1 1.8 (2018-02-04):
2 - prevent nick collisions by only setting the nick after the server
3 accepted it and print a message about change to server log.
4 - remove query.sh.
5 - add OpenBSD pledge(2) support.
6 - fix QUIT message string.
7 - raw IRC output to stdout.
8 - add quit command (/q [string]).
9 - write timestamp in outfile as UNIX timestamp (UTC+0).
10 - server host (-s) doesn't default to irc.freenode and is now required.
11 - add option (-u) to connect directly to a UNIX domain socket, this
12 is useful for tunneling connections.
13 - remove "in" file when leaving a channel (enabled commented code).
14 - remove "in" files on exit.
15 - use IRC_MAX (512), instead of PIPE_BUF (4096) on most systems.
16 PIPE_BUF is guaranteed to be atleast 512 bytes for atomic operations.
17 - Makefile: always be verbose.
18 - use C99 and -D_DEFAULT_SOURCE
19 - remove obsolete gethostbyname, use getaddrinfo.
20 - IPV6 support.
21 - timeout now uses separate exit statuscode 2.
22 - cleanup:
23 - use arg.h for command-line option parsing.
24 - use sbase util functions (estrtol, eprintf).
25 - use and import OpenBSD strlcpy().
26 - man page typos.
27 - style:
28 - linewrap to 79 characters.
29 - coding style fixes.
30 - non-roman numerals for LICENSE period.
32 1.7 (2013-01-05)
33 - -k now specifies an environment variable that contains the
34 server key. This behaviour has been changed in order to not
35 expose the password in the process list.
36 - Fix parsing of JOIN messages for certain servers.
37 Thanks Ivan Kanakarakis!
38 - Use , rather than _ for slash characters in channel names.
39 As per RFC , is not allowed in a channel name, while _ is.
40 Thanks plomplomplom and Nils Dagsson Moskopp!
42 1.6 (2011-01-31):
43 - fix regression introduced for handling unknown commands
45 1.5 (2011-01-24):
46 - fix channel name comparison in add_channel(), compare lowercase
47 to prevent leaking file descriptors in the long run => Thanks samurai!
48 - only handle commands ii explicitely understands and treat the rest
49 as raw irc (only worked for raw commands in capital lettersin the past) => Thanks samurai!
50 - create in FIFO on receiving a privmsg directly instead of requiring a new
51 /j command first => Thanks Evan Gates
52 this also implies that in FIFOs aren't deleted on channel leaves any longer because
53 this itself creates a channel event again which in turn would recreate the file
54 - minor changes
56 1.4 (2008-08-09):
57 - fix directory traversal on servers that support SAJOIN
58 NOTE: not marking as security relevant as it is only possible to
59 create directories outside (which is of course annoying) of the irc
60 hierarchy but not overwriting arbitrary files with the channel name.
61 - documentation fixes
62 - general cleanup
64 1.3 (2007-07-14):
65 - server messages about users (QUIT,JOIN) will no longer
66 go to the user directories but to the server out file to
67 give an easy method to monitor it and to prevent spamming
68 the irc directory.
70 1.2 (2007-06-23):
71 - Exit on channel creation failure, thanks Michael Prokop
72 - Implemented joining of password protected channels
73 - Removed -v option from the manpage since it's not implemented
