A modern IRC server (daemon/ircd) written in Go.

Overview

Oragono logo

Oragono is a modern IRC server written in Go. Its core design principles are:

  • Being simple to set up and use
  • Combining the features of an ircd, a services framework, and a bouncer (integrated account management, history storage, and bouncer functionality)
  • Bleeding-edge IRCv3 support, suitable for use as an IRCv3 reference implementation
  • Highly customizable via a rehashable (i.e., reloadable at runtime) YAML config

Oragono is a fork of the Ergonomadic IRC daemon <3

If you want to take a look at a running Oragono instance or test some client code, feel free to play with testnet.oragono.io (TLS on port 6697 or plaintext on port 6667).


Features

  • integrated services: NickServ for user accounts, ChanServ for channel registration, and HostServ for vanity hosts
  • bouncer-like features: storing and replaying history, allowing multiple clients to use the same nickname
  • UTF-8 nick and channel names with rfc7613 (PRECIS)
  • native TLS/SSL support, including support for client certificates
  • yaml configuration
  • updating server config and TLS certificates on-the-fly (rehashing)
  • SASL authentication
  • LDAP support
  • supports multiple languages (you can also set a default language for your network)
  • advanced security and privacy features (support for requiring SASL for all logins, cloaking IPs, and running as a Tor hidden service)
  • an extensible privilege system for IRC operators
  • ident lookups for usernames
  • automated client connection limits
  • passwords stored with bcrypt
  • UBAN, a unified ban system that can target IPs, networks, masks, and registered accounts (KLINE and DLINE are also supported)
  • IRCv3 support
  • a focus on developing with specifications

Quick start guide

Download the latest release from this page: https://github.com/oragono/oragono/releases/latest

Extract it into a folder, then run the following commands:

cp default.yaml ircd.yaml
vim ircd.yaml   # modify the config file to your liking
oragono mkcerts
oragono run     # server should be ready to go!

Note: See the productionizing guide in our manual for recommendations on how to run a production network, including obtaining valid TLS certificates.

Platform Packages

Some platforms/distros also have Oragono packages maintained for them:

Using Docker

A Dockerfile and example docker-compose recipe are available in the distrib/docker directory. Oragono is automatically published to Docker Hub at oragono/oragono. For more information, see the distrib/docker README file.

From Source

You can also install this repo and use that instead! However, keep some things in mind if you go that way:

devel branches are intentionally unstable, containing fixes that may not work, and they may be rebased or reworked extensively.

The master branch should usually be stable, but may contain database changes that either have not been finalised or not had database upgrade code written yet. Don't run master on a live production network.

The stable branch contains the latest release. You can run this for a production version without any trouble.

Building

You'll need an up-to-date distribution of the Go language for your OS and architecture. Once you have that, just clone the repository and run make build. If everything goes well, you should now have an executable named oragono in the base directory of the project.

Configuration

The default config file default.yaml helps walk you through what each option means and changes.

You can use the --conf parameter when launching Oragono to control where it looks for the config file. For instance: oragono run --conf /path/to/ircd.yaml. The configuration file also stores where the log, database, certificate, and other files are opened. Normally, all these files use relative paths, but you can change them to be absolute (such as /var/log/ircd.log) when running Oragono as a service.

Logs

By default, logs go to stderr only. They can be configured to go to a file, or you can use systemd to direct the stderr to the system journal (see the manual for details). The configuration format of logs is designed to be easily pluggable, and is inspired by the logging config provided by InspIRCd.

Passwords

Passwords (for both PASS and oper logins) are stored using bcrypt. To generate encrypted strings for use in the config, use the genpasswd subcommand as such:

oragono genpasswd

With this, you receive a blob of text which you can plug into your configuration file.

Nickname and channel registration

Oragono relies heavily on user accounts to enable its distinctive features (such as allowing multiple clients per nickname). As a user, you can register your current nickname as an account using /msg NickServ register . Once you have done so, you should enable SASL in your clients, ensuring that you will be automatically logged into your account on each connection. This will prevent problems claiming your registered nickname.

Once you have registered your nickname, you can use it to register channels:

  1. Join the channel with /join #channel
  2. Register the channel with /CS REGISTER #channel

After this, your channel will remember the fact that you're the owner, the topic, and any modes set on it!

  • high-availability without s2s/federation

    high-availability without s2s/federation

    #26 is going to be difficult to implement and may impact our ability to rapidly iterate on experimental IRCv3 features. Meanwhile, we know (#237) that a single oragono instance can scale to approximately 10k clients and 2k clients per channel --- enough for most teams / communities.

    Let's explore options for deploying oragono that would be highly available (i.e., resilient to server failure) while maintaining the invariant that at any given time, all clients are connected to a single server (eliminating the need for true s2s). Possible primitives:

    1. A load balancer (haproxy?) that elects a single "live" server, then directs all connections to the live server
    2. Leader election among the cluster so that only one server is "live", with the others remaining hot spares. This is Hashicorp Vault's model: https://www.vaultproject.io/docs/concepts/ha.html

  • support LDAP

    support LDAP

    Hi,

    tl;dr Oragono could have multiple password backends, incl. PAM on UNIXes, libsasl2, or it could talk to LDAP. PAM and libsasl2 are very customizable, but just LDAP would be enough.

    PAM and libsasl2 probably require CGo to be acceptable, but hiding this code behind a build-tag is an option.


    It would be great if username+password could be checked on a backend separate from the rest.

    I run a Samba4 server to serve as a single store of user accounts (both for passwords, and for other generic user account information such as real name).

    This is, on my side, used for:

    • accounts in Prosody for XMPP,
    • accounts in Dovecot for IMAP,
    • accounts in Postfix for SMTP,
    • provide username+password portion handling for an OAuth2 server,
    • log into a Windows with it,
    • log into Gerrit
    • etc

    How?

    • Mostly things go straight into checking password via a direct LDAP bind,
    • sometimes it's LDAP bind+username lookup+actual LDAP bind for password check
    • sometimes things go through PAM towards LDAP,
    • sometimes libsasl2 + LDAP (though it could be libsasl2 + PAM + LDAP., not sure).

    Gecos fields are also populated from LDAP.

    Adding IRC to the mix would be great.

  • VHost System

    VHost System

    I have no strong opinions about prioritization.

    Cloaks should:

    • Be integrated with the account registration system
    • Have no effect on server operators
    • Optionally require a server operator to create?

  • Cloaks

    Cloaks

    It would be great to add the option to define a default cloak for every users, which would replace their real hostname. If I am not mistaken, this is similar to the vhost parameter for opers (?). Being able to attribute a custom cloak to an user would be even better.

    @draft/label tags and commands that never reply

    From #oragono:

    What's the expected behaviour when you send a @draft/label tag on a message that doesn't generate a reply (like CAP END or PONG)? The spec implies the server will send an empty batch, but Ora just ignores it.

    It's a bit nonsensical to label those, but it's a lot easier to just label all outgoing messages than figure out which are sensible things and which aren't...

    oragono thrashes on large numbers of concurrent JOINs to the same channel

    I patched out DanielOaks/irc-stress-test#4 for testing purposes and observed that:

    1. connectflood scales almost linearly, which is nice
    2. Somewhere between 1024 and 4096 clients, chanflood starts to thrash on regenerateMembersCache.

    This situation may not be completely avoidable; if there are n consecutive JOINs to the same channel, we actually do have to send O(n^2) JOIN messages. But, worth looking into.

  • Client ident/username, vHosts & /lusers

    Client ident/username, vHosts & /lusers

    1. If the always-on/bouncer option is enabled for your nickname/account and server restarts then your ident/username (~) is changing to a default by server one. (example- i got an ident of [email protected] when i got connected to the server, i then enabled the always-on option but after a server restart when i reconnected to my bouncer-nickname my ident changed to [email protected]

    2. idea for VHOSTS the offer list to include vhosts like $account.oragono or $nickname.oragono and maybe an option to auto assign a vhost of this type upon authentication/login to the account/nickaname. (example - my username is theflash if i take $account.oragono then my vhost will be theflash.oragono)

    3)An idea for /Lusers command maybe to include line with something like this : i have 15 online(bouncer-users) and 20 offline :) Currently offline bouncer/always-on-users are not being included in the total users

    Great work & thank you for this amazing project. Your time and efforts put into this are much appreciated.

  • Multiple status prefixes on chanel PRIVMSG target results in no such nick

    Multiple status prefixes on chanel PRIVMSG target results in no such nick

    FWIW I do not feel strongly about this behaviour, I noticed it while testing and seems to differ from spec. However feel free to close the issue without resolution if desired.

    From https://modern.ircdocs.horse/#privmsg-message it is specified that PRIVMSG's target may contain one or more channel member prefixes, such as [email protected]#example, when doing so the response is 401 (no such nick).

    If <target> is a channel name, it may be prefixed with one or more channel membership prefix character (@, +, etc) and the message will be delivered only to the members of that channel with the given or higher status in the channel.

    Below contains examples using echo-message.

    Sending message with each prefix:

    C: PRIVMSG @#testers :hi
    C: :[email protected] PRIVMSG @#testers :hi
    
    C: PRIVMSG +#testers :hi
    S: :[email protected] PRIVMSG +#testers :hi
    

    Sending message with both prefixes:

    Hello,

    All modern IRCD has or almost all has this feature when I can add some "link" "words" to be filtered, before it reach the client.

    Block, dline, warn(client & opers). For example.

    This prevents spambots that connect and mp users with some bad links or invitations to others networks.

    advertising SCRAM-SHA-256 breaks irccloud and possibly other clients

    If a server advertises both PLAIN and SCRAM-SHA-256, irccloud attempts SCRAM, but if it fails it doesn't fall back to PLAIN. This breaks authentication for anyone who registered an account on Ergo 2.7 or lower --- we need at least one successful PLAIN authentication in order to generate the SCRAM credentials.

    Accordingly, advertisement of SCRAM-SHA-256 will be disabled in Ergo 2.8; we'll revisit down the line.

    Generally this doesn't matter much, but in the aftermath of https://github.com/ergochat/ergo/issues/1751 everyone already had the mode instead of getting it set so I only saw private notices in query buffer with ChanServ instead of it being announced on the channel.

    I would also like to set it as default option in ircd.yaml.

