									17/10/2008 - mIRC v6.35 Changes: 1.Fixed nickname bug where very long nicknames (hundreds of characters in length) sent by the server would cause mIRC to crash. 2.Updated to PCRE v7.8 and OpenSSL 0.9.8i libraries. 3.Added Script Editor option to disable line numbers. 4.Fixed /toolbar bug where setting a bitmap for a default button was not working correctly. 5.Added custom dialog support for "rich" editbox property that allows an arbitrary "limit" on the amount of text. 6.Fixed window listbox display bug when moving the horizontal scrollbar all the way to the right. 08/08/2008 - mIRC v6.34 Changes: 1.Fixed if/while bracket priority bug which affected the parsing of if/while statements. 2.Fixed text display bug where the last character in a line was being chopped off. 3.Changed the fast update display method. 4.Fixed tips display bug. 5.Fixed copy messages to query bug. 6.Fixed /drawrot rounding error bug. 7.Fixed treebar/switchbar server sorting display bug. 18/07/2008 - mIRC v6.33 Changes: 1.Fixed $istok() not returning error if too many parameters supplied. 2.Fixed /scon returning wrong error message. 3.Fixed window positions not being saved correctly for certain types of windows. 4.Fixed tab completion issue with long text/identifier values. 5.Fixed Channel Central dialog excepts/invites bug, now looks for +eI modes in the CHANMODES token as well as EXCEPTS and INVEX tokens. 6.Fixed reload logs feature displaying session information twice on reloading a log file. 7.Fixed $calc() returning +/-0 in some situations. 8.Improved handling of hotlinks enclosed in brackets. 9.Fixed server ports bug when using toolbar connect button. 10.Fixed color display bug in tips title/message text. 11.Fixed text display bug due to incorrect text width measurement with some fonts/characters, now using new method to measure text width. 12.Changed $window().sbstate/tbstate to return button status even if the corresponding bar is hidden. 13.Fixed $hfind/$regml regex bug. 14.Fixed channels list window focus bug when getting list. 15.Fixed script editor editbox warning to take account of long wrapped lines. 16.Fixed window focusing bug in certain situations. 17.Fixed /toolbar load/save bug with @window parameters. 18.Fixed /did -d CRLF bug.

19.Fixed picture @window popup menu bug under Vista. 20.Added support for the transfer of files larger than four gigabytes. This required the following extension to the DCC transfer protocol: If mIRC sees that it is sending or receiving a file with a size larger than a 32bit value, it sends and expects to receive 64bit acks. In all other respects, the protocol is unchanged. Note that all previous versions of mIRC are unable to either send or receive such large files. 21.Changed file transfer CPS calculation method, now reflects the real average CPS over the last few seconds. 22.Improved the way the "Total Max Cps" feature throttles transfer speeds. 23.Increased the maximum allowed DCC Send packet size. This may or may not improve speed depending on your connection type. 24.Fixed DCC Send/Get bug where files of zero bytes in size could not be transfered. 25.Changed DCC Send so that it now always sends packets ahead of acks. This means that even if it receives no acks at all, mIRC will still transfer the file. If "Fast Send" is enabled, mIRC will attempt to send packets as fast as it can. 26.Fixed regex identifiers hiding output of called identifiers by default - they now require . prefix in calling alias. 27.Fixed /server switches not being remembered on an automatic retry connection attempt after a disconnection. 28.Fixed server connection not remembering SSL status if you disconnect and then reconnect to a server. 29.Fixed switchbar display button-sorting display bug. 30.Added $window().tbtext for window treebar text. 31.Added /editbox -vqN switches, where -v prevents the editbox contents from being changed and -qN enables/disables/toggles second editbox. 32.Added /var -g switch, sets global variable values. 33.Added $timer().pause property. 34.Added $input() 'm' switch which allows you to include multiple "text" parameters and to display them in a combobox. The first text item is the default item, the rest are the items in the list. 35.Fixed /log on command bug not using logs folder. 36.Optimized text mark/copy routine. 37.Added Track Urls warning when feature is enabled via system menu. 38.Changed unicode display method slightly - mIRC now preloads the cache with the default system unicode font and various other unicode fonts if they are found on your system. 39.Fixed if/while bracket parser bug. 40.Added $chan/query/send/get/chat .idle properties. 41.Added editbox "automatic" lines feature to display/options dialog that dynamically changes the size of the primary editbox to show all of your typed text, up to half the size of the window. 42.Extended /window -eN switch where 0 = single, 1 = multi, 2 = auto, and 3 = default. 43.Changed Control+Home/End key behaviour so that they move the cursor if you are editing text in a multi-line editbox, otherwise they scroll the display buffer. 44.Updated to OpenSSL 0.9.8h library. 45.Changed Enter key behaviour in multi/auto editbox so that it sends a line when pressed in the middle of a line. To insert a line you

