7 -- ircd-hybrid-8.1.2 Release Notes
8 o) Added general::cycle_on_host_change configuration option
9 o) Added general::stats_u_oper_only configuration option
10 o) Added support for SHA-256 ssl certificate fingerprint based operator{}

14 fingerprints
15 o) Added operator::ssl_connection_required configuration option. See
16 doc/reference.conf for more information

18 to keep track of what users are connected via SSL, and allows to see
19 ssl-status of remote clients in a /whois
20 o) Fixed a server name leak with server hiding enabled. Reported by
21 Adam <adam@anope.org>

25 ########################################################################
26 o) IMPORTANT: moved disable_remote_command configuration directive from
27 general{} block to serverhide{} block
28 ########################################################################
29 o) Minor code cleanups/performance improvements
30 o) Fixed bug where opers could see LOCOPS messages even if they don't have
31 the +l mode set
32 o) Fixed bug where non-SSL clients could join +S channels on non-SSL servers
33 o) Implemented motd{} configuration blocks. See doc/reference.conf for more
34 information
35 o) "STATS T" shows configured MOTD files

45
46 -- ircd-hybrid-8.1.0beta5 Release Notes
47 o) Removed 'remote', and 'global_kill' oper flags, and added 'connect',
48 'squit', and 'kill' flags for better fine-tuning instead. Whether or
49 not a specific action is allowed on a remote server can be controlled
50 by appending the ':remote' flag. For example: 'kill' allows only local
51 clients to be killed, whereas 'kill:remote' allows to issue a KILL for
52 remote clients
53 o) Added 'locops' and 'wallops' to irc-operator flags
54 o) Improve/cleanup HELP system
55
56
57 -- ircd-hybrid-8.1.0beta4 Release Notes

73 sending messages to a channel

241 o) Implemented full services support, including but not limited to the
242 following changes:
243 - Added SVSNICK, and SVSMODE command handlers
244 - Added service stamps to NICK/UID messages
245 - Added SVS to server capabilities (CAPAB). SVS capable servers can
246 deal with extended NICK/UID messages that contain service IDs/stamps.

248 previously used usermode +r.
249 - Added usermode +r (registered nick) and channelmode +r (registered channel)
250 - Added usermode +R (only registered clients may send a private message)
251 - Added channelmode +R (only registered clients may join that channel)
252 - Various services shortcuts have been added (/NS, /CS, /NICKSERV, /CHANSERV, etc.)
253 - Added services{} block to ircd.conf
254 - Added services_name directive to general{} block
255 - Added GLOBOPS mainly for services compatibility, but can be used by operators, too
256 o) Removed RKLINE and RXLINE commands. Regular expression based bans should
257 only be added via ircd.conf
258 o) Added 'globops', 'restart', 'dline', 'undline' and 'module' operator
259 privilege flags. Read doc/reference.conf for further explanation of what
260 these flags control
261 o) Removed Idle-time klines
262 o) Cleaned up modules API. Old modules won't work anymore
263 o) Removed general::burst_away configuration directive. AWAY bursts are now
264 controlled via connect::flags explicitly

266 file sizes. Log timestamp format is ISO8601 now
267 o) Added support for remote D-lines
268 o) Added usermode +H which is basically a replacement for the hidden_admin and
269 hidden_oper operator flags. With usermode +H, irc operator status can now
270 be hidden even on remote servers
271 o) Added CIDR support for operator{} blocks
272 o) Removed the servlink program. ircd-hybrid can now make use of
273 SSL/TLS for inter-server communication.
274 NOTE: compressed server links are of course still available, but a SSL/TLS
275 connection is required, as compression is now handled via OpenSSL
276 o) Removed 'ssl_server_protocol' configuration directive and
277 added 'ssl_client_method' and 'ssl_server_method' instead.
278 Both of these options can now be changed at runtime
279 o) Oper login IDs are no longer limited to NICKLEN*2
280 o) Removed channel::burst_topicwho configuration option. Topicsetters are
281 now sent by default
