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 for the latest beta release and a list of changes.

Experimental. Required significant changes to code. Uses undocumented

8.Item 8 and 9, https://forums.mirc.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/266720
Required important changes to the regex and these identifiers,
so need testing to ensure changes are working correctly and are
backward compatible.
9.Item 10, updated.

Changes:
1.Changed how on KEYUP/KEYDOWN are processed. This affects the values
returned in $keyval and $keychar for combined key presses.
2.Reverted change to $cnick() so that it returns default values for
non-existent nicks.
3.Changed how Control+Break key is handled so that it will work only
when mIRC is the active application.
4.Updated PCRE regex library to v8.44.
5.Updated LibZip library to v1.6.1.
6.Added $width() and $height() sixth $true/$false parameter to enable
custom window-specific measurement.
7.Added support for irc hotlinks that uses the non-standard plus sign
prefixed port number format, such as +6697.
8.Extended $bfind() to support regex searches using:

$bfind(&binvar, N, M, [name]).regex

Where M is a regular expression when .regex is used. The name parameter
is the $regml() name.

9.Extended $regml()/$regmlex() to save result to a &binvar using:

$regml([name], n, [&binvar])
$regmlex([name], m, n, [&binvar])

When saving to a &binvar, returns the length of the saved text.

10.Updated OpenSSL library to v1.1.1e.
