The mIRC beta is a version of mIRC that is not yet ready for public use and is being made available for testing purposes only.

We need feedback to resolve any issues in the beta before we can release a final, stable version of mIRC for public use.

You should only download the beta if you are willing to spend time dealing with bugs and submitting bug reports.

Please see the following post, if there is one, for the latest beta release and a list of changes.

  Fixed /server password backward compatibility issue.
2.Item 22, http://forums.mirc.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/260037

  not resend it if waiting for reply.

  Now only updates IAL after ^event.
4.Item 22, added 'l' option to WHOX parameters. This is not used by mIRC

  Needed partial rewrite of IAL routines.

1.Extended $com() to handle one dimensional single-byte array results
  which are now copied into the specified &binvar.
2.Fixed $com() memory bug that resulted in memory not being freed after
  a dispatch pointer request.
3.Fixed on RAWMODE not triggering for invalid mode changes such as
  a channel mode change for a user that is not on the channel.
4.Fixed /dns bug that returned IP address instead of error if it was
  unable to reverse lookup IP address.
5.Added sha256 fingerprint to server SSL certificate dialog.
6.Extended /dns to parse nick!user@host and extract the host for
7.Added -nowine command line option to disable Wine support for testing
8.Fixed custom dialog incorrect client size bug due to menubar height.
9.Fixed $insong/$inmidi/$inwave bugs with appended text.
10.Fixed if/while statement parsing bug.
11.Updated to OpenSSL 1.0.2k library.
12.Added "Control key enables mark/copy" option to Options/Other/Keys
13.Added support for middle-click mouse button to close tab in
14.Added SASL/NickServ support as a per server setting in the servers
   dialog. SASL is supported using CAP. NickServ is supported by
   logging in when numeric 001 is received.
15.Added /server -l method parameter where method can be: pass, sasl,
   external, msg, nickserv.
16.Added $server().method property to return server login method.
17.Added CAP support for extended-join and account-notify. These are
   enabled automatically on connect if available and provide the account
   names of users in JOIN/ACCOUNT events. ACCOUNT events are not shown
   but are used to update $ial().account. They trigger as RAW events.
18.Added CAP support for away-notify. This is automatically enabled if
   available and makes the server send AWAY events to the client
   indicating the away state of users on the same channels as you. AWAY
   events are not shown but are used to set $ial().away. They trigger as
   RAW events.
19.Added CAP support for account-tag. This is automatically enabled if
   available and makes the server include the user's @acount=name in the
   message-tag for messages sent by that user.
20.Added CAP support for invite-notify. This is automatically enabled if
   available and makes the server send these events to the client for
   users invited to their channel. These events are not shown but
   trigger as RAW events.
21.Added CAP support for chghost. This is automatically enabled if
   available and makes the server send user@host updates for nicknames
   on the same channels to update the IAL. These events are not shown
   but trigger as RAW events.
22.Added /ialfill #channel command that fills the IAL by sending a /WHO
   #channel to the server and processing the WHO reply. If the server
   supports WHOX, an extended /WHO #channel %acdfhlnrstu,T is sent
   to receive the account name, where T is a number that uniquely
   identifies the WHO request and is set to 995.
23.Extended mark/copy to allow copying a single character by initially
   marking more than one character.
24.Fixed file change monitor bug that was causing timers to be blocked
   while the file change dialog was displayed.
25.Added $ial().name to return users's real name from the /who reply.
26.Added $ial().id that is a unique id number for each new entry in
   the IAL.
27.Extended /ialmark to allow setting arbitrary marks using the format:

   /ialmark -nr <nick> [name] [text]

   -n = the [name] of the mark. If -n is not used, the default name
   'mark' is used.

   -r = remove the mark

   Marks can be accessed using $ialmark(nick,N/mark) and properties
   'mark' and 'value'.

28.Optimized $ial() when looking up just a nickname ie. no wildcards
   and not nick!user@host format. This allows an instant hash lookup
   instead of a slower wildcard/address search.
