# Line 1  Line 1 
1    -- Noteworthy changes in version 8.2.9 (2015-09-13)
2    ########################################################################
3    o) IMPORTANT: database files and links.txt are now stored in /var/lib
4       instead of /etc, so make sure to move your k/d/x-line database files
5       to the new path before (re)starting the ircd
6    ########################################################################
7    o) IMPORTANT: the splitmode logic has been removed along with the
8       following channel {} block configuration directives:
9       'default_split_user_count', 'default_split_server_count',
10       'no_create_on_split', 'no_join_on_split'
11    ########################################################################
12    o) Added 'xline_exempt' to auth {} block flags
13    o) serverinfo::sid is now optional. A unique SID is now automatically
14       generated based on the server's name and description
15    o) Various fixes to the mkpasswd tool
16    o) If supported by the compiler, ircd-hybrid now compiles with
17       '-fstack-protector-strong' instead of '-fstack-protector'
18    o) Services can now add RESVs (SQLINEs) that have wildcards in it
19    o) Channel name RESVs are now sanity checked for too broad masks
20    o) class::connectfreq now works properly with values lower than 300 seconds
21    o) Implemented IRCv3.1 account-notify extension
22    o) The general::oper_pass_resv configuration directive has been deprecated
23       in favor of the new 'join:resv', and 'nick:resv' irc-operator flags.
24       See doc/reference.conf for more information.
25    o) Added 'resv', and 'unresv' irc-operator flags. Previously, all
26       irc-operators were allowed to RESV and UNRESV, regardless of configured
27       privileges.
28    o) Added 'close' to irc-operator flags
29    o) ircd is using ISO 8601 date and time notation in most places now

34       have at least general::min_nonwildcard non-wildcard characters in it
35    o) Configuration related server notices are now sent to admins only as
36       they potentially could leak passwords and other sensitive data to irc
37       operators that don't have administrator privileges
38    o) The GLINE/GUNGLINE commands have been removed. KLINE in conjunction
39       with cluster {} and/or shared {} blocks is now the recommended
40       way to add global user@host mask based server bans
41    o) Added dline_min_cidr, dline_min_cidr6, kline_min_cidr, and kline_min_cidr6
42       configuration options to the general {} block

46    o) The general::havent_read_conf configuration directive has been removed
