-   [ Open vSwitch team ]
-   * New upstream version
-   - First supported release of OVN.  See ovn-architecture(7) for more
-     details.
-   - ovsdb-server:
-     * New "monitor_cond" "monitor_cond_update" and "update2" extensions to
-       RFC 7047.
-   - OpenFlow:
-     * OpenFlow 1.3+ bundles are now supported for group mods as well as
-       flow mods and port mods.  Both 'atomic' and 'ordered' bundle
-       flags are supported for group mods as well as flow mods.
-     * OpenFlow 1.1+ OFPT_QUEUE_GET_CONFIG_REQUEST now supports OFPP_ANY.
-     * OpenFlow 1.4+ OFPMP_QUEUE_DESC is now supported.
-     * OpenFlow 1.4+ OFPT_TABLE_STATUS is now supported.
-     * New property-based packet-in message format NXT_PACKET_IN2 with support
-       for arbitrary user-provided data and for serializing flow table
-       traversal into a continuation for later resumption.
-     * New extension message NXT_SET_ASYNC_CONFIG2 to allow OpenFlow 1.4-like
-       control over asynchronous messages in earlier versions of OpenFlow.
-     * OpenFlow 1.3 Extension 230, adding OpenFlow Bundles support, is
-       now implemented.  Only flow mod and port mod messages are supported
-       in bundles.
-     * New OpenFlow extension NXM_NX_MPLS_TTL to provide access to MPLS TTL.
-     * New output option, output(port=N,max_len=M), to allow truncating a
-       packet to size M bytes when outputting to port N.
-     * New command OFPGC_ADD_OR_MOD for OFPT_GROUP_MOD message that adds a
-       new group or modifies an existing groups
-     * The optional OpenFlow packet buffering feature is deprecated in
-       this release, and will be removed in the next OVS release
-       (2.7).  After the change OVS always sends the 'buffer_id' as
-       0xffffffff in packet-in messages and will send an error
-       response if any other value of this field is included in
-       packet-out and flow mod sent by a controller.  Controllers are
-       already expected to work properly in cases where the switch can

-       to IPFIX records.
-   - Linux:
-     * New QoS type "linux-noop" that prevents Open vSwitch from trying to
-       manage QoS for a given port (useful when other software manages QoS).

-openvswitch (2.5.0-1) unstable; urgency=low
-   [ Open vSwitch team ]
-   * New upstream version
-   - Dropped support for Python older than version 2.7.  As a consequence,
-     using Open vSwitch 2.5 or later on XenServer 6.5 or earlier (which
-     have Python 2.4) requires first installing Python 2.7.
-   - OpenFlow:
-     * Group chaining (where one OpenFlow group triggers another) is
-       now supported.
-     * OpenFlow 1.4+ "importance" is now considered for flow eviction.
-     * OpenFlow 1.4+ OFPTC_EVICTION is now implemented.
-     * OpenFlow 1.4+ OFPTC_VACANCY_EVENTS is now implemented.
-     * OpenFlow 1.4+ OFPMP_TABLE_DESC is now implemented.
-     * Allow modifying the ICMPv4/ICMPv6 type and code fields.
-     * OpenFlow 1.4+ OFPT_SET_ASYNC_CONFIG and OFPT_GET_ASYNC_CONFIG are
-       now implemented.
-   - ovs-ofctl:
-     * New "out_group" keyword for OpenFlow 1.1+ matching on output group.
-   - Tunnels:
-     * Geneve tunnels can now match and set options and the OAM bit.
-     * The nonstandard GRE64 tunnel extension has been dropped.
-   - Support Multicast Listener Discovery (MLDv1 and MLDv2).
-   - Add 'symmetric_l3l4' and 'symmetric_l3l4+udp' hash functions.
-   - sFlow agent now reports tunnel and MPLS structures.
-   - New 'check-system-userspace', 'check-kmod' and 'check-kernel' Makefile
-     targets to run a new system testsuite.  These tests can be run inside
-     a Vagrant box.  See INSTALL.md for details
-   - Mark --syslog-target argument as deprecated.  It will be removed in
-     the next OVS release.
-   - Added --user option to all daemons
-   - Add support for connection tracking through the new "ct" action
-     and "ct_state"/"ct_zone"/"ct_mark"/"ct_label" match fields.  Only
-     available on Linux kernels with the connection tracking module loaded.
-   - Add experimental version of OVN.  OVN, the Open Virtual Network, is a
-     system to support virtual network abstraction.  OVN complements the
-     existing capabilities of OVS to add native support for virtual network
-     abstractions, such as virtual L2 and L3 overlays and security groups.
-   - RHEL packaging:
-     * DPDK ports may now be created via network scripts (see README.RHEL).
-   - DPDK:
-     * Requires DPDK 2.2
-     * Added multiqueue support to vhost-user
-     * Note: QEMU 2.5+ required for multiqueue support

