27 fabian 1.3
28 guppy 1.10 Changes made to Eggdrop 1.6.x from Eggdrop1.4.x
29 fabian 1.2
30     !CHANNELS
31 fabian 1.3
32     Support for IRCNET !channels was added to eggdrop. Also this
33     might be still a bit buggy, it should work basically. We
34     appreciate bug reports!
35 fabian 1.2
36 fabian 1.4 +/-NODESYNCH
37    
38     This new channel setting replaces the old 'allow-desync' setting
39     from global to channel functionality. This setting is usefull if
40     you use some kind of chanserv or if you don't care about your
41 johoho 1.7 channel being desynch.
42 fabian 1.4
43 fabian 1.2 ASYNCHRONOUS DNS MODULE
44 fabian 1.3
45 guppy 1.10 Eggdrop 1.6 is shipped with a new module, the dns module. It
46 fabian 1.3 replaces those old dns-lookups performed by eggdrop which could
47     halt the whole bot during a time-out. We also added a new tcl
48     command 'dnslookup', so scripts can look up IP's and hostname now
49     asynchronously, too.
50 fabian 1.2
51 johoho 1.6 COMPRESS MODULE
52    
53     A new module called compress was introduced to eggdrop now. It
54 tothwolf 1.9 provides gzip support to eggdrop (via tcl commands) and enables
55 johoho 1.6 compressed userfile transfer.
56    
57     DCC COMMANDS
58 fabian 1.3
59 fabian 1.4 * ".nick" was renamed to ".handle". ".nick" will still be kept
60     up to version 1.8.
61     * ".chnick" was renamed to ".chhandle". ".chnick" will still be kept
62     up to version 1.8.
63 johoho 1.6 * .binds supports now wildcards
64    
65     DOCUMENTATION
66    
67     A lot has happend to the documentation, nearly every file was changed
68     or modified, so keep a look at them. Also we discovered html now and
69     full html documentation is avilable now in doc/html.
70     Additionally all possible settings in eggdrop are documented in
71     doc/settings
72    
73     EGGDROP.CONF.DIST
74    
75 tothwolf 1.9 eggdrop.conf.dist was replaced with three files, eggdrop.simple.conf,
76 johoho 1.6 eggdrop.advanced.conf and eggdrop.complete.conf. This allows users to
77     choose how detailed they want to configure their bot. eggdrop.simple.conf
78     just contains the simplest configuration options, where
79     eggdrop.advanced.conf goes more into details and eggdrop.complete.conf
80     contains all possible settings.
81    
82     LOGFILES
83    
84     Eggdrop uses strftime now to support different log files suffixes. The
85     new setting is 'logfile-suffix'
86 fabian 1.2
87     NICK LENGTH
88 fabian 1.3
89     To support longer nicknames as some irc servers do (dalnet I
90     think) a settings was added for this one (nick-len).
91 fabian 1.2
92     SHARE MODULE
93 fabian 1.3
94     Share module got a new setting now (override-bots) which allows
95     hub bots to override the leafs bot setting (botadress, telnet
96     port and password). Please note, that this won't work with a 1.4
97     or even 1.3 bot.
98 fabian 1.2
99     TCL COMMANDS
100 fabian 1.3
101 johoho 1.6 * chnick was renamed to chhandle. The use of chnick is deprecated.
102     chnick will is still accessible if you load compat.tcl
103 fabian 1.3 * All three commands to add stuff to the queus (puthelp, putserv
104 fabian 1.4 and putquick) support the '-next' parameter now which pushes
105     data to the front of the queues.
106 johoho 1.7 * A command to calculate md5 checksums was added (md5).
107 fabian 1.3 * To support the new asynch dns module, the command 'dnslookup'
108 johoho 1.6 was added.

118     * fileresend command was added to support mIRC's dcc resume feature
119 guppy 1.8 * a new bind called 'NEED' was added which can be used to trap
120     events like need-op or need-unban but via a bind
121 johoho 1.6
122     For more information about this changed or added tcl commands see
123     doc/tcl-commands.doc
124 fabian 1.2
125     TRAFFIC ACCOUNTING
126 fabian 1.3
127     Eggdrop counts the whole traffic which it generates and receives
128     through irc,botnet and dcc now. You can access these statistica
129     via the dcc command '.traffic'. Please note, that the counter
130     gets reset every time a restart is done.
131 fabian 1.2
132     TRANSFER / FILESYS MODULE
133 fabian 1.3
134     The filesys and transfer modules have changed completely. Both
135     can handle now unlimited filename lengths and description sizes.
136     Incomplete downloads from the bot can be resumed now.
137     The db format of the filesys module was also changed to remove
138     the limits imposed by the old format. There's nothing special for
139     you to do as the old db is automatically converted to the new
140     format when you first access it. You won't be able to downgrade
141     to older versions after this though, so maybe you'll want to make
142     a backup first.
