RubIRCd v0.1a "maiden voyage" Released
I am happy to announce the first release of RubIRCd -- version 0.1a "maiden voyage". Keep in mind that this is an alpha release and not all functionality has been added yet. Many commands are still missing and there is currently no support for server-to-server linking. However, the server has been tested on both CRuby and JRuby and stays up as a standalone server just fine. Multiple clients can connect via plaintext or SSL, join channels, change nicks, chat in channels, and send private messages. WHO, WHOIS, ADMIN, INFO, VERSION, and other commands also work. Please test them out and report any bugs at http://www.devux.org/projects/rubircd/issues or on IRC at irc.devux.org in #sysadmininkudzu.
You can download this release at the following locations in tar.bz2, tar.gz, and zip formats:
One final note: The listen and SSL ports in the configuration file, options.yml, are still set to 1997 and 1998. These were just used for testing since I already have a production server listening on TCP ports 6667 and 6697 where I do some of the development for this project. Feel free to change them. They will be changed to standard ports at some point.
