OpenBGPD 7.2 released
23 September, 2021 by firstname.lastname@example.org | openbsd
We have released OpenBGPD 7.2, which will be arriving in the OpenBGPD directory of your local OpenBSD mirror soon. This release includes the following changes to the previous release: * Support for RFC 9072 - Extended Optional Parameters Lenght for BGP OPEN Message * Support for RFC 8050 - MRT Format with BGP Additional Path Extensions * Implement receive side of RFC 7911 - Advertisement of Multiple Paths in BGP. OpenBGPD is currently not able to send multiple paths out. * Improve checks of VRPs loaded via RTR or from the roa-set table. * Allow to optionally specify an expiry time for roa-set entries to mitigate BGP route decision making based on outdated RPKI data. OpenBGPD's companion rpki-client(8) produces roa-sets with the new 'expires' property OpenBGPD-portable is known to compile and run on FreeBSD, and the Linux distributions Alpine, Debian, Fedora, RHEL/CentOS and Ubuntu. 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.
