Dear mIRC User,
mIRC v7.25 has been released today.
This is a small update that addresses a number of issues reported by users since the last release. It includes improvements, changes and fixes to a number of features, including:
Portable support has been improved for when mIRC is used on more than one computer through file hosting services like dropbox.
A Treebar option has been added that allows you to choose a different font using the right-click popup menu.
The editbox now beeps at most ten times when the maximum message length is reached and respects the "enable sounds" option in the sounds dialog.
The log view window now allows you to set the default ontop state through the system menu as well as save the window position.
The SSL warning dialog has been improved and now includes SHA1 fingerprint and Bubble-babble text.
Incremental search has been added to listboxes that matches against start of text in listbox lines.
The Control+Break key issue that caused it to stick in some situations should now be resolved.
A display scrolling bug that occurred in windows that contained a large numbers of lines has been fixed.
A 10053 connection issue has been fixed that occurred when connecting to a server that closed the connection immediately.
Changed /timer handling so that it is now more precise/reliable.
Other changes and bug fixes.
In total there have been over 60 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.How to upgrade?
