Would say so. There are no known bugs, but it lacks some features; the
most obvious one being that it only speaks IPv6 (because Bird lacks
dual-stack support).

Feel free to take it for a spin and report any bugs you find, though! :)

Nope. The IETF working group has only just been formed a couple of
months ago, and so there's not a consensus on what form any security
features of Babel would take. Once we get around to discussing the
security features I'll start thinking about implementing it, but until
then, no auth...
