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).

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.
