While Fedora 24 isn't set to be released until H1'2016, developers are already working on getting a NetworkManager 1.2 pre-release into the distribution's archive early.

NetworkManager 1.2 is a major update that is set to happen later this year. Given the magnitude of the update and NetworkManager being important to the Fedora/GNOME desktop, the developers want to get the fresh code into F24 packages early.

"We believe the code base is in a very solid state and this will make it possible to start ironing out the remaining wrinkles early and make use of the new features. Among usual pile of fixes this release will bring new client libraries (libnm and libnma) that essentially modernized and streamlined versions of existing libraries (libnm-glib, libnm-vpn, libnm-util and libnm -gtk)", wrote Lubomir Rintel in a announcement about the new NetworkManager packages for F24 coming soon and that VPN plug-in maintainers will need to prepare some changes.

NetworkManager 1.2 will feature significant improvements to nmcli comman-line interface to NM, support for multiple simultaneous VPN connections, WiFI P2P, better proxy settings, and a range of other work.
