Plasma NM: first release

Yes, that is right, we have the first release of Plasma NM and from now on there is going to be regular Plasma NM releases.

During Solid Sprint I accepted the job of being KDE's Network Management maintainer. I would like to thank Alex Fiestas and Will Stephenson (former maintainer) for trusting me for this job. One of the tasks of a maintainer is releasing software, so here it is:

MD5Sum: 0ec58c1f119d0fe2be5045c6cc1dfe9c
SHA1Sum: 4c60e4cd30f69a2bc47091b7472040e0f69c4404

0.8.80 means 0.9.0_beta1 (first beta version of Plasma NM compatible with NetworkManager-0.9.x). There are translations for 49 languages in the tar ball, though they are not 100% complete yet:

ar ast bs ca ca@valencia cs da de el en_GB eo es et fi fr ga gl hr hu is it ja km ko lt lv mai ms nb nds nl nn pa pl pt pt_BR ro ru sk sl sq sv th tr ug uk wa zh_CN zh_TW

This release is basically what is in nm09 branch as of October 01 and does not contain the usability changes I have blogged about. I plan to release 0.9.0 final with most complete translations as possible. The usability changes will probably go to 0.9.1 along with libnm-qt port.

Yay, thanks a lot - this is one of the best news in the last time wrt network management :) . As soon as the stable version 0.9 is out, be sure to start nagging your distributions about it ;D
