UnrealIRCd released

Post by Syzop »

Hi everyone,
This is a small update for the 5.2.0 release. In channels, spamfilters of type 'p' were run instead of type 'c'.
Although this is not a major issue for many of us, as spamfilter are often placed on both ('pc'), there is now this dot release to make sure new installs don't have this bug.
Existing 5.2.0 users can easily fix this issue without the need for a restart, simply run: ./unrealircd hot-patch wrongspamfilter520
Below is the original 5.2.0 announcement.

5.2.0 is out!
UnrealIRCd 5.2.0 comes with lots of new features but the 2 top new features are: an improved and more flexible anti-flood block and channel history which can now be stored encrypted on disk and allows clients to fetch hundreds/thousands of lines. See the release notes for full details.

For more information on the end of 5.0.x and upgrading to 5.2.x, see FAQ: About the new 5.2.x series. In short: this is a big bump similar to what happened between 4.0.x and 4.2.x.

As always, you can download UnrealIRCd from https://www.unrealircd.org/

Reminder: UnrealIRCd 4 is no longer supported
UnrealIRCd 4 is no longer supported. Admins must upgrade to UnrealIRCd 5.
If you are upgrading from 4.x to 5.x then check out What's new in UnrealIRCd 5 and Upgrading from 4.x. In any case, be sure to upgrade your services package first! (if you use any).
