- removed mr_motd. unregistered clients may no longer request a MOTD

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
40 -- ircd-hybrid-7.2.3 Release Notes
41 o) Added ircd-italian.lang language file
42 o) Added -full to etrace
43 o) Added +C for opers
44 o) Fixed core in temp channel resv
45 o) Fixed CHALLENGE to work with user=IP
46 o) Misc fixes to TESTMASK and TESTLINE
47 o) Added support for nick masks to TESTMASK
48 o) Fixed /modlist to show up whether or not a module is resident
49 o) Fixed command line arguments handling to allow more than one switch
50 o) Fixed numeric delivery for mixed TS5 target on the other side of a TS6 server.
53 -- ircd-hybrid-7.2.2 Release Notes
54 o) Added channel::disable_fake_channels config directive
55 o) Fixed broken FORCEJOIN (contrib)
56 o) Added missing documentation for connect::vhost
57 o) Fixed problem with G-Line voting
58 o) Fixed "STATS ?" so it doesn't report negative traffic statistics
59 o) Fixed core in m_mkpasswd.c (contrib)
60 o) Reduced memory usage for channel members
61 o) Added general::stats_e_disabled which simply disables "STATS e"
62 for other operators and administrators
63 o) Ignore signal SIGXFSZ to prevent the daemon from dying on missconfigured
64 file size limits
65 o) Slight optimizations to the block allocator
66 o) Fixed harmless bug that could result in incorrect bytes sent statistics
67 in "STATS t"
68 o) "STATS y|Y" now shows whether a class is active or disabled
69 o) Added ircd-brazilian_pt.lang language file
70 o) Misc. ACCEPT fixes. E.g. don't remove an accept record if a client is
71 changing between equivalent nicknames like 'nick' and 'NiCk'.
72 o) Minor resolv.conf parser fixes. Added missing support for ';' comments
73 o) Fixed core on MODRESTART
