0012
2020-01-01
alex
0013
2020-01-01

2020-06-11
alex
ngIRCd 26~rc2 (2020-06-11)
0018
2020-06-11
alex
- Add AppStream metadata file (contrib/de.barton.ngircd.metainfo.xml).
0019
2020-05-31
alex
- Various bug fixes, see the ChangeLog. No new or changed functionality.

alex
ngIRCd 26~rc1 (2020-05-10)
0022
2020-05-09
alex
- Allow up to 512 characters per line in MOTD and help text files (but keep
0023
2020-05-09
alex
in mind that lines can't get that long, because they have to be prefixed
0024
2020-05-09
alex
before being sent to the client). But this allows for more fancy MOTDs :-)
0025
2020-05-09
alex
Closes #271.
0026
2020-05-09
alex
- Show the actually allowed channel types in the ISUPPORT(005) numeric which
0027
2020-05-09
alex
are configured by the "AllowedChannelTypes" configuration variable.
0028
2020-05-09
alex
Closes #273.
0029
2020-05-09
alex
- Handle commands in the read buffer before reading more data and don't wait
0030
2020-05-09
alex
for the network in this case: If there are more bytes in the read buffer
0031
2020-05-09
alex
already than a single valid IRC command can get long (513 bytes), wait for
0032
2020-05-09
alex
this/those command(s) to be handled first and don't try to read even more
0033
2020-05-09
alex
data from the network (which most probably would overflow the read buffer
0034
2020-05-09
alex
of this connection soon).
0035
2020-05-09
alex
- Log G-/K-Line changes only when not initiated by a server: this prevents
0036
2020-05-31
alex
the log from becoming spammed during "net bursts".
0037
2020-05-09
alex
- Update test suite to include SSL tests, including checking for reloading
0038
2020-05-09
alex
certificates during runtime.
0039
2020-05-09
alex
- Add support for GnuTLS certificate reload, which is quite handy when using
0040
2020-05-09
alex
Let's Encrypt, for example. Until now this was only supported when linked
0041
2020-05-09
alex
with OpenSSL. Thanks a lot, Hilko Bengen <bengen@hilluzination.de>!
0042
2020-04-20
alex
- Allow setting arbitrary channel modes in the configuration file by handling
0043
2020-04-20
alex
them like in MODE commands, and allow multiple "Modes =" lines per [Channel]
0044
2020-04-20
alex
section. Thanks to Michi <michi+ngircd@dataswamp.org>!
0045
2020-04-20
alex
Closes #55.
0046
2020-04-20
alex
- Add "FNC" (forced nick changes) to ISUPPORT(005) numeric. Most probably
0047
2020-04-20
alex
this doesn't make any difference to any client, but it seems correct.
0048
2020-04-20
alex
See <http://www.irc.org/tech_docs/005.html> for details.
0049
2020-04-20
alex
- Enhance handling of command line errors, and return with exit code 0 ("no
0050
2020-04-20
alex
error") when "--help" or "--version" is used (which resulted in exit code 1,
0051
2020-04-20
alex
"error" before). Exit with code 2 ("command line error") for all other
0052
2020-04-20
alex
invalid command line options, and show the error message itself on stderr
0053
2020-04-20
alex
(instead of stdout and exit code 1, "generic error", as before).
0054
2020-04-20
alex
This new behaviour is more in line with the GNU "coding standards",
0055
2020-04-20
alex
see <https://www.gnu.org/prep/standards/html_node/_002d_002dhelp.html>.
0056
2020-04-20
alex
- Add ./contrib/nglog.sh: This script parses the log output of ngircd(8),
0057
2020-04-20
alex
and colorizes the messages according to their log level. Example usage:
0058
2020-04-20
alex
ngircd -f $PWD/doc/sample-ngircd.conf -np | ./contrib/nglog.sh
0059
2020-04-20
alex
- Enlarge buffers of info texts to 128 bytes. This includes:
0060
2020-04-20
alex
- "Real name" of a client (4th filed of the USER command).
0061
2020-04-20
alex
- Server info text ("Info" configuration option).
0062
2020-04-20
alex
- Admin info texts and email address ("AdminInfo1", "AdminInfo2" and
0063
2020-04-20
alex
"AdminEmail" configuration options).
0064
2020-04-20
alex
- Network name ("Network" configuration option).
0065
2020-04-20
alex
The limit was 64 bytes before ...
0066
2020-04-20
alex
Closes #258.
0067
2020-04-20
alex
- Streamline handling of invalid and unset server name: Don't exit during
0068
2020-04-20
alex
runtime (REHASH command, HUP signal), because the server name can't be
0069
2020-04-20
alex
changed in this case anyway and the new invalid name will be ignored.
0070
2020-04-20
alex
- Slightly reorder startup steps, and enhance logging:
0071
2020-04-20
alex
- Show name of configuration file at the beginning of start up.
0072
2020-04-20
alex
- Add a message when ngIRCd is ready, including its host name.
0073
2020-04-20
alex
- Show name of configuration file on REHASH (SIGHUP), too.
0074
2020-04-20
alex
- Change level of "done message" to NOTICE, like "starting" & "ready".
0075
2020-04-20
alex
- Initialize IO functions before channels, connections, clients, ...
0076
2020-04-20
alex
- configure.ng: OpenSSL can depends on lz or latomic so use pkg-config to
0077
2020-04-20
alex
find those dependencies and fallback to existing mechanism.
0078
2020-04-20
alex
Closes #256.

0081
2011-01-01
alex
0082
2019-01-23
alex
- Implement new configuration option "MaxPenaltyTime", which configures the
0083
2019-01-23
alex
maximum penalty time increase in seconds, per penalty event. Set to -1 for
0084
2019-01-23
alex
no limit (the default), 0 to disable penalties altogether. ngIRCd doesn't
0085
2019-01-23
alex
use penalty increases higher than 2 seconds during normal operation, so
0086
2019-01-23
alex
values higher than 1 rarely make sense.
0087
2019-01-23
alex
Disabling (or reducing) penalties can greatly speed up "make check" runs
0088
2019-01-23
alex
for example, see below, but are mostly a debugging feature and normally
0089
2019-01-23
alex
not meant to be used on production systems!
0090
2019-01-23
alex
Some example timings running "make check" from my macOS workstation:
0091
2019-01-23
alex
- MaxPenaltyTime not set: 4:41,79s
0092
2019-01-23
alex
- "MaxPenaltyTime = 1": 3:14,71s
0093
2019-01-23
alex
- "MaxPenaltyTime = 0": 25,46s
0094
2019-01-23
alex
Closes #249 and #251.
0095
2019-01-23
alex
- Update Xcode project for latest Xcode version (10.0)
0096
2019-01-23
alex
- Allow a 5th parameter in WEBIRC. Thanks to "ItsOnlyBinary".
0097
2019-01-23
alex
Closes #247.

alex
ngIRCd 25~rc1 (2018-08-11)
0100
2018-03-25
alex
- Only send TOPIC updates to a channel when the topic actually changed:
0101
2020-05-31
alex
This prevents the channel from becoming flooded by unnecessary TOPIC update
0102
2018-03-25
alex
messages, that can happen when IRC services try to enforce a certain topic
0103
2018-03-25
alex
but which is already set (at least on the local server), for example.
0104
2018-03-25
alex
Therefore still forward it to all servers, but don't inform local clients
0105
2018-03-25
alex
(still update setter and timestamp information, though!).
0106
2018-03-25
alex
- Update Xcode project for latest Xcode version (9.2). This includes adding
0107
2018-03-25
alex
missing and deleting obsolete file references.
0108
2018-03-25
alex
- Handle user mode "C" ("Only users that share a channel are allowed to send
0109
2018-03-25
alex
messages") like user mode "b" ("block private messages and notices"): allow
0110
2018-03-25
alex
messages from servers, services, and IRC Operators, too. Change proposed by
0111
2018-03-25
alex
"wowaname" back in 2015 in #ngircd, thanks!
0112
2018-02-11
alex
- Allow IRC Ops and remote servers to KILL service clients: such clients
0113
2018-02-11
alex
behave like regular users, therefore IRC operators and servers should be
0114
2018-02-11
alex
able to KILL them: for example to resolve nick collisions.
0115
2018-02-11
alex
Closes #242.

