[tor-relays] Bridge relays should upgrade to use the new bridge authority

Hello tor-relay folks,
I'm confused--not a new thing but likely that this group can help this
time. After Roger's email below, I updated my Tor bridges to current.
Strangely, NYX reports that they are the "un-recommended" release. When
I check with tor --version, I get a reply that is the current software.
Additionally, my bridges don't display when I enter their hashed
footprint into Tor Metrix. They always have before.
What goes on?
