Eggdrop v1.8.4 Release Notes

Release Date: 2018-12-27 // over 5 years ago
  • It appears the small fixes made across 3 release candidates have settled in nicely, and all the little eggheads stayed off the naughty list, so we are pleased as punch to announce Eggdrop v1.8.4 has gone STABLE. Hooray!

    ๐Ÿš€ The major changes in the release include:

    • ๐Ÿ‘€ Lots of work on the compile process for less-commonly seen systems (SunOS, DragonFly, etc), and making Eggdrop more compiler-friendly in general
    • โž• Added and enhanced SSL/TLS warnings to make troubleshooting easier
    • Raised the ban expiration limit from 1 year to 5 years, and added a new %y field to +ban
    • Lots of work on TLS bot links
    • ๐Ÿ‘Œ Improved/clarified botnet TLS documentation- go read it!
    • ๐Ÿ–จ Made TLS fingerprints persistent across a botnet after relinking
    • Sterilized a LOT of small, lingering bugs.

    ๐Ÿš€ Again, thank you to all those who helped us test out the release candidates, and a special thanks to mortmann for joining the development team. Everyone's help was invaluable!

  • ๐Ÿ›  Thanks to Harekiet for identifying an ssl variable that was not properly #ifdef'd out, causing a compiler error if TLS was not detected/enabled for the compile. Fixed!