can use the Alt+Enter key combination. 46.Changed Status Window editbox to reflect single/multi/auto editbox settings. 47.Fixed UTF-8 text-wrapping display bug. 48.Fixed SSL certificate caching bug when maximum cache size exceeded. 21/05/2008 - mIRC v6.32 Changes: 1.Fixed /did -o CRLF bug. 2.Fixed /log -f not being able to handle quotes. 3.Fixed /toolbar default icons bug with toolbar background pictures. 4.Fixed notify icon white pixels bug with a black background in the treebar. 5.Fixed script editor buttons not displaying icons when running under Windows Vista Classic Theme. 6.Fixed listbox height in SSL dialog. 7.Fixed script initialization warning bug. 8.Changed /drawpic bitmap allocation method to speed up @window displays. 9.Fixed $tip help file bug. 10.Fixed /toolbar not being compatible with toolbar buttons bitmap. 11.Updated to PNG 1.2.29, PCRE v7.7, and OpenSSL 0.9.8g libraries. 12.Standardized and extended string lengths throughout mIRC to allow the use of longer variables, channel and nick names, and other items. 13.Optimized $strip() control codes routine, used through -out mIRC. 14.Added "Check for Updates" item to Help menu. mIRC also checks for updates once a day on startup. This can be turned off in the updates dialog. 15.mIRC now displays the wait cursor when dialogs are opened and closed as a busy indicator, mainly for when mIRC is run from a USB drive. 16.Fixed /drawrot -b background color bug. 17.Fixed text display moving backwards bug with certain fonts. 18.Fixed mouse wheel handling to properly process slow/fast scrolling with high resolution mice. 19.Fixed status window log menu bug on a clean install. 20.Fixed blank lines in window listboxes not being displayed correctly. 21.Added /set -k switch, keeps current -uN setting for a variable.

Also irc:// links are now only added to the Current User registry, not the local machine registry and this is only done when mIRC is run, not by the installer. The -service command line switch has been removed from the help file though it is still supported under 95/98/ME. 31.mIRC no longer uses an internal uninstaller, instead the install program now places an uninstall.exe in the mIRC folder. 32.Fixed dialog table definition not being able to call local aliases if dialog was opened from the command line. 33.Extended custom dialog "tab id" parameter to allow id to be an alias/identifier. 34.Fixed comments not being parsed correctly in the users list. 35.Fixed mouse cursor display bug during mark/copy. 36.Added internal U3 support to mIRC. mIRC looks for these command line parameters -appStart, -appStop, and -hostCleanUp, and looks for U3_HOST_EXEC_PATH and U3_APP_DATA_PATH environment variables. 37.Fixed ini storage bug when using -portable switch. 38.Changed -portable command line switch behaviour. Now makes mIRC both 1) avoid use of the registry and 2) use th e executable folder as the mirc.ini folder. 39.Fixed /if parser not reporting invalid operator for => and =<, and added not support for !> !<= etc. 40.Fixed window display bug when rejoining an already joined channel. 41.Fixed /writeini and /remini not reporting an error if they were unable to write to the file. 42.Added support for positioning Treebar at top/bottom of mIRC window. 43.Added support for network specific notify nicks.

/omsg, and /onotice. 50.Fixed notify list routine that was not correctly optimized, may have led to high cpu usage/interface lag for some users. 51.Fixed various dialogs opening centered in main window when opened with keyboard shortcuts, eg. Alt+O, Alt+B, etc. 52.Added support for notify list display in treebar, option enabled via treebar popup menu. 53.Added treebar menu option to use System menus or Window menus for right-clicked treebar items. System menus are the default. Toggle by holding shift key while right-clicking. 54.Added $menutype and $menucontext to supplement $menu. They are available during popup menu creation and indicate the menu type and context of the menu being created. 55.Changed left-click method on treebar items, it takes one click to open and close windows now. 56.Fixed issues with /mkdir and $isdir(). $isdir() will now only accept folder names, whereas previously it was accepting filenames as well. 57.Changed status window icon so that you can now tell when it is connected, connecting, logging on, or disconnecting. 58.Alt+LeftClick no longer changes the status window icon, instead it now adds a down arrow to the button. When clicked it displays a popup menu of hidden windows. 59.The status window title in switchbar/treebar now always shows the network/server name, even when not connected. 60.Added Buffer menu to custom @window system menu. 61.Changed the way files are renamed/copied/deleted to resolve file issues experienced by some users. 62.Fixed favorites menu recent channels history bug. 63.Changed the way $active works, was not consistent before. 64.Changed on ACTIVE so that it always triggers when a window gets the focus, was not triggering in all situations before. 65.Fixed /unload not halting script on error. 66.Added treebar support for spacebar to pop up menu for selected item. 67.Fixed $wrap() bug not handling bold control codes across multiple lines correctly. 68.If an incoming notice is displayed in more than one window eg. in common channels or the active window, windows are now highlighted only if necessary. 69.Added /cnick -f switch that forces the addition of a new entry to the list instead of updating an existing nick. 70.Fixed relative path bug when handling short paths. 71.Improved error handling in /load command. 72.Added Notify and Urls List items to windows order dialog, affects position of these items in treebar. 73.Added support for on ^TABCOMP, triggers before a $id or %var is evaluated. 74.Changed $fserv() to $fserve(), old identifier still supported but no longer documented. 75.Fixed MDI background display flickering bug. 76.The /setlayer command can now set the transparency of the main mIRC window. 77.When in the Script Editor mIRC no longer considers itself the

