Detailed Description


This is the most current release of the ixgbevf driver for Linux*, which
supports kernel versions 2.6.18 up through 4.20. It also has been tested on
the following distributions:

- RHEL* 6.10
- RHEL 7.6
- SLES* 12SP4
- SLES 15
- Ubuntu* 18.04

Changes in this release:
- Added support for 4.20 kernel version
- Added support for SLES 12SP4
- Added support for RHEL 7.6

Note:  While we attempt to keep the driver version number in sync
with its counterpart in the Linux kernel that has similar functionality, this
is far from authoritative. If you are using a newer kernel or
distro it is likely that its ixgbevf driver is at least as up to date as the
out of tree (OOT) driver found here.