    UMODE to opt out of channel forwarding

    Currently there is no umode to opt out of channel forwarding documented in /helpop umode. I would prefer to not get joined/forwarded to channels without my knowledge, so I would like to opt-out which is possible on other IRCds supporting forwards in which case there is an error in server tab.

    This is also useful for matrix-appservice-irc which doesn't handle channel renaming and I think it sets that umode everywhere supported.

Releases(v2.7.0)
  • v2.7.0(Jun 8, 2021)

    We're pleased to be publishing Ergo 2.7.0, our first official release under our new name of Ergo. This release contains bug fixes and minor enhancements.

    This release includes changes to the config file format, all of which are fully backwards-compatible and do not require updating the file before upgrading. This release includes no changes to the database format.

    Because the name of the executable has changed from oragono to ergo (ergo.exe on Windows), you may need to update your system configuration (e.g., scripts or systemd unit files that reference the executable).

    Many thanks to @ajaspers and @jesopo for contributing patches, to @ajaspers, @ChrisTX, @emersion, @jwheare, @kylef, @Mikaela, @mogad0n, and @ProgVal for reporting issues and helping test, and to our translators for contributing translations.

    Changed

    • The project was renamed from "Oragono" to "Ergo" (#897, thanks to everyone who contributed feedback or voted in the poll)

    Config changes

    • Entries in server.listeners now take a new key, min-tls-version, that can be used to set the minimum required TLS version; the recommended default value is 1.2 (#1611, thanks @ChrisTX!)
    • Added max-conns (maximum connection count) and max-conn-lifetime (maximum lifetime of a connection before it is cycled) to datastore.mysql (#1622)
    • Added massmessage operator capability to allow sending NOTICEs to all connected users (#1153, #1629, thanks @jesopo!)

    Security

    • If require-sasl.enabled is set to true, tor-listeners.require-sasl will be automatically set to true as well (#1636)
    • It is now possible to set the minimum required TLS version, using the min-tls-version key in listener configuration
    • Configurations that require SASL but allow user registration now produce a warning (#1637)

    Added:

    • Operators with the correct permissions can now send "mass messages", e.g. /NOTICE $$* will send a NOTICE to all users (#1153, #1629, thanks @jesopo!)
    • Operators can now extend the maximum (non-tags) length of the IRC line using the server.max-line-len configuration key. This is not recommended for use outside of "closed-circuit" deployments where IRC operators have full control of all client software. (#1651)

    Fixed

    • RELAYMSG now sends a full NUH ("nick-user-host"), instead of only the relay nickname, as the message source (#1647, thanks @ProgVal, @jwheare, and @Mikaela!)
    • Fixed a case where channels would remain visible in /LIST after unregistration (#1619, thanks @ajaspers!)
    • Fixed incorrect tags on JOIN lines in +u ("auditorium") channels (#1642)
    • Fixed an issue where LUSERS counts could get out of sync (#1617)
    • It was impossible to add a restricted set of snomasks to an operator's permissions; this has been fixed (#1618)
    • Fixed incorrect language in NS INFO responses (#1627, thanks @ajaspers!)
    • Fixed a case where the REGISTER command would emit an invalid error message (#1633, thanks @ajaspers!)
    • Fixed snomasks displaying in a nondeterministic order (#1669, thanks @Mikaela!)

    Removed

    • Removed the draft/resume-0.5 capability, and the associated RESUME and BRB commands (#1624)

  • v2.6.1(Apr 26, 2021)

    Oragono 2.6.1 is a bugfix release, fixing a security issue that is critical for some private server configurations. We regret the oversight.

    The issue affects two classes of server configuration:

    1. Private servers that use server.password (i.e., the PASS command) for protection. If accounts.registration.allow-before-connect is enabled, the REGISTER command can be used to bypass authentication. Affected operators should set this field to false, or upgrade to 2.6.1, which disallows the insecure configuration. (If the field does not appear in the configuration file, the configuration is secure since the value defaults to false when unset.)
    2. Private servers that use accounts.require-sasl for protection. If these servers do not additionally set accounts.registration.enabled to false, the REGISTER command can potentially be used to bypass authentication. Affected operators should set accounts.registration.enabled to false; this recommendation appeared in the operator manual but was not emphasized sufficiently. (Configurations that require SASL but allow open registration are potentially valid, e.g., in the case of public servers that require everyone to use a registered account; accordingly, Oragono 2.6.1 continues to permit such configurations.)

    This release includes no changes to the config file format or the database.

    Many thanks to @ajaspers for reporting the issue.

  • v2.6.0(Apr 18, 2021)

    We're pleased to announce Oragono 2.6.0, a new stable release.

    This release has some user-facing enhancements, but is primarily focused on fixing bugs and advancing the state of IRCv3 standardization (by publishing a release that implements the latest drafts). Some highlights:

    • A new CHATHISTORY API for listing direct message conversations (#1592)
    • The latest proposal for IRC-over-websockets, which should be backwards-compatible with existing clients (#1558)
    • The latest specification for the bot usermode (+B in our implementation) (#1562)

    This release includes changes to the config file format, all of which are fully backwards-compatible and do not require updating the file before upgrading.

    This release includes no changes to the embedded database format. If you are using MySQL for history storage, it adds a new table; this change is backwards and forwards-compatible and does not require any manual intervention.

    If you are using nginx as a reverse proxy for IRC-over-websockets, previous documentation did not recommend increasing proxy_read_timeout; the default value of 60s is too low and can lead to user disconnections. The current recommended value is proxy_read_timeout 600s;; see the manual for an example configuration.

    Many thanks to @ajaspers and @Mikaela for contributing patches, to @aster1sk, @emersion, @eskimo, @hhirtz, @jlu5, @jwheare, @KoraggKnightWolf, @kylef, @Mikaela, @mogad0n, @ProgVal, and @szlend for reporting issues and helping test, and to our translators for contributing translations.

    Config changes

    • Listeners now support multiple TLS certificates for use with SNI; see the manual for details (#875, thanks @Mikaela!)
    • Added server.compatibility.allow-truncation, controlling whether the server accepts messages that are too long to be relayed intact; this value defaults to true when unset (#1577, #1586, thanks @kylef!)
    • Added new snomasks operator capability; operators must have either the ban or snomasks capability to subscribe to additional snomasks (#1176)

    Security

    • Fixed several edge cases where Oragono might relay invalid UTF8 despite the UTF8ONLY guarantee, or to a text-mode websocket client (#1575, #1596, thanks @ProgVal!)
    • All operator privilege checks now use the capabilities system, making it easier to define operators with restricted powers (#1176)
    • Adding and removing bans with UBAN now produces snomasks and audit loglines (#1518, thanks @mogad0n!)

    Fixed

    • Fixed an edge case in line buffering that could result in client disconnections (#1572, thanks @ProgVal!)
    • Upgraded buntdb, our embedded database library, fixing an edge case that could cause data corruption (#1603, thanks @Mikaela, @tidwall!)
    • Improved compatibility with the published draft/register specification (#1568, thanks @ProgVal!)
    • 433 ERR_NICKNAMEINUSE is no longer sent when a fully connected ("registered") client fails to claim a reserved nickname, fixing a bad interaction with some client software (#1594, thanks @ProgVal!)
    • Fixed znc.in/playback commands causing client disconnections when history is disabled (#1552, thanks @szlend!)
    • Fixed syntactically invalid 696 ERR_INVALIDMODEPARAM response for invalid channel keys (#1563, thanks @ProgVal!)
    • User-set nickserv settings now display as "enabled" instead of "mandatory" (#1544, thanks @Mikaela!)
    • Improved error messages for some invalid configuration cases (#1559, thanks @aster1sk!)
    • Improved CS TRANSFER error messages (#1534, thanks burning!)
    • Handle panics caused when rehashing with SIGHUP (#1570)

    Changed

    • Registered channels will always appear in /LIST output, even with no members (#1507)
    • In the new recommended default configuration, Oragono will preemptively reject messages that are too long to be relayed to clients without truncation. This is controlled by the config variable server.compatibility.allow-truncation; this field defaults to true when unset, preserving the legacy behavior for older config files (#1577, #1586, thanks @kylef!)
    • Auto-away behavior now respects individual clients; the user is not considered away unless all clients are away or disconnected (#1531, thanks @kylef!)
    • Direct messages rejected due to the +R registered-only usermode now produce an error message (#1064, thanks @KoraggKnightWolf, @ajaspers!)
    • RELAYMSG identifiers now respect bans and mutes (#1502)
    • If end user message deletion is enabled, channel operators can now delete channel messages (#1565, thanks @Mikaela!)
    • Halfops can change the channel topic (#1523)
    • Snomask add/remove syntax now matches other ircds more closely (#1074)
    • CS OP will regrant your channel AMODE, in case you removed it (#1516, #1307, thanks @jlu5!)
    • User passwords may no longer begin with : (#1571)
    • Improved documentation of CS AMODE and NS UNREGISTER (#1524, #1545, thanks @Mikaela!)
    • Disabling history disables history-related CAPs (#1549)

    Added

    • Implemented the new CHATHISTORY TARGETS API for listing direct message conversations (#1592, thanks @emersion, @hhirtz, @jwheare, @kylef!)
    • Implemented the new IRC-over-websockets draft, adding support for binary websockets and subprotocol negotiation (#1558, thanks @jwheare!)
    • Implemented the new bot mode spec (#1562)
    • Implemented the new forward mode spec (#1612, thanks @ProgVal!)
    • WARN NICK ACCOUNT_REQUIRED is sent on failed attempts to claim a reserved nickname (#1594)
    • NS CLIENTS LIST displays enabled client capabilities (#1576)
    • CS INFO with no arguments lists your registered channels (#765)
    • NS PASSWORD is now accepted as an alias for NS PASSWD (#1547)

    Internal

    • Upgraded to Go 1.16 (#1510)

  • v2.5.0(Jan 31, 2021)

    We're pleased to announce Oragono 2.5.0, a new stable release.

    This release includes enhancements based on the needs of real-world operators, as well as bug fixes. Highlights include:

    • UBAN, a new "unified ban" system for server operators, with a corresponding CHANSERV HOWTOBAN command for channel operators (#1447)
    • A new forwarding/overflow channel mode +f (#1260)
    • Support for PROXY protocol v2 (#1389)

    This release includes changes to the config file format, including two breaking changes. One is fairly significant: enabling a websocket listener now requires the use of server.enforce-utf8, as has been the recommended default since 2.2.0 (so continuing to accept legacy non-UTF-8 content will require disabling websockets). The other is that the "unban" operator capability has been removed (it is now included in the "ban" capability). Other config changes are backwards compatible and do not require updating the file before upgrading.

