1 -- ircd-hybrid-8.1.0 Release Notes
2 o) Minor code cleanups/performance improvements

5 -- ircd-hybrid-8.1.0rc1 Release Notes
6 o) Fixed broken spoofs
7
8
9 -- ircd-hybrid-8.1.0beta5 Release Notes
10 o) Removed 'remote', and 'global_kill' oper flags, and added 'connect',
11 'squit', and 'kill' flags for better fine-tuning instead. Whether or
12 not a specific action is allowed on a remote server can be controlled
13 by appending the ':remote' flag. For example: 'kill' allows only local
14 clients to be killed, whereas 'kill:remote' allows to issue a KILL for
15 remote clients
16 o) Added 'locops' and 'wallops' to irc-operator flags
17 o) Improve/cleanup HELP system
18
19
20 -- ircd-hybrid-8.1.0beta4 Release Notes
21 o) Implemented channel mode +M. Clients that haven't identified their
22 name with NickServ may not speak in a channel that has this mode set
23 o) Fixed weird idletimes shown in /trace

28 -- ircd-hybrid-8.1.0beta3 Release Notes
29 o) PCRE support has been dropped
30 o) "STATS o" now shows how many times an oper{} block has been used.

34 that has this mode set
35 o) Fixed bug where bans were not checked against non-channel members when
36 sending messages to a channel

206 o) Implemented full services support, including but not limited to the
207 following changes:
208 - Added SVSNICK, and SVSMODE command handlers
209 - Added service stamps to NICK/UID messages
210 - Added SVS to server capabilities (CAPAB). SVS capable servers can
211 deal with extended NICK/UID messages that contain service IDs/stamps.
212 - Changed rejected client notices to go to new usermode +j. These
213 previously used usermode +r.
214 - Added usermode +r (registered nick) and channelmode +r (registered channel)
215 - Added usermode +R (only registered clients may send a private message)
216 - Added channelmode +R (only registered clients may join that channel)
217 - Various services shortcuts have been added (/NS, /CS, /NICKSERV, /CHANSERV, etc.)

219 - Added services_name directive to general{} block
220 - Added GLOBOPS mainly for services compatibility, but can be used by operators, too
221 o) Removed RKLINE and RXLINE commands. Regular expression based bans should
222 only be added via ircd.conf
223 o) Added 'globops', 'restart', 'dline', 'undline' and 'module' operator
224 privilege flags. Read doc/reference.conf for further explanation of what
225 these flags control
226 o) Removed Idle-time klines
227 o) Cleaned up modules API. Old modules won't work anymore
228 o) Removed general::burst_away configuration directive. AWAY bursts are now
229 controlled via connect::flags explicitly
230 o) Introduced new logging subsystem including log rotation based on
231 file sizes. Log timestamp format is ISO8601 now
232 o) Added support for remote D-lines
233 o) Added usermode +H which is basically a replacement for the hidden_admin and
234 hidden_oper operator flags. With usermode +H, irc operator status can now
235 be hidden even on remote servers
236 o) Added CIDR support for operator{} blocks
237 o) Removed the servlink program. ircd-hybrid can now make use of
238 SSL/TLS for inter-server communication.
239 NOTE: compressed server links are of course still available, but a SSL/TLS
240 connection is required, as compression is now handled via OpenSSL
241 o) Removed 'ssl_server_protocol' configuration directive and
242 added 'ssl_client_method' and 'ssl_server_method' instead.
243 Both of these options can now be changed at runtime
244 o) Oper login IDs are no longer limited to NICKLEN*2
245 o) Removed channel::burst_topicwho configuration option. Topicsetters are
246 now sent by default
