The XeroMem IRC Network Routing Team has performed major software updates on the network. Here’s a quick update:
- UnrealIRCd v5.0.9 upgraded to UnrealIRCd v6.0.4
- Anope v2.0.9 upgraded to Anope v2.0.11
The UnrealIRCd Team announced and made UnrealIRCd 5 an old-stable release, In doing so, they also announced the upcoming End of Life for UnrealIRCd 5 as July 2023. In an effort to stay current, we’ve updated to the more-recently released UnrealIRCd 6. Changes included a complete overhaul of the logging and snomask features, improved support for IRCv3, GeoIP database management, improved cloaking modules, updated configuration file design, and improved overall stability.
