+    - Bridge compatibility support has been removed.  Any uses that
+      rely on ovs-brcompatd will have to stick with Open vSwitch 1.9.x
+      or adapt to native Open vSwitch support (e.g. use ovs-vsctl instead
+      of brctl).
+    - The maximum size of the MAC learning table is now configurable.
+    - With the Linux datapath, packets for new flows are now queued
+      separately on a per-port basis, so it should no longer be
+      possible for a large number of new flows arriving on one port to
+      prevent new flows from being processed on other ports.
+    - Many "ovs-vsctl" database commands now accept an --if-exists option.
+      Please refer to the ovs-vsctl manpage for details.
+    - OpenFlow:
+      - Experimental support for newer versions of OpenFlow.  See
+        the "What versions of OpenFlow does Open vSwitch support?"
+        question in the FAQ for more details.
+      - The OpenFlow "dp_desc" may now be configured by setting the
+        value of other-config:dp-desc in the Bridge table.
+      - It is possible to request the OpenFlow port number with the
+    - Tunneling:
+      - New support for the VXLAN tunnel protocol (see the IETF draft here:
+        http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-mahalingam-dutt-dcops-vxlan-02).
+      - Tunneling requires the version of the kernel module paired with
+        Open vSwitch 1.9.0 or later.
+      - Inheritance of the Don't Fragment bit in IP tunnels (df_inherit)
+        is no longer supported.
+      - Path MTU discovery is no longer supported.
+       "ofport_request" column in the Interface table.
+    - ovs-dpctl:
+      - The "dump-flows" and "del-flows" no longer require an argument
+        if only one datapath exists.
+    - ovs-appctl:
+      - New "vlog/disable-rate-limit" and "vlog/enable-rate-limit"
+        commands available allow control over logging rate limits.
+      - New "dpif/dump-dps", "dpif/show", and "dpif/dump-flows" command
+        that mimic the equivalent ovs-dpctl commands.
+    - The ofproto library is now responsible for assigning OpenFlow port
+      numbers.  An ofproto implementation should assign them when
+      port_construct() is called.
+    - All dpif-based bridges of a particular type share a common
+      datapath called "ovs-<type>", e.g. "ovs-system".  The ovs-dpctl
+      commands will now return information on that shared datapath.  To
+      get the equivalent bridge-specific information, use the new
+      "ovs-appctl dpif/*" commands.
+    - Backward-incompatible changes:
+      - Earlier Open vSwitch versions treated ANY as a wildcard in flow
+        syntax.  OpenFlow 1.1 adds a port named ANY, which introduces a
+        conflict.  ANY was rarely used in flow syntax, so we chose to
+        retire that meaning of ANY in favor of the OpenFlow 1.1 meaning.
+    - Patch ports no longer require kernel support, so they now work
+      with FreeBSD and the kernel module built into Linux 3.3 and later.
