  • Gadu-Gadu protocol included.
  • Rewritten IRC protocol, adding Unicode support and plenty more
  • Rewritten avatar system

Upgrade Notes
Due to major database changes, users upgrading from Miranda IM v0.6.8 or earlier MUST run the Database Tool (dbtool.exe) and check the option “Convert old Unicode messages to UTF8?. Also, upgrade users should NOT overwrite their mirandaboot.ini or Miranda may not find your existing profile. Due to changes inthis release, you should also update your existing messaging module (Scriver, Tabsrmm) and contact list plugins from the Miranda IM Addons site so that they will be compatible with v0.7.
