Netcfg 2.8.2 release
by admin ·
After six months of waiting out the next version of the manager of network connections Arch Linux.
Such a long delay in releasing a new version can be explained as the stability of the previous release, and a significant number of changes, including those related to otvyazki netcfg from the system initialization distribution.The new release has appeared in [testing] for a long time, and for the time being there have been several increases in the version number, but adding to the stable package repository and placing messages on the release took place just now.
The main changes are:
- wifi-menu – command line utility with a pseudo-interface, based on dialog, an informal alternative to the package wifi-select to select the wireless network from the list;
- Improved support for systemd;
- a new type of connection for PPPoE-connections;
- removed support for types of connections with the suffixes-old,-dbus,-iproute – use the types of connections without a suffix;
- somewhat changed the syntax of the command line;
- netcfg no longer depends on initscripts.
From the not so big, but still iconic changes worth noting:
- netcfg appeared in your site ;
- configuration in the / etc / rc.conf (array NETWORKS) deprecated, users are encouraged to read the settings in / etc / conf.d / netcfg;
- scripts in / etc / network.d / hooks are no longer supported, because “they are still no use.”
Also, a number of changes associated with dhcpcd and interfaces, and many bug fixes.
