Not quite correct. The systemd package in jessie does ship
systemd-networkd, but it is disabled by default.
If you want to use networkd, you'd have to run
"systemctl enable systemd-network.service"
and configure it.

networkd in v215, which is shipped in jessie, is missing some important
features though, like e.g. the networkctl command line tool.
I'd consider networkd in jessie a tech preview. Good enough for users to
play with it in simple environments and get used to it, but not mature
yet to have it enabled by default.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
