Routinator 0.2.1 ‘Rated R’ released

Published: Fri 04 January 2019

We are stoked to announce the first release of Routinator in 2019, version 0.2.1 ‘Rated R.’

Routinator is an RPKI relying party software that collects and validates statements made in the Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) about allowed route origins and provides them to routers and concerned Internet citizens.

This release primarily fixes two bugs introduced with the configuration file support in 0.2.0. For one, Routinator failed to build on 32-bit systems. Secondly, the code and documentation disagreed on the name of the default configuration file. After checking back with users, we settled on $HOME/.routinator.conf.

However, since that didn’t seem enough to warrant a release in itself, we decided to try and make Routinator work on Windows as a bonus. Because of Rust’s built-in support for Windows, this turned out easier than expected. You still need to get rsync, though, in particular the one coming with Cygwin.

You can read about all the changes in this release in the complete Changelog. You can find more information on the Routinator on Github.
