Announcing connman.net

Intel and Nokia are pleased to jointly launch the ConnMan project, an open source project to accelerate and expand development of internet connection management for Linux Devices. ConnMan will be utilized as a technology within Moblin and Maemo.

Connman.net is now the place to bring developers together who are interested in furthering the development of internet connection management within Linux.

Review the source code for more information.

ConnMan is licensed under GPLv2, and provides a daemon for managing internet connections within Linux devices. ConnMan is a fully modular system that can be extended, through plug-ins, to support all kinds of wired or wireless technologies. Configuration methods, like DHCP and domain name resolving, are implemented using plug-ins as well. The plug-in approach allows for easy adaption and modification for various use cases.

Nokia and Intel will jointly maintain the ConnMan project. We'd like to invite all developers to join the connman.net effort and community.
