OpenBGPD 6.5p1 released

Claudio Jeker-3
We have released OpenBGPD 6.5p1, which will be arriving in the
OpenBGPD directory of your local OpenBSD mirror soon.  This is
the first stable update for the 6.5 version.

It includes the following changes:

  * Include OpenBSD 6.5 errata 004:
    Several issues were corrected in bgpd: "network" statements
    with no fixed prefix were incorrectly removed when configuration
    was reloaded, "export default-route" did not work, and "network
    0.0.0.0/0" could not be used in some cases.

  * Fixed issue with nexthop verification preventing a nexthop to be
    changed for ebgp sessions.  This uses getifaddrs(3) to figure
    out if a nexthop is directly connected or not.  This is still a
    workaround until platform specific FIB support is implemented.

  * Explicitly test for broken strnvis. NetBSD added a strnvis and
    unfortunately made it incompatible with the existing one in
    OpenBSD and Linux's libbsd (the former having existed for over
    ten years).  Even more unfortunately FreeBSD picked up this
    incompatible implementation.

OpenBGPD-portable is known to compile and run on FreeBSD 12.x, and
the Linux distributions Debian 9, and Ubuntu 14.04. It is our hope
that packagers take interest and help adapt OpenBGPD-portable to
more distributions.

We welcome feedback and improvements from the broader community.
Thanks to all of the contributors who helped make this release
possible.
