Small formatting typo in documentation.

c8a6b9a3 04/16/2009 11:48 PM Ondrej Zajicek

Rewrite of buggy AS path matching.

Old AS path maching supposes thath AS number appears
only once in AS path, but that is not true. It also
contains some bugs related to AS path sets.

New code does not use any assumptions about semantic
structure of AS path. It is asymptotically slower than...

Documentation update

b1a597e0 03/31/2009 10:55 AM Ondrej Zajicek

Reimplementation of prefix sets.

Prefix sets were broken beyond any repair and have to be reimplemented.
They are reimplemented using a trie with bitmasks in nodes.
There is also change in the interpretation of minus prefix pattern,
but the old interpretation was already inconsistent with...

Documentation update

e29fa06e 11/14/2008 01:50 PM Ondrej Zajicek

New read-only route attribute 'proto' added. It returns a string
representing a name of the protocol that originated the route.
Strings can be compared using = or matched using ~. Routes can
be filtered, for example:

show route where proto ~ "bgp1*"

b21f68b4 11/08/2008 04:24 PM Ondrej Zajicek

Fix bugs in OSPF MD5 authentication. First bug is that default
values for MD5 password ID changed during reconfigure, Second
bug is that BIRD chooses password in first-fit manner, but RFC
says that it should use the one with the latest generate-from.

It also modifies the syntax for multiple passwords....

a92fe607 11/01/2008 11:55 AM Ondrej Zajicek

Implementation of route server.

b6bf284a 10/26/2008 09:59 PM Ondrej Zajicek

Bugfixes in MULIT_EXIT_DISC attribute handling.

- Old MED handling was completely different from behavior
specified in RFCs - for example they havn't been propagated
to neighboring areas.
- Update tie-breaking according to RFC 4271.
- Change default value for 'default bgp_med' configuration...
1adc17b4 10/26/2008 09:52 PM Ondrej Zajicek

Update of a documentation - new options for AS4, MD5 auth and route reflection.

94c42054 03/15/2005 10:06 PM Ondrej Filip

Added new parametr 'rx buffer <num>'. BIRD is able to receive
very large packets (if configured).

f735de02 02/21/2005 02:06 PM Ondrej Filip

Small typos in documentation.

d8c7d9e8 02/20/2005 04:27 AM Ondrej Filip

Since now I can also use 'dead interval', not just 'dead counter'.

Added note about *BSD.

3b16080c 07/14/2004 09:46 PM Ondrej Filip

Multiple OSPF areas can be attached.
Origination of summary LSA works.
Routing table calculation works.
Virtual links works.

Well, I hope, OSPF is fully compatible with RFC2328!!!!

62eee823 07/13/2004 09:27 PM Ondrej Filip

Default tick = 1. The today's CPU is fast enough.

ea357b8b 06/26/2004 10:52 PM Ondrej Filip

Update of the documentation. (passwords and md5).
Option for md5 auth in config.

98ac6176 06/25/2004 04:39 PM Ondrej Filip

A lot of changes:
- metric is 3 byte long now
- summary lsa originating
- more OSPF areas possible
- virtual links
- better E1/E2 routes handling
- some bug fixes..

I have to do:
- md5 auth (last mandatory item from rfc2328)
- !!!!DEBUG!!!!! (mainly virtual link system has probably a lot of bugs)...

Cleanup in show route import <p>.

9c763123 04/06/2003 07:35 PM Martin Mares

Updated the documentation building tools to work with a recent linuxdoc-tools package.

Note that this is (and always was) a terrible hack and we really should
replace it with something reasonable which wouldn't need changing every
time linuxdoc-tools evolve....

30c34a10 12/07/2001 05:10 PM Ondrej Filip

Small bugfix in RIP documentation.

16319aeb 08/12/2001 12:09 AM Ondrej Filip

Some misspells.

e3bc10fd 09/02/2000 08:54 AM Ondrej Filip

Added stub interface. (Interface which is propagated to OSPF but
it does not sends nor listens packets.)

I added some new options, please look at it and look into doc if it's OK.

e7e2878b 09/02/2000 12:14 AM Ondrej Filip

More examples.

Better ospf metric explanation.

e7894ece 06/26/2000 08:02 PM Martin Mares

Added slides for our presentation, but don't export them to the
distribution tarball -- they are in Czech and therefore of no use
to almost anybody :(

99955b54 06/09/2000 06:31 AM Martin Mares

Proper building and installation of documentation in the Makefiles.

074a166d 06/07/2000 02:39 PM Pavel Machek

Better explanation for if/case, and RFC pointers for rip. Still searching for
RIPv2 rfc number!

f06a219a 06/07/2000 02:12 PM Ondrej Filip

Define element <progdoc> which initializes different formatting for the
programmer's guide (\raggedbottom etc.).

Also, omit "\usepackage{t1enc}", so that bullets work now.

b458ce83 06/05/2000 04:19 PM Martin Mares

Print out function synopsis as a part of the declaration.

Also, reverted my previous hack for `&' and replaced it by just disabling
the `& -> &' conversions.

b093c328 06/05/2000 12:52 PM Pavel Machek

Updates to both programmers and users doc

42b3daa0 06/05/2000 09:51 AM Martin Mares

Description of protocol module moved to where it belongs. If documentation
of standard modules is stored in their source, such auxilliary files
should be as well.

899fc0ab 06/03/2000 06:22 PM Martin Mares

`|' now works as it should.

2e130b5c 06/03/2000 05:02 PM Martin Mares

Recognize `|xxxx|' as verbatim text and typeset it using <tt>.

7e602d5e 06/02/2000 05:42 PM Martin Mares

Killed several bugs in kernel-doc. The most painful one was that it
was unable to recognize structure markers `&'.

371adba6 06/02/2000 05:23 PM Martin Mares

Use <chapt> for chapters, <sect> for sections and <sect1> for subsections.

6cba2d5e 06/02/2000 05:22 PM Martin Mares

Typographical enhancements. Now, the documentation is typeset using a modified
book style.

Please look at this version and tell me your opinion. Especially I don't feel
happy about the spacing and (not) indenting of paragraphs.

Also, I've removed things like "fax" and "letter" from the LaTeX mapping file.

3c6269b8 06/02/2000 01:42 PM Martin Mares

Added documentation on protocols.

Protocol hooks deserve an extra chapter (to come soon).

75317ab8 06/02/2000 09:51 AM Martin Mares

Spelling fixes.

f8e2d916 06/02/2000 09:46 AM Martin Mares

Documentation update

1c1f1b6c 05/31/2000 02:27 PM Martin Mares

This should be enough from the SGMLtools distribution to make the
SGMLtools happy.

The only symlink you need now is dist/birddoc -> dist/sgmltool. I'm
convinced it could be avoided by renaming the directory instead, but I'd
rather avoid it due to CVS pecularities.

1885aa8c 05/31/2000 02:25 PM Martin Mares

Clean LaTeX .aux and .toc files as well.

fcdddff5 05/31/2000 02:24 PM Martin Mares

Formatting of progdoc works in both HTML and LaTeX. The LaTeX output
still has somewhat weird spacing, but it will be hopefully easy
to fix.

aa185265 05/31/2000 01:54 PM Martin Mares

Updated headings and copyrights.

38cf78a9 05/31/2000 01:30 PM Martin Mares
