    re-generated based on the shipped template (boo#1210479).
* Wed Apr 05 2023
  - Update OVS version to v3.1.0 and OVN version to v23.03.0
    Some of the features are,
    - ovs-vswitchd now detects changes in CPU affinity and adjusts the number
      of handler and revalidator threads if necessary.
    - AF_XDP:
    * Added support for building with libxdp and libbpf >= 0.7.
    * Support for AF_XDP is now enabled by default if all dependencies are
      available at the build time.  Use --disable-afxdp to disable.
      Use --enable-afxdp to fail the build if dependencies are not present.
    - ovs-appctl:
    * "ovs-appctl ofproto/trace" command can now display port names with the
      "--names" option.
    - OVSDB-IDL:
    * Add the support to specify the persistent uuid for row insert in both
      C and Python IDLs.
    - Windows:
    * Conntrack IPv6 fragment support.
    - DPDK:
    * Add support for DPDK 22.11.1.
    - For the QoS max-rate and STP/RSTP path-cost configuration OVS now assumes
      10 Gbps link speed by default in case the actual link speed cannot be
      determined.  Previously it was 10 Mbps.  Values can still be overridden
      by specifying 'max-rate' or '[r]stp-path-cost' accordingly.
    - OpenFlow:
    * New OpenFlow extension NXT_CT_FLUSH to flush connections matching
      the specified fields.
    - ovs-ctl:
    * New option '--dump-hugepages' to include hugepages in core dumps. This
      can assist with postmortem analysis involving DPDK, but may also produce
      significantly larger core dump files.
    - ovs-dpctl and 'ovs-appctl dpctl/' commands:
    * 'flush-conntrack' is now capable of handling partial 5-tuple,
      with additional optional parameter to specify the reply direction.
    - ovs-ofctl:
    * New command 'flush-conntrack' that accepts zone and 5-tuple (or partial
      5-tuple) for both directions.
    - Support for based continuous integration builds has been
    - Userspace datapath:
    * Add '-secs' argument to appctl 'dpif-netdev/pmd-rxq-show' to show
      the pmd usage of an Rx queue over a configurable time period.
    * Add new experimental PMD load based sleeping feature. PMD threads can
      request to sleep up to a user configured 'pmd-maxsleep' value under
      low load conditions.

    * OVS validated with DPDK 21.11.1.  It is recommended to use this version
      until further releases.
    - Bug fixes
    - libopenvswitch API change:
    * To fix the Undefined Behavior issue causing the compiler to incorrectly
      optimize important parts of code, container iteration macros (e.g.,
      LIST_FOR_EACH) have been re-implemented in a UB-safe way.
    * Backwards compatibility has mostly been preserved, however the
      user-provided pointer is now set to NULL after the loop (unless it
      exited via "break;")
    * Users of libopenvswitch will need to double-check the use of such loop
      macros before compiling with a new version.
    * Since the change is limited to the definitions within the headers, the
      ABI is not affected.
  - refresh 0001-openvswitch-merge-compiler.h-files-into-one-file.patch

* Mon Mar 14 2022
  - Fix installation of files shared with OVN (required for building
    OVN without openvswitch sources), remove custom installation
    of internal headers from SPEC-install section and use patches
    (for upstreaming) instead.
    * install-ovsdb-tools.patch
    * Added 0001-openvswitch-merge-compiler.h-files-into-one-file.patch
    * Added 0002-build-Seperated-common-used-headers.patch
  - Enabled check section / running testsuite by default to validate
    build result. There must no problems with the testsuite anymore as
    upstream runs it by CI and checked before release of a new version.
  - Renamed 0001-Don-t-change-permissions-of-dev-hugepages.patch to
  - Renamed 0001-Run-openvswitch-as-openvswitch-openvswitch.patch to

