So, we got a little distracted and neglected to email the last two
release notifications to you- but don't worry, we still love you! Please
consider this your official notification of the Eggdrop v1.9.0 release
candidates 1 through 3! Here is a quick summary of what you missed:
The major changes in the release include:
- CAP support, with native support for some IRCv3 features
- SASL authentication support
- A Twitch module
- Away-status tracking
- PBKDF2 hashing for password storage in the userfile (Make sure
you read the docs for this one, or you may break your userfile!)
- A new ident module with oidentd support
- The listen command now takes an optional IP; allowing you to
listen on multiple IPs at the same time
- ISUPPORT / RAW 005 parsing is now possible. There is still work
to be done in the future to automatically integrate some of these values
into how Eggdrop interacts with the server, but for now they are
available for you to use via the Tcl interface
These additions mean extra config file settings to use them, so while
your old config file will still work, you may want to consider using the
new eggdrop.conf included with this release, or at least comparing files
to see the new changes.
If you were worried, fear not- Tcl scripts written for v1.6 and v1.8
should still function with the v1.9 series of Eggdrop.
We also want to make sure we thank our unofficial test force/guinea pigs
Lord255, PeGaSuS, and WildCraze- they were instrumental in helping us
test new features, identify bugs, and by providing feedback on general
approaches. Thank you! (Want to help out? Ask in #eggdrop on Freenode!)
See the NEWS file for a rough overview of what changed, potential
incompatibilities and upgrade instructions. Or doc/Changes1.8 for a full
list of changes.
This is a RELEASE CANDIDATE, so we highly appreciate any testing and bug
reporting we can get. You can expect a follow-up release candidate if
necessary soon, or the final release of this version.
Please report bugs by visiting us on #eggdrop on the Freenode IRC
Network or by using https://github.com/eggheads/eggdrop/issues.
