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.
