We're pleased to be publishing v2.10.0, a new stable release.

This release contains no changes to the config file format or database file format.

Many thanks to @csmith, @FiskFan1999, @Mikaela, @progval, and @thesamesam for contributing patches, and to @emersion, @eskimo, @FiskFan1999, @jigsy1, @Mikaela, @mogad0n, @progval, and @xnaas for reporting issues and helping test.

Config changes

  • For better interoperability with Goguma, the recommended value of history.chathistory-maxmessages has been increased to 1000 (previously 100) (#1919)

Changed

  • Persistent voice (AMODE +v) in a channel is now treated as a permanent invite (i.e. overriding +i on the channel) (#1901, thanks @eskimo!)
  • If you are +R, sending a direct message to an anonymous user allows them to send you replies (#1687, #1688, thanks @Mikaela and @progval!)
  • 0 is no longer valid as a nickname or account name, with a grandfather exception if it was registered on a previous version of Ergo (#1896)
  • Implemented the ratified version of the bot mode spec; the tag name is now bot instead of draft/bot (#1938)
  • Privileged WHOX on a user with multiclient shows an arbitrarily chosen client IP address, comparable to WHO (#1897)
  • SAREGISTER is allowed even under DEFCON levels 4 and lower (#1922)
  • Operators with the history capability are now exempted from time cutoff restrictions on history retrieval (#1593, #1955)

Added

  • Added draft/read-marker capability, allowing server-side tracking of read messages for synchronization across multiple clients. (#1926, thanks @emersion!)
  • INFO now includes the server start time (#1895, thanks @xnaas!)
  • Added ACCEPT command modeled on Charybdis/Solanum, allowing +R users to whitelist users who can DM them (#1688, thanks @Mikaela!)
  • Added NS SAVERIFY for operators to manually complete an account verification (#1924, #1952, thanks @tacerus!)

Fixed

  • Having the samode operator capability made all uses of the KICK command privileged (i.e. overriding normal channel privilege checks); this has been fixed (#1906, thanks @pcho!)
  • Fixed LIST <n always returning no results (#1934, thanks @progval and @mitchr!)
  • NickServ commands are now more clear about when a nickname is unavailable because it was previously registered and unregistered (#1886, thanks @Mikaela!)
  • Fixed KLINE'd clients producing a QUIT snotice without a corresponding CONNECT snotice (#1941, thanks @tacerus, @xnaas!)
  • Fixed incorrect handling of long/multiline 319 RPL_WHOISCHANNELS responses (#1935, thanks @Mikaela!)
  • Fixed LIST returning 403 ERR_NOSUCHCHANNEL for a nonexistent channel; the correct response is an empty list (#1928, thanks @emersion!)
  • Fixed +s ("secret") channels not appearing in LIST even when the client is already a member (#1911, #1923, thanks @jigsy1 and @FiskFan1999!)
  • Fixed a spurious success message in HISTSERV DELETE by always requiring a consistent number of parameters (#1881, #1927, thanks @FiskFan1999!)
  • Sending the empty string as a nickname would not always produce the expected error numeric 431 ERR_NONICKNAMEGIVEN; this has been fixed (#1933, #1936, thanks @kylef!)
  • znc.in/playback timestamps are now parsed as pairs of exact integers, not as floats (#1918)

Internal

  • Upgraded to Go 1.18 (#1925)
  • Upgraded Alpine version in official Docker image
  • Fixed some issues in the example OpenRC init scripts (#1914, #1920, thanks @thesamesam!)

Ergo 2.9.1 is a bugfix release, fixing a regression introduced in 2.9.0. We regret the oversight.

This release includes no changes to the config file format or database format relative to 2.9.0.

Many thanks to @FiskFan1999 for reporting the issue.

Fixed

  • Every use of NS SAREGISTER would fail; this has been fixed (#1898, thanks @FiskFan1999!)
v2.9.0
Compare
Choose a tag to compare

We're pleased to be publishing 2.9.0, a new stable release. This release contains mostly bug fixes, with some enhancements to moderation tools.

This release includes changes to the config file format, all of which are fully backwards-compatible and do not require updating the file before upgrading. It includes no changes to the database file format.

