When UnrealIRCd 4.0.0 was released on December 24, 2015 it became our new 'stable' series and we announced the phase-out of the old 3.2.x series.

On January 1, 2017 all support for UnrealIRCd 3.2.x stopped. You should not be using UnrealIRCd 3.2.x anymore as security fixes are no longer available.

UnrealIRCd 4 comes with a simple tool to convert your existing 3.2.x configuration files to 4.x format to make upgrading easy, see Upgrading from 3.2.x.
