UnrealIRCd & 5.2.3 released

Post by Syzop »

Two new releases today: UnrealIRCd and UnrealIRCd 5.2.3. Both of them fix a number of issues.

UPDATE: A few hours after 6.0.1 release, with only 12 downloads by users, was released which includes an important fix for the way extended bans are synced to old UnrealIRCd 5 servers.

The UnrealIRCd 5 series will receive bug fixes until July 1, 2022 and security fixes until July 1, 2023.
To read what has changed between 5.2.2 and 5.2.3, see the release notes.

UnrealIRCd 6
If you are already running 6.0.0, then see the list of changes between 6.0.0 and in the release notes. If you are new to UnrealIRCd 6 then continue reading below:

UnrealIRCd 6 comes with a completely redone logging system (with optional JSON support), named extended bans, four new IRCv3 features, GeoIP support and remote includes support built-in.
Additionally, things are more customizable such as what gets sent to which snomask. All the +vhoaq channel modes are now modular as well, handy for admins who don't want or need halfops or +q/+a. For WHOIS it is now customizable in detail who gets to see what.

Many 3rd party modules have not been upgraded yet for use in UnrealIRCd 6. If you use these, or if you are a bit cautious with upgrading in general, then just stay with UnrealIRCd 5 for now.
