Deprecation of NickServ ACCESS and Miscellaneous Options

Hello all. I wanted to discuss some upcoming features that will be deprecated and removed. I will write more beyond the jump break, but here is a quick rundown:
  1. The NickServ ACCESS feature is being removed. This feature allowed the whitelisting of hostmasks in NickServ so that it would not require authentication.
  2. Various NickServ and ChanServ miscellaneous configuration options are being removed. This allowed setting custom fields such as social media accounts. Going forward, the only supported field will be 'URL', already sent to users when they join channels.

Introducing the New Techtronix Web Chat Client

Greetings, everyone! Hope you all are enjoying the new year so far. I wanted to talk about something I have soft-launched in the wild for over a month - the new web client for connecting to the network from the comfort of your browser. Do not worry, though: it is still powered by KiwiIRC.