-
-openvswitch (2.4.0-1) unstable; urgency=low
-   [ Open vSwitch team ]
-   * New upstream version
-   - Flow table modifications are now atomic, meaning that each packet
-     now sees a coherent version of the OpenFlow pipeline.  For
-     example, if a controller removes all flows with a single OpenFlow
-     "flow_mod", no packet sees an intermediate version of the OpenFlow
-     pipeline where only some of the flows have been deleted.
-   - Added support for SFQ, FQ_CoDel and CoDel qdiscs.
-   - Add bash command-line completion support for ovs-vsctl Please check
-     utilities/ovs-command-compgen.INSTALL.md for how to use.
-   - The MAC learning feature now includes per-port fairness to mitigate
-     MAC flooding attacks.
-   - New support for a "conjunctive match" OpenFlow extension, which
-     allows constructing OpenFlow matches of the form "field1 in
-     {a,b,c...} AND field2 in {d,e,f...}" and generalizations.  For details,
-     see documentation for the "conjunction" action in ovs-ofctl(8).
-   - Add bash command-line completion support for ovs-appctl/ovs-dpctl/
-     ovs-ofctl/ovsdb-tool commands.  Please check
-     utilities/ovs-command-compgen.INSTALL.md for how to use.
-   - The "learn" action supports a new flag "delete_learned" that causes
-     the learned flows to be deleted when the flow with the "learn" action
-     is deleted.
-   - Basic support for the Geneve tunneling protocol. It is not yet
-     possible to generate or match options. This is planned for a future
-     release. The protocol is documented at
-     http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-gross-geneve-00
-   - The OVS database now reports controller rate limiting statistics.
-   - sflow now exports information about LACP-based bonds, port names, and
-     OpenFlow port numbers, as well as datapath performance counters.
-   - ovs-dpctl functionality is now available for datapaths integrated
-     into ovs-vswitchd, via ovs-appctl.  Some existing ovs-appctl
-     commands are now redundant and will be removed in a future
-     release.  See ovs-vswitchd(8) for details.
-   - OpenFlow:
-     * OpenFlow 1.4 bundles are now supported for flow mods and port
-       mods.  For flow mods, both 'atomic' and 'ordered' bundle flags
-       are trivially supported, as all bundled messages are executed
-       in the order they were added and all flow table modifications
-       are now atomic to the datapath.  Port mods may not appear in
-       atomic bundles, as port status modifications are not atomic.
-     * IPv6 flow label and neighbor discovery fields are now modifiable.
-     * OpenFlow 1.5 extended registers are now supported.
-     * The OpenFlow 1.5 actset_output field is now supported.
-     * OpenFlow 1.5 Copy-Field action is now supported.
-     * OpenFlow 1.5 masked Set-Field action is now supported.
-     * OpenFlow 1.3+ table features requests are now supported (read-only).
-     * Nicira extension "move" actions may now be included in action sets.
-     * "resubmit" actions may now be included in action sets.  The resubmit
-       is executed last, and only if the action set has no "output" or "group"
-       action.
-     * OpenFlow 1.4+ flow "importance" is now maintained in the flow table.
-     * A new Netronome extension to OpenFlow 1.5+ allows control over the
-       fields hashed for OpenFlow select groups.  See "selection_method" and
-       related options in ovs-ofctl(8) for details.
-   - ovs-ofctl has a new '--bundle' option that makes the flow mod commands
-     ('add-flow', 'add-flows', 'mod-flows', 'del-flows', and 'replace-flows')
-     use an OpenFlow 1.4 bundle to operate the modifications as a single
-     atomic transaction.  If any of the flow mods in a transaction fail, none
