     8== I. Major accomplishments ==
     9
     10Version 0.9-10 of ''sfa'' (formerly geniwrapper) is now running “live” on both PLC and VINI Central.  The sfa module is reasonably stable and only minor updates are planned.
     11
     12We worked with the GPO to define a ''GENI API'' that unifies the PlanetLab and ProtoGENI versions of the SFA API. 
     13
     14We redesigned the RSpec resource description language used with the sfa module for (1) coverage of all user-configurable aspects of PlanetLab and VINI, and (2) readability and ease-of-use.  We have implemented functions for generating and processing the new RSpec in the sfa.  Tew RSpec (v1.0) is deployed on VINI, and VINI's users are using it to create virtual topologies.  We are coordinating !PlanetLab deployment of RSpec v1.0 with !PlanetLab Europe and PlanetLab Japan. 
     15
     16We modified the ''sfatables'' policy framework to be compatible with RSpec v1.0.  The new sfatables is deployed on VINI Central, and will be deployed on !PlanetLab concurrently with RSpec v1.0.
     17
     18[http://openvswitch.org OpenVSwitch] provides a software Ethernet bridge supporting the !OpenFlow interface in the Linux kernel.  We ported the OpenVSwitch driver to PlanetLab's 2.6.27 Linux kernel, and we are currently testing it.
