2 o) Fixed possible TBURST desynchronization with services
3 o) Fixed TBURST sending server's name to clients if it's a hidden server
5 -- ircd-hybrid-8.0.0 Release Notes
6 o) Fixed an off-by-one with spoofs. Spoofs are now also checked for

26 o) Fixed bug that could lead to topic desynchronization
27 o) Removed serverhide::disable_hidden configuration option
28 o) Dropped ircd-hybrid-6 GLINE compatibility mode
29 o) Removed use_invex, use_except and use_knock configuration options.
30 These features are now enabled by default
33 -- ircd-hybrid-8beta2 Release Notes
34 o) channel::disable_fake_channels now also disables ascii 29 (mIRC italic)
35 when set to yes
36 o) Added channel::max_chans_per_oper configuration directive. The old way
37 was to let operators join three times the amount of max_chans_per_user
39 with the new MODULE command which can be fed with the LOAD, UNLOAD, RELOAD
40 and LIST parameters.
41 MODRESTART has been entirely removed. Use "MODULE RELOAD *" to reload
42 all modules
43 o) Added back server notice when a client tries to obtain a reserved nick name
44 o) Removed OMOTD module
45 o) Added 'set' to operator privilege flags. Gives access to the "SET" command
46 o) Improved TS6 support
47 o) Channel keys/passwords are now case sensitive
50 -- ircd-hybrid-8beta1 Release Notes
51 o) Implemented full services support, including but not limited to the
52 following changes:
53 - Added SVSNICK, and SVSMODE command handlers
54 - Added service stamps to NICK/UID messages
55 - Added SVS to server capabilities (CAPAB). SVS capable servers can
56 deal with extended NICK/UID messages that contain service IDs/stamps.
57 - Changed rejected client notices to go to new usermode +j. These
58 previously used usermode +r.
59 - Added usermode +r (registered nick) and channelmode +r (registered channel)
60 - Added usermode +R (only registered clients may send a private message)
61 - Added channelmode +R (only registered clients may join that channel)
62 - Various services shortcuts have been added (/NS, /CS, /NICKSERV, /CHANSERV, etc.)
63 - Added services{} block to ircd.conf
64 - Added services_name directive to general{} block
65 - Added GLOBOPS mainly for services compatibility, but can be used by operators, too
66 o) Removed RKLINE and RXLINE commands. Regular expression based bans should
67 only be added via ircd.conf
68 o) Added 'globops', 'restart', 'dline', 'undline' and 'module' operator
69 privilege flags. Read doc/example.conf for further explanation of what
70 these flags control
71 o) Removed Idle-time klines
72 o) Cleaned up modules API. Old modules won't work anymore
73 o) Removed general::burst_away configuration directive. AWAY bursts are now
74 controlled via connect::flags explicitly
75 o) Introduced new logging subsystem including log rotation based on
76 file sizes. Log timestamp format is ISO8601 now
77 o) Added support for remote D-lines
78 o) Added usermode +H which is basically a replacement for the hidden_admin and
79 hidden_oper operator flags. With usermode +H, irc operator status can now
80 be hidden even on remote servers
81 o) Added CIDR support for operator{} blocks
82 o) Removed the servlink program. ircd-hybrid can now make use of
83 SSL/TLS for inter-server communication.
84 NOTE: compressed server links are of course still available, but a SSL/TLS
85 connection is required, as compression is now handled via OpenSSL
86 o) Removed 'ssl_server_protocol' configuration directive and
87 added 'ssl_client_method' and 'ssl_server_method' instead.
88 Both of these options can now be changed at runtime
89 o) Oper login IDs are no longer limited to NICKLEN*2
90 o) Removed channel::burst_topicwho configuration option. Topicsetters are
91 now sent by default
92 o) "STATS Y|y" now reports CIDR limits as well
93 o) Added m_webirc.c to contrib/
94 o) Overall code cleanup and speed improvements
