Dear mailing list,

We are very excited about introducing Krill 0.5.0 'Serve No Turf'. This release
is a major step forward for the project, improving the installation, onboarding,
interoperability and usability of Krill.

The most prominent change you will notice is that Krill now offers a
multi-language user interface, allowing you to set up a Certificate Authority,
perform the parent exchanges with one or more Regional and National Internet
Registries, configure a publication server and manage Route Origin
Authorisations (ROAs).

The UI is managed as a separate open source project, named Lagosta. It uses
Vue.js as Javascript framework and Element as UI framework. The first release,
Lagosta 0.1.0 'Fritto Misto', offers everything to get started with Krill. You
can expect the UI to evolve heavily over time, including ROA suggestions,
tagging and alerts. The user interface is compiled as static HTML and JS, which
is bundled in the Krill package. We're proud that this addition resulted in just
an 8MB increase of memory usage, making Krill still completely capable of
running on minimalist hardware such as a Raspberry Pi.

But the UI is not the only major change in version 0.5.0. The documentation
received an overhaul, clearly laying out every aspect of the software. Krill can
now be installed from a new Linux machine in just seven steps, greatly
simplifying the process. You can them immediately start using it using either
the UI, CLI or API. Lastly, Krill now also offers a Prometheus monitoring end

Finally, we ironed out some interoperability issues with ARIN and APNIC,
ensuring Krill works reliably with all RIRs. We wish to thank Cynthia Revström
for the fantastic help she provided in ironing out some issues we found when
setting up Krill under ARIN.

You can find out more about the development and features in our blog post.

On behalf of the NLnet Labs RPKI team,
