+* **Added cryptodev port to port library.**
+ Cryptodev port is a shim layer in the port library that interacts with DPDK
+ Cryptodev PMDs including burst enqueuing and dequeuing crypto operations.
+* **Added symmetric cryptographic actions to the pipeline library.**
+ In the pipeline library an added symmetric crypto action parsing and action
+ handler are implemented. The action allows automatically preparing the crypto
+ operation with the rules specified such as algorithm, key, and IV, etc for
+ the cryptodev port to process.
* **Added support for GEN3 devices to Intel QAT driver .**
Added support for the third generation of Intel QuickAssist devices.
