mIRC is a full featured Internet Relay Chat client for Windows that can be used to communicate, share, play or work with others on IRC networks around the world, either in multi-user group conferences or in one-to-one private discussions.
It has a clean, practical interface that is highly configurable and supports features such as buddy lists, file transfers, multi-server connections, SSL encryption, proxy support, UTF-8 display, customizable sounds, spoken messages, tray notifications, message logging, and more.
mIRC also has a powerful scripting language that can be used both to automate mIRC and to create applications that perform a wide range of functions from network communications to playing games.
mIRC has been in development for over a decade and is constantly being improved and updated with new technologies.
This version of mIRC is primarily a security release. mIRC users are advised to upgrade to this version due to a security issue related to very long nicknames on non-standard servers.
Several other small issues have also been fixed in this release.
Although this is a minor update, it includes important changes and all users are advised to upgrade.
Full list of Fixes, Changes and Additions:
1.Fixed nickname bug where very long nicknames (hundreds of characters
in length) sent by the server would cause mIRC to crash.
2.Updated to PCRE v7.8 and OpenSSL 0.9.8i libraries.
3.Added Script Editor option to disable line numbers.
4.Fixed /toolbar bug where setting a bitmap for a default button was
not working correctly.
5.Added custom dialog support for "rich" editbox property that allows
an arbitrary "limit" on the amount of text.
6.Fixed window listbox display bug when moving the horizontal scrollbar
all the way to the right.
