Thank you for the kind words. We're glad you like it!
There seems to be a problem with its IPv6 support: on my system
(Debian Sid, iwd 1.19 from distro repo), iwd works perfectly out of the
box, and continues to work with "EnableNetworkConfiguration=True", but
with "EnableIPv6=true", it segfaults immediately upon connect. (This is
especially awkward when iwd is being managed by systemd, since I then
get an endless loop of the daemon crashing and immediately restarting,
with a steady stream of messages hitting syslog ;))
I believe this issue is already fixed in ell upstream. Commit d0f00698245a
("dhcp6: Switch to BOUND before LEASE_OBTAINED") here:
Note that IPv6 support in iwd is still somewhat experimental since we still lack
support for SLAAC, but DHCPv6 should be mostly functional.
