1 #######################################################################
2 Reminder for package maintainers of ircd-hybrid: ircd-hybrid now has
3 GnuTLS support as of version 8.2.13
4 #######################################################################
5
6
7 -- Noteworthy changes in version 8.2.25 (2018-??-??)
8 o) The 'class::number_per_ip', 'class::max_local' and 'class::max_global'
9 configuration directives have been replaced with just 'class::number_per_ip_local'
10 and 'class::number_per_ip_global'. The 'class::max_local' basically was redundant
11 as it had the same functionality as 'class::number_per_ip'
12
13
14 -- Noteworthy changes in version 8.2.24 (2018-04-05)
15 o) Added "STATS s" to show configured pseudo {} blocks
16 o) Implemented channel mode 'N' which prevents users from changing their
17 nick while in a channel with that mode set
18 o) Services clients are now shown with 'is a Network Service' in "WHOIS"
19
20
21 -- Noteworthy changes in version 8.2.23 (2018-03-26)
22 o) irc-operators are now able to see a user's resolved hostname in /whowas,
23 and /whois even if the user has a fakehost/vhost
24 o) RPL_WELCOME now does use the rfc2812 style nick!user@host format
25 o) Removed rudimentary libgeoip support
26 o) Added --enable-efence switch to allow easy linking with the
27 electric fence memory debugger library
28 o) "JOIN 0" is no longer supported
29 o) Fixed bug where ircd would not remove RPL_WHOISOPERATOR based svstags
30 when deoppering
31 o) Fixed 'unknown closes' statistic in "STATS t" showing invalid values sometimes
32
33
34 -- Noteworthy changes in version 8.2.22 (2017-03-26)
35 o) Implemented channel mode 'L'. Channels with that mode set can make use of an
36 extended ban list size specified with the new 'channel::max_bans_large'
37 configuraton option. This mode can be set only by irc-operators or servers.
38 o) Implemented channel mode 'u' which hides bmask (+b/+e/+I) lists and mode changes
39 to non-chanops everywhere
40 o) Fixed an issue with "TRACE" where remote servers would reply with RPL_TRACEUSER
41 numerics containing UIDs
42 o) "STATS z" now shows simple memory stats of servers linked to the network
43 o) Added support for remote "ETRACE"
44
45
46 -- Noteworthy changes in version 8.2.21 (2016-11-27)
47 o) The 'general::default_floodtime' configuration option has been added
48 along with the "SET FLOODTIME" command. These allow to fine-tune the
49 message throttling better
50 o) Fixed an issue with /invite not showing the list of channels the
51 sender is invited to
52
53
54 -- Noteworthy changes in version 8.2.20 (2016-11-05)

59 the 'channel::invite_expire_time' configuration directive
60 o) /whois notices to operators have been re-added. User mode +y is required
61 to see them
62 o) The maximum line length for motd files has been increased to 320 bytes
63 to support multibyte encodings better
64
65
66 -- Noteworthy changes in version 8.2.19 (2016-08-21)
67 o) Fixed a possible server name leak in "WHO" with server hiding enabled
68 o) "WHO" now allows opers to search by IP address
69 o) Admins no longer can see IP addresses in "STATS P" with
70 'serverhide::hide_server_ips' enabled
71 o) User mode 'n' now shows nick name changes from remote clients, too

83
84
85 -- Noteworthy changes in version 8.2.16 (2016-03-20)
86 o) Added 'general::whowas_history_length' configuration option which
87 allows to define the maximum length of the WHOWAS nickname history
88 o) Services are now allowed to override 'general::min_nonwildcard',
89 and 'general::min_nonwildcard_simple' settings
90 o) Minor updates to help files
91
92
93 -- Noteworthy changes in version 8.2.15 (2016-02-24)
94 o) Added proper support for Raspbian/ARM. Gracias to Beave/2600.net
95 for providing a box for testing purposes.

100
101 -- Noteworthy changes in version 8.2.14 (2016-02-09)
102 o) Fixed server clustering

110
111
112 -- Noteworthy changes in version 8.2.13 (2016-02-02)
113 o) Implemented support for GnuTLS. Currently ./configure's autodetection
114 intentionally prefers OpenSSL over GnuTLS, so OpenSSL detection needs
115 to be disabled explicitely by using the --disable-openssl switch.
116 o) Minimum supported GnuTLS version is 3.3.8 now
117 o) Minimum supported OpenSSL version is 1.0.1d now

155 o) Fixed bug where changing 'serverhide::flatten_links_delay' on runtime
156 would not have any effect
157 o) mkpasswd (tools): fixed broken bcrypt support on *BSD in conjunction
158 with the -s and -l switches. Dropped MD5, DES and Extended DES support.
159 o) Removed CHALLENGE in favor of ssl certificate fingerprint enabled
160 operator {} blocks
161 o) RSA keys with less than 2048 bits are no longer supported; same applies

171 to the new path before (re)starting the ircd
172 ########################################################################
173 o) IMPORTANT: the splitmode logic has been removed along with the
174 following channel {} block configuration directives:
175 'default_split_user_count', 'default_split_server_count',

761 previously used usermode +r.
762 - Added usermode +r (registered nick) and channelmode +r (registered channel)

783 be hidden even on remote servers
784 o) Added CIDR support for operator {} blocks
785 o) Removed the servlink program. ircd-hybrid can now make use of
786 SSL/TLS for inter-server communication.
787 NOTE: compressed server links are of course still available, but a SSL/TLS
788 connection is required, as compression is now handled via OpenSSL
789 o) Removed 'ssl_server_protocol' configuration directive and
790 added 'ssl_client_method' and 'ssl_server_method' instead.
791 Both of these options can now be changed at runtime
792 o) Oper login IDs are no longer limited to NICKLEN*2
