110 o) channel::disable_fake_channels now also disables ascii 29 (mIRC italic)
111 when set to yes
112 o) Added channel::max_chans_per_oper configuration directive. The old way
113 was to let operators join three times the amount of max_chans_per_user
115 with the new MODULE command which can be fed with the LOAD, UNLOAD, RELOAD
116 and LIST parameters.
117 MODRESTART has been entirely removed. Use "MODULE RELOAD *" to reload
118 all modules
119 o) Added back server notice when a client tries to obtain a reserved nick name
120 o) Removed OMOTD module
121 o) Added 'set' to operator privilege flags. Gives access to the "SET" command
122 o) Improved TS6 support
123 o) Channel keys/passwords are now case sensitive
126 -- ircd-hybrid-8beta1 Release Notes
127 o) Implemented full services support, including but not limited to the
128 following changes:
129 - Added SVSNICK, and SVSMODE command handlers
130 - Added service stamps to NICK/UID messages
131 - Added SVS to server capabilities (CAPAB). SVS capable servers can
132 deal with extended NICK/UID messages that contain service IDs/stamps.
133 - Changed rejected client notices to go to new usermode +j. These
134 previously used usermode +r.
135 - Added usermode +r (registered nick) and channelmode +r (registered channel)
136 - Added usermode +R (only registered clients may send a private message)
137 - Added channelmode +R (only registered clients may join that channel)
138 - Various services shortcuts have been added (/NS, /CS, /NICKSERV, /CHANSERV, etc.)
139 - Added services{} block to ircd.conf
140 - Added services_name directive to general{} block
141 - Added GLOBOPS mainly for services compatibility, but can be used by operators, too
142 o) Removed RKLINE and RXLINE commands. Regular expression based bans should
143 only be added via ircd.conf
144 o) Added 'globops', 'restart', 'dline', 'undline' and 'module' operator
145 privilege flags. Read doc/example.conf for further explanation of what
146 these flags control
147 o) Removed Idle-time klines
148 o) Cleaned up modules API. Old modules won't work anymore
149 o) Removed general::burst_away configuration directive. AWAY bursts are now
150 controlled via connect::flags explicitly
151 o) Introduced new logging subsystem including log rotation based on
152 file sizes. Log timestamp format is ISO8601 now
153 o) Added support for remote D-lines
154 o) Added usermode +H which is basically a replacement for the hidden_admin and
155 hidden_oper operator flags. With usermode +H, irc operator status can now
156 be hidden even on remote servers
157 o) Added CIDR support for operator{} blocks
158 o) Removed the servlink program. ircd-hybrid can now make use of
159 SSL/TLS for inter-server communication.
160 NOTE: compressed server links are of course still available, but a SSL/TLS
161 connection is required, as compression is now handled via OpenSSL
162 o) Removed 'ssl_server_protocol' configuration directive and
163 added 'ssl_client_method' and 'ssl_server_method' instead.
164 Both of these options can now be changed at runtime
165 o) Oper login IDs are no longer limited to NICKLEN*2
166 o) Removed channel::burst_topicwho configuration option. Topicsetters are
167 now sent by default
168 o) "STATS Y|y" now reports CIDR limits as well
169 o) Added m_webirc.c to contrib/
170 o) Overall code cleanup and speed improvements
