Summary of info in Bug #498478:

Mock-up for network-manager indicator by rugby471: http://launchpadlibrarian.net/37416125/drawing-nm.png

Response from Ted Gould:

"The other problem here is that simply dbusmenu isn't capable enough to do this design, and won't be for Lucid. It is our goal to get to where this type of design is possible, but we need to get the foundation solid first. I believe that we'll have to leave network manager in the legacy notification area for Lucid. Not ideal, but a reality of having fixed 6 month development cycles."

Just a link to re-design mockups planned by NetworkManager developers on year ago: http://blogs.gnome.org/dcbw/2009/05/26/face-transplants-are-the-new-botox/

A quote from that post: "Turns out GtkMenu doesn’t work well for multiple connections or multiple active devices." :)

no but you can use indicator-network instead of network-manager if you want
the indicator.

Will it be fixed in 10.10?

There is an indicator for nm-applet available starting in Natty. I'm marking this bug Fix Released.

Don't hesitate to report any bugs you find against it, but please do so by reporting them against the network-manager-applet package ;)
