History

UnrealIRCd was originally based on EliteIRCd, which was founded from DALnet's DreamForge IRCd.Stskeeps, Lead Developer. [irc://irc.unrealircd.com/unreal-support irc.unrealircd.com, #unreal-support] (IRC). "UnrealIRCd's IRC Support Channel." Retrieved on 2008-05-23.] Nevertheless, since the UnrealIRCd team rewrote most, if not all, of the EliteIRCd code, it is commonly referred to as a fork of DreamForge rather than EliteIRCd. UnrealIRCd started out as the IRCd for the mp3fans.net IRC network. Later it was also used on the global-irc.net IRC network.

About a year later, codemastr, currently an UnrealIRCd developer,cite web|url=http://www.unrealircd.com/staff.php|title=UnrealIRCd Staff/Contributers|work=UnrealIRCd website|accessdate=2008-05-29|format=HTML] joined the UnrealIRCd developer team.

Later, Syzop, also currently a developer, joined the developer team.

As of May 24, 2008, nearly a decade after development first started, in May 1999, UnrealIRCd has come from EliteIRCd, a 15-year-old's IRCd, to being in use on more than 1,500 servers, more than any other IRCd.

Future

On July 13, 2007 Stskeeps announced that the future Unreal4.0 would be a fork of InspIRCd.
