Objet : [openstack-dev] networking-vpp 18.01 for VPP 18.01 is now available

Hello Everyone,

In conjunction with the release of VPP 18.01, we'd like to invite you all to 
try out networking-vpp 18.01 for VPP 18.01.
VPP is a fast userspace forwarder based on the DPDK toolkit, and uses vector 
packet processing algorithms to minimize the CPU time spent on each packet and 
maximize throughput.
networking-vpp is a ML2 mechanism driver that controls VPP on your control and 
compute hosts to provide fast L2 forwarding under Neutron.

This version has a few additional enhancements, along with supporting the VPP 
18.01 APIs:
- L3 HA
- VM Live Migration
- Neutron protocol names in a security group rule

Along with this, there have been the usual upkeep as Neutron versions change, 
bug fixes, code and test improvements.

The README [1] explains how you can try out VPP using devstack: the devstack 
plugin will deploy the mechanism driver and VPP itself and should give you a 
working system with a minimum of hassle.
It will use the etcd version deployed by newer versions of devstack.

We will be continuing our development between now and VPP's 18.04 release in 
There are several features we're planning to work on (you'll find a list in our 
RFE bugs at [2]), and we welcome anyone who would like to come help us.

Everyone is welcome to join our biweekly IRC meetings, every other Monday (the 
next one is due in a week), 0800 PST = 1600 GMT.
Naveen & Ian
