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.

1.Item 4, fixed.
2.Item 5, fixed.
3.Item 6, https://forums.mirc.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/265755.
4.Relating to https://forums.mirc.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/265742
Reverted change as did not resolve issue.

Beta v7.56.71 changes:
1.Item 3, https://forums.mirc.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/265736
2.Relating to https://forums.mirc.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/265742
Several changes were made to the about dialog that might resolve
this issue.

Beta v7.56.20 changes:
1.Item 2, fixed. This should fix the R6034 Windows error caused by mIRC
loading an external OpenSSL library to determine if it is a newer
version. This feature can now only be enabled by manually by setting
"load=0" in the [ssl] section in mirc.ini.
2.In addition, all libraries (LibZip, OpenSSL, TagLib, Zlib) were
recompiled.
3.The change in the last beta relating to XP has been reverted, so this
beta now works with XP again.

Beta v7.56.11 changes:
1.Item 1, updated.
2.Relating to https://forums.mirc.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/265700
Changed how OpenSSL is compiled. This means that it is no longer
compatible with XP. This may resolve the R6034 Windows error.

Changes:
1.Updated OpenSSL library to v1.1.1c.
2.Changed OpenSSL support so that, by default, mIRC no longer checks for
a newer external version of the OpenSSL library. This should resolve
the R6034 Windows error reported by some users.
3.Changed /url, /run, and other features to use alternative method to
open links to resolve issues with asynchronous window messages.
4.Fixed STS/SSL server/port parsing bug.
5.Fixed handling of 64bit timestamp value for several features.
6.Changed $crc() to use larger read buffer with files to improve speed.
