Claudio Jeker (claudio@) has just announced the release of OpenBGPD 7.3. He writes:

We have released OpenBGPD 7.3, which will be arriving in the
OpenBGPD directory of your local OpenBSD mirror soon.

This release includes the following changes to the previous release:

    * Macro expansion in the config file is improved. It is now possible
      to expand 'set large-community $myAS:$location:$transit'.

    * Add initial FIB support for Linux. Routes can be added and removed.
      Nexthop tracking and dynamic interface detection are not yet implemented. 

    * Major refactoring in the RIB codebase to add multipath support in
      an upcoming release.

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
