Major Features

Beryllium release marks the fourth release (previous was Lithium) of the most of MD-SAL components and first release of MD-SAL as separate project from YANG Tools and OpenDaylight Controller.

We have fixed 22 issues ranging from small annoyances to major reworks (code migration and reorganization).

We have successfully migrated code generation components from YANG Tools project, and messaging patterns from OpenDaylight Controller project in order to lower the coupling between the YANG-defined runtime, the actual message patterns used in OpenDaylight and their clustering implementation.

Most prominent feature of this release is migration of codebase and redesign of APIs, altough we we're unable to provide production ready runtime for new introduced APIs.

Target Environment

For Execution

MD-SAL are kept completely portable and require only JVM compliant with Java 7 SE or Java 8 SE to run. The code generator for YANG maven plugin requires Maven version 3.1.1 or later and YANG Maven Plugin version 0.8.

For Development

MD-SAL is developed as a normal Java project.

Timeline Features Completed in this Release

This release intruduces preview version of Data Tree Consumer and Data Tree Producer APIs which describes / provides improved message patterns using Data Tree.
