OpenBGPD 6.5p0 released

We have released OpenBGPD 6.5p0, which will be arriving in the
OpenBGPD directory of your local OpenBSD mirror soon.

OpenBGPD is a free, functional, and secure implementation of the
Border Gateway Protocol (BGP-4). It is a fairly complete BGP
implementation and praised for ease of use, as well as its
reliability. This is the first release of OpenBGPD-portable in
quite some time. Since the last portable release a significant
amount of features and performance improvements have been added,
if you haven't used openbgpd-portable in a while, you'll be positively
amazed what has changed!

Caveats: there currently there is no support to update FIB / kernel
routing tables in the portable version of OpenBGPD.  This means
OpenBGPD-portable is suitable for IXP route servers, route collectors
and route reflectors but not (yet) for use as a traditional router.
Some OpenBSD specific features have been turned off as well.

OpenBGPD-portable is known to compile and run on FreeBSD 12.x, and
the Linux distributions Debian 9, and Ubuntu 14.04. It is our hope
that packagers take interest and help adapt OpenBGPD-portable to
more distributions.

We welcome feedback and improvements from the broader community.
Thanks to all of the contributors who helped make this release