Many thanks to @erincerys, @FiskFan1999, @mogad0n, and @tacerus for contributing patches, and to @ajaspers, @emersion, @FiskFan1999, @Jobe1986, @kylef, @mogad0n, @pcho, and @progval for reporting issues,

Config changes

  • Added lock-file, which helps protect against accidentally starting multiple instances of Ergo. This is a no-op if unset. The recommended default value is ircd.lock, which (like the default datastore path ircd.db) is relative to the working directory of the Ergo process. If your datastore.path is absolute, this path (if set) should be absolute as well. (#1823)
  • +C (no channel-wide CTCP messages other than ACTION) is now a recommended default channel mode (#1851)
  • Added exempt-sasl boolean to server.ip-check-script; if enabled, IP check scripts are run only for connections without SASL, improving performance for registered users (#1888)
  • hidden: true is now the recommended default for operator definitions (#1730)

Changed

  • The semantics of +R have been changed. +R now only prevents unauthenticated users from joining, so unregistered users who have already joined can still speak. The old semantics are still available via +RM (i.e. +R together with the +M "moderated-registered" mode). (#1858, thanks @ajaspers!)
  • Unauthenticated users matching a +I invite exception mask can now join +R channels (#1871)
  • INVITE now exempts the user from +b bans (#1876, thanks @progval!)
  • NS SUSPEND now only requires only the ban operator capability, as opposed to accreg (#1828, #1839, thanks @mogad0n!)

Added

  • SHA-256 certificate fingerprints can now be imported from Anope and Atheme (#1864, #1869, thanks @tacerus!)
  • IP check scripts can now be run only for users that have not authenticated with SASL by the end of the handshake, improving performance for registered users (#1888)
  • Logging into an unverified account with SASL sends the new NOTE AUTHENTICATE VERIFICATION_REQUIRED standard reply code (#1852, #1853, thanks @emersion!)
  • CS PURGE now sends a snotice (#1826, thanks @tacerus!)
  • The v snomask is now used to send notifications about vhost changes initiated by operators (#1844, thanks @pcho!)

Fixed

  • CAP LS and LIST responses after connection registration could be truncated in some cases; this has been fixed (#1872)
  • Unprivileged users with both a password and a certfp could not remove their password with NS PASSWD <password> * * as expected; this has been fixed (#1883, #1884, thanks @FiskFan1999!)
  • RELAYMSG identifiers that were not already in their case-normalized form could not be muted with +b m:; this has been fixed (#1838, thanks @mogad0n!)
  • CS AMODE changes did not take immediate effect if force-nick-equals-account was disabled and the nick did not coincide with the account; this has been fixed (#1860, thanks @eskimo!)
  • 315 RPL_ENDOFWHO now sends the exact, un-normalized mask argument provided by the client (#1831, thanks @progval!)
  • A leading $ character is now disallowed in new nicknames and account names, to avoid collision with the massmessage syntax (#1857, thanks @emersion!)
  • The deprecated o parameter of WHO now returns an empty list of results, instead of being ignored (#1730, thanks @kylef, @emersion, @progval!)
  • WHOX queries for channel oplevel now receive * instead of 0 (#1866, thanks @Jobe1986!)

Internal

  • Updated list of official release binaries: added Apple M1, OpenBSD x86-64, and Plan 9 x86-64, removed Linux armv7, FreeBSD x86-32, and Windows x86-32. (The removed platforms are still fully supported by Ergo; you can build them from source or ask us for help.) (#1833)
  • Added an official Linux arm64 Docker image (#1855, thanks @erincerys!)
  • Added service management files for OpenSolaris/Illumos (#1846, thanks @tacerus!)

v2.8.0

Choose a tag to compare

We're pleased to be publishing Ergo 2.8.0. This release contains many fixes and enhancements, plus one major user-facing feature: user-initiated password resets via e-mail (#734).

This release includes changes to the config file format, all of which are fully backwards-compatible and do not require updating the file before upgrading.

This release includes a database change. If you have datastore.autoupgrade set to true in your configuration, it will be automatically applied when you restart Ergo. Otherwise, you can update the database manually by running ergo upgradedb (see the manual for complete instructions).

