This is the first release candidate for the next 1.18 stable version. Please refer to the NEWS file for the full list of updates in this version: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/mobile-broadband/ModemManager/-/blob/master/NEWS
The following notes are directed to package maintainers:
* This version now requires:
** glib2 >= 2.56
** libgudev >= 232
** libmbim >= 1.26.0 (for the optional MBIM support)
** libqmi >= 1.30.0 (for the optional QMI support)
** libqrtr-glib >= 1.0.0 (for the optional QRTR support)
* The ModemManager.service file for systemd integration provided in the sources is updated as follows:
** 'CAP_NET_ADMIN' is now required in the 'CapabilityBoundingSet' field.
** 'AF_NETLINK' and 'AF_QIPCRTR' are now required in the 'RestrictAddressFamilies' field.
If the system where ModemManager is being integrated provides a custom systemd service configuration, these updates should be considered.
* The LEGACY and PARANOID filter types that were allowed options in the '--filter-policy' option in the ModemManager daemon were deprecated in version 1.16.0 and have now been completely removed, along with the vid:pid blacklist of devices and the vid:pid greylist of RS232<->USB adapters.
* Building from git no longer requires autoconf-archive, the needed AX_ macros are now shipped inside m4/.