2017-01-08
alex
ngIRCd 24~rc1 (2017-01-07)
0120
2016-12-10
alex
- Log privilege violations and failed OPER request with log level "error"
0121
2016-12-10
alex
and send it to the "&SERVER" channel, too.
0122
2016-12-10
alex
- Immediately shut down connection when receiving an "ERROR" command,
0123
2016-12-10
alex
don't wait for the peer to close the connection. This allows the daemon
0124
2016-12-10
alex
to forward the received "ERROR" message in the network, instead of the
0125
2016-12-10
alex
very generic "client closed connection" message.
0126
2016-12-10
alex
- Explicitly forbid remote servers to modify "x-lines" (G-LINES) when the
0127
2016-12-10
alex
"AllowRemoteOper" configuration option isn't set, even when the command
0128
2016-12-10
alex
seems to originate from the remote server itself: this prevents GLINE's
0129
2016-12-10
alex
to become set during server handshake in this case (what wouldn't be
0130
2016-12-10
alex
possible during regular runtime when a remote IRC Op sends the command)
0131
2016-12-10
alex
and what can't be undone by IRC Ops later on (because of the missing
0132
2016-12-10
alex
"AllowRemoteOper" option) ...
0133
2016-12-10
alex
- Update Xcode project for latest Xcode version (8.0), and fix "duplicate
0134
2016-12-10
alex
symbols" error messages when building (linking) the binary.
0135
2016-12-10
alex
- Add "Documentation" variables to systemd configuration files.
0136
2016-12-10
alex
- Make sure that SYSCONFDIR is always set, which can be handy when
0137
2016-12-10
alex
using source code linters when ./configure hasn't been run already.
0138
2016-12-10
alex
- Add the new "PAMServiceName" configuration option to specify the name
0139
2016-12-10
alex
used as PAM service name. This setting allows to run multiple ngIRCd
0140
2016-12-10
alex
instances with different PAM configurations for each instance.
0141
2016-12-10
alex
Thanks to Christian Aistleitner <christian@quelltextlich.at> for the
0142
2016-12-10
alex
patch, closes #226.
0143
2016-12-10
alex
- Add an ".editorconfig" file to the project.
0144
2016-12-10
alex
- Limit the number of message target, and suppress duplicates: This
0145
2016-12-10
alex
prevents an user from flooding the server using commands like this:
0146
2016-12-10
alex
"PRIVMSG nick1,nick1,nick1,...".
0147
2016-12-10
alex
Duplicate targets are suppressed silently (channels and clients).
0148
2016-12-10
alex
In addition, the maximum number of targets per PRIVMSG, NOTICE, ...
0149
2016-12-10
alex
command are limited to MAX_HNDL_TARGETS (25). If there are more, the
0150
2016-12-10
alex
daemon sends the new 407 (ERR_TOOMANYTARGETS_MSG) numeric, containing
0151
2016-12-10
alex
the first target that hasn't been handled any more. Closes #187.
0152
2016-12-10
alex
- Make contrib/platformtest.sh script more portable, and only show
0153
2016-12-10
alex
"runs=Y" when the test suite really has been passed successfully.

2015-09-06
alex
ngIRCd 23~rc1 (2015-09-06)
0158
2015-08-07
alex
- Use "NOTICE *" before registration instead of "NOTICE AUTH". "AUTH" is
0159
2015-08-07
alex
a valid nickname so sending notices to it is probably not a good idea.
0160
2015-08-07
alex
Use "*" as the target instead as done with numerics when the nick is not
0161
2015-09-06
alex
available. This mimics the behavior in Charybdis, IRCD-Hybrid, InspIRCd
0162
2015-08-07
alex
2.2, Plexus 4, etc. Closes #217.
0163
2015-08-07
alex
The "NoticeAuth" configuration variable (ngircd.conf) has been renamed
0164
2015-08-07
alex
to "NoticeBeforeRegistration" accordingly, but the old name is still
0165
2015-08-07
alex
supported for compatibility reasons.
0166
2015-08-07
alex
- Implement new channel mode "N" (regular users can't change their nick
0167
2015-08-07
alex
name while on this channel). Closes #214.
0168
2015-07-19
alex
- Keep track of who placed bans, invites, and excepts.
0169
2015-09-06
alex
Idea and implementation by LucentW, Thanks! Closes #203.
0170
2015-07-19
alex
- Implement numeric RPL_LISTSTART(321). lightIRC and other clients
0171
2015-07-19
alex
expecting RPL_LISTSTART should now behave correctly.
0172
2015-09-06
alex
Idea and implementation by LucentW, Thanks! Closes #207.
0173
2015-07-19
alex
- Streamline the effect of "MorePrivacy" option: Update documentation
0174
2015-07-19
alex
in ngircd.conf(5); don't hide channels for IRC Ops on LIST and don't
0175
2015-07-19
alex
hide IP addresses/hostnames on WHOIS when "MorePrivacy" is in effect.
0176
2015-07-19
alex
This closes #198.
0177
2015-07-19
alex
- IRC operators now can kick anyone when "OperCanMode" is set.
0178
2015-09-06
alex
Idea and implementation by LucentW, Thanks! Closes #202.
0179
2015-07-19
alex
- Implement user mode "I": Hide channels on WHOIS: this mode prevents
0180
2015-07-19
alex
ngIRCd from showing channels on WHOIS (IRC Operators can always see
0181
2015-07-19
alex
the channel list).
0182
2015-09-06
alex
Idea and implementation by LucentW, Thanks! Closes #197.
0183
2015-07-19
alex
- INVITE command: Implement ERR_USERNOTONSERV(504) numeric and make sure
0184
2015-07-19
alex
that the target user is on the same server when inviting other users
0185
2015-07-19
alex
to local ("&") channels.
0186
2015-07-19
alex
Idea by Cahata, thanks! Closes #183.
0187
2015-07-19
alex
- MODE command: Always report channel creation time. Up to now when
0188
2015-07-19
alex
receiving a MODE command, ngIRCd only reported the channel creation
0189
2015-07-19
alex
time to clients that were members of the channel. This patch reports
0190
2015-07-19
alex
the channel creation time to all clients, regardless if they are joined
0191
2015-07-19
alex
to that channel or not. At least ircd-seven behaves like this.
0192
2015-07-19

alex
- Update "CipherList" to not enable SSLv3 by default. Idea, initial patch,
0197
2015-04-06
alex
and testing by Christoph Biedl <ngircd.anoy@manchmal.in-ulm.de>.
0198
2015-04-06
alex
- Change ngIRCd test suite not to use DNS lookups: Different operating
0199
2015-04-06
alex
systems do behave quite differently when doing DNS lookups, for example
0200
2015-04-06
alex
"127.0.0.1" sometimes resolves to "localhost" and sometimes to
0201
2015-04-06
alex
"localhost.localdomain" (for example OpenBSD). And other OS resolve
0202
2015-04-06
alex
"localhost" to the real host name (for example Cygwin). So not using
0203
2015-04-06
alex
DNS at all makes the test site much more portable.

