Dear mailing list,

happy new year!

Having recovered from the festivities, we can announce our first
Routinator release of 2019, version 0.2.1 ‘Rated R.’

Routinator is an RPKI relying party software that collects and
validates statements made in the Resource Public Key Infrastructure
(RPKI) about allowed route origins and provides them to routers and
concerned Internet citizens.

This release primarily fixes two bugs introduced with the configuration
file support in 0.2.0. For one, Routinator failed to build on 32-bit
systems. Secondly, the code and documentation disagreed on the name of
the default configuration file. After checking back with users, settled
on `$HOME/.routinator.conf`.

However, since that didn’t seem enough to warrant a release in itself,
we decided to try and make Routinator work on Windows as a bonus.
Because of Rust’s built-in support for Windows, this turned out easier
than expected. You still need to get `rsync`, though, in particular the
one coming with Cygwin.

You can read about all the changes in this release in the complete
Changelog [0].

Happy Routinating,
