OpenBGPD 7.0 has been released, which will be arriving in the OpenBGPD directory of your local OpenBSD mirror soon.
This release includes the following changes to the previous release:
Stop processing queued UPDATES when the max-prefix limit was reached.
Improve negotiation for route refresh, graceful restart and multi-protocol capabilities
Correctly track rde evaluate all and export settings during reload.
Properly withdraw prefixes when rde evaluate all is used.
Fix MRT handling on initial startup for message dump types.
Fix and use non-blocking connect for RTR sessions.
Fully implement RFC 6286 by checking for BGP ID collisions.
Adjust the 4-byte AS number handling to RFC 6793 by changing error behaviour from prefix withdraw to attribute discard.
In bgpctl print out both the sent "Neighbor capabilities" and the "Negotiated capabilities" for a session.
Print timestamps both as a formatted and a pure time in seconds filed in various JSON objects.
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.
