Dear mIRC User,
mIRC version 6.15 has been released today.
With this release we hope to address the most important comments, requests and remarks we received after the release of version 6.14. The new version fixes quite a few small bugs found in the previous versions. We tried to focus on fixing things, making the mIRC 6 series more an more sturdy, and only few new features and functions have been added. How to upgrade?
As you know mIRC is distributed in a self-extracting cabinet (mirc615.exe) that helps you to install mIRC on your PC. Simply download the cabinet and run the installer. Follow the instructions the installer program gives to you. When upgrading all your old settings and scripts will stay as they were, if you want that. Read the questions the installer program asks with care and nothing can go wrong. You will be chatting with the new mIRC in no time. If you get stuck or if you want to find out more about a certain feature, just click on a Help button or browse the Help file and you should find lots of hints to help you out. We also give some information on changed, improved and fixed features and functions below.Where to download?
For the latest download addresses look on the download page on the mIRC websites. On the mIRC websites also the new mIRC FAQ version 57 (mfaq57hp.zip) is available. The FAQ answers a lot of questions regarding mIRC, IRC, DCC and the like. It also includes a tutorial on Aliases, Popups and on 'programming' the Tools/Remote section.Registering mIRC
