mIRC 7.28 Beta released

mIRC is a full featured Internet Relay Chat client for Windows that can be used to communicate, share, play or work with others on IRC networks around the world, either in multi-user group conferences or in one-to-one private discussions. It has a clean, practical interface that is highly configurable and supports features such as buddy lists, file transfers, multi-server connections, SSL encryption, proxy support, UTF-8 display, customizable sounds, spoken messages, tray notifications, message logging, and more.

So what’s new in this beta build?

– Fixed help file issue that prevented /help command from jumping to the correct location on a help page
– Fixed /run command issue that affected backward compatibility with ambiguous parameter formats used in older scripts
– Fixed auto-hide nicklist not hiding when mouse is moved outside of the channel window in some contexts
– Changed Escape key so that it clears the current editbox if the “Escape key minimizes window” option is not enabled
– Fixed channel nicklist popup menu being wrongly displayed when right-clicking in nicklist area and nicklist is auto-hidden
– Fixed /exit -r bug not restarting mIRC when scripts editor dialog is open with unsaved files
– Updated libraries to zlib 1.2.7
– Fixed tips bug that caused tips to flicker briefly in view when the “Hide tips when locked” option is enabled and a message is received while mIRC is minimized and locked
– Fixed editbox buffer bugs that appeared in different contexts, such as when combinations of Control+Up/Down were pressed or the editbox contained multiple lines entered with the Alt+Enter key
– Changed SSL feature to store SSL certificate hashes cache in the servers.ini file instead of mirc.ini. Also, hashes are now stored for all certificates, good or bad. If a certificate is good but has changed since the last connection, a warning is now disp
– Fixed /hotlink bug that prevented hotlink popup menus from being displayed
– Changed display bitmap cache to check if mIRC has been blocked from capturing screen buffer (which can happen with security software). If it has, mIRC reverts to slower, non-cache display method
– Fixed full screen menu item not being checked when full screen mode is enabled
– Fixed script editor bug that caused a freeze when saving popups to a non-ini file in certain situations
