Because full support for syslog is included, the old way of logging to files was removed. Switch to syslog-ng is recommended as it will make your logs cleaner. Silent mode is now switched on so it is impossible to redirect users who should not have access to the service you provide.
The whole NMDC protocol and most of
EXTENDEDPROTOCOL are now supported. Version 1.0.0
was released in secret, but it would crash with a
SIGSEGV when some older clients tried to connect
to it. This version fixes that bug.
Aside from bugfixes, this release adds the new option allow_non_us_ascii_nicks. This should be used very carefully, because some clients do not support UTF-8 in nicks, so it would not be possible to download anything for/from them.