As part of this release, our official Docker images have moved from Docker Hub to the GitHub Container Registry, at ghcr.io/ergochat/ergo. The stable and master tags correspond to the respective branches. Tagged releases (e.g. v2.8.0) are available under the corresponding named tags.

Many thanks to @ajaspers, @delthas, @mogad0n, @majiru, @ProgVal, and @tacerus for contributing patches, to @ajaspers for contributing code review, to @ajaspers, @cxxboy, @dallemon, @emersion, @erikh, @eskimo, @jwheare, @kylef, @Mikaela, @mogad0n, @MystaraTheGreat, @ProgVal, @tacerus, @tamiko, and @xnaas for reporting issues and helping test, and to our translators for contributing translations.

Config changes

  • Added accounts.registration.email-verification.password-reset block to configure e-mail-based password reset (#734, #1779)
  • Added accounts.registration.email-verification.timeout to impose a timeout on e-mail sending; the recommended default value is 60s (60 seconds) (#1741)
  • Added server.suppress-lusers to allow hiding the LUSERS counts (#1802, thanks @eskimo!)

Security

  • Added accounts.registration.email-verification.timeout to impose a timeout on e-mail sending; the recommended default value is 60s (60 seconds) (#1741)

Added

  • Added user-initiated password resets via email (#734). This requires e-mail verification of accounts, and must additionally be enabled explicitly: see the email-verification block in default.yaml for more information.
  • Added the draft/extended-monitor capability (#1761, thanks @delthas!)
  • When doing direct sending of verification emails, make email delivery failures directly visible to the end user (#1659, #1741, thanks @tacerus!)
  • For operators, NS INFO now shows the user's email address (you can also view your own address) (#1677, thanks @ajaspers!)
  • Operators with the appropriate permissions will now see IPs in /WHOWAS output (#1702, thanks @ajaspers!)
  • Added the +s d snomask, for operators to receive information about session disconnections that do not result in a full QUIT (#1709, #1728, thanks @mogad0n!)
  • Added support for the SCRAM-SHA-256 SASL authentication mechanism (#175). This mechanism is not currently advertised in CAP LS output because IRCCloud handles it incorrectly. We also recommend against using SCRAM because of its lack of genuine security benefits.
  • /UBAN LIST output now includes the time the ban was created (#1725, #1755, thanks @Mikaela and @mogad0n!)
  • Added support for running as a Type=notify systemd service (#1733)
  • Added a warning to help users detect incorrect uses of /QUOTE (#1530)

Fixed

  • The +M (only registered users can speak) channel mode did not work; this has been fixed (#1696, thanks @Mikaela!)
  • A channel /RENAME that only changed the case of the channel would delete the channel registration; this has been fixed (#1751, thanks @Mikaela!)
  • Fixed allow-truncation: true not actually allowing truncation of overlong lines (#1766, thanks @tacerus!)
  • Fixed several pagination bugs in CHATHISTORY (#1676, thanks @emersion!)
  • Fixed support for kicking multiple users from a channel on the same line, the TARGMAX 005 parameter that advertises this, and the default kick message (#1748, #1777, #1776), thanks @ProgVal!)
  • Fixed /SAMODE on a channel not producing a snomask (#1787, thanks @mogad0n, @ajaspers!)
  • Adding +f to a channel with SAMODE used to require channel operator privileges on the receiving channel; this has been fixed (#1825, thanks @Mikaela!)
  • Fixed parameters sent with 697 ERR_LISTMODEALREADYSET and 698 ERR_LISTMODENOTSET (#1727, thanks @kylef!)
  • Fixed parameter sent with 696 ERR_INVALIDMODEPARAM (#1773, thanks @kylef!)
  • Fixed handling of channel mode +k with an empty parameter (#1774, #1775, thanks @ProgVal!)
  • WHOWAS with an empty string as the parameter now produces an appropriate error response (#1703, thanks @kylef!)
  • Fixed error response to an empty realname on the USER line (#1778, thanks @ProgVal!)
  • Fixed /UBAN ADD of a NUH mask (i.e. a k-line) not killing affected clients (#1736, thanks @mogad0n!)
  • Fixed buggy behavior when +i is configured as a default mode for channels (#1756, thanks @Mikaela!)
  • Fixed issues with channels.operator-only-creation not respecting /SAJOIN or always-on clients (#1757)
  • Protocol-breaking operator vhosts are now disallowed during config validation (#1722)
  • Fixed error message associated with /NS PASSWD on a nonexistent account (#1738, thanks @Mikaela!)
  • Fixed an incorrect CHATHISTORY fail message (#1731, thanks @ProgVal!)
  • Fixed a panic on an invalid configuration case (#1714, thanks @erikh!)

