The Open vSwitch team is pleased to announce the availability of Open vSwitch 1.1.1:


The release only contains bug fixes for the 1.1.0 release.  Thank you to those who reported bugs.

We have seen an interest from vendors in bringing Open vSwitch's features to hardware switches.  To that end, our current "master" branch will be the basis of a 1.2.x series of releases. The focus of which is a new datapath abstraction layer that simplifies porting Open vSwitch to switching ASICs.  For those of you interested in understanding how this works, please look at the PORTING document:


Thanks and enjoy!

Open vSwitch is a production quality, multilayer open source virtual switch.  It is designed to enable massive network automation through programmatic extension, while still supporting standard management interfaces.  Open vSwitch can operate both as a soft switch running within the hypervisor, and as the control stack for switching silicon. It has been ported to multiple virtualization platforms and switching chipsets.