lists have been synced between servers while linking -- but obviously
0214
2014-09-22
alex
nobody noticed that except list have been missing ever since. Until now.
0215
2014-09-22
alex
Thanks to "j4jackj", who reported this issue in #ngircd.
0216
2014-09-22
alex
- Allow longer user names (up to 63 characters) for authentication.
0217
2014-09-04
alex
- Increase MAX_SERVERS from 16 to 64: There are installations out there
0218
2014-09-04
alex
that would like to configure more than 16 links per server, so increase
0219
2014-09-04
alex
this limit. Best would be to get rid of MAX_SERVERS altogether and make
0220
2014-09-04
alex
if fully dynamic, but start with this quick and dirty hack ...
0221
2014-09-04
alex
- Test suite/platformtest.sh: Detect when tests have been skipped.
0222
2014-09-04
alex
- Allow "DefaultUserModes" to set all possible modes, including modes only
0223
2014-09-04
alex
settable by IRC Operators.
0224
2014-10-07
alex
- Implement user mode "F": "relaxed flood protection". Clients with mode
0225
2014-10-07
alex
"F" set are allowed to rapidly send data to the daemon. This mode is only
0226
2014-10-07
alex
settable by IRC Operators and can cause problems in the network -- so be
0227
2014-10-07
alex
careful and only set it on "trusted" clients!
0228
2014-09-04
alex
User mode "F" is used by Bahamut for this purpose, for example.
0229
2014-09-04
alex
- Use server password when PAM is compiled in but disabled.
0230
2014-09-04
alex
- Streamline punctuation of log messages.
0231
2014-09-04
alex
- Return ISUPPORT(005) numerics on "VERSION". This is how ircd-seven,
0232
2014-09-04
alex
Charybdis, Hybrid, and InspIRCd behave, for example.
0233
2014-09-04
alex
- configure: Only link "contrib/Debian" if it exists, which isn't the case
0234
2014-09-04
alex
on "VPATH builds", for example.
0235
2014-09-04
alex
- Show the account name in WHOIS. This uses the same numeric as Charybdis
0236
2014-09-04
alex
and ircu families: WHOISLOGGEDIN(330).
0237
2014-09-04
alex
- Pattern matching: Remove "range matching" in our pattern matching code
0238
2014-09-04
alex
using the "[...]" syntax, because [ and ] are valid characters in nick
0239
2014-09-04
alex
names and one has to quote them currently using the "\" character, which
0240
2014-09-04
alex
is quite unexpected for users.
0241
2014-09-04
alex
- platformtest.sh: New option "-x", don't regenerate build system and
0242
2014-09-04
alex
allow using separate source and build trees.
0243
2014-09-04
alex
- Test suite: explicitly enable glibc memory checking.
0244
2014-09-04
alex
- Make "MODE -k" handling more robust and compatible, send "fake '*' key"
0245
2014-09-04
alex
in all replies.
0246
2014-09-04
alex
- portabtest: Actually test the functions snprintf(), strlcpy(), strlcat(),
0247
2014-09-04
alex
and vsnprintf() for correctness, not only existence (which was quite
0248
2014-09-04
alex
useless, because if they weren't available, the program could not have
0249
2014-09-04
alex
been linked at all ...).
0250
2014-09-04
alex
- Implement new configuration option "Network": it is used to set the
0251
2014-09-04
alex
(completely optional) "network name", to which this instance of the
0252
2014-09-04
alex
daemon belongs. When set, this name is used in the ISUPPORT(005) numeric
0253
2014-09-04
alex
which is sent to all clients connecting to the server after logging in.
0254
2014-09-04
alex
- Update doc/Platforms.txt.
0255
2014-09-04
alex
- Various code cleanups, remove unused code, streamline error handling.
0256
2014-09-04
alex
Remove all imp.h and exp.h header files, support non-standard vsnprintf()
0257
2014-09-04
alex
return codes, and fix some K&R C portability issues. Streamline
0258
2014-09-04
alex
DEBUG_ARRAY, DEBUG_BUFFER, DEBUG_IO, DEBUG_ZIP definitions.
0259
2014-09-04
alex
- Increase penalty time to 10 seconds when handling OPER commands with an
0260
2014-09-04
alex
invalid password.

2014-03-25
alex
- Don't ignore but use the server password when PAM is compiled in but
0265
2014-03-25
alex
disabled. Thanks to Roy Sindre Norangshol <roy.sindre@norangshol.no>!
0266
2014-03-25
alex
- doc/Platforms.txt: Update from master branch.
0267
2014-03-25
alex
- doc/Services.txt: Update information for Anope 2.x.
0268
2014-03-25
alex
- configure: add support for the LDFLAGS_END and LIBS_END variables to add
0269
2014-03-25
alex
linker flags and libraries at the end of the configure run (CFLAGS_END has
0270
2014-03-25
alex
been implemented already).
0271
2014-03-25
alex
- Update Copyright notices for 2014 :-)

ngIRCd 21 (2013-10-30)
0274
2013-06-04
alex
0275
2013-10-30
alex
- Call arc4random_stir() in forked subprocesses, when available. This
0276
2013-10-30
alex
is required by FreeBSD <10 and current NetBSD at least to correctly
0277
2013-10-30
alex
initialize the "arc4" random number generator on these platforms.

ngIRCd 21~rc2 (2013-10-20)
0280
2013-10-20
alex
- Report the correct configuration file name on configuration errors,
0281
2013-10-20
alex
support longer configuration lines, and warn when lines are truncated.
0282

