What's New in This Release:
  • ./contrib/Debian/ngircd.init: Make sure no stale PID file is left over when (re-)starting ngIRCd.
  • Change ./contrib/ and update ./doc/Platforms.txt to allow usernames up to 8 characters.
  • Call arc4random_stir() in forked subprocesses, when available. This is required by FreeBSD <10 and current NetBSD at least to correctly initialize the "arc4" random number generator on these platforms.
  • Update our own Debian package configuration and fix the default path of the "HelpFile" of the "full" package variants.
