- we are finally 7.3-STABLE

1 -- ircd-hybrid-7.3.0 Release Notes
2 o) Added Bulgarian language file provided by Borislav Borisov
3 o) Server hostmasking has been removed due to TS6 requirements
4 o) Fixed broken IPv6 detection
5 o) Minor code optimizations. Reduced memory consumption
8 -- ircd-hybrid-7.3-rc1 Release Notes
9 o) Major 64-bit cleanups and portability fixes.
10 o) Fixed bug where unregistered clients were not able to complete registration
11 process with /quote PONG <ping_cookie> in case the client was assigned a
12 zero value ping-cookie. This may only happen with general::ping_cookie
13 being enabled.
14 o) "STATS z" now shows the actual amount of memory consumption being
15 used by channel bans/excepts/invites.
16 o) Fixed archaic bug where bursting servers with missconfigured NICKLEN were
17 able to desync the network's nickname database.
18 o) The PCRE library has been removed from the ircd sources. ./configure will
19 now automatically detect an already installed version of the PCRE library.
20 o) Various resolver improvements and fixes
21 o) Implemented GUNGLINE (global ungline)
22 o) Completely rewrote build system. We're now using automake and libtool
23 o) Added support for SHA-256/512 encrypted passwords to mkpasswd. Whether
24 passwords hashed using these algorithms will work depends on the system's
25 crypt() implementation. For example, SHA-256/512 is available in glibc since
26 version 2.7.
27 o) Added ssl_server_protocol configuration option to servinfo{}.
28 Valid flags are 'sslv3' and 'tlsv1'
29 o) Added new 'server' option to listener::flags. Listener with that flag
30 set may only accept server connections.
31 o) Fixed occasional core when placing RESVs on channel names
32 o) Fixed topic desynchronization which sometimes may
33 happen during netbursts
34 o) WATCH support implemented. Known from other irc-daemons, such
35 as Dreamforge and Bahamut. The general::max_watch configuration directive
36 has been added in order to allow run-time configuration of how many
37 watch entries a single client may have on its watchlist.
38 o) Fixed bug which would cause invalid invisible counts on oper-up in case
39 operator::umodes and/or general::oper_umodes contains 'invisible'
40 o) Removed broken LazyLinks
41 o) Removed --disable-gline-voting configure option
42 o) Minor code optimizations and cleanups
43 o) ACCEPT now supports nick!user@host masks
44 o) Unregistered clients are no longer allowed to request the server's motd
45 o) general::dot_in_ip6_addr configuration option is obsolete and no longer exists
46 o) Dropped support for old style 'operflag = yes|no;' format
49 -- ircd-hybrid-7.2.3 Release Notes
50 o) Added ircd-italian.lang language file
51 o) Added -full to etrace
52 o) Added +C for opers
53 o) Fixed core in temp channel resv
54 o) Fixed CHALLENGE to work with user=IP
55 o) Misc fixes to TESTMASK and TESTLINE
56 o) Added support for nick masks to TESTMASK
57 o) Fixed /modlist to show up whether or not a module is resident
58 o) Fixed command line arguments handling to allow more than one switch
59 o) Fixed numeric delivery for mixed TS5 target on the other side of a TS6 server.
62 -- ircd-hybrid-7.2.2 Release Notes
63 o) Added channel::disable_fake_channels config directive
64 o) Fixed broken FORCEJOIN (contrib)
65 o) Added missing documentation for connect::vhost
66 o) Fixed problem with G-Line voting
67 o) Fixed "STATS ?" so it doesn't report negative traffic statistics
68 o) Fixed core in m_mkpasswd.c (contrib)
69 o) Reduced memory usage for channel members
70 o) Added general::stats_e_disabled which simply disables "STATS e"
71 for other operators and administrators
72 o) Ignore signal SIGXFSZ to prevent the daemon from dying on missconfigured
73 file size limits
74 o) Slight optimizations to the block allocator
75 o) Fixed harmless bug that could result in incorrect bytes sent statistics
76 in "STATS t"
77 o) "STATS y|Y" now shows whether a class is active or disabled
78 o) Added ircd-brazilian_pt.lang language file
79 o) Misc. ACCEPT fixes. E.g. don't remove an accept record if a client is
80 changing between equivalent nicknames like 'nick' and 'NiCk'.
81 o) Minor resolv.conf parser fixes. Added missing support for ';' comments
82 o) Fixed core on MODRESTART
85 -- ircd-hybrid-7.2.1 Release Notes

89 in doc/technical
90 o) Speeded up command parsing
91 o) Fixed occasional core dump on UN*LINE
92 o) Fixed bug where particular clients would always receive
93 "Load is temporarily too heavy" message

95 been reduced for remote clients
