I'm pleased to announce the release of NetworkManager 1.0.8, the

of 1.0.x series as well as users of older 0.9.10.x series upgrade
this release which is D-Bus and C API backwards compatible.

I notice that a new header was added

This header is used in
/usr/include/libnm/nm-version.h:#include <nm-version-macros.h>

The libnm.pc file doesn't add add /usr/include/NetworkManager
to its include path, so this looks like it might be broken.

Hi Michael,

This seems correct and as intended to me.

Since 1.0 there are two libraries:

(A) libnm-glib: existed from pre-1.0 time and is considered legacy.
    It is actually is split in several parts:
       NetworkManager.pc (headers in /usr/include/NetworkManager)
       libnm-util.pc (headers in /usr/include/NetworkManager)
       libnm-glib.pc (headers in /usr/include/libnm-glib)
       libnm-glib-vpn.pc (headers in /usr/include/libnm-glib)

(B) libnm: a new version to replace the above. Note that
    it merges the parts togther to one:
       libnm.pc (headers in /usr/include/libnm).

These libraries are independent, especially libnm must not use any
headers from libnm-glib.
E.g. the file nm-version-macros.h is present twice:
  (α) /usr/include/NetworkManager/nm-version-macros.h
  (β) /usr/include/libnm/nm-version-macros.h

(don't you get nm-version-macros.h installed in both places? That would
be a bug).

In Fedora we package the two libraries are separate packages:
  (a) NetworkManager-glib,
  (b) NetworkManager-libnm

one day, we hope to entirely drop the legacy libraries (a).

Shouldn't libnm.pc have
Requires: NetworkManager >= 1.0.8

Yeah maybe, I dunno. Lubomir?
