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.
