NetworkManager 1.6 to Support the systemd-resolved Local DNS Forwarder Backend

NetworkManager 1.6 will probably launch next year and promises exciting new features, including Vala bindings for the libnm library, the ability to keep most network connection up during system shutdown, except Wi-Fi and VPN, and support for removing new connections or disconnect devices to the checkpoint/restore connection functionality. Another interesting feature coming to NetworkManager 1.6 is the ability to read the configuration files from /run/NetworkManager/conf.d as well, which might be useful for configs discovered during system startup. It will also be possible to discover and set up Web Proxy settings with the PacRunner service, as well as to fine-tune the autoconnect behavior.
