UnrealIRCd 5.0.0-rc1 released

Post by Syzop »

Hi everyone,

I'm pleased to announce 5.0.0-rc1, which is the first Release Candidate for UnrealIRCd 5. There will be no module API changes anymore and no new features will be added in the "release candidate" stage. Focus is 100% on fixing bugs and have a stable UnrealIRCd 5 release in December 2019. You can help us a lot by testing this release. If you do, please report any issues on https://bugs.unrealircd.org/.

The full release notes are available here.

Changes between 5.0.0-beta1 and 5.0.0-rc1
  • New module manager now deals properly with HTTPS timeouts.
  • The automated tests were expanded a lot and now test more than 80 different commands and features
  • Quite some fixes with regards to slightly wrong numeric output
  • Windows: if you install as a service it now runs with NetworkService credentials rather than LocalSystem, for increased security.
  • Fixes in require module { }
  • WARNING: if you are using anope, then be sure to run anope 2.0.7 or later with the unreal4 protocol module.
As always, you can download UnrealIRCd from https://www.unrealircd.org/
