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.

The latest beta can be downloaded here. It includes the following changes:

Beta v7.51.60 changes:
1.Item 1, changed.
2.Item 2, changed.
3.Item 3, http://ircv3.net/specs/core/sts-3.3.html
Tested using /server irc.unrealircd.org 6667
4.Item 4, added.
5.Item 5, fixed.
6.Item 6, https://forums.mirc.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/261433
7.Item 7, renewed.

1.Changed website/forums to use HTTPS/SSL connections.
2.Changed HTTP requests, such as the update check, to use HTTPS/SSL.
Older versions of mIRC do not support this, so continue to use non-SSL
3.Added support for IRCv3 STS secure connection feature that directs
clients to switch from a non-SSL to an SSL port when connecting to a
server. STS port and duration settings are saved in servers.ini file.
4.Added /server -u switch that makes the server connection ignore STS
5.Fixed SSL connect behaviour that prevented a retry connect attempt
for non-critical SSL errors.
6.Extended $file() to include .path, .name, and .ext properties.
7.Updated code signing certificate.
