133 with the new MODULE command which can be fed with the LOAD, UNLOAD, RELOAD

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

203 DISCUSSION: There is a mailing list for discussion of hybrid issues,
204 including betas. To subscribe, use this link:
205 https://lists.ircd-hybrid.org/mailman/listinfo/hybrid
206 This is the proper place to discuss new features, bugs, etc. Posting here
207 is much more likely to get something done than ranting on #TZ.
