Dear mailing list,

we are rather thrilled to announce the latest release of Routinator,
version 0.5.0 ‘Why Not Try a Holiday in Sweden This Year?’

This release adds actual RPKI origin validation to Routinator itself.
An address prefix and AS number can now be checked for its RPKI status
on the command line via the new ``validate`` command or via the HTTP
server. The latter is done provided in a way compatible with the
API provided by the RIPE NCC RPKI Validator.

The release also includes some breaking changes to the Prometheus
metrics. Back when we introduced those, we chose names for the metrics
that didn’t start with a prefix allowing to identify them as being from
Routinator. This is now corrected and all metrics start with
"routinator_". While at it, we added new metrics for the rsync
commands being run by Routinator, showing both their exit status codes
and how long they took.

In addition, there has been quite a few internal plumbing changes. One
more visible change is that Routinator will now delete the data for
rsync modules that aren’t referenced anymore, keeping the local
repository clean and small.

You can read about all the changes in the complete release notes at

Happy Routinating!

On behalf of the NLnet Labs RPKI Team,
