Bug Fixes

  • The independent ovn plugin package(pythonN-networking-ovn) is no longer required. The package is no longer available since Ussuri, and all codes are now included in the base neutron package.

  • The neutron-ovn-metadata-agent package is now installed in Ubuntu and Debian.

  • Bug #1987460: Previously the neutron::agents::ml2::mlnx class causes duplicate resources when used with the neutron::agents::dhcp class or the neutron::agents::l3 class. Now it is possible to workaround the error by implementing the following mitigation.

    • Include the neutron::agents::ml2::mlnx class AFTER the neutron::agents::dhcp class or the neutron::agents::l3

    • Set the interface_driver parameter and the dhcp_broadcast_reply parameter consistently.


New Features

  • The new sdn_token parameter to authenticate sdn has been added to the neutron::plugins::ml2::mellanox::mlnx_sdn_assist class.

  • The new neutron::healthcheck class has been added. This class manages parameters of healthcheck middlware in oslo.middleware.

  • The new neutron::server::notifications::nova::live_migration_events parameter has been added. This parameter controls the [nova] live_migation_events parameter in neutron.conf.

  • Support for the logging serivce plugin parameters has been added to the following classes.

    • neutron::agent::l3

    • neutron::agent::ml2::ovs

    • neutron::plugins::ml2::ovn

  • It is now possible to set the report interval for the networking-baremetal ml2 agent by using new parameter report_interval in the neutron::agents::ml2::networking_baremetal class.

  • Now the neutron::agents::ml2::ovs class and the neutron::agents::ml2::sriov class supports the resource_provider_default_hypervisor parameter to set the corresponding parameter in ovs-agent and sriov-agent.

Deprecation Notes

  • Support for the midonet plugin has been deprecated and has no effect now. It will be removed completely in a future release.
