Dear mIRC User,
mIRC v6.35 has been released today.
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.How to upgrade?
As you know mIRC is distributed in a self-extracting cabinet (mirc635.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.
