Anope 1.7.23 released - Upgrade recommended.

** Update **

We have re-released .23 with a revision 'b' as an oversight was made on loading encrypted databases which has now been resolved.

If you previously updated to .23 you needn't update again unless you have problems.

****

Since releasing 1.7.22 just over 2 weeks ago, we've continued to polish the 1.7 branch for the eventual release of 1.8.

We've fixed various issues some shown below:

Buffer overflows with both ChanServ and NickServ (Win32 Crashbug in 1.7.22)

FreeBSD 7 dns_nss.so.1 issue.
Expanded behaviour of OperServ Ignore & introduced modular database back end meaning Ignores are saved even after a services restart.
Various typographic errors are fixed in help/lang files.
Expanded behaviour of OperServ Modlist
Enabled UMODE functionality for InspIRCd 1.1

Unfortunately, we encountered some problems with the way in which Chanserv & Nickserv are storing passwords which has led us to make a sad but needed decision to break the long time standing backwards database compatibility with versions prior to this one. - This means that once you have upgraded to 1.7.23 (or any SVN build after revision 1462) you will be unable to go back.

Please make sure you take a back up prior to upgrading just in case you do need to revert!

We cannot stress the importance of this advice, and assure you it was with a heavy heart we broke the compatibility and not a decision we took lightly.
