eggdrop: update to 1.9.2

Eggdrop v1.9.2:

 General changes:
    - Added CAP 302 support, and generally enhance CAP support
    - Enabled threaded core DNS requests as the default method for DNS lookups;
      this can be disabled with ./configure --disable-tdns
    - Added support for the MONITOR CAP capability, allowing tracking of online
      and offline nicknames
    - Added support for the 005 BOT flag, allowing tracking of users that
      declare themselves as bots to the IRC server
    - Added SSL status to the .bottree command, denoted with a '=' symbol
    - Fixed allowing Eggdrop to process message-tags even if the message-tags
      capability is not explicitly requested
    - Alt-nick is now used before a randomly generated nickname if the requested
      nickname is rejected as invalid by the server. This feature is now
      divorced of any previous dependence on the keep-nick setting, with the
      reasoning that getting the Eggdrop onto the server with a random nick is
      more important than keeping a nickname and not ever joining, particularly
      from a troubleshooting standpoint
    - RAWT binds returning a '1' now block similar RAW binds from triggering
      by the same activity (but RAW binds cannot block a RAWT bind- use a RAWT!)
    - Fixed mistakenly requiring a flag for the 'listen script' command
    - Fixed an issue with Eggdrop not properly updating the account-tracking
      status

  Botnet changes:
    - None

  Tcl API changes:
    - Added the 'monitor' command, which allows interaction with the CAP
      MONITOR capability
    - Added the 'isircbot' command, which returns if a user has registered as a
      bot with the IRC server
    - Added the 'server list' command, which lists servers added to Eggdrop
    - Added the USERNOTICE bind to the Twitch module
    - Added a 'values' argument to the 'cap' command, outputting the display of
      CAP 302 values, if any, associated with each capability

  Module changes:
    - Fixed bug in PBKDF2 that caused PBKDF2-only environments to not store
      hashes properly, resulting in 'bad password' errors after relinking
    - Deprecated the DNS module (functionality has been moved core Eggdrop
      code). Eggdrop now natively handles asynchronous DNS (which was the
      purpose of the DNS module), so the DNS module is no longer needed
    - Fixed a bug with the Twitch module where it would crash on .rehash and
      .restart

  Eggdrop config file changes:
    - Added the 'extended-join' setting, to enable the extended-join CAP
      capability
    - Moved DNS-related settings out of the modules section and into the core
      config area
    - No longer load the (now-deprecated) DNS module by default

eggdrop: Update to 1.9.1

Eggdrop v1.9.1:

  General changes:
    - Fixed an issue where an IP address was incorrectly overwritten after a
      CTCP chat was received
    - Fixed an issue where Eggdrop would occassionally crash if no port was
      provided when the server was added
    - Error, instead of silently change, when adding a bot with invalid ascii
      characters in the handle (.+bot)
    - Removed an incorrect error message after restarting the bot with the
      PBKDF2 module loaded
    - Further improved error reporting for socket connections

  Botnet changes:
    - None

  Tcl API changes:
    - Fixed the isaway command to properly track AWAY server messages

  Module changes:
    - None

  Eggdrop config file changes:
    - Added Libera Chat to the accepted server types
_________________________________________________________________

Eggdrop v1.9.0:

  General changes:
    - Fixed an issue where adding a server without a port could create a
      condition where Eggdrop would crash on startup
    - Fixed a bad merge in 1.9.0 that resulted in away status not being
      properly tracked by Eggdrop
    - Fixed/clarified some of the terrible error messages we've all come to
      know and love for socket connections

  Botnet changes:
    - None

  Tcl API changes:
    - None

  Module changes:
    - Fixed a bug in the CTCP module that resulted in an IP in the socket table
      being incorrectly overwritten, causing trouble with future CTCP chat
      requests. This was also prevents some Eggdrop's from incorrectly throwing
      a Tcl error during a rehash
    - Fixed an error message that incorrectly appeared after a restart when
      using the PBKDF2 module

  Eggdrop config file changes:
    - None

Log message:
eggdrop: Update to 1.8.4.

The major changes in the release include:

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

Log message:
chat/eggdrop: Update to 1.8.3.

- Loosely based on joyent/pkgsrc/pull/38 by ismell@.
- Removed the static build option as it didn't work at all.

