dhcpcd-gtk is a GTK+ monitor for dhcpcd. It uses dhcpcd-dbus to talk to dhcpcd and wpa_supplicant. At present, dhcpcd-gtk is just an application that sits in the notification area. The icon has several states, showing offline, address negotiation, and online. When attempting to negotiate an address, you get a nice animation. A notification bubble is also shown per interface state change. Future versions will have Access Point selection and dhcpcd configuration options.