-     of them are executed.  All flow mods in a bundle appear to datapath
-     lookups simultaneously.
-   - ovs-ofctl 'add-flow' and 'add-flows' commands now accept arbitrary flow
-     mods as an input by allowing the flow specification to start with an
-     explicit 'add', 'modify', 'modify_strict', 'delete', or 'delete_strict'
-     keyword.  A missing keyword is treated as 'add', so this is fully
-     backwards compatible.  With the new '--bundle' option all the flow mods
-     are executed as a single atomic transaction using an OpenFlow 1.4 bundle.
-   - ovs-pki: Changed message digest algorithm from MD5 to SHA-1 because
-     MD5 is no longer secure and some operating systems have started to disable
-     it in OpenSSL.
-   - ovsdb-server: New OVSDB protocol extension allows inequality tests on
-     "optional scalar" columns.  See ovsdb-server(1) for details.
-   - ovs-vsctl now permits immutable columns in a new row to be modified in
-     the same transaction that creates the row.
-   - test-controller has been renamed ovs-testcontroller at request of users
-     who find it useful for testing basic OpenFlow setups.  It is still not
-     a necessary or desirable part of most Open vSwitch deployments.
-   - Support for travis-ci.org based continuous integration builds has been
-     added. Build failures are reported to build at openvswitch.org. See INSTALL.md
-     file for additional details.
-   - Support for the Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (IEEE 802.1D-2004).
-     The implementation has been tested successfully against the Ixia Automated
-     Network Validation Library (ANVL).
-   - Stats are no longer updated on fake bond interface.
-   - Keep active bond slave selection across OVS restart.
-   - A simple wrapper script, 'ovs-docker', to integrate OVS with Docker
-     containers. If and when there is a native integration of Open vSwitch
-     with Docker, the wrapper script will be retired.
-   - Added support for DPDK Tunneling. VXLAN, GRE, and Geneve are supported
-     protocols. This is generic tunneling mechanism for userspace datapath.
-   - Support for multicast snooping (IGMPv1, IGMPv2 and IGMPv3)
-   - Support for Linux kernels up to 4.0.x
-   - The documentation now use the term 'destination' to mean one of syslog,
-     console or file for vlog logging instead of the previously used term
-     'facility'.
-   - Support for VXLAN Group Policy extension
-   - Initial support for the IETF Auto-Attach SPBM draft standard. This
-     contains rudimentary support for the LLDP protocol as needed for
-     Auto-Attach.
-   - The default OpenFlow and OVSDB ports are now the IANA-assigned
-     numbers.  OpenFlow is 6653 and OVSDB is 6640.
-   - Support for DPDK vHost.
-   - Support for outer UDP checksums in Geneve and VXLAN.
-   - The kernel vports with dependencies are no longer part of the overall
-     openvswitch.ko but built and loaded automatically as individual kernel
-     modules (vport-*.ko).
-   - Support for STT tunneling.
-   - Support to configure method (--syslog-method argument) that determines
-     how daemons will talk with syslog.
-   - Support for "ovs-appctl vlog/list-pattern" command that lets to query
-     logging message format for each destination.
-   - GRE64 and ipsec_gre64 tunnel protocol is deprecated and will be removed
-     from OVS v2.5 release.
-   * The openvswitch-testcontroller package is new.  It reintroduces the
-     simple OpenFlow controller that was packaged with Open vSwitch prior to
-     version 2.1, at request of users who find it useful for testing basic
-     OpenFlow setups.  It is still not a necessary or desirable part of most
-     Open vSwitch deployments.