2013-10-20
alex
ngIRCd 21~rc1 (2013-10-05)
0284
2013-10-02
alex
- Actually KILL clients on GLINE/KLINE. (Closes bug #156)
0285
2013-10-02
alex
- Add support to show all user links using the "STATS L" (uppercase)
0286
2013-10-02
alex
command (restricted to IRC Operators).
0287
2013-10-02
alex
- Implement configurable SSL cipher list selection for GnuTLS and OpenSSL
0288
2013-10-02
alex
using the new configuration option "CipherList". In addition, this
0289
2013-10-02
alex
changes the defaults to more secure values: "HIGH:!aNULL:@STRENGTH" for
0290
2013-10-02
alex
OpenSSL, and "SECURE128" for GnuTLS.
0291
2013-10-02
alex
- Show connection flag "s" (SSL) in RPL_TRACE{LINK|SERVER} messages: now
0292
2013-10-02
alex
you can check if a server-to-server link is SSL-encrypted or not using
0293
2013-10-02
alex
the IRC "TRACE" command.
0294
2013-10-02
alex
- Implement the new configuration option "DefaultUserModes" which lists
0295
2013-10-02
alex
user modes that become automatically set on new local clients right
0296
2013-10-02
alex
after login. Please note that only modes can be set that the client
0297
2013-10-02
alex
could set on itself, so you can't set "a" (away) or "o" (IRC Op),
0298
2013-10-02
alex
for example! User modes "i" (invisible) or "x" (cloaked) etc. are
0299
2013-10-02
alex
"interesting", though. (Closes bug #160)
0300
2013-10-02
alex
- Add support for the new METADATA "account" property, which allows
0301
2013-10-02
alex
services to automatically identify users after netsplits and across
0302
2013-10-02
alex
service restarts.
0303
2013-08-06
alex
- Implement a new configuration option "AllowedChannelTypes" that lists
0304
2013-08-06
alex
all allowed channel types (channel prefixes) for newly created channels
0305
2013-08-06
alex
on the local server. By default, all supported channel types are allowed.
0306
2013-08-06
alex
If set to the empty string, local clients can't create new channels at
0307
2013-08-06
alex
all, which equals the old "PredefChannelsOnly = yes" setting.
0308
2013-08-06
alex
This change deprecates the "PredefChannelsOnly" variable, too, but it is
0309
2013-10-07
alex
still supported and translated to the appropriate "AllowedChannelTypes"
0310
2013-08-06
alex
setting. When the old "PredefChannelsOnly" variable is processed, a
0311
2013-08-06
alex
warning message is logged. (Closes bug #152)
0312
2013-08-06
alex
- Add support for "client certificate fingerprinting". When a client
0313
2013-08-06
alex
passes an SSL certificate to the server, the "fingerprint" will be
0314
2013-08-06
alex
forwarded in the network which enables IRC services to identify the
0315
2013-08-06
alex
user using this certificate and not using passwords.
0316
2013-06-04
alex
- Implement a new configuration option "IncludeDir" in the "[Options]"
0317
2013-06-04
alex
section that can be used to specify a directory which can contain
0318
2013-06-04
alex
further configuration files and configuration file snippets matching
0319
2013-06-04
alex
the pattern "*.conf". These files are read in after the main server
0320
2013-06-04
alex
configuration file ("ngircd.conf" by default) has been read in and
0321
2013-06-04
alex
parsed. The default is "$SYSCONFDIR/ngircd.conf.d", so that it is
0322
2013-06-04
alex
possible to adjust the configuration only by placing additional files
0323
2013-06-04
alex
into this directory. (Closes bug #157)
0324
2013-06-04
alex
- Add Travis-CI configuration file (".travis.yml") to project.
0325
2013-06-04
alex
- ngIRCd now accepts user names including "@" characters, saves the
0326
2013-06-04
alex
unmodified name for authentication but stores only the part in front
0327
2013-06-04
alex
of the "@" character as "IRC user name". And the latter is how
0328
2013-06-04
alex
ircd2.11, Bahamut, and irc-seven behave as well. (Closes bug #155)
0329
2013-06-04
alex
- Lots of IRC "information functions" like ADMIN, INFO, ... now accept
0330
2013-06-04
alex
server masks and names of connected users (in addition to server names)
0331
2013-06-04
alex
for specifying the target server of the command. (Closes bug #153)
0332
2013-06-04
alex
- Implement a new configuration option "IdleTimeout" in the "[Limits]"
0333
2013-06-04
alex
section of the configuration file which can be used to set a timeout
0334
2013-06-04
alex
in seconds after which the whole daemon will shutdown when no more
0335
2013-06-04
alex
connections are left active after handling at least one client.
0336
2013-06-04
alex
The default is 0, "never".
0337
2013-06-04
alex
This can be useful for testing or when ngIRCd is started using "socket
0338
2013-06-04
alex
activation" with systemd(8), for example.
0339
2013-06-04
alex
- Implement support for systemd(8) "socket activation".
0340
2013-06-04
alex
- Enable WHOIS to display information about IRC Services using the new
0341
2013-06-04
alex
numeric 310(RPL_WHOISSERVICE) This numeric is used for this purpose by
0342
2013-06-04
alex
InspIRCd, for example -- but as usual, other numerics are in use, too,
0343
2013-06-04
alex
like 613 in UltimateIRCd ...
0344
2013-06-04
alex
Please note that neither the Operator (+o) not the "bot status" (+B)
0345
2013-10-07
alex
of an IRC service is displayed in the output.
0346
2013-06-04
alex
- Update systemd(8) example configuration files in ./contrib/ directory:
0347
2013-06-04
alex
the "ngircd.service" file now uses the "forking" service type which
0348
2013-06-04
alex
enhances the log messages shown by "systemctl status ngircd.service",
0349
2013-06-04
alex
and the new "ngircd.socket" file configures a systemd socket that
0350
2013-06-04
alex
configures a socket for ngIRCd and launches the daemon on demand.
0351
2013-06-04
alex
- Enhance help system and the HELP command: now a "help text file" can be
0352
2013-06-04
alex
set using the new configuration option "HelpFile" ("global" section),
0353
2013-06-04
alex
which is read in and parsed on server startup and configuration reload,
0354
2013-06-04
alex
and then is used to output individual help texts to specific topics.
0355

2013-08-23
alex
when the configuration option "NoticeAuth" is enabled (which is NOT the

0377
2012-08-03
alex
0378
2012-12-12
alex
- Allow user names ("INDENT") up to 20 characters when ngIRCd has not
0379
2012-12-12
alex
been configured for "strict RFC mode". This is useful if you are using
0380

ngIRCd 20~rc2 (2012-12-02)
0385
2012-12-02
alex
- Rework cloaked hostname handling and implement the "METADATA cloakhost"
0386
2012-12-02
alex
subcommand: Now ngIRCd uses two fields internally, one to store the
0387
2012-12-02
alex
"real" hostname and one to save the "cloaked" hostname. This allows
0388
2012-12-02
alex
"foreign servers" (aka "IRC services") to alter the real and cloaked
0389
2012-12-02
alex
hostnames of clients without problems, even when the user itself issues
0390
2012-12-02
alex
additional "MODE +x" and "MODE -x" commands.

