Dear mailing list,

We are very happy to introduce Krill 0.5.0 'Serve No Turf'. This release is a major step forward for the project, improving the installation, onboarding, interoperability and usability of Krill.

The most prominent change you will notice is that Krill now offers a multi-language user interface, which which was promised at GTER48. It currently includes support for English and Brazilian Portuguese.  Using the UI, you to set up a Certificate Authority, perform the parent and repository exchanges with your registry, and of course manage ROAs.

The UI is managed as a separate open source project, named Lagosta. The first release, Lagosta 0.1.0 'Fritto Misto', offers everything to get started with Krill. You can expect the UI to evolve heavily over time, including ROA suggestions, tagging and alerts. 

The user interface is compiled as static HTML and JS, which is bundled in the Krill package. We're proud that this addition resulted in just an 8MB increase of memory usage, making Krill still completely capable of running on minimalist hardware such as a Raspberry Pi.

Krill can now be installed from a new Linux machine in just seven steps, greatly simplifying the process. You can them immediately start using it using either the UI, CLI or API. Lastly, Krill now also offers a Prometheus monitoring end point.

You can find out more about the development and features in our blog post.

On behalf of the NLnet Labs RPKI team,