    * Removed experimental tag for PMD Auto Load Balance.
    * New configuration knob 'other_config:n-offload-threads' to change the
      number of HW offloading threads.
    * DPDK:
    * EAL argument --socket-mem is no longer configured by default upon
      start-up.  If dpdk-socket-mem and dpdk-alloc-mem are not specified,
      DPDK defaults will be used.
    * EAL argument --socket-limit no longer takes on the value of --socket-mem
      by default.  'other_config:dpdk-socket-limit' can be set equal to
      the 'other_config:dpdk-socket-mem' to preserve the legacy memory
      limiting behavior.
    * EAL argument --in-memory is applied by default if supported.
    * Add support for DPDK 21.11.
    * Forbid use of DPDK multiprocess feature.
    * Add support for running threads on cores >= RTE_MAX_LCORE.
    * Python: For SSL support, the use of the pyOpenSSL library has
      been replaced with the native 'ssl' module.

      resynchronization with a clustered database after a brief disconnection,
      i.e. 'monitor_cond_since' monitoring method.
    * Major improvement in the performance of the OVSDB server.
    * OpenFlow:
    * Default selection method for select groups with up to 256 buckets is
      now dp_hash.  Previously this was limited to 64 buckets.  This change
      is mainly for the benefit of OVN load balancing configurations.
    * Encap & Decap action support for MPLS packet type.
  - Update OVS to version 2.16.0
    * Fix CVE-2021-36980 (boo#1188524)
      openvswitch 2.11.0 through 2.15.0 has a use-after-free in
      decode_NXAST_RAW_ENCAP (called from ofpact_decode and ofpacts_decode)
      during the decoding of a RAW_ENCAP action
    * Removed support for 1024-bit Diffie-Hellman key exchange
    * Rate limiting configuration now supports setting packet-per-second
      limits in addition to the previously configurable byte rate settings.
    * OVSDB:
    * Introduced new database service model - "relay".
    * New command line options --record/--replay for ovsdb-server and
      ovsdb-client to record and replay all the incoming transactions,
      monitors, etc.

      'ovs-appctl fdb/add <bridge> <port> <vlan> <mac>'
      'ovs-appctl fdb/del <bridge> <vlan> <mac>'
    * Linux datapath:
    * ovs-vswitchd will configure the kernel module using per-cpu dispatch
      mode (if available). This changes the way upcalls are delivered to
      user space in order to resolve a number of issues with per-vport dispatch.
    * New vswitchd unixctl command `dpif-netlink/dispatch-mode` will return
      the current dispatch mode for each datapath.
  - Update OVS to version 2.15.0
    * OVSDB:
    * Changed format in which ovsdb transactions are stored in
      database files. Now each transaction contains diff of data
      instead of the whole new value of a column.
    * New unixctl command 'ovsdb-server/get-db-storage-status'
    * New unixctl command 'ovsdb-server/memory-trim-on-compaction on|off'.

