Dear mIRC User,

mIRC v7.44 has been released today.

This is a small update that addresses a number of issues reported by users since the last release. It includes improvements, changes and fixes to a number of features, including:

Updated to OpenSSL 1.0.2g, PCRE 8.38, and TagLib 1.11 libraries.
Extended $regex() to allow unlimited backreferences.
Updated all file dialogs, including the send file dialog, to use modern file dialogs.
Updated to NSIS 2.50 installer and related plugins.
Fixed mode +q event being processed as on OWNER/DEOWNER event on networks that use +q as a channel mode.
Fixed if/while bracket parsing bug that caused mIRC to freeze with a certain combination of separators and brackets.
Added check for servers that include MONITOR in numeric 005 but do not actually support it. mIRC reverts back to ISON in this case.
Added "Certficate" menu item to status window system menu that allows viewing of the SSL certificate for an SSL connection.
Added $regmlex(name,M,N) that returns array of matches in the case of a /g global match.
Extended $url to work with browsers that do not support DDE, like Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome.
Updated $os and manifest files for Windows 10 compatibility.
Added support for extended numeric 338 reply with IPv6 address.
Added /sockopen -46 switches to specify the IPv4/IPv6 context when resolving named addresses.
Changed /server to base its IPv4/IPv6 context on the IP address if one is used.
Fixed $msgtags not being reset immediately after an event.
Fixed $eval() bug that caused over-evaluation in some cases.
Fixed log view dialog file size bug with large log files.
Extended $com() to allow passing parameters in from and results out to binary variables.
Updated code signing certificate to SHA-256. Binaries are now dual code-signed with SHA-1 and SHA-256.
Other changes and bug fixes.

In total there have been around 50 changes since the last release and although most of them are only small fixes and tweaks, we hope that they result in a more useful and stable mIRC for you.

How to upgrade?
mIRC is distributed in an installer that installs mIRC on your computer for you. Simply download and run the installer from the download page on the mIRC website. Follow the instructions the installer gives to you. When upgrading all your old settings and scripts will stay as they were, if you want that. Read the questions the installer asks with care and nothing can go wrong. You will be chatting with the new mIRC in no time. If you get stuck or if you want to find out more about a certain feature, just click on a Help button or browse the Help file and you should find lots of hints to help you out.