-   - OpenFlow 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3 are now enabled by default in
-     ovs-vswitchd.
-   - Linux kernel datapath now has an exact match cache optimizing the
-     flow matching process.
-   - Datapath flows now have partially wildcarded tranport port field
-     matches.  This reduces userspace upcalls, but increases the
-     number of different masks in the datapath.  The kernel datapath
-     exact match cache removes the overhead of matching the incoming
-     packets with the larger number of masks, but when paired with an
-     older kernel module, some workloads may perform worse with the

-openvswitch (1.9.0-1) unstable; urgency=low
-   [ Open vSwitch team ]
-   * New upstream version
-    - Datapath:
-      - Support for ipv6 set action.
-      - SKB mark matching and setting.
-      - support for Linux kernels up to 3.8
-    - FreeBSD is now a supported platform, thanks to code contributions from
-      Gaetano Catalli, Ed Maste, and Giuseppe Lettieri.
-    - ovs-bugtool: New --ovs option to report only OVS related information.
-    - New %t and %T log escapes to identify the subprogram within a
-      cooperating group of processes or threads that emitted a log message.
-      The default log patterns now include this information.
-    - OpenFlow:
-      - Allow bitwise masking for SHA and THA fields in ARP, SLL and TLL
-        fields in IPv6 neighbor discovery messages, and IPv6 flow label.
-      - Adds support for writing to the metadata field for a flow.
-    - Tunneling:
-      - The tunneling code no longer assumes input and output keys are
-        symmetric.  If they are not, PMTUD needs to be disabled for
-        tunneling to work. Note this only applies to flow-based keys.
-      - New support for a nonstandard form of GRE that supports a 64-bit key.
-      - Tunnel Path MTU Discovery default value was set to 'disabled'.
-        This feature is deprecated and will be removed soon.
-      - Tunnel header caching removed.
-    - ovs-ofctl:
-      - Commands and actions that accept port numbers now also accept keywords
-        that represent those ports (such as LOCAL, NONE, and ALL).  This is
-        also the recommended way to specify these ports, for compatibility
-        with OpenFlow 1.1 and later (which use the OpenFlow 1.0 numbers
-        for these ports for different purposes).
-    - ovs-dpctl:
-      - Support requesting the port number with the "port_no" option in
-        the "add-if" command.
-    - ovs-pki: The "online PKI" features have been removed, along with
-      the ovs-pki-cgi program that facilitated it, because of some
-      alarmist insecurity claims.  We do not believe that these claims
-      are true, but because we do not know of any users for this
-      feature it seems better on balance to remove it.  (The ovs-pki-cgi
-      program was not included in distribution packaging.)
-    - ovsdb-server now enforces the immutability of immutable columns.  This
-      was not enforced in earlier versions due to an oversight.
-    - The following features are now deprecated.  They will be removed no
-      earlier than February 2013.  Please email dev at openvswitch.org with
-      concerns.
-        - Bridge compatibility.
-        - Stable bond mode.
-        - The autopath action.
-        - Interface type "null".
-        - Numeric values for reserved ports (see "ovs-ofctl" note above).
-        - Tunnel Path MTU Discovery.
-        - CAPWAP tunnel support.
-    - The data in the RARP packets can now be matched in the same way as the
-      data in ARP packets.

-openvswitch (1.8.0-1) unstable; urgency=low
-   [ Open vSwitch team ]
-   * New upstream version
-    *** Internal only release ***
-    - New FAQ.  Please send updates and additions!
-    - Authors of controllers, please read the new section titled "Action
-      Reproduction" in DESIGN, which describes an Open vSwitch change in
-      behavior in corner cases that may affect some controllers.
-    - ovs-l3ping:
-        - A new test utility that can create L3 tunnel between two Open
-          vSwitches and detect connectivity issues.
-    - ovs-ofctl:
-        - New --sort and --rsort options for "dump-flows" command.
-        - "mod-port" command can now control all OpenFlow config flags.
-    - OpenFlow:
-      - Allow general bitwise masking for IPv4 and IPv6 addresses in
-        IPv4, IPv6, and ARP packets.  (Previously, only CIDR masks
-        were allowed.)
-      - Allow support for arbitrary Ethernet masks.  (Previously, only
-        the multicast bit in the destination address could be individually
-        masked.)
-      - New field OXM_OF_METADATA, to align with OpenFlow 1.1.
-      - The OFPST_QUEUE request now reports an error if a specified port or
-        queue does not exist, or for requests for a specific queue on all
-        ports, if the specified queue does not exist on any port.  (Previous
-        versions generally reported an empty set of results.)
-      - New "flow monitor" feature to allow controllers to be notified of
-        flow table changes as they happen.
-    - Additional protocols are not mirrored and dropped when forward-bpdu is
-      false.  For a full list, see the ovs-vswitchd.conf.db man page.
-    - Open vSwitch now sends RARP packets in situations where it previously
-      sent a custom protocol, making it consistent with behavior of QEMU and
-      VMware.
-    - All Open vSwitch programs and log files now show timestamps in UTC,
-      instead the local timezone, by default.