    * 0001-ofp-util-Fix-buffer-overread-in-ofputil_pull_queue_g.patch
* Tue Feb 28 2017
  - Version bump to 2.7.0 (fate#321541). Some of the changes are:
    * Utilities and daemons that support SSL now allow protocols and
      ciphers to be configured with --ssl-protocols and --ssl-ciphers.
    * OVN:
    - QoS is now implemented via egress shaping rather than ingress policing.
    - DSCP marking is now supported, via the new northbound QoS table.
    - IPAM now supports fixed MAC addresses.
    - Support for source IP address based routing.
    - ovn-trace:
    * New --ovs option to also print OpenFlow flows.
    * put_dhcp_opts and put_dhcp_optsv6 actions may now be traced.
    - Support for managing SSL and remote connection configuration in
      northbound and southbound databases.
    * Fixed regression in table stats maintenance introduced in OVS
      2.3.0, wherein the number of OpenFlow table hits and misses was
      not accurate.
    * OpenFlow:
    - OFPT_PACKET_OUT messages are now supported in bundles.
    - A new "selection_method=dp_hash" type for OpenFlow select group
      bucket selection that uses the datapath computed 5-tuple hash
      without making datapath flows match the 5-tuple fields, which
      is useful for more efficient load balancing, for example.  This
      uses the Netronome extension to OpenFlow 1.5+ that allows
      control over the OpenFlow select groups selection method.  See
      "selection_method" and related options in ovs-ofctl(8) for
    - The "sample" action now supports "ingress" and "egress" options.
    - The "ct" action now supports the TFTP ALG where support is available.
    - New actions "clone" and "ct_clear".
    * ovs-ofctl:
    - 'bundle' command now supports packet-out messages.
    - New syntax for 'ovs-ofctl packet-out' command, which uses the
      same string parser as the 'bundle' command.  The old 'packet-out'
      syntax is deprecated and will be removed in a later OVS
    - New unixctl "ofctl/packet-out" command, which can be used to
      instruct a flow monitor to issue OpenFlow packet-out messages.
    * ovsdb-server:
    - Remote connections can now be made read-only (see ovsdb-server(1)).
    * DPDK:
    - Support for DPDK v16.11.
    - Support for rx checksum offload. Refer DPDK HOWTO for details.
    - Port Hotplug is now supported.
    - DPDK physical ports can now have arbitrary names. The PCI address of
      the device must be set using the 'dpdk-devargs' option. Compatibility
      with the old dpdk<portid> naming scheme is broken, and as such a
      device will not be available for use until a valid dpdk-devargs is
    - Virtual DPDK Poll Mode Driver (vdev PMD) support.
    * For the complete list of changes, please see:
  - Add patch to fix DPDK configuration migration for < 2.6 installations
    * 0001-utilities-Add-script-to-support-DPDK-option-migratio.patch
  - Rework spec file
    * Enable DPDK by default and drop openvswitch-dpdk* packages. DPDK is only
      enabled on supported architectures though.
    - Remove openvswitch-dpdk.changes
    - Remove openvswitch-dpdk.spec
    - Remove
    * Merge openvswitch and openvswitch-switch into a single package since there
      was no compelling reason to keep the switch functionality in a separate
    * Split OVN package to ovn-common, ovn-central, ovn-docker, ovn-host and
      ovn-controller similar to the Debian and RedHat packages.
* Fri Nov 25 2016
  - Relax the DPDK dependency a bit so we can support stable and
    possibly new minor releases as well.
* Mon Nov 21 2016
  - Do not restart the openvswitch service after a package update.
    Restarting the systemd service may break connectivity so let the
    user decide when it is the best time for such an action. (bsc#1002734)
* Thu Nov 03 2016
  - Version bump to 2.6.1. Some of the changes are:
    * ovn: Do not reply to ARP or ND NS for a VM's own IP address.
    * ovs-ofctl: Tolerate differences in IPv6 formatting.
    * netdev-linux: double tagged packets should use 0x88a8
    * expr: Fix abort when simplifying "x != 0/0".
    * dpif-netdev: Fix crash in dpif_netdev_execute().
    * ovn-controller: Container can have connection to a hosting VM.
    * stream-ssl: Fix memory leak on error path.
    * Other bug fixes.
* Mon Oct 03 2016
  - Version bump to 2.6.0. Some of the changes are:
    * First supported release of OVN.  See ovn-architecture(7) for more
    * ovsdb-server:
    - New "monitor_cond" "monitor_cond_update" and "update2" extensions to
      RFC 7047.
    * OpenFlow:
    - OpenFlow 1.3+ bundles now expire after 10 seconds since the
      last time the bundle was either opened, modified, or closed.
    - OpenFlow 1.3 Extension 230, adding OpenFlow Bundles support, is
      now implemented.
    - 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.
    - Internal OpenFlow rule representation for load and set-field
      actions is now much more memory efficient.  For a complex flow
      table this can reduce rule memory consumption by 40%.
    - Bundles are now much more memory efficient than in OVS 2.5.
      Together with memory efficiency improvements in OpenFlow rule
      representation, the peak OVS resident memory use during a
      bundle commit for large complex set of flow mods can be only
      25% of that in OVS 2.5 (4x lower).
    - 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.

