Note: this version is primarily numbered "7.1" due to feedback from users about the major version number increasing too rapidly. It has the same amount of ongoing development as the usual FRR release cycle.

User-visible changes since the 7.0 release:

  • there is a new, work-in-progress gRPC northbound configuration interface plugin
  • zebra:
    • the table NNN command was removed from zebra since it has been broken for a long time.
    • the dataplane interface modularization and multithreading work is progressing steadily.
    • IPv6 Router Advertisements sent by zebra can now have RFC 8106 DNS options added to them.
  • bgpd:
    • EVPN can now be configured in non-default VRFs.
    • RFC 8212 — a default "deny" policy for eBGP sessions — can now be selected.

Aside from these, a huge amount of fixes and ongoing development is happening, as usual.

RPM Packages for 7.1:

Attached are some pre-built RPM binary packages.

The packages are all default builds based on the documentation with unmodified source

Full Package Sources etc are available on the CI system as artifacts

The packages require 'libyang' and the RPKI packages require the 'rtrlib' package as well.
Both of them are most likely not yet in any RPM repositories, but can be downloaded from the
NetDEF CI System.
