server protocol
- Allow overriding opers (with the new extension) to op themselves on channels.
- Allow RSFNC to change a nickname's capitalization only.
- Add channel ban forwarding <mask>$<channel> much like ircd-seven. Local use
of this is controlled by the channel::use_forward config option.
- Add ENCAP TGINFO to propagate IP addresses that exceeded target change
limits (these get a lower limit when they reconnect).
- Consider bogus CTCP ACTION messages (without action text) CTCP (for
cmode +C).
- Send ERR_TOOMANYCHANNELS for each channel join that fails due to channel
- Add account-notify client capability to notify clients about logins and
logouts of users in common channels. See doc/account-notify.txt.
- Add extended-join client capability to add account name and ircname to JOIN.
- Add topic TS and channel TS constraints for /LIST (T<, T>, C<, C>
parameters as in some other servers).
- Disallow wildcarded nicknames in "hunted" parameters like /stats and /motd.
- Disallow mIRC italics in channel names when disable_fake_channels.
- Add AUTHENTICATE EXTERNAL support, allows SASL authentication using a
certificate fingerprint.
- Allow channel::kick_on_split_riding to protect channels with mlocked keys.
- The NICKLEN token in 005 now only specifies the maximum usable nick length.
The MAXNICKLEN token specifies the maximum nick length any user can have.
- Disallow $ in usernames as this may cause problems with ban forwarding.
- Add an error message (numeric 743) if a ban mask is invalid.
- Extract the underlying IPv4 address from 6to4 and Teredo IPv6 addresses.
Show it in a remote /whois and check channel bans, quiets, D:lines and
K:lines against it. Note that ban exceptions and auth{} blocks are not
- Allow normal users to perform /privs on themselves, showing some privileges
from the auth{} block.
- Add away-notify client capability, see doc/away-notify.txt.
- Add rate limit for high-bandwidth commands, in particular /who <channel>.
- Rate limit /away to help avoid flooding via away-notify.
- Apply colour stripping (cmode +c) and CTCP checking (cmode +C) to messages
to @/+ channel as well.
- Channel mode +c (and other places that disallow colour codes) now also strip
ASCII 4 (a different kind of colour code).
- Add operspy for /list.
- Add a server notice to snomask +b if a user exceeds target change limits.
- Add missing server notice for kills from RSFNC and SVSLOGIN.
- Add /stats C to show information about dynamically loaded server
- Add support for linking using SSL certificate fingerprints as the link
credential rather than the traditional password pair.
- Add m_roleplay extension, provides various roleplay commands.
- Add override extension, umode +p oper override for opers with oper:override
permission, with accountability notices and timeout. Note that opers cannot
op themselves if there are older servers on the network.
- Add channel::disable_local_channels config option.
- Add support for IPv6 DNSBLs. A new "type" option specifies the IP version(s)
for which each DNSBL should be checked.
- Make flood control settings configurable by those who know exactly what they
are doing.
- Add serverinfo::nicklen config option to limit the nick length for local
users. Different values of this option do not break the server protocol.
- Add extb_usermode extension, $m:+-<modes> extban matching against umodes.
- Extend extb_oper extension to allow matching against oper privileges.
- Add m_remove extension, /remove command as in ircd-seven.
- Add general::away_interval to allow configuring /away rate limiting.
- Add listener::defer_accept to delay accepting a connection until the client
sends data. This depends on kernel support. It may break BOPM checking.
- In mkpasswd, default to SHA512-based crypt instead of MD5-based crypt.
- Add --with-custom-branding and --with-custom-version configure options to
help forks/patchsets distinguish themselves.
- Change version control from Mercurial to GIT.
- Ensure SIGHUP and SIGINT keep working after a SIGINT restart.
- Add --enable-fhs-paths configure option to allow installing into a more
FHS-like hierarchy.
-- charybdis-3.3.0
server protocol
- Add new BAN command, for propagated network-wide bans (K/X:lines and RESVs).
These will burst to new servers as they are introduced, and will stay in sync
across the whole network (new BAN capab).
- Add new MLOCK command, to implement ircd-side channel mode locks. This allows
services to send out a list of mode letters for a given channel which may not
be changed, preventing mode fights between services and client bots (new MLOCK
- New RPL_QUIETLIST(728) and RPL_ENDOFQUIETLIST(729) numerics are used for the
quiet (+q) list, instead of overloading the ban list numerics.
- Users may no longer change the topic of a -t channel if they cannot send to
- Add help for EXTBAN, describing the syntax of extended bans in general, as
well as the most common types.
- Changed AWAY messages are now propagated to other servers. Previously, AWAY
was only propagated when the user was not already away.
- Channel mode +c (and other places that disallow colour codes) now also strip
ASCII 29 (mIRC 7 italics).
- Add auto-accept for user mode +g (callerid): Messaging a user while set +g
will automatically add them to your accept list.
- Add target change for channels. It applies to unopped, unvoiced and unopered
users. This has the effect of stopping spambots which join, message and part
many channels at a time.
- Show RPL_WHOISLOGGEDIN in /whowas as well as in /whois entries. This adds at
most an additional 0.5MB of memory usage.
- Add general::use_propagated_bans to switch the new BAN system on or off.
- Add general::default_ident_timeout, to control the timeout for identd (auth)
- Add channel::channel_target_change to switch the new channel target change limits
on or off.
- Fix class::number_per_ident so that it also applies to connections without
- Change the example sslport option to 6697, which is more standard than 9999.
- The custom channel mode API has been rewritten, allowing these modules to work
correctly when reloaded, or loaded from the config file.
- The EFNet RBL is now recommended, instead of DroneBL.
- Remove the unsupported modules directory.
- Numerous bug fixes and code cleanups.
- In mkpasswd, default to MD5 crypt instead of insecure DES.
-- charybdis-3.2.0
server protocol
- Apply +z to messages blocked by +b and +q as well. (new EOPMOD capab)
- Add new topic command ETB, allowing services to set topic+setter+ts always.
(new EOPMOD capab)

