      * ACL match conditions can now match on Port_Groups as well as address
        sets that are automatically generated by Port_Groups.  ACLs can be
        applied directly to Port_Groups as well.
+     * ovn-nbctl can now run as a daemon (long-lived, background process)
+       running commands in response to JSON-RPC requests received over a UNIX
+       socket. Requests to run commands can be sent using ovs-appctl tool, same
+       as for any other OVS/OVN daemon. See ovn-nbctl(8) for details.
