IRC4Fun News (December 2017) Welcome to the December 2017 IRC4Fun News! We’ve been busy (as usual) making IRC4Fun better for our users, channels, groups, organizations and projects!

IRC4Fun changes IRCd software from InspIRCd to ChatIRCd (a fork of Charybdis) We’re excited to announce that we have completed our transition of IRCd software from InspIRCd to ChatIRCd, which is a modern (and maintained) fork of Charybdis.

We’re pleased to announce that Gaga.IRC4Fun.net has been relinked to IRC4Fun under siniStar’s administration. It is located in Quebec, Canada. It will be replacing muse.*, due to be retired in the very near future.

Today we migrated all IRC4Fun Servers to UnrealIRCd in order to fix bugs encountered by channels and users that would occasionally cause desyncs. With this change, most user & channel modes should remain un-affected, while some may have disappeared and new ones are present. Some IRC4Fun users will remember UnrealIRCd; as we migrated from it
As some users may have noticed today, we upgraded IRC4Fun Servers to the latest stable version (2.0.15) which should resolve some bugs and channel/user desync issues. All servers were upgraded successfully in less than 1 minute and the network is at full operation. Thank you for being an IRC4Fun user!
