to
    Michael Biebl for the work. (LP: #907294)
  * debian/patches/nm-change-dnsmasq-parameters.diff: refreshed.

  * debian/network-manager.postrm: cleanup timestamps and seen-bssids files on

    - fix the migration of /etc/dbus-1/system.d/NetworkManager.conf to its new
      name /etc/dbus-1/system.d/org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.conf, so we do
      not have leftover files after upgrade.
    - reimplement the rename of nm-system-settings.conf to NetworkManager.conf
      in this format (Debian has already done so).

    InfiniBand settings.

    tests. It was in git but missing from the release tarball.

    connection is a billed one.

    other thing that is not shipped in the release tarball.

    - Added VLAN support.
    - Added bonding support.
    - Added Firewalld support.
    - Added support for IP connectivity checking.
    - Updated translations for Ukrainian, Slovenian, Hungarian, Malayalam,
      Polish and Brazilian Portugese.
    - Miscellaneous bugfixes.
  * debian/patches/nm-change-dnsmasq-parameters.diff: refreshed, dropped the
    disabling of --strict-order, since that change made it upstream.
  * debian/patches/avoid-periodic-disk-wakeups.patch: dropped, this was fixed
    slightly differently upstream, keeping periodic updates of the timestamps
    in memory but avoiding to flush the changes to disk, see commit 0be930c.
  * debian/patches/manage-privacy-extensions.patch: dropped, applied upstream;
    the only part that wasn't applied is to default to privacy extensions being
  * debian/patches/enable-ipv6-privacy.patch: since we dropped the previous
    patch, update the defaults for PROP_IP6_PRIVACY to make sure IPv6 privacy
    extensions are enabled by default, to retain the same behavior we already
  * debian/patches/git_libnm-glib_ensure_device_state_aef4340.patch: dropped,
    applied upstream.
  * debian/patches/dnsmasq-dont-read-hosts.patch: dropped, applied upstream.

    does require it, but leave it as just a Suggests because the script is
    simply there to make people's life easier when reporting bugs.
  * debian/patches/git_glib_enum_dbus_nicks_54ef8f3.patch: make sure the nicks
    for NM enums are properly set rather than defaulting to the automatic
    values from glib-mkenums; this should fix the nm-connection-editor bug
    with editing various types of connections. (LP: #951464, #953522)
  * debian/patches/git_libnm-util_wep_caps_assert_bb6da99.patch: fix asserts
    in nm_util_security_valid() when devices (like those which use ipw2200)
