mIRC 6.21 has been released!

As always this new version of mIRC addresses many of the issues reported since the last release. A lot of time was spent tweaking features and fixing bugs. We worked on the installer, logfile handling, script error handling, as well as a handful of other things. Only a few new features and functions have been added, making this mainly a bugfix release.

Download: mIRC 6.21


For general users the interface has been improved in small but useful ways: the display speed of text in window and listboxes is faster; a new Minimize/Close All menu item has been added to the Treebar folder menus; the IRC Servers dialog has been updated to use a modern and snazzy treeview; for USB drive users mIRC now supports a -portable command line switch which makes it avoid use of the registry; A "Lock Bars" options as been added to the toolbar/switchbar/treebar menus to prevent accidental changes in their position/size; several new sounds events have been added to the Sounds events dialog; and the Sounds dialog Enable/Disable sounds option now disables all sounds completely, for users who like to run mIRC in complete silence :-) Finally, the logging feature has been improved to cope with multiple server connections.

For experienced users and scripting enthousiasts this new version has heaps of fixes, changes and other little thingies to play with. We encourage you to explore the whatsnew.txt on the Web to learn about the complete list of changes and their impact. Some changes are obvious, some need getting used to - please take your time to play with them and see how they work.

In IRC and in some hideous ftp you can download true zero-days release files but sadly you need to kiss many asses for obtain a account.

Come on guys, it's pointless to argue which is the better irc client. Everyone has their own personal preferences. The topic is the new version of mirc so stick with it.

I don't see why people are complaining, mIRC has got to be hands down the best IRC client you can possibly have. At least, it's bested every single other client I've ever used.
If you can find a client that's as customisable, scriptable and expandable as this, then by all means let me know about it.

Well worth the money they ask.

Xchat www.xchat.org supports 3 script types tcl , perl python , theres a small one time fee for windows and for linux uts free aka open source

Or you can go here http://www.silverex.org/news/ and get X-Chat for Windows free.

The reason the creator charges for X-Chat on Windows is because he says it takes a lot of time and effort to compile it for Windows. The guy who owns the page I just linked to does X-Chat compiles for Windows free of charge.