-openvswitch (1.7.0-1) unstable; urgency=low
-  [ Open vSwitch team ]
-  * New upstream version
-    - kernel modules are renamed. openvswitch_mod.ko is now
-      openvswitch.ko and brcompat_mod.ko is now brcompat.ko.
-    - Increased the number of NXM registers to 8.
-    - Added ability to configure dscp setting for manager and controller
-      connections.  By default, these connections have a DSCP value of
-      Internetwork Control (0xc0).
-    - Added the granular link health statistics, 'cfm_health', to an
-      interface.
-    - OpenFlow:
-        - Added support to mask nd_target for ICMPv6 neighbor discovery flows.
-        - Added support for OpenFlow 1.3 port description (OFPMP_PORT_DESC)
-          multipart messages.
-    - ovs-ofctl:
-        - Added the "dump-ports-desc" command to retrieve port
-          information using the new port description multipart messages.
-    - ovs-test:
-        - Added support for spawning ovs-test server from the client.
-        - Now ovs-test is able to automatically create test bridges and ports.
-    - "ovs-dpctl dump-flows" now prints observed TCP flags in TCP flows.
-    - Tripled flow setup performance.
-    - The "coverage/log" command previously available through ovs-appctl
-      has been replaced by "coverage/show".  The new command replies with
-      coverage counter values, instead of logging them.

-    - bonding
-        - LACP bonds no longer fall back to balance-slb when negotiations fail.
-          Instead they drop traffic.
-        - The default bond_mode changed from SLB to active-backup, to protect
-          unsuspecting users from the significant risks of SLB bonds (which are
-          documented in vswitchd/INTERNALS).
-        - Load balancing can be disabled by setting the bond-rebalance-interval
-          to zero.
-    - OpenFlow:
-        - Added support for bitwise matching on TCP and UDP ports.
-          See ovs-ofctl(8) for more information.
-        - NXM flow dumps now include times elapsed toward idle and hard
-          timeouts.
-        - Added an OpenFlow extension NXT_SET_ASYNC_CONFIG that allows
-          controllers more precise control over which OpenFlow messages they
-          receive asynchronously.
-        - New "fin_timeout" action.
-        - Added "fin_timeout" support to "learn" action.
-    - The default MAC learning timeout has been increased from 60 seconds
-      to 300 seconds.  The MAC learning timeout is now configurable.
-    - When QoS settings for an interface do not configure a default queue
-      (queue 0), Open vSwitch now uses a default configuration for that
-      queue, instead of dropping all packets as in previous versions.
-    - Logging to console and file will have UTC timestamp as a default for all
-      the daemons. An example of the default format is 2012-01-27T16:35:17Z.
-      ovs-appctl can be used to change the default format as before.
-    - New support for limiting the number of flows in an OpenFlow flow
-      table, with configurable policy for evicting flows upon
-      overflow.  See the Flow_Table table in ovs-vswitch.conf.db(5)
-      for more information.
-    - New "enable-async-messages" column in the Controller table.  If set to
-      false, OpenFlow connections to the controller will initially have all
-      asynchronous messages disabled, overriding normal OpenFlow behavior.
-    - ofproto-provider interface:
-        - "struct rule" has a new member "used" that ofproto implementations
-          should maintain by updating with ofproto_rule_update_used().
-    - ovsdb-client:
-        - The new option --timestamp causes the "monitor" command to print
-          a timestamp with every update.
-    - CFM module CCM broadcasts can now be tagged with an 802.1p priority.

-openvswitch (1.4.0-1) unstable; urgency=low
-  [ Open vSwitch team ]
-  * New upstream version
-    - Compatible with Open vSwitch kernel module included in Linux 3.3.
-    - New "VLAN splinters" feature to work around buggy device drivers
-      in old Linux versions.  (This feature is deprecated.  When
-      broken device drivers are no longer in widespread use, we will
-      delete this feature.)  See ovs-vswitchd.conf.db(5) for more
-      information.
-    - OpenFlow:
-       - Added ability to match on IPv6 flow label through NXM.
-       - Added ability to match on ECN bits in IPv4 and IPv6 through NXM.
-       - Added ability to match on TTL in IPv4 and IPv6 through NXM.
-       - Added ability to modify ECN bits in IPv4.
-       - Added ability to modify TTL in IPv4.
-    - ovs-vswitchd:
-       - Don't require the "normal" action to use mirrors.  Traffic will
-         now be properly mirrored for any flows, regardless of their
-         actions.
-       - Track packet and byte statistics sent on mirrors.
-    - ovs-appctl:
-      - New "fdb/flush" command to flush bridge's MAC learning table.
-    - ovs-test:
-      - A new distributed testing tool that allows one to diagnose performance
-        and connectivity issues. This tool currently is not included in RH or
-        Xen packages.
-    - RHEL packaging now supports integration with Red Hat network scripts.
-    - Debian: Depend on python (>= 2.7) | python-argparse instead of
-              python-argparse to avoid pulling in python2.6

