15 July, 2022 by email@example.com | openbsd
We have released OpenBGPD 7.5, which will be arriving in the OpenBGPD directory of your local OpenBSD mirror soon. This release includes the following changes to the previous release: * Implement RFC 9234 - Route Leak Prevention and Detection Using Roles in UPDATE and OPEN Messages. * Full support for RFC 7911 - Advertisement of Multiple Paths in BGP. * Include bgplgd(8) - a fastcgi server providing a REST API of bgpctl Built by default but can be excluded with --disable-bgplgd. * Add FIB and TCP MD5 support for FreeBSD. * Disable Linux FIB support by default, add an --enable-netlink configure option to enable it for testing and development. * Improve bgpd FIB code, make it more portable and properly handle IPv6 scoped addresses. 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.
