Bug Description

In maverick, nm-applet displayed an animation while connecting to a wireless network. This seems to have broken in natty; now it only displays a single static frame from the animation.

network-manager-applet (0.8.3+git.20101209t081952.0330eca-0ubuntu3) natty; urgency=low

  * Re-instate animations while processing network association phases, it tends
    to be annoying and confusing without them. (LP: #694534)
  * Provide and use premade theme icons for wireless strength *with security*,
    which include the padlock already composited.
    - Enable icons in menus for wireless strength and security. (LP: #683896)
    - Re-use the same icons to notify the user that they are connected to a
      VPN-secured connection. (LP: #696442)
  * Clean up code paths for GSM and CDMA devices which still tried to create
    a custom widget to add to the menu -- replaced it with a simple image
    menu item.
  * Escape underscores in SSID names so they display with the correct name
    rather than underlining the next character (as a mnemonic).