2012-11-11
alex
ngIRCd 20~rc1 (2012-11-11)
0393
2012-11-10
alex
- Update doc/Services.txt: describe the upcoming version of Anope 1.9.8,
0394
2012-11-10
alex
then including a protocol module for ngIRCd. And remove our own patches
0395
2012-11-10
alex
in ./contrib/Anope because they aren't supported any more ...
0396
2012-11-10
alex
- Implement new "METADATA" command which can be used by remote servers
0397
2012-11-10
alex
and IRC services to update client metadata like the client info text
0398
2012-11-10
alex
("real name"), user name, and hostname, and use this command to
0399
2012-11-10
alex
configure an cloaked hostname (user mode "+x") on remote servers:
0400
2012-11-10
alex
This prevents "double cloaking" of hostnames and even cloaked
0401
2012-11-10
alex
hostnames are in sync on all servers supporting "METADATA" now.
0402
2012-11-10
alex
- Implement new IRC "SVSNICK" command to allow remote servers (and IRC
0403
2012-11-10
alex
services) to change nicknames of already registered users. The SVSNICK
0404
2012-11-10
alex
command itself doesn't change the nickname, but it becomes forwarded
0405
2012-11-10
alex
to the server to which the user is connected to. And then this server
0406
2012-11-10
alex
initiates the real nickname changing using regular NICK commands.
0407
2012-11-10
alex
This allows to run mixed networks with old servers not supporting the
0408
2012-11-10
alex
SVSNICK command, because SVSNICK commands for nicknames on such servers
0409
2012-11-10
alex
are silently ignored and don't cause a desynchronization of the network.
0410
2012-10-28
alex
- New configuration option "MaxListSize" to configure the maximum number
0411
2012-10-28
alex
of channels returned by a LIST command. The default is 100, as before.
0412
2012-10-24
alex
- Implement user mode "b", "block messages": when a user has set mode "b",
0413
2012-10-24
alex
all private messages and notices to this user are blocked if they don't
0414
2012-10-24
alex
originate from a registered user, an IRC Op, server or service. The
0415
2012-10-24
alex
originator gets an error numeric sent back in this case,
0416
2012-10-24
alex
ERR_NONONREG_MSG (486), which is used by UnrealIRCd, too. (Closes #144)
0417
2012-10-24
alex
- Implement channel mode "V" (invite disallow): If the new channel mode
0418
2012-10-24
alex
"V" is set, the INVITE command becomes invalid and all clients get the
0419
2012-10-24
alex
new ERR_NOINVITE_MSG (518) reply. (Closes #143)
0420
2012-10-24
alex
- Implement channel mode "Q" and user mode "q": Both modes protect users
0421
2012-10-24
alex
from channel kicks: only IRC operators and servers can kick users having
0422
2012-10-24
alex
mode "q" or in channels with mode "Q". (Closes #141)
0423
2012-10-24
alex
- Allow users to "cloak" their hostname only when the configuration
0424
2012-10-24
alex
variable "CloakHostModeX" (introduced in 19.2) is set. Otherwise, only
0425
2012-10-24
alex
IRC operators, other servers, and services are allowed to set the user
0426
2012-10-24
alex
mode "+x": this prevents regular users from changing their hostmask to
0427
2012-10-24
alex
the name of the IRC server itself, which confused quite a few people ;-)
0428
2012-10-24
alex
(Closes #133)
0429
2012-10-24
alex
- New configuration option "OperChanPAutoOp": If disabled, IRC operators
0430
2012-10-24
alex
don't become channel operators in persistent channels when joining.
0431
2012-10-24
alex
Enabled by default, which has been the behavior of ngIRCd up to this
0432
2012-10-24
alex
patch. (Closes #135)
0433
2012-10-24
alex
- Allow IRC operators to see secret (+s) channels in LIST command as long
0434
2012-10-24
alex
as the "MorePrivacy" configuration option isn't enabled in the
0435
2012-10-24
alex
configuration file. (Closes #136)
0436
2012-10-24
alex
- Implement new (optional) IRC+ "CHARCONV" command to set a client
0437
2012-10-24
alex
character set that the server translates all messages to/from UTF-8.
0438
2012-10-24
alex
This feature requires the "libiconv" library and must be enabled using
0439
2012-10-24
alex
the new "--with-iconv" option of the ./configure script. See
0440
2012-10-24
alex
doc/Protocol.txt for details. (Closes #109)
0441
2012-10-24
alex
- Implement user mode "B" ("Bot flag"): it is settable and unsettable by
0442
2012-10-24
alex
every (non-restricted) client. This is how Unreal and InspIRCd do
0443
2012-10-24
alex
behave, and so do we :-)
0444
2012-10-24
alex
- Implement channel mode "M": Only the server, identified users and IRC
0445
2012-10-24
alex
operators are able to talk in such a channel.
0446
2012-10-24
alex
- Block nicknames that are reserved for services and are defined using the
0447
2012-10-24
alex
configuration variable "ServiceMask" in "Server" blocks; And this
0448
2012-10-24
alex
variable now can handle more than one mask separated by commas.
0449
2012-10-24
alex
- Implemented XOP channel user modes: "Half Op" ("+h", prefix "%") can set
0450
2012-10-24
alex
the channel modes +imntvIbek and kick all +v and normal users; "Admin"
0451
2012-10-24
alex
("+a", prefix "&") can set channel modes +imntvIbekoRsz and kick all +o,
0452
2012-10-24
alex
+h, +v and normal users; and "Owner" ("+q", prefix "~") can set channel
0453
2012-10-24
alex
modes +imntvIbekoRsz and kick all +a, +o, +h, +v and normal users.
0454
2012-10-24
alex
- Implement hashed cloaked hostnames for both the "CloakHost" and
0455
2012-08-03
alex
"CloakHostModeX" configuration options: now the admin can use the new
0456
2012-08-03
alex
'%x' placeholder to insert a hashed version of the clients hostname,
0457
2012-08-03
alex
and the new configuration option "CloakHostSalt" defines the salt for
0458
2012-08-03
alex
the hash function. When "CloakHostSalt" is not set (the default), a
0459
2012-08-03
alex
random salt will be generated after each server restart.

alex
ngIRCd 19.2~rc1 (2012-06-13)
0464
2012-06-13
alex
- New configuration option "CloakHostModeX" to configure the hostname
0465
2012-06-13
alex
that gets used for IRC clients which have user mode "+x" enabled.
0466
2012-06-13
alex
Up to now, the name of the IRC server itself has been used for this,
0467
2012-06-13
alex
which still is the default when "CloakHostModeX" isn't set.
0468
2012-06-09
alex
- Add instructions for setting up Atheme IRC services.
0469
2012-06-09
alex
- Implement support for IRC capability handling, the new "CAP" command,
0470
2015-09-06
alex
and capability "multi-prefix" which allows both the NAME and WHO command
0471
2012-06-09
alex
handlers to return more than one "class prefix" to the client.

ngIRCd 19.1 (2012-03-19)
0474
2012-03-05
alex
0475
2012-05-07
alex
- Really include _all_ patches to build the Anope module into the
0476
2012-03-05
alex
distribution archive ... ooops!

