Retiring Plasma NN 0.9.0.x

I am in the process of retiring Plasma NM 0.9.0.x (aka old Plasma NM applet). The new applet (Plasma NM >= 0.9.8.x) is already shipped with all major distributions. I may release Plasma NM 0.9.0.12 with some few bugfixes if someone is interested in that. However after 0.9.0.12 there will be no further releases for the old applet. It will enter in unmaintained state and I will ask sysadmin to remove/disable NetworkManagement product from bugs.kde.org. There is already product plasma-nm to report bugs in the new applet.

A last release would be great.

@mrueg: Wouldn't it be better to have this fixed in the new plasma-nm?

According to the bugs.gentoo.org link, Zoltan Puskas said: "Im also aware that plasma-nm is favoured over this package, however plasma-nm miserably fails to handle openconnect VPN connections with signed certificates and post login passwords."

Well the fix is already in the 0.9.0.x branch, so either nm-0.9.0.x gets a final release or we have to patch our package.
