ConnMan 1.12 was released Tuesday, February 26th, 2013.

This release enhances network provisioning by adding ethernet, VPN and NFC provisioning support. There are a few important bugfixes included in the release, please consider upgrading from older versions.

New user visible features in this release are:

    VPN network configurations can now be provisioned via configuration files (Jukka Rissanen). See vpn-config-format.txt for provisioning file location and syntax.
    A 'GetProperties' method call has been added to net.connman.vpn.Connection (Jukka Rissanen).
    Ethernet networks can now be provisioned (Jukka Rissanen). As some of the items are applicable also to WiFi networks, WiFi provisioning support was enhanced at the same time. As ethernet networks are automatically enabled by plugging in the network cable, no provisioning files need to be written for normal day-to-day use.
    NFC WiFi provisioning (Tomasz Bursztyka). The features needed from neard are at the time of writing available only in the neard git repository, but will be available in upcoming neard versions newer than 0.9. With neard support we seem to have hit a minor glitch, libdbus version 1.4.12 or later is actually needed when compiling the neard NFC plugin. If it is not possible to install a newer libdbus version than the currently required version 1.4, one can for the time being disable NFC support by adding option --disable-neard to the configure script. More information about neard can be found at 

In addition to the features above, especially iptables, VPN and command line client code have seen a number of fixes and refactoring.
