- Dropped support for old style 'operflag = yes|no;' configuration format

1 -- ircd-hybrid-7.3-rc1 Release Notes
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 o) Unregistered clients are no longer allowed to request the server's motd
38 o) general::dot_in_ip6_addr configuration option is obsolete and no longer exists
39 o) Dropped support for old style 'operflag = yes|no;' format
42 -- ircd-hybrid-7.2.3 Release Notes
43 o) Added ircd-italian.lang language file
44 o) Added -full to etrace
45 o) Added +C for opers
46 o) Fixed core in temp channel resv
47 o) Fixed CHALLENGE to work with user=IP
48 o) Misc fixes to TESTMASK and TESTLINE
49 o) Added support for nick masks to TESTMASK
50 o) Fixed /modlist to show up whether or not a module is resident
51 o) Fixed command line arguments handling to allow more than one switch
52 o) Fixed numeric delivery for mixed TS5 target on the other side of a TS6 server.
55 -- ircd-hybrid-7.2.2 Release Notes
56 o) Added channel::disable_fake_channels config directive
57 o) Fixed broken FORCEJOIN (contrib)
58 o) Added missing documentation for connect::vhost
59 o) Fixed problem with G-Line voting
60 o) Fixed "STATS ?" so it doesn't report negative traffic statistics
61 o) Fixed core in m_mkpasswd.c (contrib)
62 o) Reduced memory usage for channel members
63 o) Added general::stats_e_disabled which simply disables "STATS e"
64 for other operators and administrators
65 o) Ignore signal SIGXFSZ to prevent the daemon from dying on missconfigured
66 file size limits
67 o) Slight optimizations to the block allocator
68 o) Fixed harmless bug that could result in incorrect bytes sent statistics
69 in "STATS t"
70 o) "STATS y|Y" now shows whether a class is active or disabled
71 o) Added ircd-brazilian_pt.lang language file
72 o) Misc. ACCEPT fixes. E.g. don't remove an accept record if a client is
73 changing between equivalent nicknames like 'nick' and 'NiCk'.
74 o) Minor resolv.conf parser fixes. Added missing support for ';' comments
75 o) Fixed core on MODRESTART
78 -- ircd-hybrid-7.2.1 Release Notes

82 in doc/technical
83 o) Speeded up command parsing
84 o) Fixed occasional core dump on UN*LINE
85 o) Fixed bug where particular clients would always receive
86 "Load is temporarily too heavy" message
