   - Added Load_Balancer_Group support, which simplifies large scale
     configurations of load balancers.
+  - Introduced infrastructure for VIF plug providers.  When OVN is linked with
+    an appropriate VIF plug provider, such as OVN VIF [0], CMS can request OVN
+    to plug lports.  This is particularly useful in topologies where the
+    ovn-controller process is running on SmartNIC control plane CPUs.  Please
+    refer to Documentation/topics/vif-plug-providers/vif-plug-providers.rst for
+    more information.
