    Default NetworkManager plasmoid in KDE Current

    OpenSUSE 13.1 comes with NetworkManager kde4 packages and plasmoid-networkmanagement.
    After upgrade to KDE 4.13 it seems it wants to remove these packages as they are not in KDE Current. I did find the following package: plasma-nm. Is this supposed to replace plasmoid-networkmanagement?

    Not in KDE Current:
    NetworkManager-kde4-libs
    NetworkManager-kde4-libs-lang
    NetworkManager-openvpn-kde4
    NetworkManager-pptp-kde4
    NetworkManager-vpnc-kde4
    plasmoid-networkmanagement

    plasma-nm is the new version of plasmoid-networkmanagement, yes.
    It uses libNetworkManagerQt instead of NetworkManager-kde4-libs.

    You can use either plasma-nm from KDE:Current (with libNetworkManagerQt) _or_ plasmoid-networkmanagement from the standard repo (with NetworkManager-kde4-libs and so on), whatever you prefer.

    If you do switch to plasma-nm, you should install the plugins you need as well of course:
    plasma-nm-l2tp, plasma-nm-openconnect, plasma-nm-openswan, plasma-nm-openvpn, plasma-nm-pptp, plasma-nm-strongswan, plasma-nm-vpnc.
