  Notes:
19

  
20
  Definitions of OSPFv2, OSPFv3 and RIP NG protocols now use keywords
21
  'ospf v2', 'ospf v3' and 'rip ng' instead of 'ospf2', 'ospf3' and 'ripng'.
22

  
23
  Flows and ROAs no longer use phony next hops, so there is no need to use
24
  'drop' or 'unreachable' in their static route definitions.

  See doc/bird.conf.example2 for configuration examples.
