Quagga 0.99.24 Released

Item posted by David Lamparter <equinox> on Tue 03 Mar 2015 12:13:47 AM UTC.

Quagga 0.99.24 has been released, and is available in the usual place. All users are advised to upgrade.

This release announcement contains a list of user-visible changes, known issues, and an update to the PGP key - please click Read More below to read the entire announcement.

Major user-visible changes:

  • [pimd] New daemon: pimd provides IPv4 PIM-SSM multicast routing.
  • [bgpd] New feature: "next-hop-self all" to override nexthop on iBGP route reflector setups.
  • [bgpd] route-maps have a new action "set ipv6 next-hop peer-address"
  • [bgpd] route-maps have a new action "set as-path prepend last-as"
  • [bgpd] Update validity checking (particularly MP-BGP / IPv6 routes) was touched up significantly.  Please report possible bugs.
  • [ripd] New feature: RIP for IPv4 now supports equal-cost multipath (ECMP)
  • [zebra] Multicast RIB support has been extended.  It still is IPv4 only.
  • [zebra] "no link-detect" is now printed in configurations since it won't be the default anymore soon.  To retain current behaviour, re-save your configuration after updating to 0.99.24.

Distributor-visible changes:

  • --enable-pimd is added to enable pimd.  It is considered experimental, though unless the distribution target is embedded systems with little flash, there is no reason to not include it in packages.
  • --disable-ipv6 no longer exists as an option.  It's 2015, your C library really needs to have IPv6 support by now.
  • --disable-netlink no longer exists as an option.  It didn't work anyway.
  • --disable-solaris no longer exists as an option.  It only controlled some init scripts.
  • --enable-isisd is now the default.
  • mrlg.cgi is no longer included (it was severely outdated).  It can be found independently at
  • build on Linux with the musl C library should now work

Known issues:

  • isisd:
    • isisd is in "beta" state. Please supervise closely and report bugs.
    • special care is needed on non-Linux platforms due to OS-specific raw packet access backends that did not receive much testing.
  • ospf6d:
    • ospf6d is in "beta" state.
    • area support is broken/nonexistent

The PGP key used to sign this release is the same as for 0.99.23. However, the expiry on the subkeys has been pushed forward. Please update your copy of the key from a keyserver by running "gpg --refresh-keys 54CD2E60" or grab a fresh copy from the download area.
