I bet you're wondering what Asuka is. Well, it's the new version of the IRCD that we are currently working on, and currently testing. You've probably noticed the testing we've been doing as it has introduced a couple of unexpected side effects, such as the recent ability to deop L, and the ability to join local (to the server) channels.
These issues caused some problems, but they've now been resolved.
And because of this, we're giving out a little bit of information regarding Asuka, perhaps the most important being: It looks like Asuka will be able to cater for 4 times as many users on existing hardware. That's 4 times as many users per IRC server without upgrading the hardware.
We're also investigating adding an 'auditorium' mode for channels which will allow us to hold interviews or reports on big games more easily and without the attendant spam you get in normal channels. Whether or not we include this is still open for discussion.
