- m_message.c: /messaging opers@some.server is no longer supported

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