OpenDaylight Features


Non-Code Aspects (user docs, examples, tutorials, articles)

Architectural Issues

Security Considerations

No known issues.

Quality Assurance (test coverage, etc)

Almost every module in the OVSDB project has UT, IT and system test coverage.

End-of-life (API/Features EOLed in Release)

All the ADSAL related components are deprecated: plugin and northbound

Bugzilla (summary of bug situation)

No major bugs exist. Most remaining bugs for supported code are for new features or minor fixes.

Standards (summary of standard compliance)

Schedule (initial schedule and changes over the release cycle)

Code hardening was a primary driver for this release but the introduction of the MDSAL to OVSDB impacted that deliverable as resources were diverted to the new MDSAL southbound. Also the instability of a reliable OpenStack and ODL integration test framework impacted testing coverage.
