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