Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH v4 09/11] doc: add note about blacklist/whitelist changes
Date: Mon, 13 Jul 2020 22:39:17 -0700
Message-ID: <20200714053919.5609-10-stephen@networkplumber.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200714053919.5609-1-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.
