Subject: [dpdk-stable] 19.11.8 patches review and test
Date: Fri,  9 Apr 2021 09:43:57 +0200
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Hi all,

Here is a list of patches targeted for stable release 19.11.8.

The planned date for the final release is 16th April.

Please help with testing and validation of your use cases and report
any issues/results with reply-all to this mail. For the final release
the fixes and reported validations will be added to the release notes.

This is a special interim release not following the releases of recent
mainline (that was 19.11.7). Instead this addresses issues with >=19.11.6
identified and discussed in:

The only changes this release has over the former one are about linking.
We switch back to how it was <=19.11.6 since it regressed some use-cases.
The most known one at the moment is building OVS 2.13 vs a DPDK that was
built with meson. It seems that make-based DPDK builds are unaffected.
Due to that this verification phase should not so much be about the usual
performance, functionality, ... (I'm happy if you run those, but they are
not strictly required). Instead the focus should mostly about buildability
via the various possible combinations that exist.

A release candidate tarball can be found at:

These patches are located at branch 19.11 of dpdk-stable repo:
