90 following changes:
91 - Added SVSNICK, and SVSMODE command handlers
92 - Added service stamps to NICK/UID messages
93 - Added SVS to server capabilities (CAPAB). SVS capable servers can
94 deal with extended NICK/UID messages that contain service IDs/stamps.
95 - Changed rejected client notices to go to new usermode +j. These
96 previously used usermode +r.
97 - Added usermode +r (registered nick) and channelmode +r (registered channel)
98 - Added usermode +R (only registered clients may send a private message)
99 - Added channelmode +R (only registered clients may join that channel)
100 - Various services shortcuts have been added (/NS, /CS, /NICKSERV, /CHANSERV, etc.)
101 - Added services{} block to ircd.conf
102 - Added services_name directive to general{} block
103 - Added GLOBOPS mainly for services compatibility, but can be used by operators, too
104 o) Removed RKLINE and RXLINE commands. Regular expression based bans should
105 only be added via ircd.conf
106 o) Added 'globops', 'restart', 'dline', 'undline' and 'module' operator
107 privilege flags. Read doc/example.conf for further explanation of what
108 these flags control
109 o) Removed Idle-time klines
110 o) Cleaned up modules API. Old modules won't work anymore
111 o) Removed general::burst_away configuration directive. AWAY bursts are now
112 controlled via connect::flags explicitly
113 o) Introduced new logging subsystem including log rotation based on
114 file sizes. Log timestamp format is ISO8601 now
115 o) Added support for remote D-lines
116 o) Added usermode +H which is basically a replacement for the hidden_admin and
117 hidden_oper operator flags. With usermode +H, irc operator status can now
118 be hidden even on remote servers
119 o) Added CIDR support for operator{} blocks
120 o) Removed the servlink program. ircd-hybrid can now make use of
121 SSL/TLS for inter-server communication.
122 NOTE: compressed server links are of course still available, but a SSL/TLS
123 connection is required, as compression is now handled via OpenSSL
124 o) Removed 'ssl_server_protocol' configuration directive and
125 added 'ssl_client_method' and 'ssl_server_method' instead.
126 Both of these options can now be changed at runtime
127 o) Oper login IDs are no longer limited to NICKLEN*2
128 o) Removed channel::burst_topicwho configuration option. Topicsetters are
129 now sent by default
130 o) "STATS Y|y" now reports CIDR limits as well
131 o) Added m_webirc.c to contrib/
132 o) Overall code cleanup and speed improvements
