     - 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.

+    - 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.
+    - 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.
+    - 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.
+    - New support for a nonstandard form of GRE that supports a 64-bit key.
+    - The following features are now deprecated.  They will be removed no
+      earlier than February 2013.  Please email dev at openvswitch.org with
+      concerns.
+        - Stable bond mode.
+        - The autopath action.
+        - Interface type "null".
+        - Numeric values for reserved ports (see "ovs-ofctl" note above).
