1 -- ircd-hybrid-8beta2 Release Notes
2 o) channel::disable_fake_channels now also disables ascii 29 (mIRC italic)
3 when set to yes
4 o) Added channel::max_chans_per_oper configuration directive. The old way
5 was to let ircops join three times the amount of max_chans_per_user
7 with the new MODULE command which can be fed with the LOAD, UNLOAD, RELOAD
8 and LIST parameters.
9 MODRESTART has been entirely removed. Use "MODULE RELOAD *" to reload all modules
12 -- ircd-hybrid-8beta1 Release Notes
13 o) Implemented full services support. Among other things, the following changes
14 have been done for this:
15 - Added SVSNICK, and SVSMODE command handlers
16 - Added service stamps to NICK/UID messages
17 - Added SVS to server capabilities (CAPAB). SVS capable servers can
18 deal with extended NICK/UID messages that contain service IDs/stamps.
19 - Usermode +r (registered nick) has been added, as well as
20 channelmode +r (registered channel)
21 - Now that usermode +r has a different function than before, rejected
22 client notices now go to new usermode +j
23 - Various services shortcuts have been added (/NS, /CS, /NICKSERV, /CHANSERV, etc.)
24 - Added channelmode +R (only registered clients may join that channel)
25 - Added usermode +R (only registered clients may send a private message)
26 - Added services{} block to ircd.conf
27 - Added services_name directive to general{} block
28 - Added GLOBOPS mainly for services compatibility, but can be used by operators, too
29 o) RKLINE and RXLINE commands have been removed. Regular expression based
30 bans should only be added via ircd.conf
31 o) Added 'globops', 'restart', 'dline', 'undline' and 'module' operator privilege flags.
32 Read doc/example.conf for further explanation of what these flags
33 are supposed to be doing
34 o) Idle-time klines have been removed
35 o) Cleaned up modules API. Old modules won't work anymore
36 o) Remove general::burst_away configuration directive. AWAY bursts are now
37 controlled via connect::flags explicitly
38 o) Introduced new logging subsystem including log rotation based on
39 file sizes. Log timestamp format is ISO8601 now
40 o) Added support for remote D-lines
41 o) Added usermode +H which is basically a replacement for the hidden_admin and
42 hidden_oper operator flags. With usermode +H, irc operator status can now
43 be hidden even on remote servers
44 o) Added CIDR support for operator{} blocks
45 o) The servlink program has been removed. ircd-hybrid can now make use of SSL/TLS
46 for inter-server communication.
47 NOTE: compressed server links are of course still available, but a SSL/TLS
48 connection is required, as compression is now handled via the OpenSSL library
49 o) Removed 'ssl_server_protocol' configuration directive and
50 added 'ssl_client_method' and 'ssl_server_method' instead.
51 Both of these options can now be changed at runtime
52 o) Oper login IDs are no longer limited to NICKLEN*2
53 o) Removed channel::burst_topicwho configuration option. Topicsetters are
54 now sent by default
55 o) "STATS Y|y" now reports CIDR limits as well
56 o) Added m_webirc.c to contrib/
57 o) Overall code cleanup and speed improvements
