Miranda IM is a multi protocol instant messenger client for Windows. Miranda IM uses very little memory and is extremely fast. It requires no installation and can be fitted on a single floppy disc. Its powerful plugin system makes Miranda IM very flexible. Only the most basic features are built in, but there are currently more than 350 free plugins available for download that allows users to extend the functionality of Miranda IM.
The major change in this 0.8 series is the new Plugin API. Expect that some of your plugins won't work anymore; most plugin authors already released compatible versions, though.
This is beta software, there might be some serious bugs.
