mIRC 6.34 has been released

4 days ago, Khaled Mardam-Bey released a new version of the popular Windows IRC-client mIRC

The website states: This version of mIRC is a small though important update to the previous version and has been released primarily to resolve an important issue with ‘if’ statements being processed incorrectly in the scripting language.

It continues: Although this is a minor update, it includes important changes and is a highly recommended download.

The full list of changes is as follows:

1.Fixed if/while bracket priority bug which affected the parsing of if/while statements.

2.Fixed text display bug where the last character in a line was being chopped off.

3.Changed the fast update display method.

4.Fixed tips display bug.

5.Fixed copy messages to query bug.

6.Fixed /drawrot rounding error bug.

7.Fixed treebar/switchbar server sorting display bug.

The following link is supposed to have even more detailed informations of what has been updated.

Location of the download is here.

Thanks to Chain for the tip!

    Fast update after the previous one… I wonder how serious that issue was, must’ve been quite severe…

    Indeed, thats what i was suspecting too – especially since mIRC has been neglected for a quite long time when 6.06 (?) was released…

    I’m not sure it’s exactly been neglected, so much as a different (probably worse) development methodology is being used… Think of it (for example) as ubuntu vs windows.

    Windows sees one “major” upgrade in three years, ubuntu is on a fixed 6 month cycle.

    Okay, perhaps not the best of examples, but basically, rather than constant upgrades with minor fixes, work is being done in chunks and pushed out (UTF support was one example that comes to mind :) )
