Overview of improvements made to v1.4 SAGITTA (next LTS release):
- Support for the Babel routing protocol was added. See documentation for details on how to set it up.
- FRR version was upgraded to v8.5. See below for the new BGP options this update brings.
- The containerization module podman now uses the netavark network stack. Benefits include better IPv6 support, improved performance and improved support for containers attached to multiple networks. Although `netavark' doesn't natively support VRF, container networks can be assigned to VRF networks on VyOS.
- VyOS now uses chrony rather than the old NTPd for its NTP implementation, which allows for machine-readable NTP op mode output and more future improvements.
