The new Connection Manager for Linux is an attempt to establish a more simple infrastructure for creating networking connections. Main goal is to make the new solution ready for an easy cross-desktop integration. The whole design is modeled to be slim and flexible. This is achieved via a fully plugin and policy based architecture.
The D-Bus based API is service driven and allows for a really simple integration into various application. This gives seamless support for various new technologies like Bluetooth, WiMAX, Ultra-Wideband and 3G.
The Moblin 2.0 distribution picked Connection Manager as one of the core components of their software stack.