Changed

  • Upgraded the draft/register capability to the latest draft/account-registration iteration (#1740)
  • Unregistered users with +v or higher can now speak in +R (registered-only) channels (#1715, thanks @Mikaela and @ajaspers!)
  • For always-on clients with at least one active connection, 338 RPL_WHOISACTUALLY now displays an arbitrarily chosen client IP address (#1650, thanks @MystaraTheGreat!)
  • # can no longer be used in new account names and nicknames, or as the RELAYMSG separator (#1679)
  • The oragono.io/nope capability was renamed to ergo.chat/nope (#1793)

Removed

  • never is no longer accepted as a value of the replay-joins NickServ setting (/NS SET replay-joins); user accounts which enabled this setting have been reverted to the default value of commands-only (#1676)

v2.7.0

Choose a tag to compare

We're pleased to be publishing Ergo 2.7.0, our first official release under our new name of Ergo. This release contains bug fixes and minor enhancements.

This release includes changes to the config file format, all of which are fully backwards-compatible and do not require updating the file before upgrading. This release includes no changes to the database format.

Because the name of the executable has changed from oragono to ergo (ergo.exe on Windows), you may need to update your system configuration (e.g., scripts or systemd unit files that reference the executable).

Many thanks to @ajaspers and @jesopo for contributing patches, to @ajaspers, @ChrisTX, @emersion, @jwheare, @kylef, @Mikaela, @mogad0n, and @ProgVal for reporting issues and helping test, and to our translators for contributing translations.

Changed

  • The project was renamed from "Oragono" to "Ergo" (#897, thanks to everyone who contributed feedback or voted in the poll)

Config changes

  • Entries in server.listeners now take a new key, min-tls-version, that can be used to set the minimum required TLS version; the recommended default value is 1.2 (#1611, thanks @ChrisTX!)
  • Added max-conns (maximum connection count) and max-conn-lifetime (maximum lifetime of a connection before it is cycled) to datastore.mysql (#1622)
  • Added massmessage operator capability to allow sending NOTICEs to all connected users (#1153, #1629, thanks @jesopo!)

Security

  • If require-sasl.enabled is set to true, tor-listeners.require-sasl will be automatically set to true as well (#1636)
  • It is now possible to set the minimum required TLS version, using the min-tls-version key in listener configuration
  • Configurations that require SASL but allow user registration now produce a warning (#1637)

Added:

  • Operators with the correct permissions can now send "mass messages", e.g. /NOTICE $$* will send a NOTICE to all users (#1153, #1629, thanks @jesopo!)
  • Operators can now extend the maximum (non-tags) length of the IRC line using the server.max-line-len configuration key. This is not recommended for use outside of "closed-circuit" deployments where IRC operators have full control of all client software. (#1651)

Fixed

  • RELAYMSG now sends a full NUH ("nick-user-host"), instead of only the relay nickname, as the message source (#1647, thanks @ProgVal, @jwheare, and @Mikaela!)
  • Fixed a case where channels would remain visible in /LIST after unregistration (#1619, thanks @ajaspers!)
  • Fixed incorrect tags on JOIN lines in +u ("auditorium") channels (#1642)
  • Fixed an issue where LUSERS counts could get out of sync (#1617)
  • It was impossible to add a restricted set of snomasks to an operator's permissions; this has been fixed (#1618)
  • Fixed incorrect language in NS INFO responses (#1627, thanks @ajaspers!)
  • Fixed a case where the REGISTER command would emit an invalid error message (#1633, thanks @ajaspers!)
  • Fixed snomasks displaying in a nondeterministic order (#1669, thanks @Mikaela!)

Removed

  • Removed the draft/resume-0.5 capability, and the associated RESUME and BRB commands (#1624)

Internal

  • Optimized MySQL storage of direct messages (#1615)
