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
40 o) Channel keys/passwords are now case sensitive
43 -- ircd-hybrid-8beta1 Release Notes
44 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 - Added SVS to server capabilities (CAPAB). SVS capable servers can
49 deal with extended NICK/UID messages that contain service IDs/stamps.
50 - Usermode +r (registered nick) has been added, as well as
51 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 - 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 - Added GLOBOPS mainly for services compatibility, but can be used by operators, too
60 o) RKLINE and RXLINE commands have been removed. Regular expression based
61 bans should only be added via ircd.conf
62 o) Added 'globops', 'restart', 'dline', 'undline' and 'module' operator privilege flags.
63 Read doc/example.conf for further explanation of what these flags
64 are supposed to be doing
65 o) Idle-time klines have been removed
66 o) Cleaned up modules API. Old modules won't work anymore
67 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 file sizes. Log timestamp format is ISO8601 now
71 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 o) Added CIDR support for operator{} blocks
76 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 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 o) Oper login IDs are no longer limited to NICKLEN*2
84 o) Removed channel::burst_topicwho configuration option. Topicsetters are
85 now sent by default
86 o) "STATS Y|y" now reports CIDR limits as well
87 o) Added m_webirc.c to contrib/
88 o) Overall code cleanup and speed improvements
