The next stable release of ngIRCd has been published: ngIRCd 13.
Starting with this release, the version numering scheme has been
canged: The leading "0" is stripped off, so we have
"<major>[.<minor>]" now. So ngIRCd 13 is the direct successor of
The most prominet changes are support for SSL encrypted client-server
and server-server links using OpenSSL or GNUTLS (see doc/SSL.txt),
support for IRC services (see doc/Services.txt), and server-local
channels with prefix "&". And as usual, lots of minor enhancements and
bug fixes are included as well.
Since the release candidate 13~rc1 only minor changes have been
committed, mostly to enhance the documentation and to fix the testsuite.
Thanks a lot to all contributors!
