The release announcement leads in,
We have released OpenBGPD 7.6, 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 7.1 errata 008: bgpd(8) could fail to invalidate nexthops and incorrectly leave them in the FIB or Adj-RIB-Out. * Speedup bgpctl show rib 10/8 or-longer and show rib 10/8 or-shorter * Switch various static hash tables to RB trees improving performance on large systems * Export per neighbor pending update and withdraw statistics * Fix race between a neighbor session reset and its update message backlog * Improve handling of nexthop reachability state changes * Further improve portability of the FIB handling code
and goes on to note that
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.
It's a very welcome update, and a sure sign that a new OpenBSD release is close to getting ready.
