This information lists the new features included in each OPX release.

Release 3.1.0

  • Added support for S5232F-ON, S5248F-ON, and S5296F-ON switches
  • Inter-VRF routing
  • Static L2 VxLAN
  • S5148-ON ingress ACL improvement
  • OPX config tools phase 1
  • Z9264F-ON and S5200 fanout utilities

Release 3.0.0

  • Distribution upgrade to Debian Stretch (Debian 9)
  • Added support for S4112F-ON, S4112T-ON, and Z9264F-ON switches
  • Data VRF (IP services such as DHCP client and relay, DNS, ping, traceroute; not supported on the S5148-ON in this release)
  • CoPP ACLs (not supported on the S5148-ON in this release)
  • Ansible enhancements
  • NTPv4 now included in installer
  • sFlow (new version built on CPS API - see https://sflow.net/downloads.php to download the hsflowd package for OpenSwitch)
  • Zero-touch deployment
  • IP unnumbered support
  • TACACS+ and RADIUS (as supported on Linux; OpenSwitch will publish guidance)
  • SNMPv3 support
  • Introduced --set option to the cps_config_lag command which allows you to overwrite an existing list (for example, cps_config_lag --set --lname bnd1 --port e101-001, e101-004, e101-005)
  • Removed FRR from the installer (go to https://github.com/FRRouting/frr/releases to download the FRR package for installation)

Release 2.3.1

  • Introduced reload/reboot command to reset the NPU when resetting the switch for all platforms except Dell EMC Networking S5148F-ON

Release 2.3.0

  • Added support for Dell EMC Networking S5148F-ON, S4248FB-ON, and S4248FBL-ON switches
  • Persistent ACL configuration
  • Support for interfaces table MIB via PySNMP
  • Ability to upgrade OPX packages via apt-get upgrade
  • Fixed issues found by the OPX community
  • Dell EMC Networking S6000-ON has reached EOL

Release 2.2.0

  • Added support for Dell EMC Networking Z9100-ON, S4148F-ON, S4148FE-ON, S4148T-ON, S4128F-ON, and S4128T-ON switches
  • Introduced support for 25G, 50G, and 100G interfaces and fanout modes
  • Forward error correction (FEC) support
  • Switch port profiles or the S4148F-ON, S4148FE-ON, and S4148T-ON — determines the set of front panel ports to be enabled and the supported breakout modes on those enabled ports. Change the port profile on a switch to customize uplink and the availability of front panel data ports.
  • Internet group management protocol (IGMP) snooping uses information in IGMP packets to generate a forwarding table that associates ports with multicast groups. Incoming multicast frames are then forwarded only to interested receivers. To optimize bandwidth use, multicast packets are addressed with multicast MAC addresses that represent a group of devices instead of one unique device.
  • IPv6 enhancements
    • Enable error message generation for IPv6 packets with unreachable destinations
    • Enable IPv6 duplicate address discovery (DAD) to determine if an autoconfigured IPv6 link-local address is unique before assigning it to an interface
  • Management virtual routing and forwarding (VRF) — to segregate management protocol instances from the data plane, assign a front-panel port to the management VRF and configure the port to act as a host interface.
  • Explicit congestion notification (ECN) with weighted random early detection (WRED) — use WRED ECN to log network congestion rather than dropping packets to prevent buffering resources from being consumed. Marking per-class profiles and ECN interface counters are also supported.
  • Encapsulated remote port monitoring (ERPM) — copies traffic from source ports/port-channels or source VLANs and fowardws traffic using routable GRE-encapsulated packets to the destination IP address specified in the session.
  • ACLs now support TCP and UDP port ranges

Release 2.1.0

  • Dell EMC Networking support: S3048-ON, S4048-ON/S4048T-ON, S6000-ON/S6010-ON

    • Layer 2 bridging — LLDP, MAC, STP, VLAN
    • Layer 3 routing — ECMP, IPv4, IPv6, unicast
    • ACLs — NPU
    • QoS — 802.1p, DSCP, WRED, CoPP
    • Monitoring — sFlow, port, VLAN stats
