P4 is rapidly becoming the standard way to describe how packets are forwarded by networking devices. To better meet the needs of P4’s growing and vibrant open-source developer community the P4 Language Consortium, creator of the P4 programming language, will soon merge with the Open Networking Foundation and P4 will become an ONF project. Leveraging the strategic relationship between the ONF and the Linux Foundation, P4 Project will also become part of the Linux Foundation’s portfolio of projects for the purposes of strategic alignment across the open source ecosystem.
