mIRC 7.0 Beta has been released. This version is for testing purposes only. Therefore, expect it to be a little buggy. The aim of the mIRC Unicode Project is to convert mIRC into a Unicode application, as Unicode has became a 'must-have' option for most applications these days. The purpose of the beta version is so that the mIRC developers will (hopefully) get feedback, suggestion and bug reports to resolve any issues on mIRC 7.0 beta, only then will a stable version be released. 

So, if your asking..  What are the new features in this release?.. 
 
There are few notable features to look for, such as:
  • Improved Windows 7 compatibility
  • More reliable INI file handling
  • Faster text display/scrolling 
  • Speech support 
  • Improved interface design for a number of features Menubar ALT key show/hide feature 
  • Support for italic text and other font styles Optimized SSL routines 
  • Status window SSL connection icon 
  • IPv6 support 
  • Improved portable support
  • Persistent channel history
  • Digitally signed executables
  • Many bug fixes
  • And more.
 
If you find bugs or something faulty, you can report it on the mIRC Discussion Forums (read http://www.mirc.com/beta.html).  Download & use at own risk. Install mIRC 7.0 beta in a seperate directory, other then 'C:\mIRC' dir.

Last, but by no means least, IRCResource will like to wish all mIRC developers - congrats and a good job on they`re perseverance and continues developments all these years; improving the functionality and stability of mIRC, ever since it was first developed (1995). 

mIRC 7.0 Beta snapshot!

Supybot is a clearly-written Python IRC framework and bot, intended to be both easily extensible and very flexible. Several modules are included by default. Numerous plugins are already written, including Google, Factoids, RSS, Quotes, and Relay. Plugins and their commands achieve greater utility via command nesting, something that no other IRC bot does. The user database is based on "capabilities" rather than obscure flags or arbitrary numeric "userlevels", giving the bot flexibility and fine-grained control (think ACLs vs. standard *nix permissions). Developing your own additions to the bot is simple with the base classes provided; writing a new command for the bot is as simple as writing a function. Unlike many other IRC frameworks, this simplicity is achieved at no cost to generality, which lets new programmers and old programmers alike feel at home in the framework.

Futures:
  • Offers nested commands
  • Has a powerful and flexible capability system for handling security
  • Includes many plugins
  • Support multiple servers and channels Add a comment
  • psyBNC is an easy-to-use, multi-user, permanent IRC-Bouncer with many features. Some of its features include symmetric ciphering of talk and connections (Blowfish and IDEA), the possibility of linking multiple bouncers to an internal network including a shared partyline, vhost- and relay support to connected bouncers and an extensive online help system. Many other helpful functions are included. It compiles on both Linux and FreeBSD."

    psyBNC became popular due to the nature of the way it worked. Unlike other BNC software available at the time, psyBNC stayed connected to your IRC network, even when your IRC client was not connected to the BNC. To make it simple, when you disconnect from the bouncer, only YOU disconnect from the BOUNCER, the bouncer will still be connected to the irc network...so to others, it will look like you're still online, when really its just your bnc that's online.

    You can also make it change your nickname when you disconnect (from Nick to Nick-off for example).You can set it up to have an away message once you disconnect from the bnc, so people know you're 'away'.A 'leave message' is also optional...this is a message sent to all channels when you disconnect, so you can inform people that you've just gone offline etc.


    Functions:
  • You'll always be connected to irc. Even when you close an irc client, psy will maintain your connection, so when you connect later, you'll instantly be back on the channels you left.
  • Hides your IP even in DCC sessions.
  • Logs private messages and saves them.
  • You can link multiple psy's together. This allows you to share vhosts, and also create a small ircd, plus other cool features.


    What do i need?
  • A Shell account which allows either (BNC/psyBNC/ZNC)*
  • Or optional, rent a psyBNC
  • 1 background processor

    * If running on a free shell account, make sure you read/ask wheather bncs are allowed. Some free shell companys do not provide this service or either do not allow bncs on they`re dedicated servers. So, read the TOS (Terms of Services) first.

  • Spamfilter is a system to fight spam, advertising, worms and other things. It works a bit like the badwords system.


    Example of how a UnrealIRCd "spamfilter.conf" look:

    spamfilter {
    regex "^FREE PORN: http://free:porn@([0-9]{1,3}\.){3}[0-9]{1,3}:8180$";
    target private;
    reason "Infected by aplore worm: see http://www.f-secure.com/v-descs/aplore.shtml";
    action gline;
