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.

Beta v7.58.1521 Changes:
1.Reverted change to how /timer %vars are parsed, as this caused
backward compatibility issues.

Beta v7.58.1513 Changes:
1.Item 18, https://forums.mirc.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/266478
2.Item 19, changed.
3.Item 6, fixed text in treebar being chopped by a few pixels.
4.Item 20, fixed.
5.Item 21, added.
6.Item 22, https://forums.mirc.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/266576
7.Item 23, changed.
8.Item 24, changed.

This required a change to one of the core variable parsing
routines that affects all commands and identifiers and has the
potential to break all existing scripts. Needs testing to make
sure that %vars are working as before.
10.Item 26, this required changes to core file reading routines that
affect all features.

Beta v7.58.808 Changes:
1.Item 6, made changes to toolbar, switchbar, treebar, and servers and
favorites dialogs to handle different sized icons. If the Options/
Display/Buttons setting is changed, it is now applied to all of the
above features. Currently, the fixed internal icon size is 16x16, so
it is scaled up when the large setting is used, which means it will
be blurry. This change is for testing purposes and may not be in a
final release (until new icons are added in a future version).
2.Item 14, https://forums.mirc.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/266438
Needs testing.
3.Item 15, https://forums.mirc.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/266452
4.Item 16, added.
Needs testing.
5.Item 17, fixed.

Beta v7.58.241 Changes:
1.Item 1, changed.
2.Item 2, https://forums.mirc.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/266360
3.Item 3, added.
4.Item 4, changed. If you have already saved SSL certificates to your
servers.ini file, they will be permitted. However, if it is a server
that mIRC has never seen before, and it has an invalid certificate,
mIRC will not connect to it unless the user manually changes the
default setting in the Options/Connect/SSL dialog.
5.Item 5, https://forums.mirc.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/266384
This affects a number of features. The cause of the issue was a
generic routine that forms nick!user@host addresses, which was only
checking for . periods. It now checks for : colons as well.
6.Item 6, changed. Also required marking buttons as custom or default
and only updating icons that have not been changed with /toolbar.
7.Item 7, updated.
8.Item 8, fixed.
9.Item 9, changed.
10.Item 10, fixed.
11.Item 11, fixed.
12.Item 12, changed.
13.Item 13, changed.

Changes:
1.Changed $disk().unc to use newer API.
2.Fixed channel mode parsing bug.
3.Added /cnick support for auto-color option by allowing * as color
number. Also added $cnick().auto property.
4.Changed SSL default setting to "Skip connections with invalid
certificates". This means that mIRC will, by default, not connect to
SSL servers with invalid SSL certificates.
5.Fixed how nick!user@host addresses are formed in $ulist() and other
features so that IPv6 addresses are handled correctly.
6.Changed toolbar display code to handle icons of different sizes for
default internal icons.
7.Updated CA root certificates cacert.pem file.
8.Fixed treeview display bug when scrolling new item into view.
9.Changed treeview sorting method that affects favorites and servers
dialogs.
10.Fixed favorites dialog join button not initiating a connection if
not currently connected.
11.Fixed $cnick() returning default values for non-existent items.
12.Changed how log filenames are renamed to use group/network names
during a connect/disconnect.
13.Changed quote "" parsing routines to use the same consistent method
for all commands/identifiers.
14.Extended $fline((@name,wildtext,N,T,S) to support S parameter for
search start position and $flinen that returns match position.
15.Fixed custom dialog controls not being updated immediately when /did
is used to change their contents.
16.Added /fseek -p switch that moves the file pointer backwards to the
start of the current line. If the file pointer is already at the
start of a line, it is moved to the start of the previous line.
17.Fixed $fread() not setting file pointer to start of next line if
line is longer than the maximum line length.
18.Fixed /halt not stopping $hfind() search and then allowing script to
continue running.
19.Changed how Port dialog bind adapter setting is saved in mirc.ini so
that both name and address are saved to [ports] section.
20.Fixed $bindip() bug when used with dual-stack network interface.
21.Added $caller tabcomp value for tab completion.
22.Fixed /if & bit comparison not using unsigned 32-bit integers.
23.Changed identd dialog so that userid entry is not changed when "Use
ID from email address" is checked.
24.Changed /if isnum to also support larger value as the first number.
25.Optimized file reading routines to improve processing speed for
contexts that affect /fseek -l, $read(), $lines(), and /loadbuf.
