Packages changed: NetworkManager (1.36.4 -> 1.38.0)
=== Details ===
==== NetworkManager ==== Version update (1.36.4 -> 1.38.0) Subpackages: NetworkManager-lang NetworkManager-pppoe libnm0 typelib-1_0-NM-1_0
- Recommend NetworkNanager-wifi from the main package: after the split, there is currently nothing pulling in NM-wifi. Preferably this would happen based on wifi chips prsence, but that is not yet done (boo#1199550).
- Modify NetworkManager.spec: Split into a few small subpackages (bsc#1198128).
BEWARE: NetworkManager has been split into smaller chunks to better server various use cases, making it possible to be installed with smaller foot prints.
Users that decide to 'disable recommends' need to be extra careful here: the NetworkManager-wifi plugin is only recommended (NM on wired does not need the plugin).
Always keep in mind: disabling recommends means you claim you know better than others. so you have to live with the fact that non- mandatory features (which you would claim mandatory for your machine) are not automatically installed.
