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