"With this release we of course address most of the comments and remarks we
received after the release of the previous mIRC version. Khaled added support
for displaying UTF-8 text as unicode to mIRC. mIRC can also encode outgoing text
in UTF-8, based on the script/codepage you selected. Among the various other
changes are a better check for timed out connections, support for passive dcc
send/chat connections, resizable file dialogs, lots of SSL related improvements
and various additions of "dangerous" commands to the Lock options dialog.
Over 160 changes have been made to mIRC. You'll have to dig through the help
file in mIRC and the
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?"