    This release includes a database change. If you have datastore.autoupgrade set to true in your configuration, it will be automatically applied when you restart Oragono. Otherwise, you can update the database manually by running oragono upgradedb (see the manual for complete instructions).

    Many thanks to @jlu5, @kylef and @Mikaela for contributing patches, to @bogdomania, @eskimo, @happyhater, @jlu5, @kylef, @LukeHoersten, @Mikaela, @mogad0n, @robinlemon, and @vertisan for reporting issues and helping test, and to our translators for contributing translations.

    Config changes

    • Enabling websockets now requires server.enforce-utf8 = true (#1483)
    • proxy is now a top-level field of the listener config block; in particular, the PROXY protocol (v1 or v2) can now be required ahead of a plaintext connection. The field is still accepted in its legacy position (inside the tls block). (#1389, thanks @robinlemon!)
    • Added accounts.multiclient.always-on-expiration, allowing always-on clients to be timed out for inactivity (#810, thanks @bogdomania!)
    • local_ prefixes have been stripped from operator capability names, so that, e.g., local_ban is now just ban. The old names are still accepted. (#1442)
    • The local_unban operator capability has been removed (unbanning is now contained in the ban permission). (#1442)
    • The recommended value of accounts.bcrypt-cost is now 4, the minimum acceptable value (#1497)
    • server.ip-limits.custom-limits now accepts networks that contain multiple CIDRs; the old syntax is still accepted (#1421, thanks @Mikaela!
    • A new field, history.restrictions.query-cutoff, generalizes the old history.restrictions.enforce-registration-date (the old field is still accepted) (#1490, thanks @Mikaela!)
    • Added server.override-services-hostname, allowing the hostname of NickServ, ChanServ, etc. to be overridden (#1407, thanks @Mikaela!)
    • Added a boolean hide-sts key to the listener block; this can be used to hide the STS CAP when the listener is secured at layer 3 or 4 (e.g., by a VPN or an E2E mixnet). It will still be necessary to add the relevant IPs to secure-nets. (#1428, thanks @Mikaela!)

    Security

    • Improved validation of names and encodings for client-only tags (#1385)
    • Improved auditability of sensitive operator actions (#1443, thanks @mogad0n!)
    • DEFCON 4 and lower now require Tor users to authenticate with SASL (#1450)

    Fixed

    • Fixed NS UNSUSPEND requiring the casefolded / lowercase version of the account name (#1382, thanks @mogad0n!)
    • Fixed client-only tags in direct (user-to-user) PRIVMSG not being replayed (#1411)
    • Fixed many bugs in import of Anope and Atheme databases (#1403, #1423, #1424, #1431, #1435, #1439, #1444, thanks @jlu5, @kylef, and @Mikaela!)
    • Fixed case-handling bugs in RENAME (i.e., channel rename) (#1456, thanks @mogad0n!)
    • Fixed incorrect processing of color code escapes in MOTD files (#1467, thanks @mogad0n!)
    • STS is no longer advertised to Tor clients (#1428, thanks @Mikaela!)
    • Fixed HELP/HELPOP numerics not including the nick as an argument (#1472, thanks @kylef!)
    • Made connection registration snomasks less confusing (#1396, thanks @eskimo!)
    • Fixed duplicated nicks in KLINE response (#1379, thanks @mogad0n!)
    • The RELAYMSG tag name is now draft/relaymsg, conforming to the amended draft specification (#1468, thanks @jlu5!)
    • Fixed SAJOIN not sending a MODE line to the originating client (#1383, thanks @mogad0n!)
    • Improved consistency of message sources sent by CS AMODE (#1383, thanks @mogad0n!)
    • Fixed duplicated JOIN line sent to some clients using the draft/resume-0.5 extension (#1397, thanks @kylef!)
    • Added a warning that MySQL cannot be enabled by rehash (#1452, thanks @Mikaela!)

    Changed

    • Channel-user modes (e.g., +o, +v) of always-on clients are now persisted in the database (#1345)
    • /CHANSERV PURGE now takes ADD, DEL, and LIST subcommands; the separate UNPURGE command has been removed; PURGE ADD now requires a confirmation code (#1294, thanks @mogad0n!)
    • The characters <, >, ', ", and ; are no longer allowed in nicknames (previously registered account names containing these characters are still accepted) (#1436, thanks @happyhater!)
    • Authenticated clients from Tor now receive their (account-unique) always-on cloaked hostname; this allows channel operators to ban unauthenticated Tor users by banning *!*@tor-network.onion (#1479, thanks @mogad0n!)
    • Included the network name in the human-readable final parameter of 001 RPL_WELCOME (#1410)
    • RELAYMSG can now take client-only tags (#1470)
    • WebSocket listeners will attempt to negotiate the text.ircv3.net subprotocol; negotiating this is optional for clients (#1483)

    Added

    • Added UBAN, a new command giving server operators a unified interface to D-LINEs (IP bans), K-LINEs (NUH mask bans, which are now deprecated), and account suspensions (NS SUSPEND) (#1447)
    • Added CHANSERV HOWTOBAN, a ChanServ subcommand that helps channel operators choose an appropriate ban (#1447)
    • Added a new channel mode +f; users who cannot join the channel due to +i or +l will be forwarded to the channel specified by +f. (#1260)
    • Added support for the PROXY protocol v2 (#1389, thanks @robinlemon!)
    • Added support for /JOIN 0 (part all channels), requiring a confirmation code (#1417, thanks @Mikaela!)
    • Added support for grouped nicknames as SASL usernames (#1476, thanks @eskimo!)
    • Added history support for INVITE (#1409, thanks @Mikaela!)
    • Added a new channel setting accessible via /CS SET: history-cutoff, allowing the channel owner more fine-grained control over who can see history (#1490, thanks @Mikaela!)
    • Added the UTF8ONLY ISUPPORT token, allowing the server to advertise to clients that only UTF-8 content is accepted (#1483)
    • Added /NICKSERV RENAME, an operator-only command that can change the case of an account name (#1380, thanks @LukeHoersten!)

    Internal

    • Added caching for serialized messages (#1387)
    • Improved memory efficiency of line reading (#1231)

    • The characters <, >, ', ", and ; are no longer allowed in nicknames (previously registered account names containing these characters are still accepted) (#1436, thanks @happyhater!)
    • Authenticated clients from Tor now receive their (account-unique) always-on cloaked hostname; this allows channel operators to ban unauthenticated Tor users by banning *!*@tor-network.onion (#1479, thanks @mogad0n!)
    • Included the network name in the human-readable final parameter of 001 RPL_WELCOME (#1410)
    • RELAYMSG can now take client-only tags (#1470)

  • v2.4.0(Nov 8, 2020)

    We're pleased to announce Oragono 2.4.0, a new stable release.

    This release includes a number of exciting enhancements and fixes. Here are some highlights:

    • Support for migrating an Anope or Atheme database to Oragono (#1042)
    • A pluggable system for validating external IPs, e.g., via DNSBLs (#68, thanks @moortens!)
    • draft/relaymsg, a new draft extension simplifying bridging with other chat systems (thanks @jlu5!)
    • New moderation tools: +u ("auditorium", #1300), +U ("op-moderated", #1178), +M ("moderated-registered", #1182, thanks @ajaspers!), and +b m: (an extban for muting users, #307)

    This release includes changes to the config file format, including one breaking change: roleplay.enabled now defaults to false (the new recommended default) instead of true when unset. Other config changes are backwards compatible and do not require updating the file before upgrading.

    This release includes a database change. If you have datastore.autoupgrade set to true in your configuration, it will be automatically applied when you restart Oragono. Otherwise, you can update the database manually by running oragono upgradedb (see the manual for complete instructions).

    Many thanks to @ajaspers, @jesopo, @moortens, and @RunBarryRun for contributing patches, to @csmith for contributing code reviews, to @ajaspers, @Amiga60077, @bogdomania, @csmith, @edk0, @eskimo, @jlu5, @jwheare, @KoraggKnightWolf, @Mitaka8, @mogad0n, @RyanSquared, and @vertisan for reporting issues and helping test, and to our translators for contributing translations.

    Config changes

    • Added server.ip-cloaking.enabled-for-always-on, which generates a unique hostname for each always-on client. The recommended default value of this field is true (#1312)
    • Added server.coerce-ident; if this is set to a string value, all user/ident fields supplied by clients are ignored and replaced with this value. The recommended default value of this field is ~u. This simplifies bans. (#1340)
    • Simplified the config file format for email verification into a new accounts.nick-reservation.email-verification section. The old format (callbacks) is still accepted (#1075)
    • The recommended value of roleplay.enabled is now false; this field now defaults to false when unset (#1240, #1271)
    • Added server.relaymsg section for configuring the new draft/relaymsg capability; added the new relaymsg operator capability for exercising it (#1119)
    • Added allow-environment-overrides config variable, allowing config options to be overridden by environment variables. See the manual for more details. (#1049, thanks @csmith!)
    • Added server.ip-check-script for configuring IP check plugins (#68, #1267, thanks @moortens!)
    • Added max-concurrency restriction to accounts.auth-script section. The recommended default value is 64 (0 or unset disable the restriction) (#1267)
    • Added accounts.registration.allow-before-connect; this allows the use of the new REGISTER command before connecting to the server (#1075)
    • Added hidden option in operator blocks: if set to true, operator status is hidden from commands like WHOIS that would otherwise display it (#1194)
    • Added accounts.nick-reservation.forbid-anonymous-nick-changes, which forbids anonymous users from changing their nicknames after initially connecting (#1337, thanks @Amiga60077!)
    • Added channels.invite-expiration, allowing invites to +i channels to expire after a given amount of time (#1171)

    Security

    • Added /NICKSERV CLIENTS LOGOUT command for disconnecting clients connected to a user account (#1072, #1272, thanks @ajaspers!)
    • Disallowed the use of service nicknames during roleplaying (#1240, thanks @Mitaka8!)
    • Improved security properties of INVITE for invite-only channels, including an UNINVITE command (#1171)

    Removed

    • Removed the request queue system for HostServ, i.e., the REQUEST, APPROVE, and REJECT subcommands of HOSTSERV (#1346)

    Fixed

    • PONG is now sent with the server name as the first parameter, matching the behavior of other ircds (#1249, thanks @jesopo!)
    • It was not possible to set or unset the +T no-CTCP user mode; this has been fixed (#1299, thanks @mogad0n!)
    • Fixed edge cases with /NICKSERV SAREGISTER of confusable nicknames (#1322, thanks @mogad0n!)
    • Fixed websocket listeners with proxy-before-TLS enabled closing on invalid PROXY lines (#1269, thanks @RyanSquared!)
    • Fixed error responses and history for SANICK (#1277, #1278, thanks @eskimo!)
    • Ensured that stored realnames of always-on clients are deleted during account unregistration (#1330)
    • Whitespace is now stripped from KLINEs (#1327, thanks @mogad0n!)
    • Fixed incorrect LUSERS counts caused by KLINE (#1303, thanks @mogad0n!)
    • CHATHISTORY queries for invalid channels now get an empty batch instead of a FAIL (#1322)
    • fakelag.messages-per-window = 0 no longer causes a panic (#861, thanks @vertisan!)

