mIRC's default toolbar is now customizable through a /toolbar command. You
can add, move and delete buttons, add your own icons, and of course, attach
your own commands to them. 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.
Right-clicking on an item pops up the usual menu for that window.
Right-clicking in an empty area of the treebar pops up a menu with various
The treebar width can be set by dragging the border with the mouse, and
jsut as with virtually all other windows the background and text colors can
be set in the colors dialog. Just like the toolbar the treebar can be
repositioned to the top/bottom/left/right of the main mIRC window!
In the previous version UTF-8 support was added. In this version several
UTF-8 related bugs are fixed, including bugs with text wrapping and
copy/pasting from UTF-8 "display" or "encode" enabled

been added. 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
Of course all buggies and most of the other comments and remarks we
received after the previous release have been addressed.
Various other changes include:
better support of XP and classic themes,
faster re-wrapping of text,
fixes for various $regsubex() and $regsub() parsing bugs, for a flood
protection bug, for some agent speech bug, and for a bug with the find
dialog in desktop windows,
and mIRC now stores servers that were connected to successfully to
prioritize future server connection attempts, ...and a lot more.
