113 o) channel::disable_fake_channels now also disables ascii 29 (mIRC italic)
114 when set to yes
115 o) Added channel::max_chans_per_oper configuration directive. The old way
116 was to let operators join three times the amount of max_chans_per_user
118 with the new MODULE command which can be fed with the LOAD, UNLOAD, RELOAD
119 and LIST parameters.
120 MODRESTART has been entirely removed. Use "MODULE RELOAD *" to reload

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