OpenBGPD 8.3 released

We have released OpenBGPD 8.3, which will be arriving in the
OpenBGPD directory of your local OpenBSD mirror soon.

This release includes the following changes to the previous release:

    * bgpd 8.1 and 8.2 could send a bad COMMUNITY attribute when
      non-transitive ext-communities are present. A workaround is to
      add a filter rule to clear non-transitive ext-communities:
            match to ebgp set ext-community delete ovs *

      This is used by 'announce IPv6 unicast' over an IPv4 session or

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
