1 -- ircd-hybrid-7.3-rc1 RELNOTES
2 o) Major 64-bit cleanups and portability fixes.
3 o) Fixed bug where unregistered clients were not able to complete registration
4 process with /quote PONG <ping_cookie> in case the client was assigned a
5 zero value ping-cookie. This may only happen with general::ping_cookie
6 being enabled.
7 o) "STATS z" now shows the actual amount of memory consumption being
8 used by channel bans/excepts/invites.
9 o) Fixed archaic bug where bursting servers with missconfigured NICKLEN were
10 able to desync the network's nickname database.
11 o) The PCRE library has been removed from the ircd sources. ./configure will
12 now automatically detect an already installed version of the PCRE library.
13 o) Various resolver improvements and fixes
14 o) Implemented GUNGLINE (global ungline)
15 o) Completely rewrote build system. We're now using automake and libtool
16 o) Added support for SHA-256/512 encrypted passwords to mkpasswd. Whether
17 passwords hashed using these algorithms will work depends on the system's
18 crypt() implementation. For example, SHA-256/512 is available in glibc since
19 version 2.7.
20 o) Added ssl_server_protocol configuration option to servinfo{}.
21 Valid flags are 'sslv3' and 'tlsv1'
22 o) Added new 'server' option to listener::flags. Listener with that flag
23 set may only accept server connections.
24 o) Fixed occasional core when placing RESVs on channel names
25 o) Fixed topic desynchronization which sometimes may
26 happen during netbursts
27 o) WATCH support implemented. Known from other irc-daemons, such
28 as Dreamforge and Bahamut. The general::max_watch configuration directive
29 has been added in order to allow run-time configuration of how many
30 watch entries a single client may have on its watchlist.
31 o) Fixed bug which would cause invalid invisible counts on oper-up in case
32 operator::umodes and/or general::oper_umodes contains 'invisible'
33 o) Removed broken LazyLinks
34 o) Removed --disable-gline-voting configure option
35 o) Minor code optimizations and cleanups
36 o) ACCEPT now supports nick!user@host masks
37
38
39 -- ircd-hybrid-7.2.3 RELNOTES
40 o) Added ircd-italian.lang language file
41 o) Added -full to etrace
42 o) Added +C for opers
43 o) Fixed core in temp channel resv
44 o) Fixed CHALLENGE to work with user=IP
45 o) Misc fixes to TESTMASK and TESTLINE
46 o) Added support for nick masks to TESTMASK
47 o) Fixed /modlist to show up whether or not a module is resident
48 o) Fixed command line arguments handling to allow more than one switch
49 o) Fixed numeric delivery for mixed TS5 target on the other side of a TS6 server.

52 -- ircd-hybrid-7.2.2 RELNOTES
53 o) Added channel::disable_fake_channels config directive
54 o) Fixed broken FORCEJOIN (contrib)
55 o) Added missing documentation for connect::vhost
56 o) Fixed problem with G-Line voting
57 o) Fixed "STATS ?" so it doesn't report negative traffic statistics
58 o) Fixed core in m_mkpasswd.c (contrib)
59 o) Reduced memory usage for channel members
60 o) Added general::stats_e_disabled which simply disables "STATS e"
61 for other operators and administrators
62 o) Ignore signal SIGXFSZ to prevent the daemon from dying on missconfigured
63 file size limits
64 o) Slight optimizations to the block allocator
65 o) Fixed harmless bug that could result in incorrect bytes sent statistics
66 in "STATS t"
67 o) "STATS y|Y" now shows whether a class is active or disabled
68 o) Added ircd-brazilian_pt.lang language file
69 o) Misc. ACCEPT fixes. E.g. don't remove an accept record if a client is
70 changing between equivalent nicknames like 'nick' and 'NiCk'.
71 o) Minor resolv.conf parser fixes. Added missing support for ';' comments
72 o) Fixed core on MODRESTART

81 o) Fixed occasional core dump on UN*LINE
82 o) Fixed bug where particular clients would always receive
83 "Load is temporarily too heavy" message
84 o) Improved memory consumption, i.e. memory consumption has
85 been reduced for remote clients
86 o) Fixed possible core in case default_cipher_preference directive isn't set
