32 michael 1441 o) Replaced MODLOAD, MODUNLOAD, MODRELOAD, MODLIST and MODRESTART commands
33     with the new MODULE command which can be fed with the LOAD, UNLOAD, RELOAD

43 michael 1245 -- ircd-hybrid-8beta1 Release Notes
44 michael 1244 o) Implemented full services support. Among other things, the following changes
45     have been done for this:
46     - Added SVSNICK, and SVSMODE command handlers
47     - Added service stamps to NICK/UID messages
48 michael 1409 - Added SVS to server capabilities (CAPAB). SVS capable servers can
49 michael 1420 deal with extended NICK/UID messages that contain service IDs/stamps.
50 michael 1244 - Usermode +r (registered nick) has been added, as well as
51 michael 1274 channelmode +r (registered channel)
52     - Now that usermode +r has a different function than before, rejected
53     client notices now go to new usermode +j
54 michael 1244 - Various services shortcuts have been added (/NS, /CS, /NICKSERV, /CHANSERV, etc.)
55     - Added channelmode +R (only registered clients may join that channel)
56     - Added usermode +R (only registered clients may send a private message)
57     - Added services{} block to ircd.conf
58     - Added services_name directive to general{} block
59 michael 1421 - Added GLOBOPS mainly for services compatibility, but can be used by operators, too
60 michael 1244 o) RKLINE and RXLINE commands have been removed. Regular expression based
61     bans should only be added via ircd.conf
62 michael 1315 o) Added 'globops', 'restart', 'dline', 'undline' and 'module' operator privilege flags.
63     Read doc/example.conf for further explanation of what these flags
64 michael 1274 are supposed to be doing
65 michael 1244 o) Idle-time klines have been removed
66     o) Cleaned up modules API. Old modules won't work anymore
67 michael 1274 o) Remove general::burst_away configuration directive. AWAY bursts are now
68     controlled via connect::flags explicitly
69     o) Introduced new logging subsystem including log rotation based on
70 michael 1418 file sizes. Log timestamp format is ISO8601 now
71 michael 1315 o) Added support for remote D-lines
72     o) Added usermode +H which is basically a replacement for the hidden_admin and
73     hidden_oper operator flags. With usermode +H, irc operator status can now
74     be hidden even on remote servers
75 michael 1418 o) Added CIDR support for operator{} blocks
76 michael 1315 o) The servlink program has been removed. ircd-hybrid can now make use of SSL/TLS
77     for inter-server communication.
78     NOTE: compressed server links are of course still available, but a SSL/TLS
79     connection is required, as compression is now handled via the OpenSSL library
80 michael 1418 o) Removed 'ssl_server_protocol' configuration directive and
81     added 'ssl_client_method' and 'ssl_server_method' instead.
82     Both of these options can now be changed at runtime
83 michael 1382 o) Oper login IDs are no longer limited to NICKLEN*2
84 michael 1401 o) Removed channel::burst_topicwho configuration option. Topicsetters are

88 michael 1409 o) Overall code cleanup and speed improvements