2012-02-12
alex
ngIRCd 19~rc1 (2012-02-12)
0481
2012-02-12
alex
- Update preliminary ngIRCd protocol module for Anope 1.9.6, which now
0482
2012-02-12
alex
is the only supported version.
0483
2012-05-07
alex
- New numeric RPL_WHOISHOST_MSG(378), which returns the DNS host name
0484
2012-01-23
alex
(if available) and the IP address of a client in the WHOIS reply.
0485
2012-01-23
alex
Only the user itself and local IRC operators get this numeric.
0486
2012-01-22
alex
- Implement channel exception list (mode 'e'). This allows a channel
0487
2012-01-22
alex
operator to define exception masks that allow users to join the
0488
2012-01-22
alex
channel even when a "ban" would match and prevent them from joining:
0489
2012-01-22
alex
the exception list (e) overrides the ban list (b).
0490
2012-01-22
alex
- Implement user mode 'C': If the target user of a PRIVMSG or NOTICE
0491
2012-01-22
alex
command has the user mode 'C' set, it is required that both sender
0492
2012-01-22
alex
and receiver are on the same channel. This prevents private flooding
0493
2012-01-22
alex
by completely unknown clients.
0494
2012-01-22
alex
- New RPL_WHOISREGNICK_MSG(307) numeric in WHOIS command replies: it
0495
2012-11-02
alex
indicates if a nickname is registered (if user mode 'R' set).
0496
2012-01-22
alex
- Limit channel invite, ban, and exception lists to 50 entries and fix
0497
2012-01-22
alex
duplicate check and error messages when adding already listed entries
0498
2012-01-22
alex
or deleting no (longer) existing ones.
0499
2012-01-13
alex
- Limit the number of list items in the reply of LIST (100), WHO (25),
0500
2012-01-13
alex
WHOIS (10), and WHOWAS (25) commands.
0501
2012-01-13
alex
- Limit the MODE command to handle a maximum number of 5 channel modes
0502
2012-01-13
alex
that require an argument (+Ibkl) per call and report this number
0503
2012-01-13
alex
in the ISUPPORT(005) numeric: "MODES=5".
0504
2012-01-13
alex
- LINKS command: support <mask> parameter to limit the reply.
0505
2012-01-13
alex
- Add 1 second penalty for every further target on PRIVMSG/NOTICE
0506
2012-01-13
alex
commands: this reduces the possibility of flooding channels with
0507
2012-01-13
alex
commands like "PRIVMSG/NOTICE #a,#n,#c,... :message" a little bit.
0508
2012-01-13
alex
Problem noticed by Cahata, thanks!
0509
2011-01-01
alex
- New configuration option "PAMIsOptional": when set, clients not
0510
2011-01-01
alex
sending a password are still allowed to connect: they won't become
0511
2011-01-01
alex
"identified" and keep the "~" character prepended to their supplied
0512
2011-01-01
alex
user name. See "man 5 ngircd.conf" for details.
0513
2011-01-01
alex
- Fixed handling of WHO commands. This fixes two bugs: "WHO <nick>"
0514
2011-01-01
alex
returned nothing at all if the user was "+i" (reported by Cahata,
0515
2011-01-01
alex
thanks) and "WHO <nick|nickmask>" returned channel names instead
0516
2011-01-01
alex
of "*" when the user was member of a (visible) channel.
0517
2011-01-01
alex
- LUSERS reply: only count channels that are visible to the requesting
0518
2011-01-01
alex
client, so the existence of secret channels is no longer revealed by
0519
2011-01-01
alex
using LUSERS. Reported by Cahata, thanks!
0520
2011-01-01
alex
- Unknown user and channel modes no longer stop the mode parser, but
0521
2011-01-01
alex
are simply ignored. Therefore modes after the unknown one are now
0522
2011-01-01
alex
handled. This is how ircd2.10/ircd2.11/ircd-seven behave, at least.
0523
2011-01-01
alex
Reported by Cahata, thanks!
0524
2011-01-01
alex
- Implement IRC commands "GLINE" and "KLINE" to ban users. G-Lines are
0525
2011-01-01
alex
synchronized between server on peering, K-Lines are local only.
0526
2012-01-23
alex
If you use "*!<user>@<host>" or "*!*@<host>" masks, these connections
0527
2012-01-23
alex
are blocked even before the user is fully logged in (before PASS,
0528
2012-01-23
alex
NICK, and USER commands have been processed) and before the child
0529
2012-01-23
alex
processes for authentication are forked, so resource usage is smaller.
0530
2011-01-01
alex
- Added doc/Modes.txt: document modes supported by ngIRCd.
0531
2012-11-02
alex
- Implement user mode "R": indicates that the nickname of this user
0532
2011-01-01
alex
is "registered". This mode isn't handled by ngIRCd itself, but must
0533
2011-01-01
alex
be set and unset by IRC services like Anope.
0534
2011-01-01
alex
- Implement channel mode "R": only registered users (having the user
0535
2011-01-01
alex
mode "R" set) are allowed to join this channel.
0536
2011-01-01
alex
- Test suite: bind to loopback (127.0.0.1) interface only.
0537
2011-01-01
alex
- Handle unknown user and channel modes: these modes are saved and
0538
2011-01-01
alex
forwarded to other servers, but ignored otherwise.
0539
2011-01-01
alex
- Handle channel user modes 'a', 'h', and 'q' from remote servers.
0540
2011-01-01
alex
These channel user modes aren't used for anything at the moment,
0541
2011-01-01
alex
but ngIRCd knows that these three modes are "channel user modes"
0542
2012-11-02
alex
and not "channel modes", that is that these modes take an "nickname"
0543
2011-01-01
alex
argument. Like unknown user and channel modes, these modes are saved
0544
2011-01-01
alex
and forwarded to other servers, but ignored otherwise.
0545
2011-01-01

ngIRCd 18 (2011-07-10)
0547
2002-12-31
alex
0548
2011-07-10
alex
- Add preliminary ngIRCd protocol module for Anope 1.9 to contrib/Anope/.

0550
2011-06-29
alex
ngIRCd 18~rc2 (2011-06-29)
0551
2011-06-29
alex
- GnuTLS: use 1024 bits as minimum size of the DH prime. This enables
0552
2011-06-29
alex
ngIRCd to accept incoming connections from other servers and clients
0553
2011-06-29
alex
that "only" use at least 1024 bits again, like ngIRCd 17 did (and no
0554
2011-06-29
alex
longer requires 2048 bits for incoming connections).
0555
2011-06-29
alex
0556
2011-06-27
alex
ngIRCd 18~rc1 (2011-06-27)
0557
2011-06-28
alex
- New configuration option "MorePrivacy" to "censor" some user information.
0558
2011-06-28
alex
When enabled, signon time and idle time is left out. Part and quit
0559
2011-06-26
alex
messages are made to look the same. WHOWAS requests are silently dropped.
0560
2011-06-26
alex
All of this is useful if one wish to conceal users that access the ngircd
0561
2011-06-26
alex
servers from TOR or I2P.
0562
2011-06-26
alex
- New configuration option "ScrubCTCP" to scrub incoming CTCP commands. If
0563
2011-06-28
alex
activated, the server silently drops incoming CTCP requests from both
0564
2011-06-26
alex
other servers and from users. The server that scrubs CTCP will not forward
0565
2011-06-26
alex
the CTCP requests to other servers in the network either, which can spell
0566
2011-06-26
alex
trouble if not every oper knows about the CTCP-scrubbing. Scrubbing CTCP
0567
2011-06-26
alex
commands also means that it is not possible to send files between users.
0568
2011-06-26
alex
There is one exception to the CTCP scrubbing performed: ACTION ("/me
0569
2011-06-26
alex
commands") requests are not scrubbed.
0570
2011-06-26
alex
- Restructure ngIRCd configuration file: introduce new [Limits], [Options],
0571
2011-06-26
alex
and [SSL] sections. The intention of this restructuring is to make the
0572
2011-06-26
alex
[Global] section much cleaner, so that it only contains variables that
0573
2011-06-26
alex
most installations must adjust to the local requirements. All the optional
0574
2011-06-26
alex
variables are moved to [Limits], for configurable limits and timers of
0575
2011-06-26
alex
ngIRCd, and [Options], for optional features. All SSL-related variables
0576
2011-06-26
alex
are moved to [SSL] and the "SSL"-prefix is stripped. The old variables in
0577
2011-06-26
alex
the [Global] section are deprecated now, but are still recognized.
0578
2011-06-26
alex
=> Don't forget to check your configuration, use "ngircd --configtest"!
0579
2011-06-26
alex
- New documentation "how to contribute": doc/Contributing.txt.
0580
2011-06-28
alex
- Avoid needlessly scary 'buffer overflow' messages: When the write buffer
0581
2011-06-26
alex
space grows too large, ngIRCd has to disconnect the client to avoid
0582
2011-06-26
alex
wasting too much memory, which is logged with a scary 'write buffer
0583
2011-06-26
alex
overflow' message. Change this to a more descriptive wording.
0584
2011-06-26
alex
- New configuration option "RequireAuthPing": PING-PONG on login. When
0585
2011-06-26
alex
enabled, this configuration option lets ngIRCd send a PING with an numeric
0586
2011-06-26
alex
"token" to clients logging in; and it will not become registered in the
0587
2011-06-26
alex
network until the client responds with the correct PONG.
0588
2011-06-26
alex
- New configuration option "NoticeAuth": send NOTICE AUTH on connect. When
0589
2011-06-26
alex
active, ngircd will send "NOTICE AUTH" messages on client connect time
0590
2011-06-26
alex
like e.g. snircd (QuakeNet) does.
0591
2011-06-26
alex
- Add support for up to 3 targets in WHOIS queries, also allow up to one
0592
2011-06-26
alex
wildcard query from local hosts. Follows ircd 2.10 implementation rather
0593
2011-06-26
alex
than RFC 2812. At most 10 entries are returned per wildcard expansion.
0594
2011-06-26
alex
- ngircd.conf(5) manual page: describe types of configuration variables
0595
2011-06-26
alex
(booleans, text strings, integer numbers) and add type information to each
0596
2011-06-26
alex
variable description.
0597
2011-06-26
alex
- Terminate incoming connections on HTTP commands "GET" and "POST".
0598
2012-05-07
alex
- New configuration option "CloakHost": when set, this host name is used for
0599
2012-05-07
alex
every client instead of the real DNS host name (or IP address).
0600
2011-06-26
alex
- New configuration option "CloakUserToNick": when enabled, ngIRCd sets
0601
2012-11-02
alex
every clients' user name to their nickname and hides the user name
0602
2011-06-26
alex
supplied by the IRC client.
0603
2011-06-26
alex
- Make write buffers bigger, but flush early. Before this change, a client
0604
2011-06-26
alex
got disconnected if the buffer flushing at 4k failed, now regular clients
0605
2011-06-26
alex
can store up to 32k and servers up 64k even if flushing is not possible at
0606
2011-06-26
alex
the moment. This enhances reliability on slow links.
0607
2011-06-26
alex
- Allow "Port = 0" in [Server] blocks. Port number 0 marks remote servers
0608
2011-06-26
alex
that try to connect to this daemon, but where this daemon never tries to
0609
2011-06-28
alex
establish a connection on its own: only incoming connections are allowed.
0610
2011-06-26
alex
- Enable WHOIS command to return information about services.
0611
2011-06-26
alex
- Implement channel mode 'O': "IRC operators only". This channel mode is
0612
2011-06-26
alex
used on DALnet (bahamut), for example.
0613
2011-06-26
alex
- Remove support for ZeroConf/Bonjour/Rendezvous service registration
0614
2011-06-26
alex
including the "[No]ZeroConf" configuration option.
0615
2011-06-26
alex
- Deprecate NoXX-Options in ngircd.conf and move new variants into our new
0616
2011-06-26
alex
[Options] section: 'NoDNS=no' => 'DNS=yes', 'NoIdent=no' => 'Ident=yes',
0617
2011-06-26
alex
'NoPAM=no' => 'PAM=yes', and 'NoZeroConf=no' => 'ZeroConf=yes' (and
0618
2011-06-26
alex
vice-versa). The defaults are adjusted accordingly and the old variables
0619
2011-06-26
alex
in [Global] are still accepted, so there is no functional change.

