UnrealIRCd 6.0.5-rc2 available for testing

Post by Syzop »

The second release candidate for 6.0.5 is now available for testing. If you have some time during the holidays and would like to try it out, that would be great. Please report any bugs you find at https://bugs.unrealircd.org/. On *NIX you can use the command ./unrealircd upgrade --rc to upgrade to this RC.

This release adds experimental JSON-RPC support which can be used by a web panel or other interface (this is work in progress). There's a new TLINE command to test *LINES, useful for e.g. /TLINE ~C:NL. The ./unrealircd restart command now checks the config file and refuses the restart if there is a config error. Logging to files has been improved and some other enhancements. One notable change is that by default we now require TLSv1.2 (or higher) for IRC clients and a modern cipher. This should be no problem for clients using any reasonably new SSL/TLS library (from 2014 or later). Another notable change is that servers that have websockets now also need to load the "webserver" module (so you may have to edit your configuration file).

See the release notes for information on all new features and fixes.

Compared to 6.0.5-rc1 this 6.0.5-rc2 has some nice ./unrealircd script enhancements (see release notes) and various small bugfixes

As always, you can download UnrealIRCd from unrealircd.org.
