We've had a lot of questions about this on the mailing lists recently, and
it would be nice to have an authoritative answer to cut and paste.

Q: What versions of OpenFlow does Open vSwitch support?
-A: Open vSwitch supports OpenFlow 1.0. It also includes a number of
- extensions that bring many of the features from later versions of
- OpenFlow. Work is underway to provide support for later versions and
- can be tracked here:
+A: Open vSwitch 1.9 and earlier support only OpenFlow 1.0. Open
+ vSwitch also includes a number of extensions that bring many of the
+ features from later versions of OpenFlow.
+ Open vSwitch versions 1.10 and later will have experimental support
+ for OpenFlow 1.2 and 1.3. On these version of Open vSwitch, use the
+ ovs-vsctl set bridge br0 protocols=openflow10,openflow12,openflow13
+ to enable OpenFlow 1.0, 1.2, and 1.3 on bridge br0.
+ Work remains to be done. The work to be done is tracked in the
+ file OPENFLOW-1.1+ in the Open vSwitch source tree (also via
+ http://openvswitch.org/development/openflow-1-x-plan/). When
+ support for a given OpenFlow version is solidly implemented, Open
+ vSwitch will enable that version by default.
Q: I'm getting "error type 45250 code 0". What's that?
