The Anope project announces the availability of version 1.8.0, the new stable release of their IRC services package.
It’s been a long couple of years, with many changes both to the product and indeed to the team as a whole.
For those of you with Modules which won’t work beyond 1.7.21 we understand your plight and will be available to assist module authors if they need a hand revising their mods for general consumption.
We want everyone to move away from 1.7.x as a development branch and join us on -stable. (with your modules of course!)
