Matthias and I have been working on the network panel for a large chunk of this week, now we have NetworkManager 0.9:
Quite a lot of stuff works, but there is lots more to do. If you’re using odd connection types like WIMAX, we would appreciate any help testing. At the moment, editing the low level connection details is done in nm-connection-editor, but we’ll roll this functionality into the panel for 3.2. I’ve upset the translators enough already.
If you’re testing, ensure you also rebuild NetworkManager and network-manager-applet using jhbuild.
