claudio@), the OpenBSD project today announced the release of the OpenBSD BGP (Border Gateway Protocol) daemon OpenBGPD, version 8.2.
The announcement reads,
From: Claudio Jeker <claudio () openbsd ! org> Date: Mon, 02 Oct 2023 10:22:39 +0000 To: openbsd-announce Subject: OpenBGPD 8.2 released We have released OpenBGPD 8.2, which will be arriving in the OpenBGPD directory of your local OpenBSD mirror soon.
This release includes the following changes to the previous release: * Update ASPA support to follow draft-ietf-sidrops-aspa-verification-16 and draft-ietf-sidrops-aspa-profile-16 by making the ASPA lookup tables AFI-agnostic. * Fix a fatal error in the Linux netlink parser which was triggered because of a mismatched netlink message size. * Rework UPDATE message generation to use the new ibuf API instead of the hand-rolled solution before. * Improve error message in bgpctl for features not supported by the portable version of OpenBGPD. * Adjusted example GRACEFUL_SHUTDOWN filter rule in the example config to only match on ebgp sessions. 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.
This is both a bunch of welcome improvements and a reminder that we are moving in the direction of a new OpenBSD release in the near future.
Happy routing, everyone!
