ConnMan

The ConnMan project provides a daemon for managing internet connections within embedded devices running the Linux operating system. The Connection Manager is designed to be slim and to use as few resources as possible, so it can be easily integrated. It is a fully modular system that can be extended, through plug-ins, to support all kinds of wired or wireless technologies.

ConnMan 1.26

BY Patrik Flykt ON Oct 13, 2014

ConnMan 1.26 was released Sunday, October 12th, 2014.

WiFi P2P support in ConnMan has been significantly improved also in this release by Tomasz Bursztyka and Eduardo Abinader. Applications can now register WiFi Display, UPnP or Bonjour P2P services, which ConnMan makes available to other P2P devices. Acting as a WiFi P2P Group Owner is enabled when needed. In addition, ConnMan will now properly select the WPS push button method when handling incoming connections and authorizes them via the Agent API RequestPeerAuthorization() method call. The primary P2P device type is selected based on systemd-hostnamed device type. As before, wpa_supplicant from upstream git is needed to get all necessary WiFi P2P functionality working.

Other changes visible to users include:

  • DHCPv6 Confirm messages are not supported anymore, as the the address expiration lifetimes are not easily available (Jukka Rissanen). Bugs with DHCPv6 and DHCPv4 have been fixed in addition to IP address and network handling (Jukka Rissanen, Pasi Sjöholm, Peter Meerwald)
  • Interface IPv6 privacy setting is properly set to its intended value when removing a service (Pasi Sjöholm)
  • Add WiFi security type to provisioning files (Patrik Flykt)
  • A service failure state is no longer saved to or loaded from persistent storage (Patrik Flykt)

Thanks for all the hard work and bugfixing goes to Alban Crequy, Andrei Emeltchenko, Claudio Takahasi, Eduardo Abinader, Hannu Mallat, Jukka Rissanen, Jussi Kukkonen, Luiz Augusto von Dentz, Marcel Holtmann, Pasi Sjöholm, Patrik Flykt, Peter Meerwald, Tomasz Bursztyka, Collabora, Intel, Jolla and OpenBossa.
