know about the development plan for OpenFlow 1.3 of OVS.

OVS, does this mean the OpenFlow 1.3(or OpenFlow 1.1+) related work will
only be  developped

Yes. We only add features on the master branch.  Open flow new version
support is not an exception.

It will not be targeted for earlier branches.

There isn't.  If you want it to happen faster, you can send patches.
