OpenBGPD 6.5p0 released
30 April, 2019 by email@example.com | openbsd
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 possible.
