Announcing Floodlight v0.90

We are pleased to announce the release of Floodlight 0.90!  The 0.90  release consists of new controller REST APIs, new applications, bug fixes, a new test framework and contribution guideline, and a completely revamped documentation wiki.

Distribution
Ubuntu 12.10.  Floodlight is now available in the Ubuntu repository and can be installed via “apt-get install floodlight”
New Applications
  • CircuitPusher, a python-based REST application, uses Floodlight’s REST API to setup a circuit between two IP hosts.  Includes new REST APIs.
  • Firewall, a java module application, provides controller-based stateless ACL support.
Infrastructure
  • Integration Test Framework & Suite. Big Switch is open sourcing a test framework called “Floodlight-Test” to allow developers to easily develop and run integration tests. From release 0.90 and on, all developer contributions are required to have accompanied unit tests, integration tests, and documentation.
  • Revamped Documentation. A new docs site with a new structure for more efficient access to user and developer oriented information. New tutorials/guides are provided to assist in every stage of the usage and development process.  Specific instructions are also given in the wiki to describe a contribution process and a jira-based feature/bug tracking system.