  - Add new DPDK_OPTIONS environment variable to hold the dpdk
    vswitchd options so that the systemd unit files can be used to
    launch an ovs-vswitcd DPDK capable instance instead of doing
    it manually. (bsc#987265)

    builds on aarch64 now
* Sun Aug 07 2016
  - remove aarch from openvswitch-dpdk until we have a dpdk
    that builds for aarch64
* Tue Jul 12 2016
  - Add missing licenses (bsc#988513)
  - Misc spec file cleanups highlighted by the spec-cleaner tool.

  - Add missing 'Conflicts' statements to all the subpackages as
    required by the Factory review tools.
* Wed Jun 29 2016
  - Remove the ?_with_dpdk macro usage since this is not being set
    without explicitly passing --with/--without during an OBS build.
    This reverts back to using the %{with dpdk} style which is set
    automatically based on %bcond_with* macros (bsc#989335).
* Tue Jun 28 2016
  - Fix subpackage dependencies to not require the non-existent python
    DPDK subpackages (bsc#986835). We do not provide DPDK versions of
    the python bindings so nothing should depend on these subpackages.
* Wed Jun 22 2016
  - Update rpm groups, acronym forms.
* Tue Jun 21 2016
  - Multiple fixes for the openvswitch-dpdk package (bsc#985878)
    * Rename main package name to openvswitch-dpdk
    * Do not build the python and kmp packages since they do not
      depend on the DPDK capabilities
    * Remove the open_virtual_switch capability. The
      openvswitch-common will be used by reverse dependencies to
      require either of the OvS packages.
    * Provide virtual capabilities for all DPDK subpackages.
    * Fix the dependencies in the python package to require either
      of the OvS packages.
    * Suggest the kmp package only if it's actually provided.
    * Small cleanups.
* Fri May 27 2016
  - Add %check directive to run the openvswitch testsuite on demand.
    The openvswitch contains hundreds of tests covering simple and
    complex openvswitch configuration so it's beneficial to run them
    during package builds. However, running the testsuite is not enabled
    by default. Also add the following upstream patch:
    * 0001-Remove-broken-pipe-warning-logs-from-ovsdb-server.lo.patch
* Thu May 26 2016
  - Build a DPDK-enabled Open vSwitch (fate#319170)
    * Apply the following changes to the openvswitch.spec file
    - Add support for building with DPDK capabilities
    - Add conflicts between the two packages.
    - Add new 'open_virtual_switch-*' capabilities for openvswitch,
      openvswitch-switch, openvswitch-test packages which can be used
      by reverse dependencies to select between the two openvswitch
    * Add to generate the openvswitch_dpdk.spec file
      based on the openvswitch.spec one.
    * Add upstream openvswitch-2.5.0-detect-dpdk-installation.patch
      patch to detect and link against a DPDK installation.
* Mon May 23 2016
  - Keep %prep small for speedier `quilt setup`. Kill __DATE__ from
    source. Drop all .la files that are in %_libdir.
* Fri May 20 2016
  - Add missing %dir directive for /var/log/openvswitch
* Thu May 19 2016
  - remove aarch64 conditional, no longer needed
* Thu May 05 2016
  - Multiple spec file and package fixes.
    * Drop obsolete log-check-module-loop.patch patch.
    * Drop conditional code for older openSUSE releases. This also removes
      all of the sysvinit files which were pulled in when the package was
      originally developed.
    * Drop support for building the GUI. The GUI code has been removed in
      7868fbc6c97c2 ("ovsdbmonitor: Remove.") upstream commit and it does
      not exist since v2.2.0 so drop the code in the spec file.
    * Use the upstream systemd service files for the OVN components instead
      of maintaining our own downstream.
    * Drop the unofficial ipsec support. It hasn't been enabled in years.
    * Drop support for building the upstream kernel module since it's being
      shipped with the kernel package in latest releases. Restore the
      %bcond_with kmp to make it easier to build the external kernel module
      if needed.
    * Fix some suse-missing-rclink rpmlint warnings for the ovn subpackage
    * Base our service unit to the upstream one.
    * Stop silently enabling the GRE protocol in iptables by default.
    * Install the upstream sysconfig file to pass more information to the
      openvswitch service unit.
    * Use make install instead of %makeinstall
    * Drop brcompat leftovers.
    * spec-cleaner fixes
* Fri Apr 01 2016
  - address dimstars concerns
* Tue Mar 22 2016
  - Prevent systemd from autogenerating a service file for
    openvswitch-switch which conflicts with the opevswitch
    one. (bsc#966762)
* Fri Mar 18 2016
  - Add missing %defattr to ovn files section.
* Tue Mar 08 2016
  - Add additional install requirements for python-openvswitch-test
* Fri Mar 04 2016
  - Add support for building both 2.4.0 and 2.5.0 from the same spec
    file. Needed to fix SLE11 builds as OVS-2.5.0 no longer supports
    python < 2.7. SLE11 SP3 and SP4 use python 2.6.
  - Added: openvswitch-2.4.0.tar.gz
* Thu Mar 03 2016
  - New upstream version 2.5.0 (LTS)
    - 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.
      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 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

