Release Notes: User modes "c" (show connect/disconnect NOTICEs, required for e.g. BOPM) and "x" (hostname cloaking) have been implemented. Support for user authentication using PAM has been added. New configuration options "NoPAM", "NoZeroConf", and "SyslogFacility" were supplemented. The debug mode has been enhanced; the daemon can dump its internal state now. The power of IRC operators has been raised: now they can use MODE on any channel and always change channel modes.
Release Notes: The "WEBIRC" command, used by some Web IRC systems, and a new channel mode "secure connections only" have been implemented. The connection statistics displayed on login have been enhanced, and the limit of maximum configured IRC operators has been removed. Fixes for the build system, the documentation, and the daemon itself have been committed as well.
Release Notes: IRC operators are (optionally) allowed to connect and disconnect remote servers now. The SQUIT command has been enhanced to be usable for IRC operators too. A simple command throttling scheme has been implemented. SSL-only configurations are possible now, and quite a few bugs have been fixed.
Release Notes: A remotely triggerable crash in SSL/TLS code has been corrected, server list announcement has been fixed, and error handling on compressed links has been enhanced.
Release Notes: Support for individual channel keys for pre-defined channels has been added. The limit of pre-defined channels has been removed. The creation of modeless pre-defined channels is possible now. The INFO command now reports the compile time. Other minor bugs have been fixed.
Release Notes: SSL encrypted client-server and server-server links using OpenSSL or GNUTLS have been implemented, support for IRC services has been added, and server-local channels are supported now. As usual, many minor enhancements and bugfixes are included.

Release Notes: WHOIS has been enhanced to display the "signon time" of users. Two new IRC commands have been added: "WALLOPS" and "STATS u". Configuration variables were added to define the maximum nick name length, to bind the daemon to a specific network interface, and to declare configured servers as "passive".
