Dear RPKI Mailing List,

Routinator version 0.2.0 ‘Instant Gezellig’ has been released!

This release both cleans up the initial release and prepares for new
features to come. Most importantly, we decided to change command line
handling and switched to the ever popular model of requesting actions
via sub-commands. You can now request a list of the validated ROA
payload (aka VRP) via the `vrps` command and start the RTR server via

into a config file. You can either explicitly pick a file via the
`-c` option or keep `.routinator.conf` in your home directory. The
config file can contain all global options and the additional options
for the RTR server. It is a TOML file. A complete example is available
in the source repository[0].

command to be even closer to those used by the RIPE NCC Validator by

Finally, deployment is now ever so much easier thanks to the Dockerfile
contributed by David Monosov. If you are using Docker, you can now get
Routinator from the Docker Hub simply by::

   docker pull nlnetlabs/routinator

If you have Routinator installed from cargo.io, you can upgrade to the
latest release via::

   cargo install --force routinator

You can read about all the changes in this release in the complete
Changelog in the source repository[1]. More information about
Routinator itself can be found in the NLnetLabs/routinator Github
repository[2] and in routinators man page.
