NetworkManagerQt 0.9.8.2 is out

After a long time here are some news on what is going on with NMQt:

. NMQt is going to be part of Frameworks 5 so this may be the last release on its own.

. We are still working on making NMQt ready for KF5, so it may not appear in the next version of KF5 just yet.

. Plasma NM is going to be part of kde-workspace and as you may know NMQt is a dependency for Plasma NM. Plasma 5 release is approaching and since we may not get NMQt ready for KF5 in time we decided to ship a snapshort of NMQt with kde-workspace so that Plasma NM compiles. In the future we will remove the snapshot and rely on the NMQt in KF5.

Bugs fixed in NMQt 0.9.8.2:

. Avoid crashes when NetworkManager is restarted.
. Respect external CMAKE_CXX_FLAGS values.
331771: Add a workaround to always get updated IPv[46]Config.
. Properly update and notify about changed reference accesspoint.
. Bump required version of NetworkManager to 0.9.8.4.
. Emit signal after available connection is removed instead of before.
. Bump soversion to indicate different binary application interface (ABI) than the previous releases (0.9.8.0 to be precise).

Plasma NM 0.9.0.10

Plasma NM 0.9.0.10

SHA256Sum: dce8d080256f1c2a6b70d61cb46e623839f6c0a0f260a6901d9ad68746ce7dfc

Diffferently from what I wrote in Plasma NM 0.9.0.9 release notes this version supports NetworkManager 0.9.6.x and 0.9.8.x as requested by some users. However, this version still requires NetworkManager 0.9.8 for connection activation error notification to work properly. If you use it with NetworkManager 0.9.6.x do not report bugs regarding Plasma NM's notifications. You can still disabling them if they do not work properly for you.

Changelog:

299863: Fix crash when adding WPA2 Enterprise connections.
. Re-add support to NetworkManager 0.9.6.x.
. Add IPv6 information into connection details.
324880: Fix signal quality and access technology updating for 3G connections.
. Small optimization: disable updating traffic plotter if popup is closed.

NetworkManagerQt 0.9.8.0 Released

For those interested in programming with NetworkManager using Qt here is the lastest NetworkManagerQt library. This new version supports NetworkManager 0.9.8 and is the backend used by the new Plasma NM applet.

ModemManagerQt 1.0.0 Released

ModemManagerQt is a Qt library to talking to ModemManager using dbus. Today I am glad to release the third version version of this library. The main difference here is the support to ModemManager from 0.8 up to 1.0.

One of the cool uses of ModemManagerQt is the SMS sending/receiving support in KDE Telepathy.

Plasma NM: very important (old) news

Hi guys. Just to keep it clear: since the release of the new Plasma NM applet (version 0.9.3) the networkmanagement repository is mostly deprecated. Only NM/0.9 branch has any use (for now). That branch holds the old stable Plasma NM 0.9.0.x version. The one that I release from time to time since October 2011.

Unless you have a patch to fix one of bugs in the old Plasma NM 0.9.0.x you should use plasma-nm repository instead of networkmanagement. There is even a frameworks branch in plasma-nm, so it already works with frameworks5, which networkmanagement does not.
