Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 3
Name        : NetworkManager
Version     : 0.3.3                      
Release     : 1.cvs20050112.1.fc3                  
Summary     : Network link manager and user applications
Description :
NetworkManager attempts to keep an active network connection available
at all
times.  It is intended only for the desktop use-case, and is not
intended for
usage on servers.   The point of NetworkManager is to make networking
configuration and setup as painless and automatic as possible.  If using
NetworkManager is _intended_ to replace default routes, obtain IP
from a DHCP server, and change nameservers whenever it sees fit.

Update Information:

Please see RPM Changelog for fixes and new features
since the last version.
