Similarly in 499th iso
After changing the settings, there is no auto-restart the network
Is bug still valid ?

> Is bug still valid ?
yes on the system with actual updates.
This is normal - change IP need restart NM and system. Close.

No it is not normal. For all systems I could change ip-settings with some wizard without any other interaction to system.
Why this wizard for NM could not restart appropriate service?
Case is actual for 2014.1
Case is actual for Fresh R5 and plasma-nm
We are fine with the current behavior when to really apply IP change you should disable connection and enable it again indicating that you know what you are doing.
Only if upstream developers decide to switch this behavior then we surely will switch it, as well.
