Bug Description

* Impact

The updates in the stable serie include several fixes for misbehaviour, segfaults and security issues, those are the sort of improvements that should be in the LTS

The detail of the changes can be seen in the NEWS entry
https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/NetworkManager/NetworkManager/blob/nm-1-10/NEWS

* Test case

There is no specific test case for the update, the changelog includes some specific bugs which have their own test case, otherwise it's important to get testing/feedback from users on desktop & server, using IPv4, IPv6, VPN, wifi, eth connections, etc.

* Regression potential

The update is non trivial, there are several changes are IPv6 and DNS (especially in the context of VPNs) handling so it would be good to give those extra testing

Hello Sebastien, or anyone else affected,

Accepted network-manager into bionic-proposed. The package will build now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/network-manager/1.10.14-0ubuntu1 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation on how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested and change the tag from verification-needed-bionic to verification-done-bionic. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed-bionic. In either case, without details of your testing we will not be able to proceed.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance for helping!

N.B. The updated package will be released to -updates after the bug(s) fixed by this package have been verified and the package has been in -proposed for a minimum of 7 days.

Please test and share your feedback on this new version here, but refrain from changing the verification-needed-bionic tag for now. This new version includes many changes and we want to give it an extended testing period to ensure no regressions sneak in, before it is published to bionic-updates. Thanks!