    Added

    • Added oragono importdb command for importing a converted Anope or Atheme database; see the manual for details (#1042)
    • Added support for the new draft/relaymsg extension, which simplifies bridging IRC with other protocols relaymsg (#1119, thanks @jlu5!)
    • Added ip-check-script, a scripting API for restricting access by client IP. We provide oragono-dnsbl, an external script that can query DNSBLs for this purpose (#68, #1267, thanks @moortens!)
    • Added channel mode +u. This is an "auditorium" mode that prevents unprivileged users from seeing each other's JOIN and PART lines. It's useful for large public-announcement channels, possibly in conjunction with +m (#1300)
    • Added channel mode +U. This is an "op-moderated" mode; messages from unprivileged users are sent only to channel operators, who can then choose to grant them +v. (#1178)
    • Added a mute extban +b m:: users matching the ban expression (e.g., +b m:*!*@j6dwi4vacx47y.irc) will be able to join the channel, but will be unable to speak. (#307)
    • Added support for the new draft/register extension, which exposes a cleaner account registration API to clients (#1075, thanks @edk0!)
    • Added a 379 RPL_WHOISMODES line to the WHOIS response, making it easier for operators to see other users' modes (#769, thanks @Amiga60077 and @KoraggKnightWolf!)
    • Added /CHANSERV DEOP command for removing channel operator privileges (#361, thanks @RunBarryRun!)
    • Added r flag to /WHO responses for registered nicknames (#1366, thanks @Amiga60077!)

    Changed

    • Always-on clients now receive a user/ident of ~u by default, instead of ~user; this can be changed by setting the coerce-ident field (#1340)
    • /NICKSERV SUSPEND has been modified to take subcommands (ADD, DEL, and LIST); the ADD subcommand now accepts time duration and reason arguments. See /msg NickServ HELP SUSPEND for details. (#1274, thanks @mogad0n!)
    • Only the channel founder can kick the channel founder, regardless of either party's modes (#1262)
    • /NICKSERV SESSIONS is now /NICKSERV CLIENTS LIST, but the old command is still accepted (#1272, thanks @ajaspers!)
    • Improved SETNAME behavior for legacy clients (#1358, thanks @KoraggKnightWolf!)
    • Halfops can set the channel topic (#1306)
    • Full client certificates are now passed to auth scripts. This allows for more flexible checks on certificates, including verification against an internal CA (#414)

    Internal

    • Added a logline for debugging client disconnections (#1293)
    • Renamed conventional.yaml to traditional.yaml (#1350)
    • Integration tests are now run during CI (#1279)

  • v2.2.0(Jul 26, 2020)

    We're pleased to announce Oragono 2.2.0, a new stable release.

    This release contains several notable enhancements, as well as bug fixes:

    • Support for tracking seen/missed messages across multiple devices (#843)
    • WHOX support contributed by @jesopo (#938)
    • Authentication of users via external scripts (#1107)

    Many thanks to @clukawski and @jesopo for contributing patches, to @ajaspers, @bogdomania, @csmith, @daurnimator, @emersonveenstra, @eskil, @eskimo, Geo-, @happyhater, @jesopo, @jwheare, @k4bek4be, @KoraggKnightWolf, @kylef, @LukeHoersten, @mogad0n, r3m, @RyanSquared, savoyard, and @wrmsr for reporting issues and helping test, and to our translators for contributing translations.

    This release includes changes to the config file format, including one breaking change: timeout is no longer an acceptable value of accounts.nick-reservation.method. (If you were using it, we suggest strict as a replacement.) All other changes to the config file format are backwards compatible and do not require updating before restart.

    This release includes a database change. If you have datastore.autoupgrade set to true in your configuration, it will be automatically applied when you restart Oragono. Otherwise, you can update the database manually by running oragono upgradedb (see the manual for complete instructions).

    Removed

    • Timeout-based nickname enforcement has been removed. We recommend strict as the default enforcement method. Users who configured timeout for their account will be upgraded to strict. With accounts.login-via-pass-command enabled, clients lacking support for SASL can authenticate via the PASS (server password command) by sending account_name:account_password as the server password. (#1027)
    • Native support for LDAP has been removed. LDAP is now supported via the external oragono-ldap plugin; see its repository page for details. (#1142, #1107)

    Config changes

    • Added server.enforce-utf8, controlling whether the server enforces that messages be valid UTF-8; a value of true for this is now the recommended default (#1151)
    • Added history.tagmsg-storage for configuring which TAGMSG are stored in history; if this is not configured, TAGMSG will not be stored (#1172)
    • All TLS certificate fingerprints in the config file are now named certfp instead of fingerprint (the old name of fingerprint is still accepted) (#1050, thanks @RyanSquared!)
    • Added accounts.auth-script section for configuring external authentication scripts (#1107, thanks @daurnimator!)
    • Removed accounts.ldap section for configuring LDAP; LDAP is now available via the auth-script plugin interface (#1142)
    • Added defcon operator capability, allowing use of the new /DEFCON command (#328)
    • Default awaylen, kicklen, and topiclen limits now reflect the 512-character line limit (#1112, thanks @k4bek4be!)
    • Added extjwt section for configuring the EXTJWT extension (#948, #1136)
    • login-via-pass-command: true is now a recommended default (#1186)

    Added

    • Added support for WHOX, contributed by @jesopo (#938, thanks!)
    • Added support for tracking missed messages across multiple devices; see the "history" section of the manual for details (#843, thanks @jwheare and @wrmsr!)
    • Added /NICKSERV SUSPEND and /NICKSERV UNSUSPEND commands, allowing operators to suspend access to an abusive user account (#1135)
    • Added support for external authentication systems, via subprocess ("auth-script") invocation (#1107, thanks @daurnimator!)
    • Added the /DEFCON command, allowing operators to respond to spam or DoS attacks by disabling features at runtime without a rehash. (This feature requires that the operator have a newly defined capability, named defcon; this can be added to the appropriate oper blocks in the config file.) (#328, thanks @bogdomania!)
    • Added support for the EXTJWT draft extension, allowing Oragono to be integrated with other systems like Jitsi (#948, #1136)
    • Services (NickServ, ChanServ, etc.) now respond to CTCP VERSION messages (#1055, thanks @jesopo!)
    • Added BOT ISUPPORT token, plus a B flag for bots in 352 RPL_WHOREPLY (#1117)
    • Added support for the +T no-CTCP user mode (#1007, thanks @clukawski!)
    • Added support for persisting the realname of always-on clients (#1065, thanks @clukawski!)
    • Added a warning on incorrect arguments to /NICKSERV REGISTER (#1179, thanks @LukeHoersten!)
    • /NICKSERV SET PASSWORD now sends a warning (#1208)

    Fixed

    • Fixed channels with only invisible users not being displayed in /LIST output (#1161, thanks @bogdomania!)
    • Fixed INVITE not overriding a +b ban (#1168)
    • Fixed incorrect CHGHOST lines during authentication with /NICKSERV IDENTIFY under some circumstances (#1108, thanks Geo-!)
    • Fixed incorrect CHGHOST lines sent to users during connection registration (#1125, thanks @jesopo!)
    • Fixed a number of issues affecting the znc.in/playback capability, in particular restoring compatibility with Palaver (#1205, thanks @kylef!)
    • Fixed interaction of auto-away with the regular /AWAY command (#1207)
    • Fixed an incorrect interaction between always-on and /NS SAREGISTER (#1216)
    • Fixed a race condition where nicknames of signed-out users could remain in the channel names list (#1166, thanks @eskimo!)
    • Fixed the last line of the MOTD being truncated in the absence of a terminating \n (#1167, thanks @eskimo!)
    • Fixed away-notify lines not being sent on channel JOIN (#1198, thanks savoyard!)
    • Fixed incorrect source of some nickserv messages (#1185)
    • Fixed idle time being updated on non-PRIVMSG commands (thanks r3m and @happyhater!)
    • Fixed /NICKSERV UNREGISTER and /NICKSERV ERASE not deleting stored user modes (#1157)

    Security

    • Connections to an STS-only listener no longer reveal the exact server version or server creation time (#802, thanks @csmith!)

    Changed

    • /DLINE now operates on individual client connections (#1135)
    • When using the multiclient feature, each client now has its own independent MONITOR list (#1053, thanks @ajaspers!)
    • MONITOR L now lists the nicknames in the form they were originally sent with MONITOR +, without casefolding (#1083)
    • We now send the traditional 445 ERR_SUMMONDISABLED and 446 ERR_USERSDISABLED in response to the SUMMON and USERS commands (#1078, thanks @KoraggKnightWolf!)
    • RPL_ISUPPORT parameters with no values are now sent without an = (#1067, #1069, #1091, thanks @KoraggKnightWolf and @jesopo!)
    • TAGMSG storage is now controlled via the history.tagmsg-storage config block (#1172)
    • /NICKSERV CERT ADD with no argument now adds the user's current TLS certificate fingerprint, when applicable (#1059, thanks @emersonveenstra!)

    Internal

    • The config file containing recommended defaults is now named default.yaml, instead of oragono.yaml (#1130, thanks @k4bek4be!)
    • The output of the /INFO command now includes the full git hash, when applicable (#1105)

  • v2.1.0(Jun 1, 2020)

    We're pleased to announce Oragono 2.1.0, a new stable release.

