Hi List Readers!
„We proudly present ngIRCd 19!“ – so here it is, the next stable release of ngIRCd!
There have been a few last fixes since the release candidate, for example the „SyslogFacility“ configuration variable should really work now and you can use GCC 2.7.2 again to build it [yeah, I know, who cares – but indeed a few do, including me ;-)].
Besides these fixes, ngIRCd 19 is the most usable release in combination with Anope IRC services ever: lots of enhancements and fixes went in, in addition to an updated Anope protocol module that works with Anope 1.9.6 released in early February (see included ./doc/Services.txt and ./contrib/Anope/README files for details).
The flood protection and „abuse prevention behavior“ has been greatly enhanced, for example by introducing new limits for channel ban and invite lists (MODE +b/+I) and other list replies (LIST, WHO, WHOIS, WHOWAS). And there are new commands (like GLINE and KLINE), new user modes (R, C) and channel modes (r, R), and channel exception lists (e) have been implemented as well. Lots of commands have been enhanced to better follow the RFC-specified and/or well known syntax and behavior (MODE, LINKS, WHO, LUSERS, …).
Please read the NEWS and ChangeLog files for the whole story:

Today I prepared the first release candidate for the next release of ngIRCd: version 19~rc1.
Since the last release back in July, there have been lots of enhancements, new features, and bug fixes. Thanks to all testers, bug reporters and contributors!
There is support for more user modes (like „C“), channel modes (like „R“), IRC commands (like GLINE and KLINE), much better flood and overload protection, and an updated protocol module for Anope IRC services 1.9.6.
Please have a look at the GIT history or the NEWS and ChangeLog files:
This is our first release candidate; not the final release. So keep in mind that there can be bugs: please report all problems you encounter, to the mailing list or our bug tracker — thanks!

There are source packages, GnuPG signatures, and a binary package for Mac OS X.
And I updated my unofficial Debian packages as well.
