+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
+ limits.
+- 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
+ checked.
+- 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
+ capabilities.
+- 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.
