- The 'serverinfo::vhost' and 'serverinfo:vhost6' configuration directives have been deprecated. If you need to bind() a specific address you can specify one in the connect {} block
- The 'connect::vhost' configuration directive has been renamed to 'connect::bind'

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
11 redundant as it had the same functionality as 'class::number_per_ip'
12 o) Adding RESVs with wildcards no longer requires administrator privileges
13 o) The 'general::ignore_bogus_ts' configuration option has been deprecated
14 o) TLSv1.1 and TLSv1.0 are no longer supported and have been disabled in
15 the openssl and gnutls module
16 o) Minimum supported OpenSSL version is 1.0.1f now
17 o) Minimum supported GnuTLS version is 3.5.8 now
18 o) The 'serverinfo::vhost' and 'serverinfo:vhost6' configuration directives have
19 been deprecated. If you need to bind() a specific address you can specify one
20 in the connect {} block
21 o) The 'connect::vhost' configuration directive has been renamed to 'connect::bind'

24 -- Noteworthy changes in version 8.2.24 (2018-04-05)
25 o) Added "STATS s" to show configured pseudo {} blocks
26 o) Implemented channel mode 'N' which prevents users from changing their
27 nick while in a channel with that mode set
28 o) Services clients are now shown with 'is a Network Service' in "WHOIS"
29
30
31 -- Noteworthy changes in version 8.2.23 (2018-03-26)
32 o) irc-operators are now able to see a user's resolved hostname in /whowas,
33 and /whois even if the user has a fakehost/vhost

45 o) Implemented channel mode 'L'. Channels with that mode set can make use of an
46 extended ban list size specified with the new 'channel::max_bans_large'
47 configuraton option. This mode can be set only by irc-operators or servers.
48 o) Implemented channel mode 'u' which hides bmask (+b/+e/+I) lists and mode changes
49 to non-chanops everywhere
50 o) Fixed an issue with "TRACE" where remote servers would reply with RPL_TRACEUSER
51 numerics containing UIDs

58 along with the "SET FLOODTIME" command. These allow to fine-tune the
59 message throttling better
60 o) Fixed an issue with /invite not showing the list of channels the
61 sender is invited to
62
63

123 o) Implemented support for GnuTLS. Currently ./configure's autodetection
124 intentionally prefers OpenSSL over GnuTLS, so OpenSSL detection needs
125 to be disabled explicitely by using the --disable-openssl switch.
126 o) Minimum supported GnuTLS version is 3.3.8 now
127 o) Minimum supported OpenSSL version is 1.0.1d now

793 be hidden even on remote servers

795 o) Removed the servlink program. ircd-hybrid can now make use of
796 SSL/TLS for inter-server communication.
797 NOTE: compressed server links are of course still available, but a SSL/TLS
798 connection is required, as compression is now handled via OpenSSL
799 o) Removed 'ssl_server_protocol' configuration directive and
800 added 'ssl_client_method' and 'ssl_server_method' instead.
801 Both of these options can now be changed at runtime
802 o) Oper login IDs are no longer limited to NICKLEN*2
