The second beta of the upcoming NetworkManager 1.2 major release is now available.

NetworkManager 1.2 is bringing improved WiFi scanning, MAC address randomization, WiFi power-save, and many other features. NetworkManager 1.2 should be officially released around the time of GNOME 3.20 and is anticipated to land in Fedora 24 for its network management needs.

NetworkManager 1.2 Beta 2 was tagged last night as the newest development snapshot. Compared to the NetworkManager 1.2 Beta 1 release in January, this newest release (v1.9.91) appears to be primarily comprised of bug-fixes. Some of this work includes support for detecting duplicate IPv4 addresses, fixing a race condition that could lead to unauthorized access to connection secrets, dnsmasq improvements, and other fixes and robustness enhancements.