2010-10-25
alex
- Generate ngIRCd version number from GIT tag.
0633
2015-09-06
alex
- Make source code compatible with ansi2knr again. This allows to compile
0634
2010-10-25
alex
ngIRCd using a pre-ANSI K&R C compiler again.

2010-10-11
alex
ngIRCd 17~rc1 (2010-10-11)
0637
2010-10-11
alex
- New configuration option "NoZeroConf" to disable service registration at
0638
2010-10-11
alex
runtime even if ngIRCd is compiled with support for ZeroConf (e.g. using
0639
2010-10-11
alex
Howl, Avahi or on Mac OS X).
0640
2010-09-24
alex
- New configuration option "SyslogFacility" to define the syslog "facility"
0641
2010-09-24
alex
(the "target"), to which ngIRCd should send its log messages.
0642
2015-09-06
alex
Possible values are system dependent, but most probably "auth", "daemon",
0643
2010-09-24
alex
"user" and "local1" through "local7" are possible values; see syslog(3).
0644
2010-09-24
alex
Default is "local5" for historical reasons.
0645
2010-09-13
alex
- Dump the "internal server state" (configured servers, established
0646
2010-09-13
alex
connections and known clients) to the console or syslog when receiving
0647
2010-09-13
alex
the SIGUSR2 signal and debug mode is enabled.
0648
2010-09-13
alex
- Enable the daemon to disable and enable "debug mode" on runtime using
0649
2010-09-13
alex
signal SIGUSR1, when debug code is compiled in, not only on startup
0650
2010-09-13
alex
using the command line parameters.
0651
2012-05-07
alex
- Implement user mode "x": host name cloaking (closes: #102).
0652
2015-09-06
alex
- Change MOTD file handling: ngIRCd now caches the contents of the MOTD
0653
2010-08-29
alex
file, so the daemon now requires a HUP signal or REHASH command to
0654
2010-08-29
alex
re-read the MOTD file when its content changed.
0655
2010-08-29
alex
- Allow IRC ops to change channel modes even without OperServerMode set.
0656
2010-08-29
alex
- Allow IRC operators to use MODE command on any channel (closes: #100).
0657
2010-08-29
alex
- New configuration option "NoPAM" to disable PAM.
0658
2010-08-29
alex
- Implement asynchronous user authentication using PAM, please see the
0659
2010-08-29
alex
file doc/PAM.txt for details.
0660
2010-10-11
alex
- Add some documentation for using BOPM with ngIRCd, see doc/Bopm.txt.
0661
2010-08-29
alex
- Implement user mode "c": receive connect/disconnect NOTICEs. Note that
0662
2010-08-29
alex
this new mode requires the user to be an IRC operator.
0663
2010-08-29
alex
- Show SSL status in WHOIS output, numeric 275.

2015-09-06
alex
- Enhance connection statistics counters: display total number of served
0669
2010-04-25
alex
connections on daemon shutdown and when a new client connects using
0670
2010-04-25
alex
the new numeric RPL_STATSCONN (250).

alex
ngIRCd 16~rc1 (2010-03-25)
0673
2010-03-25
alex
- Implement WEBIRC command used by some Web-IRC frontends. The password
0674
2010-03-25
alex
required to secure this command must be configured using the new
0675
2010-03-25
alex
"WebircPassword" variable in the ngircd.conf file.
0676
2010-03-25
alex
- Remove limit on max number of configured irc operators.
0677
2010-01-17
alex
- A new channel mode "secure connections only" (+z) has been implemented:
0678
2010-01-17
alex
Only clients using a SSL encrypted connection to the server are allowed
0679
2010-01-17
alex
to join such a channel.
0680
2010-01-17
alex
But please note three things: a) already joined clients are not checked
0681
2010-01-17
alex
when setting this mode, b) IRC operators are always allowed to join
0682
2010-01-17
alex
every channel, and c) remote clients using a server not supporting this
0683
2010-01-17
alex
mode are not checked either and therefore always allowed to join.

alex
ngIRCd 15~rc1 (2009-10-15)
0688
2009-10-03
alex
- Do not add default listening port (6667) if SSL ports were specified, so
0689
2009-10-03
alex
ngIRCd can be configured to only accept SSL-encrypted connections now.
0690
2015-09-06
alex
- Enable IRC operators to use the IRC command SQUIT (instead of the already
0691
2009-10-03
alex
implemented but non-standard DISCONNECT command).
0692
2009-10-03
alex
- New configuration option "AllowRemoteOper" (disabled by default) that
0693
2009-10-03
alex
enables remote IRC operators to use the IRC commands SQUIT and CONNECT
0694
2009-10-03
alex
on the local server.
0695
2009-08-12
alex
- Enforce upper limit on maximum number of handled commands. This implements
0696
2009-08-12
alex
a throttling scheme: an IRC client can send up to 3 commands or 256 bytes
0697
2009-08-12
alex
per second before a one second pause is enforced.

alex
new configuration variable "KeyFile" in [Channel] sections in ngircd.conf,
0712

alex
here a file can be configured for each pre-defined channel which contains
0713
2009-03-03
alex
individual channel keys for different users.
0714
2009-03-03

