Network Management describes the interaction between the KDE desktop and the system's network information and configuration layers. This means:
Support in Solid for the informational parts of the NetworkManager interface is largely complete, in kdebase/workspace/libs/solid. Backends for NetworkManager 0.6 and 0.7 exist, in kdebase/workspace/solid/networkmanager*. Backends for other platforms would be welcome, contact the team for help on getting involved.
A Plasmoid is work in progress and can be found in playground/base/plasma/applets/networkmanager and playground/base/plasma/engines/networkmanager.
A rewrite of KNetworkManager for KDE 3 (by openSUSE) is nearly complete. This supports NetworkManager 0.7, which has a different interface to NetworkManager 0.6. More information can be found at the openSUSE KNetworkManager project page.
