NetworkManager 1.6 to Support Discovery and Configuration of Web Proxy Settings

And it looks like NetworkManager 1.6 will be an awesome release shipping with Vala bindings for the libnm library, the ability to keep most network connections up during shutdown, except for Wi-Fi, VPN, and other similar connections that cannot be assumed on startup, and support for systemd-resolved as local DNS forwarder backend. Another interesting feature landing in the NetworkManager 1.6 release is the ability to discover and configure Web Proxy settings using the PacRunner service. A brand-new connection.autoconnect_retries property ensures fine-tuning of the autoconnect behavior, and the configuration can now be read from /run/NetworkManager/conf.d too.
