wired and wireless network manager - metapackage

Wicd is a general-purpose network configuration server which aims to provide a simple but flexible interface for connecting to networks. Its features include: wide variety of settings. * ability to connect to (and maintain profiles for) both wired and wireless networks; * support for many encryption schemes, including WEP, WPA, WPA2 and custom schemes; * wireless-tools compatibility; * tray icon showing network activity and signal strength; * lack of GNOME dependencies (although it does require GTK+), making it easy to use in Xfce, Fluxbox, Openbox, Enlightenment, etc.

This is a metapackage, it allows installation of all the components of Wicd, including one of the clients, which must be manually chosen.

    Before connecting, this will copied to /etc/dhclient.conf, after
    a backup of the original file has been made. The backup would be
    restored after the connection terminates.

wicd (1.7.0+ds1-5+squeeze3) proposed-updates; urgency=low

  * One more fix to 31-fix_local_privilege_escalation.patch: wicd
    uses dbus.String at runtime, which inherits unicode, while the
    patch was tested with 'normal' strings (type 'str'). This should
    hopefully be the last upload concerning the CVE.
