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 extended 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 - Added GLOBOPS mainly for services compatibility, but can be used by operators, too
18 o) RKLINE and RXLINE commands have been removed. Regular expression based
19 bans should only be added via ircd.conf
20 o) Added 'globops', 'restart', 'dline', 'undline' and 'module' operator privilege flags.
21 Read doc/example.conf for further explanation of what these flags
22 are supposed to be doing
23 o) Idle-time klines have been removed
24 o) Cleaned up modules API. Old modules won't work anymore
25 o) Remove general::burst_away configuration directive. AWAY bursts are now
26 controlled via connect::flags explicitly
27 o) Introduced new logging subsystem including log rotation based on
28 file sizes. Log timestamp format is ISO8601 now
29 o) Added support for remote D-lines
30 o) Added usermode +H which is basically a replacement for the hidden_admin and
31 hidden_oper operator flags. With usermode +H, irc operator status can now
32 be hidden even on remote servers
33 o) Added CIDR support for operator{} blocks
34 o) The servlink program has been removed. ircd-hybrid can now make use of SSL/TLS
35 for inter-server communication.
36 NOTE: compressed server links are of course still available, but a SSL/TLS
37 connection is required, as compression is now handled via the OpenSSL library
38 o) Removed 'ssl_server_protocol' configuration directive and
39 added 'ssl_client_method' and 'ssl_server_method' instead.
40 Both of these options can now be changed at runtime
41 o) Oper login IDs are no longer limited to NICKLEN*2
42 o) Removed channel::burst_topicwho configuration option. Topicsetters are
43 now sent by default
44 o) "STATS Y|y" now reports CIDR limits as well
45 o) Added m_webirc.c to contrib/
46 o) Overall code cleanup and speed improvements