- Add cmode +C (no CTCP) from ircd-seven.
- Flood checking has been reworked.
- Fix op-moderate (cmode +z) for channel names with '@'.
- Add CERTFP support, allowing users to connect with an SSL client
certificate and propagating the certificate fingerprint to other servers.
Services packages can use this to identify users based on client
- Maintain the list of recently used targets (for the target change
anti-spam system) in most-recently-used order, overwriting the least
recently used target with a new one. This should be friendlier to users
without giving spambots anything.
- Do not require target change slots for replying to the last five users to
send a private message, notice or invite.
- Apply target change restrictions to /invite.
- Apply umode +g/+R restrictions to /invite, with the difference that
instead of sending "<user> is messaging you" the invite is let through
since that is just as noisy.
- Add /rehash throttles to clear throttling.
- Send all server notices resulting from a remote /rehash to the oper.
- '\s' for space is now part of the matching, not a substitution at xline
time, fixing various issues with it.
- Display o:line "nickname" in oper-up server notices.
- Fix sendq exceeded snotes for servers.
- SCAN UMODES: default list-max to 500, like a global WHO.
- Ignore directory names in MODRELOAD to avoid crashing if it is a core
module and the path is incorrect.
- Tweaks to spambot checks.

in an sqlite database instead of a flatfile and does the storage in a
helper process. Use bin/bantool -i to import your old bans into the
-- charybdis-3.1.0
- Remove TS5 support. No TS5 servers are permitted in a network with
charybdis 3.1.0 or newer, except jupes.
- Replace oper flags by privilege sets (privsets). This adds an extra
level of indirection between oper flags and operator blocks. /stats O
(capital O) shows the configured privsets.
- Update libratbox and ssld from upstream and use it better.
- Add auth_user to auth{}. This allows specifying a username:password instead
of just a password in PASS, so that a fixed user@host is not necessary
for a specific auth{} block.
- Add need_ssl to auth{} and operator{}. This makes these blocks reject
the user if not connected via SSL.
- Allow modules to provide simple channel modes without parameter.
- Remove restrictions on CNAME in the resolver.
- Make the resolver remember nonresponsive nameservers.
- Move nick collision notices from +s to +k.

- SCAN UMODES GLOBAL NO-LIST MASK <mask> is no longer an operspy command.
- Also apply floodcount to messages to remote clients (except services).
- Remove user@server messages to local users. Sending such messages to
remote servers is still possible, for securely messaging pseudoservers
whether service{}'ed or not. The special oper-only syntax opers@server
remains as well.
- Allow /list on a named +p channel. A full /list already included +p channels.
- Add operspy /topic.
- For remote rehashes, send error messages to the requesting oper as well.

- Make PRIVMSG/NOTICE behave as CPRIVMSG/CNOTICE automatically if possible.
- Allow +z messages from outside if a channel is -n.
- Allow coloured part reasons in -c channels.
- Add ircu-like WHOX support. This allows requesting specific information
in /who and allows obtaining services login name for all users in a
channel. XChat/Conspire use WHOX to update away status more efficiently.
- Allow opers and shide_exempt users to see hopcounts even if flatten_links
is on.
- Rework ip_cloaking.
- Add the IP address to userlog, as in ircd-ratbox 3.0.

using OpenSSL's built in compression, but also works with older versions
of OpenSSL.

a variable with NULL causing a crash on some systems.
- Document some extensions in charybdis-oper-guide.