0721
2008-11-12
alex
tested with IRCServices (http://www.ircservices.za.net/) version 5.1.13.
0722
2008-11-12
alex
For this to work, ngIRCd now supports server-server links conforming
0723

0729
2008-11-19
alex
visible to users of the same server and are not visible in the network.
0730
2008-11-19
alex
In addition ngIRCd creates a "special" channel &SERVER on startup and logs
0731

2008-11-12
alex
is treated as Listen="::,0.0.0.0".
0742
2008-11-12
alex
Note: ListenIPv4 and ListenIPv6 options are still recognized,
0743
2008-11-12
alex
but ngircd will print a warning if they are used in the config file.

alex
the server writes its process ID (PID) to this file. Default: off.
0820
2005-02-04
alex
Idea of Florian Westphal, <westphal@foo.fh-furtwangen.de>.

alex
- Two new configuration options: "ChrootDir" and "MotdPhrase", thanks to
0828
2004-05-07
alex
Benjamin Pineau <ben@zouh.org>. Now you can force the daemon to change
0829
2004-05-07
alex
its root and working directory to something "safe". MotdPhrase is used
0830
2004-05-07
alex
to define an "MOTD string" instead of a whole file, useful if the
0831
2004-05-07
alex
"real" MOTD file would be outside the "jail".
0832
2004-04-25
alex
- INVITE- and BAN-lists become synchronized between IRC+ servers when
0833
2004-04-25
alex
establishing new connections, if the peer supports this as well.
0834
2004-01-25
alex
- The type of service (TOS) of all sockets is set to "interactive" now.
0835

alex
- Added short command line option "-t" as alternative to "--configtest".
0836
2003-12-27
alex
- Added optional support for "IDENT" lookups on incoming connections. You
0837
2003-12-27
alex
have to enable this function with the ./configure switch "--with-ident".
0838
2003-12-27
alex
The default is not to do IDENT lookups.

simultaneous connections from a single IP that the server will accept.
0844
2003-11-05
alex
This configuration options lowers the risk of denial of service attacks
0845
2003-11-05
alex
(DoS), the default is 5 connections per client IP.
0846
2003-09-11
alex

alex
configured server and "CONNECT <name> <port> <host> <mypwd> <peerpwd>"
0858

ngIRCd 0.6.0, 24.12.2002
0876
2002-12-18
alex
0877
2002-11-02
alex
- beim Schliessen einer Verbindung zeigt der Server nun vor dem ERROR
0878
2002-11-02
alex
noch eine Statistik ueber die empfangene und gesendete Datenmenge an.
0879
2002-11-02
alex
- Connection-Strukturen werden nun "pool-weise" verwaltet; der Pool wird
0880
2002-11-02
alex
bei Bedarf bis zu einem konfigurierten Limit vergroessert.
0881
2002-11-02
alex
- Mit der neuen Konfigurationsvariable "MaxConnections" (Sekion "Global")
0882
2002-11-02
alex
kann die maximale Anzahl gleichzeitiger Verbindungen begrenzt werden.
0883
2002-11-02
alex
Der Default ist -1, "unlimitiert".
0884
2002-11-23
alex
- der Server erkennt nun, ob bereits eine eingehende Verbindung von einem
0885
2002-11-23
alex
Peer-Server besteht und versucht dann nicht mehr, selber eine eigene
0886
2002-11-23
alex
ausgehende Verbindung zu diesem auufzubauen. Dadurch kann nun auf beiden
0887
2002-11-23
alex
Servern in der Konfiguration ein Port fuer den Connect konfiguriert
0888
2002-11-23
alex
werden (beide Server versuchen sich dann gegenseitig zu connectieren).
0889
2011-12-29
alex
- Server identifizieren sich nun mit asynchronen Passwoertern, d.h. das
0890
2002-11-23
alex
Passwort, welches A an B schickt, kann ein anderes sein als das, welches
0891
2002-11-23
alex
B als Antwort an A sendet. In der Konfig.-Datei, Abschnitt "Server",
0892
2002-11-23
alex
wurde "Password" dazu durch "MyPassword" und "PeerPassword" ersetzt.
0893
2002-11-23
alex
- Der Server kann nun zur Laufzeit die Konfiguration neu einlesen: dies
0894
2002-11-23
alex
macht er nach dem Befehl REHASH oder wenn ein HUP-Signal empfangen wird.
0895
2002-11-26
alex
- Server-Server-Links koennen nun komprimiert werden, dazu wird die zlib
0896
2002-11-26
alex
(www.zlib.org) benoetigt. Unterstuetzt die Gegenseite die Komprimierung
0897
2002-11-26
alex
nicht, wird automatisch unkomprimiert kommuniziert. Das Verfahren ist
0898
2002-11-26
alex
kompatibel mit dem Original-ircd 2.10.3, d.h. beide Server koennen
0899
2002-11-26
alex
miteinander ueber komprimiert Links kommunizieren.
0900
2002-12-18
alex
- neue Konfigurations-Variable "MaxJoins": Hiermit kann die maximale Zahl

0908
2002-09-19
alex

0910
2002-05-31
alex
- "persistente Channels" (Mode 'P') implementiert: diese koennen in der
0911

alex
Konfigurationsdatei definiert werden (Sektion "Channel", vgl. Beispiel-
0912
2002-05-31

Konfiguration "sample-ngircd.conf") und bleiben auch dann bestehen,
0913
2002-09-19
alex
wenn kein User mehr im Channel ist.

0917
2002-09-19
alex
gibt es neue Konfigurationsoptionen (Sektion "Global"): "AdminInfo1",
0918
2002-09-19

alex
- Invite- und Ban-Lists implementiert.
0920
2002-09-16

alex
- stderr wird nun in eine Datei umgelenkt (/ngircd-<PID>.err).
0933
2002-03-10
alex
Laeuft der Server nicht im Debug-Modus, so wird diese bei Programm-
0934
2002-03-10
alex
ende geloescht. Sollte der Server abstuerzen, finden sich hier evtl.
0935
2002-03-10
alex
zusaetzliche Informationen.
0936
2002-03-10
alex
- Server-Gruppen implementiert: es wird immer nur zu einem Server in
0937
2002-03-10
alex
einer Gruppe eine Verbindung aufgebaut, klappt es beim ersten Server
0938
2002-03-10
alex
nicht, so wird der naechste probiert.
0939
2002-03-27
alex
- Clients und Channels werden nicht mehr ueber ihren Namen, sondern
0940
2002-03-27
alex
einen Hash-Wert gesucht: sollte deutlich schneller sein.
0941
2002-03-27
alex
- neuer Kommandozeilen-Parameter "--configtest": die Konfiguration wird
0942

0950
2002-02-19
alex
0951
2002-02-19
alex
- bekommt der Server ein HUP-Signal, so startet er neu -- genau so, wie

alex
er auf den IRC-Befehl RESTART reagiert.
0953
2002-02-19
alex
- neuer Kommandozeilen-Schalter "--passive" (-p): wird er angegeben, so
0954
2002-02-19
alex
verbindet sich der ngIRCd nicht mehr automatisch zu anderen Servern.
0955
2002-02-19
alex
Zum Debuggen manchmal ganz praktisch :-)

0965
2002-02-13
alex
Server versteht an User-Modes o und v, beachtet letzteres allerdings
0966
2002-02-13
alex
noch nirgends. Bekannte (aber nicht beachtete!) Channel-Modes sind
0967
2002-02-13

bisher a, m, n, p, q, s und t. Diese Modes werden von Usern ange-
0968
