[news=http://img251.imageshack.us/img251/5791/mircam4.jpg]mIRC 6.2 has been released! (July 28th 2006)
Of course this new version addresses the buggies and most of the other comments and remarks we received after the previous release. Apart from that Khaled spend lots of time on the UTF-8 support that was added in the previous version. As you might know UTF-8 is a font encoding system that allows you to use fonts with strange, international characters. That of course helps a lot if you want to chat in your own language!
UTF-8 support has been greatly enhanced in this version of mIRC with the addition of font substitution/font linking. This allows mIRC to display all characters needed, regardless of the font you are using, assuming you have the required fonts on your system, somewhere. mIRC will try to match font sizes etc. To speed up the process Khaled has implemented his own caching routines to enable fast font/character referencing.
mIRC's default toolbar is now customizable through a /toolbar command. By popular demand also a treebar has been added. This lists network connections with channels, queries and other open windows, much like the switchbar. It behaves like the switchbar in many ways as well. You can expand and collapse trees, just like you would expect. Just like the toolbar the treebar can be repositioned to the top/bottom/left/right of the main mIRC window!
For experienced users and scripting enthousiasts this new version has heaps of changes and other new thingies to play with. We encourage you to explore the new or improved identifiers, and the new events that have been added. In total over 120 changes have been made to mIRC. You'll have to dig through the help file in mIRC and the whatsnew.txt on 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?
