Intel® Data Plane Development Kit: Release Notes
These release notes cover the primary new features, fixed bugs and known issues for Intel® Data Plane Development Kit (Intel® DPDK). For instructions on compiling and running the release, see the Intel® DPDK Getting Started Guide.
The Intel® DPDK Bare-metal features will now be provided off-roadmap to a limited set of customers on a case-by-case basis at this time. Please contact your Intel representative if you wish to be considered as an evaluation candidate for the Baremetal features.
All Intel® DPDK questions and technical problems including those regarding the Ethernet* Controllers for the Poll Mode Driver should be reported in QuAD through the Intel® Premier Support site http://premier.intel.com/premier or access your IBL account and click the Intel® Premier Support link to enter issues under the Product Name “Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK)”, which are then routed to our PAEs.
Using Intel® DPDK Upgrade Patches
For minor updates to the main Intel® DPDK releases, the software may be made available both as a new full package and as a patch file to be applied to the previously released package. In the latter case, the following commands should be used to apply the patch on top of the already-installed package for the previous release:
# cd $RTE_SDK
# patch –p1< /path/to/patch/file
Once the patch has been applied cleanly, the Intel® DPDK can be recompiled and used as before (described in the Intel® DPDK Getting Started Guide).
Note: If the patch does not apply cleanly, perhaps because of modifications made locally to the software, it is recommended to use the full release package for the minor update, instead of using the patch.
