Dear mailing list,

we are happy to announce the latest release of Routinator, version
0.7.0 ’Your Time Starts … Now.’

The most important changes in this release are internal. We’ve updated
the processing and server logic to the advances made in the Rust
ecosystem for easier parallel processing often called ’async/await.’
With this work completed, we believe that there are no major hurdles
left towards a stable 1.0 release of Routinator.

We have also tightened the rules for validation of RPKI objects based
on community feedback. Routinator now discards CRLs that are mentioned
on certificates and are present in the repository but fail to appear on
their manifests or don’t match their manifest hash. This results in
these objects being invalid.

An option was added to change how Routinator deals with stale CRLs and
manifests. Stale here means that they have been promised to be updated
by now but that hasn’t happened. Until now, Routinator logged a warning
and used them anyway. You can now select between rejecting, warning,
and quietly accepting these objects via the new --stale option.

Finally, there are a few additional niceties: Routinator now can
produce output for Bird and Bird 2 and all output formats are now
available via the HTTP server. We have also optimized memory
consumption quite a bit.

You can find the complete list of changes in the release notes at


Happy Routinating!