    Since the release of 2.0.0 in March, a number of new communities and organizations have adopted Oragono as a communications tool. This new release incorporates many improvements and fixes derived from the experiences of real-world operators and end users. Highlights include:

    • Native support for websockets contributed by @hhirtz, eliminating the need for a separate websockets-to-IRC proxy server
    • Tighter control over the relationship between account names and nicknames, eliminating the need for extbans
    • Support for sending account verification emails directly from Oragono, including DKIM signatures

    Many thanks to @ajaspers and @hhirtz for contributing patches, to @ajaspers, @eklitzke, and @hhirtz for contributing code reviews, to @ajaspers, @bogdomania, @clukawski, Csibesz, @csmith, @eklitzke, @nxths, @hhirtz, @jesopo, @jlnt, @justjanne, @jwheare, @k4bek4be, @KoraggKnightWolf, @kula, @kylef, @Mitaka8, @petteri, @PizzaLover2007, @prawnsalad, @RyanSquared, savoyard, and @xPaw for reporting issues, and to @bogdomania, @boppy, Nuve, stickytoffeepuddingwithcaramel, and @vegax87 for contributing translations.

    This release includes changes to the config file format, including one breaking change: support for server.ip-cloaking.secret-environment-variable has been removed. (See below for instructions on how to upgrade if you were using this feature.) All other changes to the config file format are backwards compatible and do not require updating before restart.

    This release includes a database change. If you have datastore.autoupgrade set to true in your configuration, it will be automatically applied when you restart Oragono. Otherwise, you can update the database manually by running oragono upgradedb (see the manual for complete instructions).

    This release includes a change to the MySQL schema. This change will be applied automatically when you restart Oragono. It is fully backwards compatible (i.e., if it is necessary for you to downgrade Oragono back to 2.0.0, it will not be necessary to downgrade the schema).

    Config Changes

    • Added websocket attribute of individual listeners, and a new server.websockets section, for configuring websocket listeners. (#967, thanks @hhirtz!)
    • The recommended default is now to enable IP cloaking. In order to facilitate this, the cloaking secret is now stored in the database, instead of the config file. If you currently have a secret stored in the config file (as server.ip-cloaking.secret), it will be automatically imported into the database. If you were using secret-environment-variable to distribute your cloaking secret, you can import it manually after restart using the new /HOSTSERV SETCLOAKSECRET command. (#952)
    • Added accounts.nick-reservation.force-nick-equals-account, which ensures that logged-in clients are using their account name as their nickname. This eliminates the need for extbans and is a new recommended default. (#864)
    • Added guest-nickname-format and force-guest-format, which optionally add a prefix like Guest- to the nicknames of unauthenticated users (#749)
    • The recommended default is now to enable history storage and playback, with messages expiring after 7 days. (As with all changes in recommended config values, applying this to an existing config file requires explicitly changing the values.) (#1030)
    • Added history.retention section for controlling new features related to history storage and deletion (#858)
    • The recommended default for accounts.multiclient.always-on is now opt-in (#919)
    • Added accounts.default-user-modes; the recommended default is now to set +i on all users automatically (#942, thanks @ajaspers!)
    • Added channels.list-delay, allowing restrictions on channel listings as a defence against spambots (#964)
    • Added accounts.multiclient.auto-away, allowing always-on clients to be automatically marked as away when all their sessions disconnect
    • Added accounts.throttling as a global throttle on the creation of new accounts (#913)
    • New format for accounts.callbacks.mailto, allowing direct email sending and DKIM signing (#921)
    • Added accounts.login-via-pass-command, providing a new mechanism for legacy clients to authenticate to accounts by sending PASS account:password pre-registration (#1020)
    • Added datastore.mysql.socket-path, allowing MySQL connections over UNIX domain sockets (#1016, thanks savoyard and @ajaspers!)
    • Added roleplay section for controlling the server's roleplay features (#865)
    • The recommended default for accounts.nick-reservation.allow-custom-enforcement is now false (#918)
    • The recommended default is now to allow PROXY and WEBIRC lines from localhost (#989, #1011)
    • Added channels.registration.operator-only, optionally restricting channel registrations to operators (#685)
    • Added server.output-path for controlling where the server writes output files (#1004)
    • Operator capability names prefixed with oper: have been normalized to remove the prefix (the old names are still respected in the config file) (#868)
    • The log category names localconnect and localconnect-ip have been changed to connect and connect-ip respectively (the old names are still respected in the config file) (#940)

    Security

    • Fixed incorrect enforcement of ban/invite/exception masks under some circumstances (#983)
    • STATUSMSG were being stored in history without the relevant minimum-prefix information, so they could be replayed to unprivileged users. This was fixed by not storing them at all. (#959, thanks @prawnsalad!)
    • Fixed invisible users not being hidden from WHO * queries (#991, thanks @ajaspers!)
    • Restricted nicknames of some additional common services: OperServ, BotServ, MemoServ, and Global (#1080, thanks @KoraggKnightWolf!)

    Fixed

    • Fixed incorrect rejection of draft/multiline messages containing blank lines (#1005, thanks @jwheare!)
    • Fixed roleplay commands, which were completely broken from v1.1.0 through v2.0.0 (#865, thanks @petteri and @Mitaka8!)
    • Fixed /SAMODE applying user mode changes to the operator instead of the target user (#866, thanks @csmith!)
    • Fixed some channels not being unregistered during account unregistration (#889)
    • Fixed /NICKSERV SET and related commands being unavailable when account registration is disabled (#922, thanks @PizzaLover2007!)
    • Fixed TAGMSG not being replayed correctly in history (#1044)
    • Fixed incorrect 401 ERR_NOSUCHNICK responses on TAGMSG sent to a service (#1051, thanks @ajaspers!)
    • Fixed 301 RPL_AWAY not being sent in WHOIS responses when applicable (#850)
    • /OPER with no password no longer disconnects the client (#951)
    • Fixed failure to send extended-join responses after account unregistration (#933, thanks @jesopo!)
    • Improved validation of channel keys (#1021, thanks @kylef!)
    • Fixed labeling of 421 ERR_UNKNOWNCOMMAND responses (#994, thanks @k4bek4be!)
    • Fixed incorrect parsing of ident protocol responses (#1002, thanks @justjanne!)
    • Fixed registration completing after NICK and an ident response, without waiting for USER (#1057, thanks @KoraggKnightWolf!)
    • Fixed messages rejected by the +R mode being stored in history (#1061, thanks @KoraggKnightWolf!)
    • Fixed redundant /INVITE commands not sending 443 ERR_USERONCHANNEL (#842, thanks @hhirtz!)
    • Fixed /NICKSERV REGISTER response displaying mailto: out of context (#985, thanks @eklitzke!)
    • Fixed nickname changes not sending 731 RPL_MONOFFLINE when appropriate (#1076, thanks @ajaspers!)
    • Fixed incorrect MONITOR responses in some cases (#1086, thanks @ajaspers!)
    • Fixed HostServ approval and rejection notices being sent from the wrong source (#805)
    • Error messages for invalid TLS certificate/key pairs are now more informative (#982)
    • Fixed error message when attempting to attach a plaintext session to an always-on client (#955, thanks @bogdomania and @xPaw!)
    • Increased the TLS handshake timeout, increasing reliability under high CPU contention (#894)
    • Fixed CHANMODES ISUPPORT token (#408, #874, thanks @hhirtz!)
    • Fixed 002 RPL_MYINFO parameters (#1058, thanks @KoraggKnightWolf!)

    • Fixed edge cases in handling of the +k channel mode parameter (#874, thanks @hhirtz!)
    • account-notify lines are now part of the labeled-response batch when applicable (#1018)
    • Fixed incorrect help description of channel mode +R (#930, thanks @PizzaLover2007!)
    • Fixed 255 RPL_LUSERME response to indicate that the number of federated peer servers is 0 (#846, thanks @RyanSquared!)

    • Account unregistration now always disconnects the client (#1028)
    • Fakelag is now temporarily disabled during the sending of a draft/multiline message batch (#817)
    • Failed attempts to join a +R channel now send 477 ERR_NEEDREGGEDNICK (#936, thanks @PizzaLover2007, @jesopo!)
    • 353 RPL_NAMREPLY now always uses a trailing parameter, for compatibility with incorrect client implementations (#854, #862)
    • Channels with persistent history can no longer be renamed with /RENAME (#827)
    • The self-signed certificate generation command oragono mkcerts now generates a 2048-bit RSA certificate, instead of a NIST P-521 ECDSA certificate (#898)
    • Cleaned up compatibility with an obsolete WEBIRC escaping convention (#869)
    • The cloak secret is now stored in the database, so it can no longer be rotated by changing server.ip-cloaking.secret. To rotate the secret, use the new /HOSTSERV SETCLOAKSECRET command. (#952)

    Added

  • v2.1.0-rc1(May 25, 2020)

    We're pleased to be publishing the release candidate for 2.1.0 (the official release should follow in a week or so).

    Since the release of 2.0.0 in March, a number of new communities and organizations have adopted Oragono as a communications tool. This new release incorporates many improvements and fixes derived from the experiences of real-world operators and end users. Highlights include:

    • Native support for websockets contributed by @hhirtz, eliminating the need for a separate websockets-to-IRC proxy server
    • Tighter control over the relationship between account names and nicknames, eliminating the need for extbans
    • Support for sending account verification emails directly from Oragono, including DKIM signatures

    Many thanks to @ajaspers and @hhirtz for contributing patches, to @ajaspers, @eklitzke, and @hhirtz for contributing code reviews, to @ajaspers, @bogdomania, @clukawski, Csibesz, @csmith, @eklitzke, @nxths, @hhirtz, @jesopo, @jlnt, @justjanne, @jwheare, @k4bek4be, @kula, @kylef, @Mitaka8, @petteri, @PizzaLover2007, @prawnsalad, @RyanSquared, savoyard, and @xPaw for reporting issues, and to @bogdomania, @boppy, Nuve, stickytoffeepuddingwithcaramel, and @vegax87 for contributing translations. for contributing translations.

    This release includes changes to the config file format, including one breaking change: support for server.ip-cloaking.secret-environment-variable has been removed. (See below for instructions on how to upgrade if you were using this feature.) All other changes to the config file format are backwards compatible and do not require updating before restart.

