Dear mailing list,

we are jubilant to announce the latest release of Routinator, version
0.6.0 ’Pink Sombrero.’

This release adds support for the RPKI Repository Delta Protocol
(RRDP), an alternative method of fetching RPKI data that uses
HTTPS instead of rsync. RRDP will speed up synchronisation for
frequently updated repositories, for instance when Routinator is
running in server mode. For the RRDP implementation, most of the
internal logic of Routinator has been rewired. We used this opportunity
for extensive refactoring and cleanup of the code base.

One user visible consequence is that the listeners for RTR and HTTP are
now started immediately instead of waiting until after the first
validation run. They still will report an error message until then, but
at least you won’t have to wonder whether something went wrong anymore.

There have been a few more changes. You can read all about them in the
release notes at

Happy Routinating!

On behalf of the NLnet Labs RPKI Team,
