Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH v2 09/10] doc: add note about blacklist/whitelist changes
Date: Thu, 11 Jun 2020 17:20:38 -0700
Message-ID: <20200612002039.17450-10-stephen@networkplumber.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200612002039.17450-1-stephen@networkplumber.org>

The blacklist/whitelist changes to API will not be a breaking
change for applications in this release but worth adding a note
to encourage migration.