    This release includes a database change. If you have datastore.autoupgrade set to true in your configuration, it will be automatically applied when you restart Oragono. Otherwise, you can update the database manually by running oragono upgradedb (see the manual for complete instructions).

    This release includes a change to the MySQL schema. This change will be applied automatically when you restart Oragono. It is fully backwards compatible (i.e., if it is necessary for you to downgrade Oragono back to 2.0.0, it will not be necessary to downgrade the schema).

    Config Changes

    • Added websocket attribute of individual listeners, and a new server.websockets section, for configuring websocket listeners. (#967, thanks @hhirtz!)
    • The recommended default is now to enable IP cloaking. In order to facilitate this, the cloaking secret is now stored in the database, instead of the config file. If you currently have a secret stored in the config file (as server.ip-cloaking.secret), it will be automatically imported into the database. If you were using secret-environment-variable to distribute your cloaking secret, you can import it manually after restart using the new /HOSTSERV SETCLOAKSECRET command. (#952)
    • Added accounts.nick-reservation.force-nick-equals-account, which ensures that logged-in clients are using their account name as their nickname. This eliminates the need for extbans and is a new recommended default. (#864)
    • Added guest-nickname-format and force-guest-format, which optionally add a prefix like Guest- to the nicknames of unauthenticated users (#749)
    • The recommended default is now to enable history storage and playback, with messages expiring after 7 days. (As with all changes in recommended config values, applying this to an existing config file requires explicitly changing the values.) (#1030)
    • Added history.retention section for controlling new features related to history storage and deletion (#858)
    • The recommended default for accounts.multiclient.always-on is now opt-in (#919)
    • Added accounts.default-user-modes; the recommended default is now to set +i on all users automatically (#942, thanks @ajaspers!)
    • Added channels.list-delay, allowing restrictions on channel listings as a defence against spambots (#964)
    • Added accounts.multiclient.auto-away, allowing always-on clients to be automatically marked as away when all their sessions disconnect
    • Added accounts.throttling as a global throttle on the creation of new accounts (#913)
    • New format for accounts.callbacks.mailto, allowing direct email sending and DKIM signing (#921)
    • Added accounts.login-via-pass-command, providing a new mechanism for legacy clients to authenticate to accounts by sending PASS account:password pre-registration (#1020)
    • Added datastore.mysql.socket-path, allowing MySQL connections over UNIX domain sockets (#1016, thanks savoyard and @ajaspers!)
    • Added roleplay section for controlling the server's roleplay features (#865)
    • The recommended default for accounts.nick-reservation.allow-custom-enforcement is now false (#918)
    • The recommended default is now to allow PROXY and WEBIRC lines from localhost (#989, #1011)
    • Added channels.registration.operator-only, optionally restricting channel registrations to operators (#685)
    • Added server.output-path for controlling where the server writes output files (#1004)
    • Operator capability names prefixed with oper: have been normalized to remove the prefix (the old names are still respected in the config file) (#868)
    • The log category names localconnect and localconnect-ip have been changed to connect and connect-ip respectively (the old names are still respected in the config file) (#940)

    Security

    • Fixed incorrect enforcement of ban/invite/exception masks under some circumstances (#983)
    • STATUSMSG were being stored in history without the relevant minimum-prefix information, so they could be replayed to unprivileged users. This was fixed by not storing them at all. (#959, thanks @prawnsalad!)
    • Fixed invisible users not being hidden from WHO * queries (#991, thanks @ajaspers!)

    Fixed

    • Fixed incorrect rejection of draft/multiline messages containing blank lines (#1005, thanks @jwheare!)
    • Fixed roleplay commands, which were completely broken from v1.1.0 through v2.0.0 (#865, thanks @petteri and @Mitaka8!)
    • Fixed /SAMODE applying user mode changes to the operator instead of the target user (#866, thanks @csmith!)
    • Fixed some channels not being unregistered during account unregistration (#889)
    • Fixed /NICKSERV SET and related commands being unavailable when account registration is disabled (#922, thanks @PizzaLover2007!)
    • Fixed TAGMSG not being replayed correctly in history (#1044)
    • Fixed 301 RPL_AWAY not being sent in WHOIS responses when applicable (#850)
    • /OPER with no password no longer disconnects the client (#951)
    • Fixed failure to send extended-join responses after account unregistration (#933, thanks @jesopo!)
    • Improved validation of channel keys (#1021, thanks @kylef!)
    • Fixed labeling of 421 ERR_UNKNOWNCOMMAND responses (#994, thanks @k4bek4be!)
    • Fixed incorrect parsing of ident protocol responses (#1002, thanks @justjanne!)
    • Fixed redundant /INVITE commands not sending 443 ERR_USERONCHANNEL (#842, thanks @hhirtz!)
    • Fixed /NICKSERV REGISTER response displaying mailto: out of context (#985, thanks @eklitzke!)
    • Fixed HostServ approval and rejection notices being sent from the wrong source (#805)
    • Error messages for invalid TLS certificate/key pairs are now more informative (#982)
    • Fixed error message when attempting to attach a plaintext session to an always-on client (#955, thanks @bogdomania and @xPaw!)
    • Increased the TLS handshake timeout, increasing reliability under high CPU contention (#894)
    • Fixed CHANMODES ISUPPORT token (#408, #874, thanks @hhirtz!)
    • Fixed edge cases in handling of the +k channel mode parameter (#874, thanks @hhirtz!)
    • account-notify lines are now part of the labeled-response batch when applicable (#1018)
    • Fixed incorrect help description of channel mode +R (#930, thanks @PizzaLover2007!)
    • Fixed 255 RPL_LUSERME response to indicate that the number of federated peer servers is 0 (#846, thanks @RyanSquared!)

    Changed

    • Account names are now permanent identifiers; they cannot be re-registered after unregistration, and applicable nickname protections remain in force. (#793)
    • User modes of always-on clients now persist across server restarts (#819)
    • Registered channels with no members remain present on the server, including their in-memory history messages when applicable (#704, thanks @bogdomania!)

    • /CHANSERV AMODE now takes immediate effect (#729)
    • The channel founder can now take any action that would require channel privileges without actually having the +q mode (#950, #998)
    • Account unregistration now always disconnects the client (#1028)
    • Fakelag is now temporarily disabled during the sending of a draft/multiline message batch (#817)
    • Failed attempts to join a +R channel now send 477 ERR_NEEDREGGEDNICK (#936, thanks @PizzaLover2007, @jesopo!)
    • Channels with persistent history can no longer be renamed with /RENAME (#827)
    • The self-signed certificate generation command oragono mkcerts now generates a 2048-bit RSA certificate, instead of a NIST P-521 ECDSA certificate (#898)
    • Cleaned up compatibility with an obsolete WEBIRC escaping convention (#869)
    • The cloak secret is now stored in the database, so it can no longer be rotated by changing server.ip-cloaking.secret. To rotate the secret, use the new /HOSTSERV SETCLOAKSECRET command. (#952)

    Added

    • Added native support for websockets (#967, thanks @hhirtz!)
    • Added support for sending verification emails directly (i.e., without a MTA/smarthost), including DKIM signing (#920, #921)
    • Added /NICKSERV LIST and /CHANSERV LIST, allowing operators to list registered nicknames and channels (#974, thanks @ajaspers!)
    • Added auto-away feature for marking always-on clients away when all their sessions are disconnected; see accounts.multiclient.auto-away and /NICKSERV HELP SET for more information (#824)
    • Added /HISTSERV PLAY, which plays back history messages as NOTICEs from the HistServ service (#383, thanks @nxths!)
    • Added /HISTSERV DELETE for deleting history messages (see the config option history.retention.allow-individual-delete) (#858)

  • v2.0.0(Mar 8, 2020)

    We're pleased to announce Oragono 2.0.0, a major update with a wide range of enhancements and fixes. Highlights include:

    • Support for storing chat history in a MySQL backend
    • Full "bouncer" functionality, including "always-on" clients that remain present on the server even when disconnected
    • LDAP support contributed by @mattouille
    • Support for the ratified labeled-response IRCv3 capability
    • Enhanced support for Kubernetes
    • Many new service commands, improving management of client certificates, vhosts, and channel ownership

    Many thanks to @csmith, @mattouille, and @xPaw for contributing patches, to @csmith and @wrmsr for contributing code reviews, to @bogdomania, @brenns10, @daurnimator, @ekianjo, horseface, @ivucica, @jesopo, @jwheare, KoDi, lover, @notbandali, @poVoq, @TETYYS, and @zaher for reporting issues, and to @bogdomania and Nuve for contributing translations.

    This release includes changes to the config file format, including two breaking changes:

    1. Backwards compatibility with the old server.listen format for configuring listeners has been removed; you must now use the server.listeners format that was introduced in 1.2.0.
    2. The two sections server.connection-limits and server.connection-throttling have been consolidated into one new section, server.ip-limits.

    Other changes to the config file format are backwards compatible and do not require updating before restart. To minimize potential downtime, we suggest the following workflow:

    1. Without upgrading your oragono binary, edit your config file to add new server.listeners and server.ip-limits sections, based on the example config file
    2. Rehash your server, confirming that the new config file is valid for for the previous version of the server
    3. Upgrade your oragono binary to the new 2.0.x version and restart your server
    4. Once your deployment is stable on 2.0.x, delete the old server.listen, server.connection-limits, and server.connection-throttling sections from your config, and rehash your server to confirm

    This release includes a database change. If you have datastore.autoupgrade set to true in your configuration, it will be automatically applied when you restart Oragono. Otherwise, you can update the database manually by running oragono upgradedb (see the manual for complete instructions).

  • v1.2.0(Nov 16, 2019)

    We're pleased to announce Oragono 1.2.0. This version contains bug fixes and minor improvements.

    Many thanks to @bogdomania, @csmith, @edmund-huber, @jesopo, @jwheare, @poVoq, @prawnsalad, and stealthgin for reporting issues and contributing code reviews, and also to @bogdomania, Forbidden (cptbl00dra1n), Nuve, @streaps, and UnLokitoFeliz for contributing translations.

