July 18, 2008 by Miranda IM Team

Miranda IM v0.7.8 Preview Release #1 is now available. This preview release is meant for TESTING PURPOSES ONLY. It is 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.

Do not overwrite your mirandaboot.ini file when upgrading over an existing installation. If you are unsure of how to do this, please use the installer.


  • SSL library included to provide ssl support
  • ICQ: Improved client detection
  • Jabber: Enable StartTLS by default


  • Safer port opening for incoming connections
  • Language pack translations did not always translate correctly
  • ICQ: Skinned protocol icon was sometimes incorrect
  • MSN: Improved BBCode processing

Note #1: This build includes a new SSL library. It is important that we test this on as many systems and setups as possible. Your feedback on this is greatly appreciated.

Note #2: If you are using Jabber and the jabber.org server, please try testing with TLS enabled in the Jabber options. This server will be requiring this option in several more months so it’s important that we test it out using the new SSL library.

  5. After 0.6.8. all newer version work with SRAMM plugin incorectly and distort russian text.
    I try sramm and srammw – similar situation.
    And I be obliged to rollback to 0.6.8.
    All it because I need single message window, like old ICQ and SRAMM

  7. Dear developers! I do like miranda, but every pack always include many useless protocols. And every change (grrrrrr) of oscar for example can only be fixed by searchin’ for the best version, and replacing it manually

    imho it would be easier to make download pack including the core only with a button like “press to install/update needed protocol/language pack form the net/official site”
