A little while back, POX’s betta branch was unceremoniously made a release branch and became the default when cloning POX. This was a reflection of the decision that you were strictly better off using betta than its predecessor (angler). This also meant it was time to create a new branch for active development — that branch is carp.

The nox-dev mailing list was one of the first places on the net to discuss OpenFlow and SDN issues. Since then, we’ve added other ways to contact us and engage the community. For example, the pox-dev mailing list, the github Issues system, and comments on noxrepo.org. We’ve just added another on a sort of trial basis: web forums.
This week, POX’s betta branch gained a simple DHCP server. I’m actually aware of at least three other POX DHCP servers(!), but this is the first one in the mainline. It’s pretty bare-bones, but it might Do The Job for you (and if it doesn’t maybe it’s at least a start). It also demonstrates a rarely seen POX feature: multiple launch functions.

The Google group archives of the mailing lists (or at least the pox-dev one) apparently died a while ago, and I haven’t taken/had time to fix them. But the lists are actually still active. I thought I should point this out in case people have been discouraged from joining the lists because they seemed to be dead. I’ll try to fix the archives at some point, and sorry for the confusion and inconvenience.
Today, POX gets its second branch: betta. It’s named after the genus of fish, perhaps the most well known member of which is the rather pretty Betta splendens. This branch is based off my fork which has been slowly accumulating changes for a while now.

Welcome to the new noxrepo.org!
We’ve been pretty quiet for a while now here at noxrepo (unless you happen to be following along with the nox-dev mailing list), but we’re gearing up to change that with a number of announcements.