    This release includes a change to the config file format: the old server.listen format for configuring listeners has been replaced by a new server.listeners format. See the bundled oragono.yaml configuration file for a commented example. For now, Oragono maintains backwards compatibility with the old format. To minimize potential downtime, we recommend the following workflow:

    1. Without rewriting your config file, upgrade your oragono binary to the new 1.2.x version and restart your server
    2. Rewrite your configuration file to use the new server.listeners format
    3. Rehash your server, confirming that the rewritten config file is valid and correct

    This release includes a database change. If you have datastore.autoupgrade set to true in your configuration, it will be automatically applied when you restart Oragono. Otherwise, you can update the database manually by running oragono upgradedb (see the manual for complete instructions).

    Config Changes

    • Replaced server.listen section with server.listeners; see oragono.yaml for a commented example (#565)
    • Added history.autoresize_window for automatically resizing history buffers (#349)

    Added

    • Added STS-only listeners; you can configure port 6667 so that it "redirects" clients to TLS on port 6697. See the manual for details. (#448)
    • Added the CHANLIMIT ISUPPORT token (#625, thanks @poVoq!)
    • Added ban creator and creation time to banlist output (#644, thanks stealthgin!)

    Changed

    • Upgraded to the new draft/labeled-response-0.2 capability (#555)
    • oragono mkcerts no longer overwrites existing certificate files (#622, thanks @poVoq!)
    • Allowed Tor and non-Tor connections to attach to the same nickname via bouncer functionality (#632)

    Fixed

    • Fixed CAP LS 302 response being potentially truncated (#594, #661)
    • Fixed redundant output to some MODE commands (#649)
    • Improved display of replies to /msg NickServ verify in some clients (#567, thanks @edmund-huber!)
    • Improved display of NickServ timeout warnings in some clients (#572, thanks @bogdomania!)
    • LUSERS output is now sent at the end of connection registration (#526)
    • Fixed operators not being able to WHOIS some Unicode nicknames (#331, thanks @bogdomania!)
    • Fixed RESUME not clearing the BRB reason (#592, thanks @jesopo!)
    • Fixed an edge case where the BRB timestamp wasn't reset correctly (#642)
    • Fixed behavior of SAMODE issued against a different user (#585)
    • Fixed a false-positive error logline (#601)
    • oragono.io/bnc is no longer advertised when disabled in the config (#595)
    • Made the connection limiter and throttler more resilient against the failure to whitelist a reverse proxy IP (#197, thanks @prawnsalad!)

    Internal Notes

    • Official builds now use Go 1.13, which includes native TLS 1.3 support (#626)

  • v1.1.1(Jul 21, 2019)

    Oragono 1.1.1 is a bugfix release for flaws in message handling, including one with security implications.

    Many thanks to @streaps for reporting issues.

    Upgrade notes

    This release does not change the database or configuration file format.

    Security

    • Previous releases of Oragono would incorrectly relay chat messages containing the \r byte. An attacker could use this to spoof protocol messages from the server (depending on the implementation of the victim's client). This has been fixed. (#610)

    Fixed

    • Fixed incorrect rejection of messages with multiple spaces (#602, thanks @streaps!)

  • v1.1.0(Jun 28, 2019)

    We're pleased to announce Oragono version 1.1.0. This version has a number of exciting improvements, including:

    • Simplified commands for registering new accounts with NickServ.
    • Support for IP cloaking.
    • Support for attaching multiple clients to the same nickname.
    • Support for the newly ratified message tags and message ID IRCv3 specifications; client developers are invited to use Oragono as a reference when implementing these specifications.
    • Support for running Oragono as a Tor hidden service.

    Many thanks to @Ascrod, @amyspark, @bogdomania, @csmith, @jesopo, @jwheare, lover, and @transitracer for reporting issues and contributing patches, and also to @bogdomania, Elvedin Hušić, Nuve, and @streaps for contributing translations.

    Upgrade notes

    This release includes a database change. If you have datastore.autoupgrade set to true in your configuration, it will be automatically applied when you restart Oragono. Otherwise, you can update the database manually by running oragono upgradedb (see the manual for complete instructions).

    No changes to your configuration file should be required for this upgrade. However, updating the file is necessary to enable some new functionality, as described below.

    Config changes

    • tor-listeners section added for configuring listeners for use with Tor.
    • compatibility section added for toggling compatibility behaviors for legacy clients.
    • ip-cloaking section added for configuring cloaking.
    • bouncer section added for configuring bouncer-like features (in particular, whether multiple clients can use the same nickname).
    • check-ident now has recommended value false.
    • nick-reservation.method now has recommended value "strict"`.
    • fakelag.enabled now has recommended value true.
    • limits.linelen.tags removed due to ratification of the message-tags spec, which fixes the maximum tags length at 8191 bytes.
    • limits.registration-messages added to restrict how many messages a user can send to the server during connection registration (while connecting to the server).
    • channels.operator-only-creation added to optionally restrict creation of new channels to ircops (#537).

    Security

    • Users can no longer impersonate network services like ChanServ by using confusing nicks like "ChɑnServ" (#519, thanks @csmith!).
    • Closed several loopholes in confusable nick detection (#562, #564, #570, thanks lover!)
    • Secret channels (mode +s) now act more secret (#380, thanks @csmith!).
    • The +R (registered-only) mode now prevents unregistered users from joining the channel, not just from speaking (#463, thanks @bogdomania!).
    • Limited how many messages clients can send during connection registration to mitigate potential DoS attacks (#505).
    • Attempting to reauthenticate with SASL now fails with 907 ERR_SASLALREADY (#476).

    Fixed

    • Fixed /ISON command reporting users as always being online (#479).
    • Fixed clients who negotiated CAP version 302 or higher not receiving cap-notify messages (#464).
    • We now treat channel privileges such as halfop more consistently (#400).
    • Fixed a bug where clients could receive message tags they hadn't enabled (#434).
    • When replaying history, messages now have more consistent IDs and timestamps
    • IDs and timestamps are now applied more consistently to messages (#388, #477, #483).
    • Client-to-client tags are now stored and replayed in message history (#437).
    • Fixed various error numerics that were being sent with incorrect parameters (#425, thanks @Ascrod!).
    • Fixed STATUSMSG not adding the correct prefix to the channel when relaying the message (#467).
    • Fixed /RENAME command not correctly renaming the channel for some users (#300, thanks @jesopo!).
    • History playback is now batched when applicable (#456, thanks @transitracer!).
    • Notices from NickServ/ChanServ/etc should display better in some clients (#496, thanks @jwheare!).
    • Fixed nickname timer warnings not displaying correctly sometimes (#449, thanks @bogdomania!).
    • When history playback is disabled, the /HISTORY command now says so instead of silently failing (#429, thanks @bogdomania!).
    • The /HOSTSERV ON/OFF commands now tell you when you don't have a vhost (#404, thanks @bogdomania!).
    • When operators use the /SANICK command, the snomask now says which operator did it instead of saying the target changed their nickname themselves (#360, thanks @bogdomania!).
    • History playback now includes messages that the user sent themselves (especially useful with the new bouncer-like capabilities) (#487).

    Added

    • IP cloaking is now supported (see the manual for details) (#108).
    • Users can now attach multiple clients to the same nickname (see the manual for details) (#403).
    • Oragono can now be used as a Tor hidden service (see the manual for details) (#369).
    • The znc.in/playback capability is now supported, which can automate history playback for clients that support it (#486).
    • User preference system controlling various behaviors (/msg NickServ help set for details) (#466).
    • Support for the draft/event-playback spec (#457).
    • The TAGMSG and NICK messages are now replayable in history (#457).
    • Added the draft IRCv3 SETNAME command for changing your realname (#372).
    • Added new Bosnian (bs-BA) translation (thanks to Elvedin Hušić!).
    • Added new German (de-DE) translation (thanks to streaps!).

    Changed

    • Registering an account with NickServ is now /msg NickServ register <password>, which registers the current nickname as an account, matching other services (#410).
    • Added a compatibility hack to make SASL work with ZNC 1.6.x (#261).
    • We now support the ratified message-tags spec, replacing draft/message-tags-0.2.
    • We now support the ratified message IDs spec, replacing draft/msgid.
    • The oragono.io/maxline-2 capability has replaced oragono.io/maxline, the new version now working alongside the ratified message-tags spec (#433).
    • We now support draft/resume-0.5 and the associated BRB command, replacing draft/resume-0.3.
    • Upgraded support for the /RENAME command to the latest draft of the specification.
    • Upgraded support for the /ACC command to the latest draft of the specification (#453, #455).

    • ISON now reports services (ChanServ/NickServ/etc) as online (#488).
    • All times are now reported in UTC (#480).
    • NICKSERV ENFORCE is deprecated in favor of the new NICKSERV SET ENFORCE (the old syntax is still available as an alias).
    • The WHO command is now treated like PONG in that it doesn't count as user activity, since client software often uses it automatically (#485).
    • The NAMES command now only returns results for the first given channel (#534).
    • Updated French (fr-FR) translation (thanks to Nuve!).
    • Updated Română (ro-RO) translation (thanks to @bogdomania!).

    We're pleased to be publishing the release candidate for 1.1.0 (the official release should follow in a week or two, with more complete credits). This version has a number of exciting improvements, including:

    • Simplified commands for registering new accounts with NickServ.
    • Support for IP cloaking.
    • Support for attaching multiple clients to the same nickname.
    • Support for the newly ratified message tags and message ID IRCv3 specifications; client developers are invited to use Oragono as a reference when implementing these specifications.
    • Support for running Oragono as a Tor hidden service.

    This release includes a database change. If you have datastore.autoupgrade set to true in your configuration, it will be automatically applied when you restart Oragono; otherwise, you can update the database manually by running oragono upgradedb.

    Config changes

    • tor-listeners section added for configuring listeners for use with Tor.
    • compatibility section added for toggling compatibility behaviors for legacy clients.
    • ip-cloaking section added for configuring cloaking.
    • bouncer section added for configuring bouncer-like features (in particular, whether multiple clients can use the same nickname).
    • check-ident now defaults to false.
    • nick-reservation.method now defaults to "strict".
    • fakelag.enabled now defaults to true
    • limits.linelen.tags removed due to ratification of the message-tags spec, which fixes the maximum tags length at 8191 bytes.
    • limits.registration-messages added to restrict how many messages a user can send to the server during connection registration (while connecting to the server).
    • channels.operator-only-creation added to optionally restrict creation of new channels to ircops (#537).

