+---------------------
+   - This is the first release after OVN is split from Open vSwitch
+     project.

+v2.12.0 - 03 Sep 2019
 ---------------------
    - DPDK:
      * New option 'other_config:dpdk-socket-limit' to limit amount of
        hugepage memory that can be used by DPDK.
+     * Add support for vHost Post-copy Live Migration (experimental).
+     * OVS validated with DPDK 18.11.2 which is the new minimal supported
+       version.
+     * DPDK 18.11.1 and lower is no longer supported.
+     * New option 'tx-retries-max' to set the maximum amount of vhost tx
+       retries that can be made.
    - OpenFlow:
+     * All features required by OpenFlow 1.5 are now implemented, so
+       ovs-vswitchd now enables OpenFlow 1.5 by default (in addition to
+       OpenFlow 1.0 to 1.4).
      * Removed support for OpenFlow 1.6 (draft), which ONF abandoned.
      * New action "check_pkt_larger".
+     * Support for OpenFlow 1.5 "meter" action.
    - Userspace datapath:
      * ICMPv6 ND enhancements: support for match and set ND options type
        and reserved fields.

      * New "ovs-appctl dpctl/ipf-get-status" command for userspace datapath

      * New action "check_pkt_len".
+     * Port configuration with "other-config:priority-tags" now has a mode
+       that retains the 802.1Q header even if VLAN and priority are both zero.
+     * 'ovs-appctl exit' now implies cleanup of non-internal ports in userspace
+       datapath regardless of '--cleanup' option. Use '--cleanup' to remove
+       internal ports too.
+     * Removed experimental tag for SMC cache.
+     * Datapath classifer code refactored to enable function pointers to select
+       the lookup implementation at runtime. This enables specialization of
+       specific subtables based on the miniflow attributes, enhancing the
+       performance of the subtable search.
+     * Add Linux AF_XDP support through a new experimental netdev type "afxdp".
    - OVSDB:
      * OVSDB clients can now resynchronize with clustered servers much more
        quickly after a brief disconnection, saving bandwidth and CPU time.
