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

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