Miranda IM v0.7.0 Preview Release #9 Now Available

September 13, 2007 by Miranda IM Team

Miranda IM v0.7.0 Preview Release #9 is now available. This preview release is meant for TESTING PURPOSES ONLY. Due to major changes in the database structure, it is HIGHLY recommended that you backup your database before installing. The preview release cycle is meant to address any outstanding issues before any final release to the public. Any feedback you can provide is greatly appreciated.

This release implements an entirely rewritten backend to improve internationalization support. It is therefore highly recommended to run DBTool and use the new “Convert old Unicode messages to UTF8? feature. Also note that some plugins are no longer compatible with this release and onwards and will not be loaded by the core. Please contact the author of these plugins requesting they be updated.

Note: Do not overwrite your mirandaboot.ini file when upgrading over an existing installation.

Important: Users of clist_modern, clist_mw, clist_nicer, scriver or tabsrmm should also download the appropriate contrib file and update their plugins as well.

Changes Since Preview Release #8:

  • Fix for hidden containers part II in Scriver.
  • MSN translation fixes
  • Jabber could hang forever in connecting state
  • Memory leak in db3x and mmap
  • Genmenu critical section fixes
