Release Notes

The native SONiC command "show environment" now uses the ONLP output instead of the SONiC versions. This showcases the value of the ONLP interfaces while using the same, familiar SONiC commands.

The native SONiC command "show" now allows you to run "show inventory", which uses the ONLP interfaces to provide ONLP inventory. This command provides more detailed and rich platform information obtained through ONLP interfaces. This includes the details of the SFPs plugged into the system