active application, this allows flash/beep/etc. events to trigger. 78.All buttons that select/display files/folders now display the whole file/path with ellipsis if necessary. 79.Fixed nick color list freeze issue, instead of updating all nicks immediately when colors change, now only updates them when they are visible. 80.Moved highlight dialog to address book and added regex support. 81.Fixed options dialog memory leak. 82.Fixed "Move status window..." bug in Group dialog. 83.Fixed wildcard matching bug. 84.Added support for tips, text balloons that pop up near the Windows tray to notify you of various events such as incoming messages or users in your notify list coming on or leaving IRC. Tips only appear when mIRC is not the active application and are hidden the moment mIRC becomes active. Tips can be configured in the Options/Windows/Options dialog. The Highlight dialog in the Address Book also supports tips for matched items. Tips can also be scripted using the $tip() identifier: $tip(name,title,text,delay,iconfn,iconpos,alias,wid) Returns Nth position of tip if successful, zero if not. name - name of the tip title - title text - text delay - from 3 to 60 seconds iconfn - icon filename iconpos - icon position in filename alias - alias to perform when tip is double-clicked wid - id of window to which tip belongs name, title, text are required. delay, iconfn, iconpos, alias, and wid can be $null. $tip(name/N) can be used to list existing tips. Notes: Right-click in a tip pauses the time-out for all tips. Shift+Left-click in a tip closes that tip. Double-click in a tip triggers the alias if one is defined, or opens the associated window if not. The tip automatically fits the text into it and will at most widen to quarter of your screen width. New tips are queued until older tips time-out. Tips time-out

at a slower rate if they are not at the head of the queue. If no wid is specified, the tip belongs to the status window of the currently active connection. A tip is closed if the window it belongs to is made active or is closed, or if mIRC is made active and the tip belongs to an MDI window. 85.Fixed /showmirc -nt bug minimizing mIRC but not activating the next application window. 86.Fixed $mp3() not handling unicode tags correctly. 87.Added $fullscreen identifier, returns 1 if an application is running in full screen mode, 0 if not. This applies to game and non-game applications. 88.Fixed agent speaking bug. 89.Extended /echo -iN to allow maximum N of 256. 90.By popular request, changed logging method back to old method, no longer uses name.N.log filename format. 91.For new installs the "download" folder is now named "downloads" and a "scripts" folder is created by default. 92.Added $ebeeps identifier, returns sounds enabled/disabled state. 93.Updated tab display routines to use XP/Vista themes. 94.Fixed menubar spaces bug, all scripts are now aligned on load using same align routine as editor. 95.Removed support for mirc.hlp file on F1 key, only mirc.chm is used now. 96.Fixed editor "monitor file changes" bug with .ini files. 97.When run under Vista mIRC now checks for a corresponding virtual store folder at startup. Vista creates virtual store folders for older non-Vista compatible applications, such as older vers ions of mIRC. If mIRC finds such a folder, it displays a dialog box allowing you to retrieve your old mIRC files and settings. 98.Added $sha1(text|&binvar|filename,[N]) identifier, where N = 0 for plain text (default), 1 for &binvar, 2 for fil ename. 99.Updated to PNG 1.2.18 and PCRE v7.2 libraries and to OpenSSL 0.9.8e support files. 100.The about dialog now displays a second page that loads from the mIRC website. No information is sent to the server. 101.Fixed custom dialog icon definitions not setting %var values correctly on exit. 102.Changed compiler optimization settings resulting in slightly larger executable. 103.Added Mode menu item to the View menu in the menubar that allows you to switch between Normal and Compact modes. Compact mode makes mIRC behave like a messenger with the treebar filling the main window, all windows opening on the desktop, and so on. The full versions.txt file has become too large to include in the distribution, so only the version information for the last version or so is being included from now on. You can still download the full versions.txt file from the mIRC website.
