Dear mIRC User,
mIRC v6.33 has been released today.
This version of mIRC continues to build on recent releases and addresses a number of issues that have been reported by users since the last release. It includes improvements, changes and fixes to a number of features. How to upgrade?
As you know mIRC is distributed in a self-extracting cabinet (mirc633.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, a new editbox "automatic" lines option has been added that dynamically changes the size of the editbox in a window to show the whole of your typed message, up to half the size of the window. This allows you to easily see and review a long, multiple-line message while keeping the size of the editbox small when it is not in use.
Various other changes include:
Added support for the transfer of files larger than four gigabytes.
Added /var -g switch to allow you to set global variable values.
Added $input() identifier combobox support.
Fixed UTF-8 text-wrapping display bug.
Fixed switchbar display button-sorting display bug.
Fixed window positions not being saved correctly for some windows.
Fixed server connection not remembering SSL status in some situations.
In total there have been almost 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.
