NetworkManager 1.2.4 Adds Reverse DNS Entries for IPv6 to Dnsmasq, More Tweaks

Among the changes, we can mention that the rc-manager configuration option received two new values, namely ‘unmanaged’ and ‘symlink’, reverse DNS entries for the IPv6 protocol have been added to Dnsmasq, IPv4 reverse entries now acknowledge the network prefix, and VPN support has been improved for the command-line tool nmcli. Moreover, to avoid issues with multiple active network connections, an egress interface is now being specified for name servers that are being passed to Dnsmasq, users can manually configure the default rc-manager option during compilation, and it’s possible to apply MTU settings to devices that don’t have an IPv4 configuration.
