InspIRCd v2 is coming to the end of its lifetime!

Fixes for security vulnerabilities will be provided until 2020-06-01 but after this date v2 will no longer be maintained.

InspIRCd v3 contains many new features including full support for all currently ratified IRCv3 extensions and WebSocket connections.

InspIRCd v3 installation instructions are available here and a list of breaking changes is available here.

The "cap" Module

Description

This module implements support for the IRCv3 Client Capability Negotiation extension.

This is used by clients to allow the use of modern IRC features without breaking compatibility with older clients.

Configuration

To load this module use the following <module> tag:

<module name="m_cap.so">

This module requires no other configuration.

Commands

LIST
LS
REQ :[-]<cap>[ [-]<cap>]+
Allows clients to enable capabilities, disable capabilities, and view the capabilities they have enabled.

Special Notes

The /CAP command should generally not be executed by users. It is intended to be an entirely internal feature which is executed automatically by clients. Adding and removing capabilities manually may break your client.
