Dear mIRC User,
mIRC v7.41 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:
Added $calc() // floor divide operator.
Fixed MDI window transparency bug under Windows 8.
Fixed file handling bug that would have caused settings to be reset if there was a drive error.
Fixed connection timeout not being applied while a STARTTLS handshake is in progress.
Reverted Channels List window change so that modes are included in the listing again.
Fixed MDI windows not maximizing fully to the right in some situations.
Fixed Log and Buffer submenus in window system menus not being set correctly.
Fixed confirm exit dialog bug that was not detecting if DCC gets were in progress.
Extended SSL support to allow connecting to SNI servers.
Fixed log reload bug that caused logs not to be reloaded before the start of a new year.
Fixed while loop bugs relating to multiple nested while loop combinations.
Fixed log viewer bug that caused it to freeze during a search.
Other changes and bug fixes.
In total there have been around 40 changes since the last release 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?