  - Spec file work and cleanup.
  - Includes fixes (or obsoletes) the following issues:
    * bsc#948840, bsc#941466, bsc#936780, bnc#935750, bnc#867964
* Tue Mar 01 2016
  - Tighten up openvswitch service ordering.
    bsc#968205 (openSUSE), bsc#951314 (SLE).
* Wed Feb 24 2016
  - Don't install INSTALL.* files.
* Wed Feb 24 2016
  - Removed: openvswitch-switch.template
* Wed Feb 24 2016
  - New upstream version 2.4.0
    - 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/ 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/ 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
    - 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"
    * 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 based continuous integration builds has been
      added. Build failures are reported to See
      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
    - 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
    - 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.
  - Fixed: log-check-module-loop.patch to work with new version.
  - Removed: openvswitch-2.3.1.tar.gz
  - Added: openvswitch-2.4.0.tar.gz
  - Spec file work and cleanup.
* Sun Jan 10 2016
  - Add calls to /sbin/ldconfig in %post and %postun
  - Fix typo in Url
* Sun Dec 28 2014
  - new upstream version 2.3.1
    - Compatibility with autoconf 2.63 (previously >=2.64)
    - 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.
    - Keep active bond slave selection across OVS restart.
    * v2.3.0 - 14 Aug 2014
    - OpenFlow 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3 are now enabled by default in
    - 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
      new userspace.
    * v2.2.0 - Internal Release
    - Internal ports are no longer brought up by default, because it
      should be an administrator task to bring up devices as they are
      configured properly.
    - ovs-vsctl now reports when ovs-vswitchd fails to create a new port or
    - The "ovsdbmonitor" graphical tool has been removed, because it was
      poorly maintained and not widely used.
    - New "check-ryu" Makefile target for running Ryu tests for OpenFlow
      controllers against Open vSwitch.  See INSTALL for details.
    - Added IPFIX support for SCTP flows and templates for ICMPv4/v6 flows.
    - Upon the receipt of a SIGHUP signal, ovs-vswitchd no longer reopens its
      log file (it will terminate instead). Please use 'ovs-appctl vlog/reopen'
    - Support for Linux kernels up to 3.14. From Kernel 3.12 onwards OVS uses
      tunnel API for GRE and VXLAN.
    - Added experimental DPDK support.
    - Added support for custom vlog patterns in Python
  - removed datapath-Add-support-for-Linux-3.12.patch no more required
  - removed sle11-device-ops-backport.diff , not used before
* Tue Oct 21 2014
  - fix rcX link
