Subject: OpenBGPD 8.0 released

We have released OpenBGPD 8.0, which will be arriving in the
OpenBGPD directory of your local OpenBSD mirror soon.

This release includes the following changes to the previous release:

    * Include OpenBSD 7.3 errata 001:
      A new ASPA object appeared in the RPKI ecosystem and exposed bugs in
      bgpd(8) and rpki-client(8). 

    * Introduce a semaphore to protect intermittent RTR session data 
      from being published to the RDE.

    * Add first version of flowspec support. Right now only announcement
      of flowspec rules is possible.

    * Improve and extend the bgpctl parser to handle commands like
      `bgpctl show rib detail`. Also add various flowspec
      specific commands.

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

As we can see, a fresh release with new features and ever important improvement to routing security.
