~=~ v0.9.0, Fixes and Production Use ~=~

Hey everyone, dan here! It’s been a while since the last release and the last post, so let’s go over what’s changed since then and what’s in mind for the future.

First of all, the new release. You can find the downloads [here]. In v0.9.0 comes:

There is some new functionality, such as the +R flag allowing users to block all messages from unregistered users, but this release is mostly fixes and some updates for production use (such as allowing the HAProxy PROXY command for finer-grained TLS control).

Thanks to both Euan Kemp (@euank) and Shivaram Lingamneni (@slingamn) for the help with this release as well, it’s much appreciated.

In terms of future plans, the ones laid out in the last post are basically still valid. I’m hoping to get IP Cloaking soon (but it is a complex feature), and other than that XLINE/DNSBL are the next ones in line. Work’s been fairly busy lately so I haven’t been able to spend as much time on this as I’d like to, but I’ll always be here working on it :)

As always if you have any other ideas or want to send me feedback, feel free to pop into our IRC channel (#oragono on Freenode) or send me an email!

P.S. Let me know if you want to catch up at freenode #live! I’ll be rocking around there somewhere with some of the other IRCv3 crew.


~=~ v0.8.1, Packages And Direction ~=~

Hey everyone, this is the first post on the new News section of our site! I’m planning to make a post each time we release a new version of Oragono, so people can keep an eye on server updates just by following the RSS feed here: feed.xml

Let’s talk about the new release. You can find it [here]. v0.8.1 adds:

As well, thanks to Sean Enck (@enckse) we have a new Arch Linux AUR package here. This should help users on Arch more easily install Oragono for the first time!

We’re also now a Github organisation, which holds Oragono as well as some of the dependencies we’ve taken, modified and used.

In terms of future direction, there’s a bunch of features I have planned. Let me quickly talk about each of them:

So that’s how things are at the moment, and where I plan taking things forwards. Have any other ideas or want to send me feedback? Feel free to pop into our IRC channel (#oragono on Freenode) or send me an email.

Thanks again to everyone submitting bugs, fixes, and just giving their feedback! It’s exciting to have this be used and useful out there, and I hope we can keep making it better as we go.
