The Indigo team is pleased to announce release 2012.03.19.
For those not familiar with Indigo, its an open source project that supports OpenFlow on a range of physical switches (including Pronto and Netgear). Indigo firmware is actively used in many campus deployments (at Stanford and several other schools), in at least one OpenFlow startup, a 20-switch conference network deployment and a 32-switch data center deployment.
If you want to get your hands dirty with OpenFlow, Indigo on a platform like Pronto is a great way to do it. And of course, its well tested with the Floodlight controller.
