- Update NEWS file

1 -- Noteworthy changes in version 1.1.11 (2021-??-??)
2 * The `irc::tls_disable_certificate_verification` configuration option
3 has been implemented. Setting this to `yes` turns off verification of
4 the remote peer's certificate.
5 Turning off certificate verification is generally discouraged and should
6 be done only for experimental purposes.

8
9 -- Noteworthy changes in version 1.1.10 (2021-01-30)
10 * Timers have been changed to use monotonic time instead of wall-clock time
11 * Fixed broken build with LibreSSL
12
13
14 -- Noteworthy changes in version 1.1.9 (2020-11-16)
15 * Implemented support for loading a user-provided private key and tls client
16 certificate. The `irc::rsa_private_key_file`and `irc::tls_certificate_file`
17 configuration directives have been added for this.
18 As a side effect this now allows HOPM to use certificate fingerprints for
19 NickServ authentication
20 * The `vhost` configuration directive found in the irc {} and scanner {} blocks
21 has been renamed to `bind`
22
23
24 -- Noteworthy changes in version 1.1.8 (2020-07-05)
25 * Minimum supported OpenSSL version is 1.1.1 now
26 * Experimental TLS support for the irc client part has been implemented. We
27 only do TLSv1.2 and higher
28 * The `irc::tls` and `irc::tls_hostname_verification` configuration directives
29 have been added
30 * A possible out-of-bounds write in the irc parser logic has been fixed
31
32
33 -- Noteworthy changes in version 1.1.7 (2020-04-19)

36
37
38 -- Noteworthy changes in version 1.1.6 (2019-04-21)
39 * Fixed issue with ssh banner scans where hopm would test connections only

42
43

47 conditions
48 * The hopm process can now be restarted from the command line via `kill -HUP`
49 * Added `--enable-efence` switch to allow easy linking with the
50 electric fence memory debugger library
51 * Implemented proper support to kill users with vulnerable SSH versions by
52 version announcement. Patch provided by falsovsky (Pedro de Oliveira). See

67 `.include` configuration directive.
68
69
70 -- Noteworthy changes in version 1.1.2 (2016-05-15)
71 * Fixed archaic bug which can cause the scanner to either detect nothing or to
72 detect everything and therefore even kill legit clients
73
74
75 -- Noteworthy changes in version 1.1.1 (2016-01-03)
76 * Added `command_queue_size`, `command_interval`, and `command_timeout`,
77 configuration directives to the options {} block. See `doc/reference.conf`
78 for more information.
79 * Various updates to the `reference.conf`; added updated `connregex` directives
80 for ircd-hybrid in conjunction with user mode +F (far connect notices), and
81 UnrealIRCd 4.0.0, which now uses a different format for connect notices

106 disabled by default and can be enabled with `./configure --enable-assert`