Eggdrop v1.8.3

Tcl-API changes:
  - Added "handle ipaddress botport userport" syntax to the addbot Tcl
    command.
General changes:
  - Fixed a bug where ssl-enabled ports were not able to be reverted to
    non-SSL ports via the setuser Tcl command.
  - SSL certs: Fail earlier if SSL certs have issues. Also fatally error
    if only one of ssl-privatekey/certificate config settings is set.
  - Correctly check against invalid flags with the .match partyline
    command and matchattr Tcl command.
  - Prevent loop when writing to stdout in foreground mode that results
    in a segfault.
  - Lots of additional error checking against values for .+bot, .chaddr
    and the Tcl addbot command.
  - No longer trigger CHON binds when returning from a control script.
  - Added the '.resetconsole' command, allowing a user to reset console
    flags to those specified in the config file.
Botnet changes:
  - Added the 'l' console flag to handle messages sent from linked bots,
    reserving the 'b' console flag to handle messages related to botnet-
    linkings.
  - Split the "raw share traffic" flag into incoming (h) and outgoing (g).
  - Fixed a race condition in SSL userfile sharing, causing the transfer
    to stall with 511 bytes missing.
  - Fixed a bug introduced in v1.8.2 with copy-to-tmp, where the userfile
    being received is now properly being sent to a tmpfile first if
    copy-to-tmp is set.
  - Botnet sharing:  A slave will now use the address of the hub (to
    which it's succesfully connected) instead of an IP given by the hub
    which was wrong in certain cases (especially in NAT situations).
  - Bots request existing channel flags for users upon adding a new
    channel.
Deprecations:
  - Deprecated the "ipv4address:botport/userport" and
    "[ipv6address]:botport/userport" address formats for addbot.

Eggdrop v1.8.2

eggdrop.conf changes:
  - temp-path renamed to tmpfile and its purpose changed.
    It is now only used by filesys.mod/transfer.mod and optional.
  - blowfish-use-mode is a new setting for Tcl encrypt/decrypt.
    Allows using CBC instead of ECB mode for encryption.
    Tcl scripts not using the same mode are incompatible with each other.
    Does NOT affect password hashing for the userfile.
    CBC will be the NEW DEFAULT in a later version of eggdrop.
    Will be removed in a future Eggdrop version and forced to CBC.
  - global-* is renamed to default-*.
    This clarifies their purpose as default channel settings,
    not ones that override for existing channels.
    global-* still works for backwards compatibility.
Tcl-API changes:
  - encrypt/decrypt: These commands can now encrypt/decrypt in CBC
    mode instead of the current ECB mode. This does NOT affect password
    hashing for the userfile.
  - getuser: Can now be called without a second argument. Returns a flat
    key/value list (dict) of settings for that user.
  - configureargs: New global variable holding the ./configure arguments.
    This is a _string_, not a list. User needs to split it themselves.
  - maskhost: New types 30-39 set hostmask to * (to allow e.g. nick!*@*).
General changes:
  - Improved command line argument parsing.
  - Portuguese language file added.
  - Eggdrop no longer changes nick on every rehash if altnick uses '?'.
  - Terminal-mode (commandline -nt) always has full owner access now.
  - Allow spaces in server passwords in serverlist.

Eggdrop v1.8.1

- Autobotchk - Added functionality improvements to the tried-and-true
  autobotchk script, allowing characters such as {} and [] to be used in
  filenames
- .who linkedbot output - Truncates listings appropriately
- Minutely hook - The minutely hook was only called for missed minutes mod
  60, now it is still listed in minutes but it can be greater than 60.
- New OpenSSL version detection
- Moved previously hard-coded version strings to
  version.h and update them via misc/setpatch instead of misc/addpatch
- Compile cleanup - Fixed some compiler warnings
- General bugfixes

Eggdrop v1.8.0

- Support for utf-8 encoding with a fallback of iso8859-1
- Support for IPv6
- SSL support has been added for all kinds of connections, including
  certificate verification and authorization, and partyline SSL.
- The wire module has been removed from eggdrop
- Config file changes: e.g. my-ip and my-hostname settings are replaced
  by vhost4, vhost6 and the listen-addr.
