1 #######################################################################
2 Reminder for package maintainers of ircd-hybrid: ircd-hybrid now has
3 GnuTLS support as of version 8.2.13
4 #######################################################################
5
6 -- Noteworthy changes in version 8.2.17 (2016-04-21)
7 o) Fixed core on "REHASH CONF" with 'general::whowas_history_length'
8 set to 0
9 o) Fixed possible core on INVITE with 'channel::max_channels' set to 0
10
11
12 -- Noteworthy changes in version 8.2.16 (2016-03-20)
13 o) Added 'general::whowas_history_length' configuration option which
14 allows to define the maximum length of the WHOWAS nickname history
15 o) Services are now allowed to override 'general::min_nonwildcard',
16 and 'general::min_nonwildcard_simple' settings
17 o) Minor updates to help files
18
19
20 -- Noteworthy changes in version 8.2.15 (2016-02-24)
21 o) Added proper support for Raspbian/ARM. Gracias to Beave/2600.net
22 for providing a box for testing purposes.
23 o) Fixed an assert with empty user = "" directives in auth {} blocks
24 o) "STATS z" now shows allocated listeners
25 o) Fixed bug where 'can_flood' auth {} flags did not work on channels
26
27
28 -- Noteworthy changes in version 8.2.14 (2016-02-09)
29 o) Fixed server clustering
30 o) Major cleanups to the configuration subsystem
31 o) Improvements to libGeoIP support:
32 - Works now with IPv6 addresses

34 and 'libgeoip_ipv6_database_file' configuration directives to the
35 serverinfo {} block

37
38
39 -- Noteworthy changes in version 8.2.13 (2016-02-02)
40 o) Implemented support for GnuTLS. Currently ./configure's autodetection
41 intentionally prefers OpenSSL over GnuTLS, so OpenSSL detection needs
42 to be disabled explicitely by using the --disable-openssl switch.
43 o) Minimum supported GnuTLS version is 3.3.8 now
44 o) Minimum supported OpenSSL version is 1.0.1d now
45 o) Added support for remote REHASH: REHASH <server> <option>

48 o) Fixed minor memory leak with shared {} and cluster {} blocks
49
50
51 -- Noteworthy changes in version 8.2.12 (2016-01-05)
52 #######################################################################

54 to update all servers on the network to prevent possible channel
55 desynchronizations and nick name collision kills
56 #######################################################################
57 o) Added channel mode +T which forbids NOTICEs to be sent to a channel
58 o) Fixed minor SVSTAG memory leak
59 o) Fixed broken PART message blocking mechanism
60 o) ircd now makes use of up to 8 name servers that are specified in
61 /etc/resolv.conf

63 o) Fixed possible core on ident lookups if ircd is out of file descriptors
64 o) Far client exit notices (+F) now show IP addresses, too
65 o) Made idle time look nicer in "STATS v|p" by using a formatted time string
66 o) 'general::ts_warn_delta', and 'general::ts_max_delta' can be set to 0 now
67 o) Several code cleanups and optimizations. Improved documentation
68
69

83 would not have any effect
84 o) mkpasswd (tools): fixed broken bcrypt support on *BSD in conjunction
85 with the -s and -l switches. Dropped MD5, DES and Extended DES support.
86 o) Removed CHALLENGE in favor of ssl certificate fingerprint enabled
87 operator {} blocks
88 o) RSA keys with less than 2048 bits are no longer supported; same applies
89 to the DH param file

91 of flags see doc/reference.conf
92
93
94 -- Noteworthy changes in version 8.2.9 (2015-09-13)
95 ########################################################################
96 o) IMPORTANT: database files and links.txt are now stored in /var/lib
97 instead of /etc, so make sure to move your k/d/x-line database files
98 to the new path before (re)starting the ircd
99 ########################################################################
100 o) IMPORTANT: the splitmode logic has been removed along with the
101 following channel {} block configuration directives:
102 'default_split_user_count', 'default_split_server_count',
103 'no_create_on_split', 'no_join_on_split'
104 ########################################################################

117 See doc/reference.conf for more information.
118 o) Added 'resv', and 'unresv' irc-operator flags. Previously, all
119 irc-operators were allowed to RESV and UNRESV, regardless of configured
120 privileges.
121 o) Added 'close' to irc-operator flags
122 o) ircd is using ISO 8601 date and time notation in most places now
123
124

127 have at least 'general::min_nonwildcard' non-wildcard characters in it
128 o) Configuration related server notices are now sent to admins only as
129 they potentially could leak passwords and other sensitive data to irc
130 operators that don't have administrator privileges

132 with cluster {} and/or shared {} blocks is now the recommended
133 way to add global user@host mask based server bans

516 sending messages to a channel

682 following changes:
683 - Added SVSNICK, and SVSMODE command handlers
684 - Added service stamps to NICK/UID messages
685 - Added SVS to server capabilities (CAPAB). SVS capable servers can
686 deal with extended NICK/UID messages that contain service IDs/stamps.
687 - Changed rejected client notices to go to new usermode +j. These
688 previously used usermode +r.
689 - Added usermode +r (registered nick) and channelmode +r (registered channel)
690 - Added usermode +R (only registered clients may send a private message)
691 - Added channelmode +R (only registered clients may join that channel)
692 - Various services shortcuts have been added (/NS, /CS, /NICKSERV, /CHANSERV, etc.)

694 - Added services_name directive to general {} block
695 - Added GLOBOPS mainly for services compatibility, but can be used by operators, too

699 privilege flags. Read doc/reference.conf for further explanation of what
700 these flags control
701 o) Removed Idle-time klines
702 o) Cleaned up modules API. Old modules won't work anymore
703 o) Removed 'general::burst_away' configuration directive. AWAY bursts are now

706 file sizes. Log timestamp format is ISO8601 now
707 o) Added support for remote D-lines
708 o) Added usermode +H which is basically a replacement for the hidden_admin and
709 hidden_oper operator flags. With usermode +H, irc operator status can now
710 be hidden even on remote servers
711 o) Added CIDR support for operator {} blocks
712 o) Removed the servlink program. ircd-hybrid can now make use of
713 SSL/TLS for inter-server communication.
714 NOTE: compressed server links are of course still available, but a SSL/TLS
715 connection is required, as compression is now handled via OpenSSL
716 o) Removed 'ssl_server_protocol' configuration directive and
717 added 'ssl_client_method' and 'ssl_server_method' instead.
718 Both of these options can now be changed at runtime
719 o) Oper login IDs are no longer limited to NICKLEN*2
720 o) Removed 'channel::burst_topicwho' configuration option. This feature is now
721 enabled by default
