(Picking a semi-random message to follow up to).

I think we're fairly much settled on this, and for GNOME/GTK+ users it
should be working. Ian is still looking at the KDE support (for which
see https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=363917 ).

You can build NetworkManager-openconnect from git (master and nm-1-2
branches should be identical) or I've built packages for Fedora rawhide
(which should also work in Fedora 24) at

Until NetworkManager 1.4 you won't be able to *configure* a Juniper VPN
through the GUI (unless we make a temporary workaround or backport the
solution) but you can do it with nmcli on the command line, for

 nmcli con add type vpn \
	con-name "My Juniper VPN" \
	ifname "*" \
	vpn-type openconnect \
	-- \
	vpn.data "gateway=vpn.example.com,protocol=nc"

Please give it a try and let me know if there are any problems. If it's
all OK, we'll ship a NetworkManager-openconnect 1.2.4 release and put
it in Fedora 24 (at least) too.
