- contrib/m_change.c,ip_cloaking.c: CHGHOST/CHGIDENT didn't update bancache. Fixed

1 -- ircd-hybrid-8.0.0 Release Notes
2 o) Fixed an off-by-one with spoofs. Spoofs are now also checked for
3 invalid characters.
4 o) Removed general::use_whois_actually configuration directive. This is
5 now enabled by default
6 o) Minor SQUIT handling fixes
7 o) Fixed bancache not being updated on CHGHOST/CHGIDENT
10 -- ircd-hybrid-8rc1 Release Notes
11 o) Removed general::client_flood configuration option and added the
12 new 'recvq' configuration directive to class{} blocks.
13 The max size of a receive queue can be seen in "STATS Y"
14 for each class
15 o) A server's description can again include the '[' and ']' characters
18 -- ircd-hybrid-8beta3 Release Notes
19 o) Fixed wrong syntax of several language files
20 o) &localchannels have been removed
21 o) /messaging opers@some.server is no longer supported
22 o) Fixed bug that would possibly lead to a topic desynchronization
23 o) Removed serverhide::disable_hidden configuration option
24 o) Dropped ircd-hybrid-6 GLINE compatibility mode
25 o) use_invex, use_except and use_knock configuration options
26 have been removed. These features are now enabled by default
29 -- ircd-hybrid-8beta2 Release Notes
30 o) channel::disable_fake_channels now also disables ascii 29 (mIRC italic)
31 when set to yes
32 o) Added channel::max_chans_per_oper configuration directive. The old way
33 was to let ircops join three times the amount of max_chans_per_user
35 with the new MODULE command which can be fed with the LOAD, UNLOAD, RELOAD
36 and LIST parameters.
37 MODRESTART has been entirely removed. Use "MODULE RELOAD *" to reload all modules
38 o) Added back server notice when a client tries to obtain a reserved nick name
39 o) Removed OMOTD module
40 o) Added 'set' to operator privilege flags. Gives access to the "SET" command
41 o) Improved TS6 support
42 o) Channel keys/passwords are now case sensitive
45 -- ircd-hybrid-8beta1 Release Notes
46 o) Implemented full services support. Among other things, the following changes
47 have been done for this:
48 - Added SVSNICK, and SVSMODE command handlers
49 - Added service stamps to NICK/UID messages
50 - Added SVS to server capabilities (CAPAB). SVS capable servers can
51 deal with extended NICK/UID messages that contain service IDs/stamps.
52 - Usermode +r (registered nick) has been added, as well as
53 channelmode +r (registered channel)
54 - Now that usermode +r has a different function than before, rejected
55 client notices now go to new usermode +j
56 - Various services shortcuts have been added (/NS, /CS, /NICKSERV, /CHANSERV, etc.)
57 - Added channelmode +R (only registered clients may join that channel)
58 - Added usermode +R (only registered clients may send a private message)
59 - Added services{} block to ircd.conf
60 - Added services_name directive to general{} block
61 - Added GLOBOPS mainly for services compatibility, but can be used by operators, too
62 o) RKLINE and RXLINE commands have been removed. Regular expression based
63 bans should only be added via ircd.conf
64 o) Added 'globops', 'restart', 'dline', 'undline' and 'module' operator privilege flags.
65 Read doc/example.conf for further explanation of what these flags
66 are supposed to be doing
67 o) Idle-time klines have been removed
68 o) Cleaned up modules API. Old modules won't work anymore
69 o) Remove general::burst_away configuration directive. AWAY bursts are now
70 controlled via connect::flags explicitly
71 o) Introduced new logging subsystem including log rotation based on
72 file sizes. Log timestamp format is ISO8601 now
73 o) Added support for remote D-lines
74 o) Added usermode +H which is basically a replacement for the hidden_admin and
75 hidden_oper operator flags. With usermode +H, irc operator status can now
76 be hidden even on remote servers
77 o) Added CIDR support for operator{} blocks
78 o) The servlink program has been removed. ircd-hybrid can now make use of SSL/TLS
79 for inter-server communication.
80 NOTE: compressed server links are of course still available, but a SSL/TLS
81 connection is required, as compression is now handled via the OpenSSL library
82 o) Removed 'ssl_server_protocol' configuration directive and
83 added 'ssl_client_method' and 'ssl_server_method' instead.
84 Both of these options can now be changed at runtime
85 o) Oper login IDs are no longer limited to NICKLEN*2
86 o) Removed channel::burst_topicwho configuration option. Topicsetters are
87 now sent by default
88 o) "STATS Y|y" now reports CIDR limits as well
89 o) Added m_webirc.c to contrib/
90 o) Overall code cleanup and speed improvements
