- Update NEWS file

1 -- ircd-hybrid-8.0.0 Release Notes
2 o) Fixed an off-by-one with spoofs. Spoofs are now also checked for
3 invalid characters.
4 o) Removed general::use_whois_actually configuration directive. This is
5 now enabled by default
8 -- ircd-hybrid-8rc1 Release Notes
9 o) Removed general::client_flood configuration option and added the
10 new 'recvq' configuration directive to class{} blocks.
11 The max size of a receive queue can be seen in "STATS Y"
12 for each class
13 o) A server's description can again include the '[' and ']' characters
16 -- ircd-hybrid-8beta3 Release Notes
17 o) Fixed wrong syntax of several language files
18 o) &localchannels have been removed
19 o) /messaging opers@some.server is no longer supported
20 o) Fixed bug that would possibly lead to a topic desynchronization
21 o) Removed serverhide::disable_hidden configuration option
22 o) Dropped ircd-hybrid-6 GLINE compatibility mode
23 o) use_invex, use_except and use_knock configuration options
24 have been removed. These features are now enabled by default
27 -- ircd-hybrid-8beta2 Release Notes
28 o) channel::disable_fake_channels now also disables ascii 29 (mIRC italic)
29 when set to yes
30 o) Added channel::max_chans_per_oper configuration directive. The old way
31 was to let ircops join three times the amount of max_chans_per_user
33 with the new MODULE command which can be fed with the LOAD, UNLOAD, RELOAD
34 and LIST parameters.
35 MODRESTART has been entirely removed. Use "MODULE RELOAD *" to reload all modules
36 o) Added back server notice when a client tries to obtain a reserved nick name
37 o) Removed OMOTD module
38 o) Added 'set' to operator privilege flags. Gives access to the "SET" command
39 o) Improved TS6 support
42 -- ircd-hybrid-8beta1 Release Notes
43 o) Implemented full services support. Among other things, the following changes
44 have been done for this:
45 - Added SVSNICK, and SVSMODE command handlers
46 - Added service stamps to NICK/UID messages
47 - Added SVS to server capabilities (CAPAB). SVS capable servers can
48 deal with extended NICK/UID messages that contain service IDs/stamps.
49 - Usermode +r (registered nick) has been added, as well as
50 channelmode +r (registered channel)
51 - Now that usermode +r has a different function than before, rejected
52 client notices now go to new usermode +j
53 - Various services shortcuts have been added (/NS, /CS, /NICKSERV, /CHANSERV, etc.)
54 - Added channelmode +R (only registered clients may join that channel)
55 - Added usermode +R (only registered clients may send a private message)
56 - Added services{} block to ircd.conf
57 - Added services_name directive to general{} block
58 - Added GLOBOPS mainly for services compatibility, but can be used by operators, too
59 o) RKLINE and RXLINE commands have been removed. Regular expression based
60 bans should only be added via ircd.conf
61 o) Added 'globops', 'restart', 'dline', 'undline' and 'module' operator privilege flags.
62 Read doc/example.conf for further explanation of what these flags
63 are supposed to be doing
64 o) Idle-time klines have been removed
65 o) Cleaned up modules API. Old modules won't work anymore
66 o) Remove general::burst_away configuration directive. AWAY bursts are now
67 controlled via connect::flags explicitly
68 o) Introduced new logging subsystem including log rotation based on
69 file sizes. Log timestamp format is ISO8601 now
70 o) Added support for remote D-lines
71 o) Added usermode +H which is basically a replacement for the hidden_admin and
72 hidden_oper operator flags. With usermode +H, irc operator status can now
73 be hidden even on remote servers
74 o) Added CIDR support for operator{} blocks
75 o) The servlink program has been removed. ircd-hybrid can now make use of SSL/TLS
76 for inter-server communication.
77 NOTE: compressed server links are of course still available, but a SSL/TLS
78 connection is required, as compression is now handled via the OpenSSL library
79 o) Removed 'ssl_server_protocol' configuration directive and
80 added 'ssl_client_method' and 'ssl_server_method' instead.
81 Both of these options can now be changed at runtime
82 o) Oper login IDs are no longer limited to NICKLEN*2
83 o) Removed channel::burst_topicwho configuration option. Topicsetters are
84 now sent by default
85 o) "STATS Y|y" now reports CIDR limits as well
86 o) Added m_webirc.c to contrib/
87 o) Overall code cleanup and speed improvements
