Fedora 24 Poised To Have NetworkManager 1.2

The latest feature proposed for Fedora 24 and should almost certainly be approved is the landing of NetworkManager 1.2.

NetworkManager 1.2 brings a new libnma library for GUIs, numerous VPN-related additions, support for arbitrary software device hierarchy, support for managing container connectivity, RFC7217 stable privacy addressing, and various CLI improvements.

Given the close ties between Fedora / Red Hat and GNOME / NetworkManager, it's a pretty safe bet that this feature should be approved for Fedora 24 without issues. Details on the planned NetworkManager 1.2 upgrade for Fedora 24 can be found via the Fedora Wiki.

Fedora 24 is planned for release in May and gives plenty of time for this next NetworkManager release to stabilize.
