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

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