New features:

  • New Modem Manager 0.7 API supported as well as legacy Modem Manager 0.6 and Wader APIs.

  • Traffic consumption history feature added.
  • Keyboard accelerators needed to switch pages and use application functions added.
  • Application can be minimized to tray or messaging menu (messaging menu works in Ubuntu only).

  • Application window size and position can be saved and restored on next run.
  • New SMS messages can be placed on top of list.
  • GNOME global menu integration.

Architecture improvements:

  • Support code for modem and connection managing applications moved into modules.
  • Configuration and data files stored in XDG standard directories.
  • Signals instead of polling used for SMS messages handling (except for legacy Modem Manager versions).
  • Netlink socket events instead of polling used for network interface changes monitoring.
  • Netlink requests instead of procfs file parsing used for network interface traffic amount monitoring.
  • Application can work without NetworkManager using pppd connections database.
  • And big amount of code refactored...

Big thanks to all people who helped with development, translation or just suggested useful things!
