release of Eggdrop 1.8.0 RC2!

Thanks to all who contributed the numerous bug reports and assisted in

All in all, 26 issues were submitted (and fixed!) in response to RC1:

*BSD, and other general cross-compiling issues. Eggdrop should now compile
out-of-the-box under Cygwin; the instructions have been added to the
- Unfortunately, we had to remove the little known "flood-size" feature for
1.8.0 but we hope to reintroduce it in 1.8.1 with a slightly better

Thanks to your support, we're expecting RC2 will be the final RC for 1.8.0.
Barring any surprises, look for the next (hopefully stable) release
sometime in the next two weeks. Until then, RC2 can be downloaded via the
official Eggheads FTP ( or
Github ( See you then!
