1 -- Noteworthy changes in version 8.2.9 (2015-09-13)
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 RESVs (SQLINEs) 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
21 o) Implemented IRCv3.1 account-notify extension
22 o) The general::oper_pass_resv configuration directive has been deprecated
23 in favor of the new 'join:resv', and 'nick:resv' irc-operator flags.
24 See doc/reference.conf for more information.
25 o) Added 'resv', and 'unresv' irc-operator flags. Previously, all
26 irc-operators were allowed to RESV and UNRESV, regardless of configured

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

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

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

628 o) Overall code cleanup and speed improvements
