== The Big News ==
 +
 
 +
=== Multiple networks per user ===
 +
Think about new users as "user groups", while new networks are similar to old users.
 +
 
 +
To login to ZNC, use <code>user/network:password</code> as password, or <code>user/network</code> as username.
 +
Also, you can switch between different networks on the fly using the <code>/znc JumpNetwork</code> command.
 +
 
 +
When you first run ZNC 1.0, it will automatically convert your config and create a network called "default" for each user. Settings from each user are moved into these "default" networks. When you log into ZNC without setting a network, the "default" network will automatically be chosen for you.
 +
 
 +
Users can create new networks up to an admin-configurable limit. By default, this limit is one network per user.
 +
 
 +
Existing user-per-network setups can be migrated to the new multinetwork setup using the <code>/znc MoveNetwork</code> command.
 +
 
 +
You can see a list of networks via <code>/znc ListNetworks</code> and <code>/znc ListAllUserNetworks</code>.
 +
 
 +
=== Timezones ===
 +
Timezone can now be configured by name, e.g. "GMT-9", or "Europe/Madrid".
 +
Old TimezoneOffset setting (which was the number of hours between the server's timezone and the user's timezone) is deprecated and should not be used anymore. Its old value is lost. The reason for this change is that the old TimezoneOffset was not trivial to count and often broke during switches to/from  daylight savings time.
 +
 
 +
So if you previously used the TimezoneOffset option, you now have to configure your timezone again (via the [[webadmin]] or [[controlpanel]] module).
 +
 
 +
=== No more ZNC-Extra ===
 +
Most modules from [[ZNC-Extra]] are now enabled in the usual installation. It was pointless to have them shipped in the tarball, but requiring user to add some weird flags to ./configure.
  
//TODO: need to reword almost every line here...
+
Antiidle, fakeonline and motdfile modules are dropped.

The Big News[edit]

Multiple networks per user[edit]

Think about new users as "user groups", while new networks are similar to old users.

To login to ZNC, use user/network:password as password, or user/network as username. Also, you can switch between different networks on the fly using the /znc JumpNetwork command.

When you first run ZNC 1.0, it will automatically convert your config and create a network called "default" for each user. Settings from each user are moved into these "default" networks. When you log into ZNC without setting a network, the "default" network will automatically be chosen for you.

Users can create new networks up to an admin-configurable limit. By default, this limit is one network per user.

Existing user-per-network setups can be migrated to the new multinetwork setup using the /znc MoveNetwork command.

You can see a list of networks via /znc ListNetworks and /znc ListAllUserNetworks.

Timezones[edit]

Timezone can now be configured by name, e.g. "GMT-9", or "Europe/Madrid". Old TimezoneOffset setting (which was the number of hours between the server's timezone and the user's timezone) is deprecated and should not be used anymore. Its old value is lost. The reason for this change is that the old TimezoneOffset was not trivial to count and often broke during switches to/from daylight savings time.

So if you previously used the TimezoneOffset option, you now have to configure your timezone again (via the webadmin or controlpanel module).

No more ZNC-Extra[edit]

Most modules from ZNC-Extra are now enabled in the usual installation. It was pointless to have them shipped in the tarball, but requiring user to add some weird flags to ./configure.

Antiidle, fakeonline and motdfile modules are dropped.

Away module is renamed to awaystore to better explain its meaning.
