[General] mIRC 6.17 released.

Post by Keops »

Hi all. I just downloaded the new mirc version which was released yesterday, 17 february. You can get it from http://www.mirc.com . New changes are displayed in this file: http://www.mirc.co.uk/whatsnew.txt . What do you think? Is it much greater than the previous edition? :)

- Edited. sry :)

It's not a new IRC client, just a new version of mIRC. And.. yesterday (GMT) was the 17th of February, far away from December. :roll:

Finally, a mIRC version includes an useful thing: option to enable/disable $decode/$com/$dll and /run commands. Having these disabled by default, some infections with mIRC viruses are avoided. :D

P.S. Peace and Protection (and some other scripts) don't work good enough with this new release. :(

Tools > Options > Connect > Local Info, uncheck "On connect, always get: Local Host" and leave only "IP Address" checked.
The first step in improving something is acknowledging its problems. This is my contribution to a better CService: http://www.cservice-sucks.net/

Oh, that? I only noticed it now. So why does it bother you?

why does it show in this version and not in the previous versions too? and why can't it be turned off? is it a bug?

I hate to say it, but this question is really better asked of http://www.mirc.com or http://www.mirc.co.uk

Asking the creators and their support system is bound to get better answers. :/

xplora is right, we should discuss mIRC-related issues here:

No, Adrian, this is an Undernet Forum. General / IRC Help section.
