- Update NEWS

1 -- ircd-hybrid-8beta1 Release Notes
2 o) Implemented full services support. Among other things, the following changes
3 have been done for this:
4 - Added SVSNICK, and SVSMODE command handlers
5 - Added service stamps to NICK/UID messages
6 - Usermode +r (registered nick) has been added, as well as
7 channelmode +r (registered channel)
8 - Now that usermode +r has a different function than before, rejected
9 client notices now go to new usermode +j
10 - Various services shortcuts have been added (/NS, /CS, /NICKSERV, /CHANSERV, etc.)
11 - Added channelmode +R (only registered clients may join that channel)
12 - Added usermode +R (only registered clients may send a private message)
13 - Added services{} block to ircd.conf
14 - Added services_name directive to general{} block
15 o) RKLINE and RXLINE commands have been removed. Regular expression based
16 bans should only be added via ircd.conf
17 o) Added 'globops', 'restart', 'dline', 'undline' and 'module' operator privilege flags.
18 Read doc/example.conf for further explanation of what these flags
19 are supposed to be doing
20 o) Idle-time klines have been removed
21 o) Cleaned up modules API. Old modules won't work anymore
22 o) Remove general::burst_away configuration directive. AWAY bursts are now
23 controlled via connect::flags explicitly
24 o) Introduced new logging subsystem including log rotation based on
25 file sizes
26 o) Added support for remote D-lines
27 o) Added usermode +H which is basically a replacement for the hidden_admin and
28 hidden_oper operator flags. With usermode +H, irc operator status can now
29 be hidden even on remote servers
30 o) The servlink program has been removed. ircd-hybrid can now make use of SSL/TLS
31 for inter-server communication.
32 NOTE: compressed server links are of course still available, but a SSL/TLS
33 connection is required, as compression is now handled via the OpenSSL library
34 o) Oper login IDs are no longer limited to NICKLEN*2