-openvswitch (1.3.0-1) unstable; urgency=low
-  [ Open vSwitch team ]
-  * New upstream version
-    - OpenFlow:
-      - Added an OpenFlow extension which allows the "output" action to accept
-        NXM fields.
-      - Added an OpenFlow extension for flexible learning.
-      - Bumped number of NXM registers from four to five.
-    - ovs-appctl:
-      - New "version" command to determine version of running daemon.
-      - If no argument is provided for "cfm/show", displays detailed
-        information about all interfaces with CFM enabled.
-      - If no argument is provided for "lacp/show", displays detailed
-        information about all ports with LACP enabled.
-    - ovs-vswitchd:
-      - The software switch now supports 255 OpenFlow tables, instead
-        of just one.  By default, only table 0 is consulted, but the
-        new NXAST_RESUBMIT_TABLE action can look up in additional
-        tables.  Tables 128 and above are reserved for use by the
-        switch itself; please use only tables 0 through 127.
-      - Add support for 802.1D spanning tree (STP).
-    - Fragment handling extensions:
-      - New OFPC_FRAG_NX_MATCH fragment handling mode, in which L4
-        fields are made available for matching in fragments with
-        offset 0.
-      - New NXM_NX_IP_FRAG match field for matching IP fragments (usable
-        via "ip_frag" in ovs-ofctl).
-      - New ovs-ofctl "get-frags" and "set-frags" commands to get and set
-        fragment handling policy.
-    - CAPWAP tunneling now supports an extension to transport a 64-key.  By
-      default it remains compatible with the old version and other
-      standards-based implementations.
-    - Flow setups are now processed in a round-robin manner across ports
-      to prevent any single client from monopolizing the CPU and conducting
-      a denial of service attack.
-    - Added support for native VLAN tagging.  A new "vlan_mode"
-      parameter can be set for "port". Possible values: "access",
-      "trunk", "native-tagged" and "native-untagged".
-    - test-openflowd has been removed.  Please use ovs-vswitchd instead.

-openvswitch (1.2.0-1) unstable; urgency=low
-
-  [ Open vSwitch team ]
-  * New upstream version
-    - New "ofproto" abstraction layer to ease porting to hardware
-      switching ASICs.
-    - Packaging for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.6 and 6.0.
-    - Datapath support for Linux kernels up to 3.0.
-    - OpenFlow:
-      - New "bundle" and "bundle_load" action extensions.
-    - Database:
-      - Implement table unique constraints.
-      - Support cooperative locking between callers.
-    - ovs-dpctl:
-      - New "-s" option for "show" command prints packet and byte
-        counters for each port.
-    - ovs-ofctl:
-      - New "--readd" option for "replace-flows".
-    - ovs-vsctl:
-      - New "show" command to print an overview of configuration.
-      - New "comment" command to add remark that explains intentions.
-    - ovs-brcompatd has been rewritten to fix long-standing bugs.
-    - ovs-openflowd has been renamed test-openflowd and moved into the
-      tests directory.  Its presence confused too many users.  Please
-      use ovs-vswitchd instead.
-    - New ovs-benchmark utility to test flow setup performance.
-    - A new log level "off" has been added.  Configuring a log facility
-      "off" prevents any messages from being logged to it.  Previously,
-      "emer" was effectively "off" because no messages were ever logged at
-      level "emer".  Now, errors that cause a process to exit are logged
-      at "emer" level.
-    - "configure" option --with-l26 has been renamed --with-linux, and
-      --with-l26-source has been renamed --with-linux-source.  The old
-      names will be removed after the next release, so please update
-      your scripts.
-    - The "-2.6" suffix has been dropped from the datapath/linux-2.6 and
-      datapath/linux-2.6/compat-2.6 directories.
-    - Feature removals:
-      - Dropped support for "tun_id_from_cookie" OpenFlow extension.
-        Please use the extensible match extensions instead.
-      - Removed the Maintenance_Point and Monitor tables in an effort
-        to simplify 802.1ag configuration.
-    - Performance and scalability improvements
