ifupdown source package in Ubuntu


ifupdown ( trusty; urgency=medium

  [ St├ęphane Graber ]
  * Allow setting the MTU and HWADDR on manual interfaces. (LP: #1294807)
  * The above change also means that manual interfaces will now be
    brought up and down (ias many users expected until now).
  * Disable link.defn as it's not covering all the cases supported by
    the vlan and bridge hooks and so causes more harm than good at this
    point. (LP: #1295304)
  * Also enable network-interface-container for OpenVZ. (LP: #1294155)
  * Update networking.init to exit 1 on reload when on an upstart system.
  * Pass --force to ifdown in network-interface to silence errors on
    non-existing interfaces. (LP: #1295620)

  [ Dimitri John Ledkov ]
  * Prevent the ability to stop or restart networking service
    interactively. As that is not supported. Networking job is only stopped
    during shutdown sequence. (LP: #1072518)
