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