- Move ircd-hybrid-7.3 to ircd-hybrid/branches/7.3.x

1 -- ircd-hybrid-7.3.2 Release Notes
2 o) Added new m_webirc.c to contrib/
3 o) Added need_tls to auth::flags. Rejects clients that are not connected
4 via TLS/SSL
5 o) Fixed compile warning with gcc 4.6
6 o) Minor fixes to m_cap module
7 o) Added CIDR support for operator{} blocks
10 -- ircd-hybrid-7.3.1 Release Notes
11 o) Fixed ERR_ACCEPTEXIST numeric string. Now gives proper
12 nick!user@host mask output
13 o) Update RPL_ISUPPORT. CHANMODES now reflects new +OS channelmodes
14 o) Fixed random core triggered by exiting servers
15 o) Fixed invalid user and invisible count in /lusers which sometimes can
16 occur if a server sends redundant usermodes within a NICK message
19 -- ircd-hybrid-7.3.0 Release Notes
20 o) Added Bulgarian language file provided by Borislav Borisov
21 o) Server hostmasking has been removed due to TS6 requirements
22 o) Fixed broken IPv6 detection
23 o) Minor code optimizations. Reduced memory consumption
24 o) User IDs are now shown in client connection notices
25 o) Increased maximum temporary kline time to 360 days
26 o) Added back STATS/TRACE/MOTD/ADMIN request notices. Removed
27 spy_*_notice modules accordingly.
28 o) Channelmode +O; channel can be joined by ircops only.
29 o) Channelmode +S; only clients with a secure connection (ssl/tls)
30 can join this channel.
33 -- ircd-hybrid-7.3-rc1 Release Notes
34 o) Major 64-bit cleanups and portability fixes.
35 o) Fixed bug where unregistered clients were not able to complete registration
36 process with /quote PONG <ping_cookie> in case the client was assigned a
37 zero value ping-cookie. This may only happen with general::ping_cookie
38 being enabled.
39 o) "STATS z" now shows the actual amount of memory consumption being
40 used by channel bans/excepts/invites.
41 o) Fixed archaic bug where bursting servers with missconfigured NICKLEN were
42 able to desync the network's nickname database.
43 o) The PCRE library has been removed from the ircd sources. ./configure will
44 now automatically detect an already installed version of the PCRE library.
45 o) Various resolver improvements and fixes
46 o) Implemented GUNGLINE (global ungline)
47 o) Completely rewrote build system. We're now using automake and libtool
48 o) Added support for SHA-256/512 encrypted passwords to mkpasswd. Whether
49 passwords hashed using these algorithms will work depends on the system's
50 crypt() implementation. For example, SHA-256/512 is available in glibc since
51 version 2.7.
52 o) Added ssl_server_protocol configuration option to servinfo{}.
53 Valid flags are 'sslv3' and 'tlsv1'
54 o) Added new 'server' option to listener::flags. Listener with that flag
55 set may only accept server connections.
56 o) Fixed occasional core when placing RESVs on channel names
57 o) Fixed topic desynchronization which sometimes may
58 happen during netbursts
59 o) WATCH support implemented. Known from other irc-daemons, such
60 as Dreamforge and Bahamut. The general::max_watch configuration directive
61 has been added in order to allow run-time configuration of how many
62 watch entries a single client may have on its watchlist.
63 o) Fixed bug which would cause invalid invisible counts on oper-up in case
64 operator::umodes and/or general::oper_umodes contains 'invisible'
65 o) Removed broken LazyLinks
66 o) Removed --disable-gline-voting configure option
67 o) Minor code optimizations and cleanups
68 o) ACCEPT now supports nick!user@host masks
69 o) Unregistered clients are no longer allowed to request the server's motd
70 o) general::dot_in_ip6_addr configuration option is obsolete and no longer exists
71 o) Dropped support for old style 'operflag = yes|no;' format
74 -- ircd-hybrid-7.2.3 Release Notes
75 o) Added ircd-italian.lang language file
76 o) Added -full to etrace
77 o) Added +C for opers
78 o) Fixed core in temp channel resv
79 o) Fixed CHALLENGE to work with user=IP
80 o) Misc fixes to TESTMASK and TESTLINE
81 o) Added support for nick masks to TESTMASK
82 o) Fixed /modlist to show up whether or not a module is resident
83 o) Fixed command line arguments handling to allow more than one switch
84 o) Fixed numeric delivery for mixed TS5 target on the other side of a TS6 server.
87 -- ircd-hybrid-7.2.2 Release Notes
88 o) Added channel::disable_fake_channels config directive
89 o) Fixed broken FORCEJOIN (contrib)
90 o) Added missing documentation for connect::vhost
91 o) Fixed problem with G-Line voting
92 o) Fixed "STATS ?" so it doesn't report negative traffic statistics
93 o) Fixed core in m_mkpasswd.c (contrib)
94 o) Reduced memory usage for channel members
95 o) Added general::stats_e_disabled which simply disables "STATS e"
96 for other operators and administrators
97 o) Ignore signal SIGXFSZ to prevent the daemon from dying on missconfigured
98 file size limits
99 o) Slight optimizations to the block allocator
100 o) Fixed harmless bug that could result in incorrect bytes sent statistics
101 in "STATS t"
102 o) "STATS y|Y" now shows whether a class is active or disabled
103 o) Added ircd-brazilian_pt.lang language file
104 o) Misc. ACCEPT fixes. E.g. don't remove an accept record if a client is
105 changing between equivalent nicknames like 'nick' and 'NiCk'.
106 o) Minor resolv.conf parser fixes. Added missing support for ';' comments
107 o) Fixed core on MODRESTART
