Dear mIRC User,
mIRC v6.32 has been released today.
This version of mIRC builds on recent releases by focusing on stability and reliability and addressing the various issues that have been reported by users since the last release. It includes cosmetic changes to the interface, fixes, optimizations, and improvements to the scripting language.How to upgrade?
As you know mIRC is distributed in a self-extracting cabinet (mirc632.exe) that helps you to install mIRC on your PC. Simply download the cabinet and run the installer. Follow the instructions the installer program gives to you. When upgrading all your old settings and scripts will stay as they were, if you want that. Read the questions the installer program asks with care and nothing can go wrong. You will be chatting with the new mIRC in no time. If you get stuck or if you want to find out more about a certain feature, just click on a Help button or browse the Help file and you should find lots of hints to help you out. We also give some information on changed, improved and fixed features and functions below.Where to download?

.Fixes, improvements and new features.
In particular, mIRC can now handle longer nick names, channel names, and messages, as well as longer variable values in the scripting language.
Various other changes include:
Added support for network-specific window position saving.
Fixed mouse wheel handling of scrolling with high resolution mice.
A "Check for Updates" option has been added to the mIRC Help menu to automatically check for new versions of mIRC.
Optimized INI file handling to only update those parts of a file that have changed. This decreases file writes and speeds up a number of features in mIRC, including USB drive usage.
Improved display speed of text in all windows.
Fixed multi-byte text-wrapping display issues.
Fixed and optimized a number of @window display features, including the way tabstops are handled.
Improved unicode support in the $mp3() identifier.
In total there have been over 50 changes to this version and although most of them are only small fixes and tweaks, we hope that they result in a more useful and stable mIRC for you.
