1 -- Noteworthy changes in version 8.2.9 (2015-??-??)
2 ########################################################################
3 o) IMPORTANT: database files and links.txt are now stored in /var/lib
4 instead of /etc, so make sure to move your k/d/x-line database files
5 to the new path before (re)starting the ircd
6 ########################################################################
7 o) IMPORTANT: the splitmode logic has been removed along with the
8 following channel {} block configuration directives:
9 'default_split_user_count', 'default_split_server_count',
10 'no_create_on_split', 'no_join_on_split'
11 ########################################################################
12 o) Added 'xline_exempt' to auth {} block flags
13 o) serverinfo::sid is now optional. A unique SID is now automatically
14 generated based on the server's name and description
15 o) Various fixes to the mkpasswd tool
16 o) If supported by the compiler, ircd-hybrid now compiles with
17 '-fstack-protector-strong' instead of '-fstack-protector'
18 o) Services can now add SQLINEs/RESVs that have wildcards in it
19 o) Channel name RESVs are now sanity checked for too broad masks
20 o) class::connectfreq now works properly with values lower than 300 seconds

26 irc-operator were allowed to RESV and UNRESV, regardless of configured

34 they potentially could leak passwords and other sensitive data to irc
35 operators that don't have administrator privileges
36 o) The GLINE/GUNGLINE commands have been removed. KLINE in conjunction
37 with cluster {} and/or shared {} blocks is now the recommended

583 o) Implemented full services support, including but not limited to the
584 following changes:
585 - Added SVSNICK, and SVSMODE command handlers
586 - Added service stamps to NICK/UID messages
587 - Added SVS to server capabilities (CAPAB). SVS capable servers can
588 deal with extended NICK/UID messages that contain service IDs/stamps.
589 - Changed rejected client notices to go to new usermode +j. These
590 previously used usermode +r.
591 - Added usermode +r (registered nick) and channelmode +r (registered channel)
592 - Added usermode +R (only registered clients may send a private message)
593 - Added channelmode +R (only registered clients may join that channel)
594 - Various services shortcuts have been added (/NS, /CS, /NICKSERV, /CHANSERV, etc.)
595 - Added services {} block to ircd.conf
596 - Added services_name directive to general {} block
597 - Added GLOBOPS mainly for services compatibility, but can be used by operators, too
598 o) Removed RKLINE and RXLINE commands. Regular expression based bans should
599 only be added via ircd.conf
600 o) Added 'globops', 'restart', 'dline', 'undline' and 'module' operator
601 privilege flags. Read doc/reference.conf for further explanation of what
602 these flags control
603 o) Removed Idle-time klines
604 o) Cleaned up modules API. Old modules won't work anymore
605 o) Removed general::burst_away configuration directive. AWAY bursts are now
606 controlled via connect::flags explicitly
607 o) Introduced new logging subsystem including log rotation based on
608 file sizes. Log timestamp format is ISO8601 now
609 o) Added support for remote D-lines
610 o) Added usermode +H which is basically a replacement for the hidden_admin and
611 hidden_oper operator flags. With usermode +H, irc operator status can now
612 be hidden even on remote servers
613 o) Added CIDR support for operator {} blocks
614 o) Removed the servlink program. ircd-hybrid can now make use of
615 SSL/TLS for inter-server communication.
616 NOTE: compressed server links are of course still available, but a SSL/TLS
617 connection is required, as compression is now handled via OpenSSL
618 o) Removed 'ssl_server_protocol' configuration directive and
619 added 'ssl_client_method' and 'ssl_server_method' instead.
620 Both of these options can now be changed at runtime
621 o) Oper login IDs are no longer limited to NICKLEN*2
622 o) Removed channel::burst_topicwho configuration option. Topicsetters are
623 now sent by default
624 o) "STATS Y|y" now reports CIDR limits as well

626 o) Overall code cleanup and speed improvements
