Enjoy online group chats with this powerful IRC client

Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is one of the oldest chat platforms on the Internet, and mIRC is one of the best known IRC chat clients.

The technology is mostly about holding real-time group chats in chat rooms, called channels (although you can have private chats with individual IRC users, too). It's far more complex than just chatting in the average web chatroom, but then you can also do more, and mIRC generally does a good job of walking you through the initial IRC basics.

Once you're chatting you'll discover that the program has all the extras that you'd expect in any modern messaging client: buddy lists, file transfers, message logging, SSL encryption, IPv6 support, and more.

If you want to go further, then the program can be automated through its own scripting language. This is no toy - it supports DLLs, can call COM objects, create graphical windows, process binary files, create sockets for network communications, and more - and can do anything from manage your IRC channels to playing complex multi-user online games.

And while the program isn't free, the licensing is just about as generous as you'll get. A single-user licence of $20 will allow you to install mIRC on up to 3 computers, and it's a lifetime deal - you'll never have to pay again for any future version.

Version 7.38:
 

  • Added STARTTLS support using the CAP tls protocol.
  • Fixed switchbar/treebar display bug that caused windows to be displayed in the wrong order.
  • Added Shift-F3 key support in Scripts Editor to search backwards through text.
  • Fixed timezone/daylight savings bug that was affecting timestamping and time/date identifiers.
  • Changed $sound() to use the TagLib library for improved reading of MP3 and other media file formats.
  • Updated the default DCC accept and ignore file types lists.
  • Changed $input() to allow entering of longer text and limiting text entry to maximum length.
  • Fixed DCC Get window not being updated when a resume begins.
  • Fixed DCC Chat speech bug that caused text in a DCC Chat window not to be spoken.
  • Added $envvar(N/name) identifier with .name and .value properties to return environment variables.
  • Changed /server to search servers list using combination of server address, group, and description.
  • Updated libraries to PCRE v8.36 and OpenSSL 1.0.1j.
  • Other changes and bug fixes.
Verdict:

IRC has more of a learning curve than most chat technologies, but mIRC has more tools to help you along the way than most of the competition

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
