We have released OpenBGPD 7.7, which will be arriving in the
OpenBGPD directory of your local OpenBSD mirror soon.
This release includes the following changes to the previous release:

   * Adjust pathid_assign() to be much faster for the common case.

   * Improve performance for generating updates for sessions using
     add-path send all.

   * Implement proper routing table sync in the kroute-linux.c code.

   * Enable linux netlink integration by default.

   * Add a --disable-fib-support config option to disable FIB sync
     on OpenBSD, FreeBSD and Linux systems.

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 the announcement says, the new version should arrive in your OpenBSD mirror soon. But you can head over to right now and take a look.
