News about undernet
[ April 12, 2002 ]

This is and informational update on what is happening on The Undernet.

The Undernet Coders have been working hard and steady on server release
2.10.11. This has been undergoing beta testing and some of you may have
noticed or been asked about a few things that you had no idea about so I
will explain them here and will also keep you updated when new features are
added and modified.

Please note these features are not implemented on all servers as of yet,
but will be appearing network wide soon.

* We made it faster, a lot faster and a lot more efficient.

* Users can now set +r on any channel they have ops in. If a channel is +r
then only users who are logged into X (have a username) can join the
channel, this can help a lot with flood nets. This is not restricted to
registered channels, this feature is for all channels.

* Users can now see who users are (the user's username) when they /whois
another user.
Instead of having to /msg X verify user. For example:
[20:49:54] --- [Isomer] (dahoose@myhostname.com) : :)
[20:49:54] --- [Isomer] #channel #channel2 #channel3
[20:49:54] --- [Isomer] blagh.xx.us.undernet.org :
[20:49:54] --- [Isomer] is an IRC Operator
[20:49:54] --- [Isomer] Isomer is logged in as
[20:49:54] --- [Isomer] idle 00:01:29, signon: Fri Apr 12 17:49:14
[20:49:54] --- [Isomer] End of WHOIS list.
The Numeric used is "330". The message appears backwards due to a quirk in
the IRC protocol. We might change it before we release it proper for the
network. A script has been written to fix the output of the new numeric
until it is implemented in mIRC. For now it can be pasted into your remote
file. This will work for /whois <nick> or /whois <nick> <nick>

raw 330:*: { echo $color(whois) 
$iif($gettok($readini(mirc.ini,options,n2),26,44),-a,-s) $2 $4- $3 | halt }

* Your server will remember who you are logged in as, and will
automatically log you in to X again after net splits so you don't have to
log in again. If X splits on its own, without a net split, then this 
feature is working now.

As new releases are done we will keep you updated.

Thank You
