Phoronix: NetworkManager 0.7 Nears Release
The wonderful Red Hat software project for easily managing wired and wireless networks on Linux, NetworkManager, is preparing for its first major release in over two years. NetworkManager 0.7 has been in development for a long time with many improvements made, but there has been no formal release...
Congrats to Red Hat for going out and making one network manager to "catch them all". Lets hope it'll continue being the leading one and will iron out the flaws that keep others about.
Duke Nukem Forever Linux will be released before any of those..

Hopefully NM 0.7 will have all the major bugs stomped out, as I liked the app but its bugs are annoying enough to keep me from using it regularly
Is there a way to set persistent DNS servers in NetworkManager? I would really like to use OpenDNS on all (wired and wireless) connections. I have been using ifplugd with a /etc/dhcp/dhclient-exit-hooks file that resets /etc/resolv.conf every time dhcp is used. I would like to use NetworkManager for the wireless if possible though...
