106 o) channel::disable_fake_channels now also disables ascii 29 (mIRC italic)
107 when set to yes
108 o) Added channel::max_chans_per_oper configuration directive. The old way
109 was to let operators join three times the amount of max_chans_per_user
111 with the new MODULE command which can be fed with the LOAD, UNLOAD, RELOAD
112 and LIST parameters.
113 MODRESTART has been entirely removed. Use "MODULE RELOAD *" to reload
114 all modules
115 o) Added back server notice when a client tries to obtain a reserved nick name
116 o) Removed OMOTD module
117 o) Added 'set' to operator privilege flags. Gives access to the "SET" command

119 o) Channel keys/passwords are now case sensitive
122 -- ircd-hybrid-8beta1 Release Notes
123 o) Implemented full services support, including but not limited to the
124 following changes:
125 - Added SVSNICK, and SVSMODE command handlers
126 - Added service stamps to NICK/UID messages
127 - Added SVS to server capabilities (CAPAB). SVS capable servers can
128 deal with extended NICK/UID messages that contain service IDs/stamps.
129 - Changed rejected client notices to go to new usermode +j. These
130 previously used usermode +r.
131 - Added usermode +r (registered nick) and channelmode +r (registered channel)
132 - Added usermode +R (only registered clients may send a private message)
133 - Added channelmode +R (only registered clients may join that channel)
134 - Various services shortcuts have been added (/NS, /CS, /NICKSERV, /CHANSERV, etc.)
135 - Added services{} block to ircd.conf
136 - Added services_name directive to general{} block
137 - Added GLOBOPS mainly for services compatibility, but can be used by operators, too
138 o) Removed RKLINE and RXLINE commands. Regular expression based bans should
139 only be added via ircd.conf
140 o) Added 'globops', 'restart', 'dline', 'undline' and 'module' operator
141 privilege flags. Read doc/reference.conf for further explanation of what
142 these flags control
143 o) Removed Idle-time klines
144 o) Cleaned up modules API. Old modules won't work anymore
145 o) Removed general::burst_away configuration directive. AWAY bursts are now
146 controlled via connect::flags explicitly
147 o) Introduced new logging subsystem including log rotation based on
148 file sizes. Log timestamp format is ISO8601 now
149 o) Added support for remote D-lines
150 o) Added usermode +H which is basically a replacement for the hidden_admin and
151 hidden_oper operator flags. With usermode +H, irc operator status can now
152 be hidden even on remote servers
153 o) Added CIDR support for operator{} blocks
154 o) Removed the servlink program. ircd-hybrid can now make use of
155 SSL/TLS for inter-server communication.
156 NOTE: compressed server links are of course still available, but a SSL/TLS
157 connection is required, as compression is now handled via OpenSSL
158 o) Removed 'ssl_server_protocol' configuration directive and
159 added 'ssl_client_method' and 'ssl_server_method' instead.
160 Both of these options can now be changed at runtime
161 o) Oper login IDs are no longer limited to NICKLEN*2
162 o) Removed channel::burst_topicwho configuration option. Topicsetters are
163 now sent by default
164 o) "STATS Y|y" now reports CIDR limits as well
165 o) Added m_webirc.c to contrib/
166 o) Overall code cleanup and speed improvements
