Important Notice: Because of a security risk with all prior versions of mIRC, everyone is strongly encourged to download the new version 6.01 to ensure a safer chatting experience. Some of the other more notable changes are listed below:
Improved the way /dcc get works, now also allows you to redirect a file to any folder.
Added /notify -l switch to list notify entries.
/channel request now has a time-out again.
Added WMA/OGG support to sounds dialog, /splay and /sound commands,
Added new identifiers:
- $sound(filename|type) : Returns information about the specified file if a filename was specified, or the associated folder for a filename or file type, where type can be wave, midi, mp3, wma, ogg. $insong : Returns information about the mp3, wma, or ogg file that is being played, same properties as $inmp3. Added Trusted Users list to DCC Auto-get options dialog
DCC chats now display the time the connection was initiated in the DCC Chat Session line.
Popup menus now allow menu headers without a sub-menu.
The control dialog lists, ie. ignore, voice, protect, op, are now stored in a control.ini file, separate from mirc.ini.
It is no longer possible to enter editbox commands that begin with an $identifier or %variable. (with this new version //$decode wouldnt work)
mIRC now prevents a chat/query window from being closed if it receives a message just as you click the close button. You need to click the close button twice within a few seconds of the last message to close the window.
Extended /ignore, /protect, etc. handling:
- Changed display format in Control dialog listbox.
- /ignore, /protect, /aop, and /avoice now all by default include a network name, unless you use the -w switch.
- /ignore -l now displays the unignore time.
- /ignore -l, when you're not connected to a server, lists all ignores. When connected, it lists all ignores that apply to that connection.
It's a new mIRC full of many changes -- too many to mention them all here. Give it a try! Be safe!