    Security

    • Users can no longer impersonate network services like ChanServ by using confusing nicks like "ChɑnServ" (#519, thanks @csmith!).
    • Secret channels (mode +s) now act more secret (#380, thanks @csmith!).
    • The +R (registered-only) mode now prevents unregistered users from joining the channel, not just from speaking (#463, thanks @bogdomania!).
    • Limited how many messages clients can send during connection registration to mitigate potential DoS attacks (#505).
    • Attempting to reauthenticate with SASL now fails with 907 ERR_SASLALREADY (#476).

    Fixed

    • Fixed /ISON command reporting users as always being online (#479).
    • Fixed clients who negotiated CAP version 302 or higher not receiving cap-notify messages (#464).
    • We now treat channel privileges such as halfop more consistently (#400).
    • Fixed a bug where clients could receive message tags they hadn't enabled (#434).
    • When replaying history, messages now have more consistent IDs and timestamps
    • IDs and timestamps are now applied more consistently to messages (#388, #477, #483).
    • Client-to-client tags are now stored and replayed in message history (#437).
    • Fixed various error numerics that were being sent with incorrect parameters (#425, thanks @Ascrod!).
    • Fixed STATUSMSG not adding the correct prefix to the channel when relaying the message (#467).
    • Fixed /RENAME command not correctly renaming the channel for some users (#300, thanks @jesopo!).
    • History playback is now batched when applicable (#456, thanks @transitracer!).
    • Notices from NickServ/ChanServ/etc should display better in some clients (#496, thanks @jwheare!).
    • Fixed nickname timer warnings not displaying correctly sometimes (#449, thanks @bogdomania!).
    • When history playback is disabled, the /HISTORY command now says so instead of silently failing (#429, thanks @bogdomania!).
    • The /HOSTSERV ON/OFF commands now tell you when you don't have a vhost (#404, thanks @bogdomania!).
    • When operators use the /SANICK command, the snomask now says which operator did it instead of saying the target changed their nickname themselves (#360, thanks @bogdomania!).
    • History playback now includes messages that the user sent themselves (especially useful with the new bouncer-like capabilities) (#487).

    Added

    • IP cloaking is now supported (see the manual for details) (#108).
    • Users can now attach multiple clients to the same nickname (see the manual for details) (#403).
    • Oragono can now be used as a Tor hidden service (see the manual for details) (#369).

    • Support for the draft/event-playback spec (#457).
    • The TAGMSG and NICK messages are now replayable in history (#457).
    • Added the draft IRCv3 SETNAME command for changing your realname (#372).

    Changed

    • Registering an account with NickServ is now /msg NickServ register <password>, which registers the current nickname as an account, matching other services (#410).
    • Added a compatibility hack to make SASL work with ZNC 1.6.x (#261).
    • We now support the ratified message-tags spec, replacing draft/message-tags-0.2.
    • We now support the ratified message IDs spec, replacing draft/msgid.
    • The oragono.io/maxline-2 capability has replaced oragono.io/maxline, the new version now working alongside the ratified message-tags spec (#433).
    • We now support draft/resume-0.5 and the associated BRB command, replacing draft/resume-0.3.
    • Upgraded support for the /RENAME command to the latest draft of the specification.
    • Upgraded support for the /ACC command to the latest draft of the specification (#453, #455).
    • Removed the +a away mode as no other servers use it (#468, thanks @jesopo and @jwheare!).
    • Forcing trailing parameters for legacy compatibility can now be disabled in config (#479).
    • autoreplay-on-join no longer replays JOIN and PART lines by default (#474, thanks @amyspark!).
    • snomasks are no longer sent for unregistered clients (#362, thanks @bogdomania!).
    • WHOIS responses no longer include the 690 RPL_WHOISLANGUAGE numeric, as it doesn't show anything useful to other users (#516).
    • ISON now reports services (ChanServ/NickServ/etc) as online (#488).
    • All times are now reported in UTC (#480).
    • NICKSERV ENFORCE is deprecated in favor of the new NICKSERV SET ENFORCE (the old syntax is still available as an alias).
    • The WHO command is now treated like PONG in that it doesn't count as user activity, since client software often uses it automatically (#485).
    • The NAMES command now only returns results for the first given channel (#534).

    Internal Notes

    • Building Oragono is now easier (#409).
    • Official builds now use Go 1.12 (#406).
    • Our message building and parsing code is slightly faster now (#387).
    • Added the oragono.io/nope capability to encourage clients to request capabilities safely (#511).

  • v1.0.0(Feb 24, 2019)

    We've finally made it to v1.0.0! With this release, our list of need-to-haves is rounded out, and we reckon the software's ready for production use in smaller networks. slingamn and I have been working with our contributors and translators to prepare a cracker of a release. Thanks to @csmith our Docker builds have been updated, with automatic rebuilds as we develop the software. Thanks to @bogdomania our translation workflow has been improved a lot.

    • User-customizable nickname protection methods.
    • An account-only mode in which all clients must have an account and login to it (using SASL) before they can join the server.

    Thanks to Mauropek, @modinfo, @bogdomania, @Shillos, Tony Chen, and Remini for adding new translations. Thanks to @Ascrod, @bogdomania, @csmith, @jesopo, @jwheare, @remini1998, @enckse, and @iNecas for finding bugs and/or writing new features.

  • v0.12.0(Oct 15, 2018)

    There's been a host of changes in the past six months, and this Halloween release has a number of very useful improvements.

    For example, passwords are now hashed in a much better way than we did it before (jlatt's original method back from Ergonomadic was the right way to do things), the database now auto-upgrades for you when it detects a new version, thanks to Slingamn we now have vhosts, and there's been a ton of rewrites under-the-hood to improve stability and performance.

    If you have any trouble with this release, please let us know with an issue on our tracker, or by talking to us in #oragono on Freenode.

    Thanks to slingamn for a lot of heavy lifting this release and to vilmibm for contributing a documentation fix!

    Config Changes

    • allow-multiple-per-connection key removed from accounts.
    • autoupgrade key added under datastore, specifying whether to upgrade to new database versions automatically.
    • bcrypt-cost key added under accounts, to control how strongly account passwords are hashed.
    • stackimpact section removed from debug.
    • unix-bind-mode key added under server, controlling the bind mode used for unix listening sockets.
    • vhosts section added under accounts, configuring our new vhost support.
    • new oper capabilities accreg, sajoin, vhosts and chanreg added.

    Security

    • Password hashing has been improved (with current passwords being automatically upgraded to use the new method).
    • Various crashes have been resolved.

    Added

    • Added database auto-upgrades.
    • Added new subcommands to ChanServ including:
      • AMODE to allow setting persistent channel modes for users.
      • DROP to unregister a channel.
    • Added vhosts (virtual/vanity hosts), controlled via HostServ.

    Changed

    • ChanServ and NickServ now show in their help output when commands have been disabled.
    • Channel keys and modes are now stored for registered channels.
    • Client capability handling rewritten under-the-hood.
    • Disabled services commands now show as disabled (rather than being completely hidden).
    • Many under-the-hood optimisations (thanks @slingamn!).
    • Rehashing is now more consistent and safe.

    Removed

    • Removed StackImpact debug support, as we don't find it useful these days.

    Fixed

    • Fixed LUSERS to make it display correct client count and output correct params (thanks @moortens!.
    • Fixed PROXY support for IPv6 clients.
    • Fixed SAMODE crash when using it on a channel you're not joined to.
    • Fixed WHOIS so that RPL_WHOISACCOUNT is now sent correctly.
    • Fixed fakelag timing to better match expected values.
    • Fixed issue where incoming and outgoing private messages were being incorrectly modified (a space was being added to the end) due to a bug with our protocol handling.
    • Fixed password hashing method, with existing passwords being auto-upgraded to use the new method.

  • v0.11.0(Apr 15, 2018)

    And v0.11.0 finally comes along! This release has been in the works for almost four months now, with an alpha and beta helping square away the issues.

    We're adding a lot of features to improve debugging, better support international users, and make things better for network administrators. Among the new features, you can use the LANGUAGE command to set a custom server language (see our CrowdIn to contribute), expose a debugging pprof endpoint, reserve nicknames with NickServ, and force email verification for new user accounts. On the improvements side we have a CAP REQ fix, and we now have a manual that contains a nice overview of Oragono's documentation.

    If you have any trouble with this release, please let us know with an issue on our tracker, or by talking to us in #oragono on Freenode.

    Thanks a bunch to everyone for the help with this release – especially to our translators and to Slingamn for being an awesome co-maintainer!

  • v0.11.0-beta(Apr 10, 2018)

    This is a beta preview of the v0.11.0 release, which is actually likely to come this weekend. There's a whole lot of useful, important changes in this release including better debugging features, languages, nick reservation, email verification for new accounts, and a CAP REQ fix! However, it could be pretty unstable on a count of being a beta and simply the number of changes packed into it.

    If you have any trouble with this release, please let us know with an issue on our tracker, or by talking to us in #oragono on Freenode.

    Thanks a bunch for all the help with this release – especially to our translators and to Slingamn for being an awesome co-maintainer!

    • motd-formatting is now enabled by default.
    • nick-reservation section added under accounts, configuring our new nickname ownership abilities.
    • nofakelag and unregister oper classes added.
    • pprof-listener key added under debug (disabled by default).
    • skip-server-password key added under accounts, to better support certain clients.
    • verify-timeout default value changed from 120 hours to 32 hours under accounts/registration.

  • v0.11.0-alpha(Jan 23, 2018)

    This is an alpha preview of the v0.11.0 release, which is likely to come next weekend.

    We've introduced a lot and fixed a pretty serious bug around CAP! To be specific, we've included translation support, along with a fairly fully-fleshed-out Turkish translation and some extra proposed spec support.

    To enable translations, just change enabled to true, in the languages section (and make sure the path is correct). After this, connect and send LANGUAGE tr_TR as noted in the related spec, and you'll be using Turkish!

    Added

    • Added new Turkish translation (thanks to Yaser!).
    • Added proposed IRCv3 capability draft/languages.
    • Added proposed IRCv3 capability draft/resume.
    • Added user modes, including:
      • B: Mark yourself as a bot, and display that you're a bot in WHOIS.

    Changed

    • Message IDs are now much shorter and easier to read – down from 39 characters to 16 while preserving a very similar gaurantee of uniqueness (thanks @prawnsalad for bringing up this issue).
