Bug Description

NetworkManager 0.9.4.0 will be released by March 23; and is my current target as a stable release for NetworkManager, network-manager-applet and the VPN plugins.

Changes for NetworkManager so far (NM 0.9.4~rc1), on top of the package already in Precise are below, meaningful, non-bugfix changes are annotated:

    - wifi: make sure we're connected to netlink before using it
    - libnm-glib: add 'registered' property for NMSecretAgent (trivial, meant to support fixes for GNOME-Shell assertion errors)
    - keyfile: fix testcases after InfiniBand transport-mode default change
    - wifi: disable Ad-Hoc WPA connections (LP: #905748) (closing a bug report from Ubuntu)
    - infiniband: fix missing sentinel
    - Add a workaround for a problem creating InfiniBand connections
    - core: treat missing IPv6 setting as AUTO (makes IP6 be enabled by default for connections that support it, already largely available in Ubuntu, this cleans up some use cases, I consider it borderline as a feature, so it's listed here)
    - libnm-glib: add errors to nm_device_connection_compatible() and device
      classes (bugfix: gives clearer errors for matching connections to devices)
    - vpn: add a new field so VPN plugins can specify multiple domains (feature: supports fixes for a regression when using dnsmasq with VPNs; where only one VPN search domain gets added, see bug 924013)
    - dnsmasq: allow proxying dnssec data (upstreamed Ubuntu patch)
    - gsm: pass the PPP auth preferences for STATIC and DHCP device use
    - core: allow IPv4 to fail by default (feature; make IPv4 optional, connections still fail if both ipv4 and ipv6 timeout; see bug 761558)

network-manager-applet is bugfix only, I'll file separate bugs for the VPN plugins.

Did you test you aren't braking the KDE NM applet?

Assuming Scott's concern that every NM frontend continues to work, this seems like a reasonable changeset.

Err, assuming Scott's concern is addressed, that is. :P

It doesn't break the KDE NM applet :)
