- create ircd-hybrid-8 "branch"

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
6 o) User IDs are now shown in client connection notices
7 o) Increased maximum temporary kline time to 360 days
8 o) Added back STATS/TRACE/MOTD/ADMIN request notices. Removed
9 spy_*_notice modules accordingly.
10 o) Channelmode +O; channel can be joined by ircops only.
11 o) Channelmode +S; only clients with a secure connection (ssl/tls)
12 can join this channel.
15 -- ircd-hybrid-7.3-rc1 Release Notes
16 o) Major 64-bit cleanups and portability fixes.
17 o) Fixed bug where unregistered clients were not able to complete registration
18 process with /quote PONG <ping_cookie> in case the client was assigned a
19 zero value ping-cookie. This may only happen with general::ping_cookie
20 being enabled.
21 o) "STATS z" now shows the actual amount of memory consumption being
22 used by channel bans/excepts/invites.
23 o) Fixed archaic bug where bursting servers with missconfigured NICKLEN were
24 able to desync the network's nickname database.
25 o) The PCRE library has been removed from the ircd sources. ./configure will
26 now automatically detect an already installed version of the PCRE library.
27 o) Various resolver improvements and fixes
28 o) Implemented GUNGLINE (global ungline)
29 o) Completely rewrote build system. We're now using automake and libtool
30 o) Added support for SHA-256/512 encrypted passwords to mkpasswd. Whether
31 passwords hashed using these algorithms will work depends on the system's
32 crypt() implementation. For example, SHA-256/512 is available in glibc since
33 version 2.7.
34 o) Added ssl_server_protocol configuration option to servinfo{}.
35 Valid flags are 'sslv3' and 'tlsv1'
36 o) Added new 'server' option to listener::flags. Listener with that flag
37 set may only accept server connections.
38 o) Fixed occasional core when placing RESVs on channel names
39 o) Fixed topic desynchronization which sometimes may
40 happen during netbursts
41 o) WATCH support implemented. Known from other irc-daemons, such
42 as Dreamforge and Bahamut. The general::max_watch configuration directive
43 has been added in order to allow run-time configuration of how many
44 watch entries a single client may have on its watchlist.
45 o) Fixed bug which would cause invalid invisible counts on oper-up in case
46 operator::umodes and/or general::oper_umodes contains 'invisible'
47 o) Removed broken LazyLinks
48 o) Removed --disable-gline-voting configure option
49 o) Minor code optimizations and cleanups
50 o) ACCEPT now supports nick!user@host masks
51 o) Unregistered clients are no longer allowed to request the server's motd
52 o) general::dot_in_ip6_addr configuration option is obsolete and no longer exists
53 o) Dropped support for old style 'operflag = yes|no;' format
56 -- ircd-hybrid-7.2.3 Release Notes
57 o) Added ircd-italian.lang language file
58 o) Added -full to etrace
59 o) Added +C for opers
60 o) Fixed core in temp channel resv
61 o) Fixed CHALLENGE to work with user=IP
62 o) Misc fixes to TESTMASK and TESTLINE
63 o) Added support for nick masks to TESTMASK
64 o) Fixed /modlist to show up whether or not a module is resident
65 o) Fixed command line arguments handling to allow more than one switch
66 o) Fixed numeric delivery for mixed TS5 target on the other side of a TS6 server.
69 -- ircd-hybrid-7.2.2 Release Notes
70 o) Added channel::disable_fake_channels config directive
71 o) Fixed broken FORCEJOIN (contrib)
72 o) Added missing documentation for connect::vhost
73 o) Fixed problem with G-Line voting
74 o) Fixed "STATS ?" so it doesn't report negative traffic statistics
75 o) Fixed core in m_mkpasswd.c (contrib)
76 o) Reduced memory usage for channel members
77 o) Added general::stats_e_disabled which simply disables "STATS e"
78 for other operators and administrators
79 o) Ignore signal SIGXFSZ to prevent the daemon from dying on missconfigured
80 file size limits
81 o) Slight optimizations to the block allocator
82 o) Fixed harmless bug that could result in incorrect bytes sent statistics
83 in "STATS t"
84 o) "STATS y|Y" now shows whether a class is active or disabled
85 o) Added ircd-brazilian_pt.lang language file
86 o) Misc. ACCEPT fixes. E.g. don't remove an accept record if a client is
87 changing between equivalent nicknames like 'nick' and 'NiCk'.
88 o) Minor resolv.conf parser fixes. Added missing support for ';' comments
89 o) Fixed core on MODRESTART
