According to Phoronix, NetworkManager 0.8 has been flagged in the git repository and will be on the way shortly!
NetworkManager, the free software project that’s backed by Red Hat and used by many distributions for easily managing network connections
from the Linux desktop, is ready for its version 0.8 milestone. NetworkManager 0.7 is getting old and while NetworkManager 0.7.1 brought some improvements last year, the 0.8 release is rather exciting
Major improvements are better bluetooth support, integration with ModemManager, ipv6, and the removal of HAL (due to its deprecation).
