1 fabian 1.2 NEWS 21 Jan 2000
2 fabian 1.1
3 fabian 1.2 Well, after downloading new version of eggdrop you migth wonder what has changed
4     since the last version you used. Please note, that this in not an complete
5     updates file, it just covers the main and important changes. For a complete list
6     of all changes in 1.5 please see doc/UPDATES1.5
7    
8     After you've read this document it might be also usefull for you to read INSTALL,
9     README, BOTNET, MODULES and tcl-commands.doc so you will be up-to-date. Please
10     note that we wont give you any support if you haven't even looked at them (most
11     problems are covered by them).

14    
15     So, now, what's new?
16     --------------------
17    
18     Since Eggdrop 1.4.x
19    
20     !CHANNELS
21     Support for IRCNET !channels was added to eggdrop. Also this might be still a bit
22     buggy, it should work basically. We appreciate bug reports!
23    
24     ASYNCHRONOUS DNS MODULE
25     Eggdrop 1.5.1 is shipped with a new module, the dns module. It replaces those old
26     ns-lookups performed by eggdrop which could halt the whole bot during a time-out.
27     We also added a new tcl command 'dnslookup', so scripts can look up IP's and
28     hostname now asynchronously, too.
29    
30     +/-NODESYNCH
31     This new channel setting replaces the old 'allow-desync' setting from global to
32     channel functionality. This setting is usefull if you use some kind of chanserv
33     or if you don't care about your channel being desnych.
34    
35     NICK LENGTH
36     To support longer nicknames as some irc servers do (dalnet I think) a settings was
37     added for this one (nick-len).
38    
39     PENALTY CALCULATION
40     Eggdrop calculates penalty points on IRCNET now, so it won't flood itself off anymore.
41    
42     SHARE MODULE
43     Share module got a new setting now (override-bots) which allows hub bots to
44     override the leafs bot setting (botadress, telnet port and password). Please note,
45     that this won't work with a 1.4 or even 1.3 bot.
46    
47     TCL COMMANDS
48     * All three commands to add stuff to the queus (puthelp, putserv and putquick)
49     support the '-next' parameter now which pushes data to the front of the queues.
50     * An command to calculate md5 checksums was added (md5).
51     * To support the new asynch dns module, the command 'dnslookup' was added.
52    
53     TRAFFIC ACCOUNTING
54     Eggdrop counts the whole traffic which it generates and receives through irc,botnet and
55     dcc now. You can access these statistica via the dcc command '.traffic'. Please
56     note, that the counter gets reset every time a restart is done.
57    
58     TRANSFER / FILESYS MODULE
59     The filesys and transfer modules have changed completely. Both can handle now
60     unlimited filename lengths and description sizes. Incomplete downloads from the
61     bot can be resumed now.
62     The db format of the filesys module was also changed to remove the limits imposed
63     by the old format. There's nothing special for you to do as the old db is
64     automatically converted to the new format when you first access it. You won't be
65     able to downgrade to older versions after this though, so maybe you'll want to
66     make a backup first.
