If you have a weak stomach for bugs, don't use the current beta's, i am trying to fix issues which I have been suppressing in the past, and so there are some debug stuff going on, and it will probably crash a lot.
For those that do use it, please keep submitting those automated bug reports, it will help me nail them.
I will try to make a new beta with fixes each day until most have been found.
Might have broken the update system in the battle also, please manually get updates if you get an permission denied error.
Thanks, also happy new year :D
1.8 and folder permissions
December 6th, 2008
If your settings or servers is missing in 1.8 using Vista or non admin accounts in XP, dont worry, AdiIRC is just using another folder to store and read the settings.
In Vista they are saved in c:\Users\YourWindowsUsername\AppData\Local\AdiIRC , so what you can do is close AdiIRC, and copy all files except AdiIRC.exe from c:\Program Files (x86)\AdiIRC into that folder.
In XP they are in c:\Document And Settings\YourWindowsUsername\Locale Settings\AdiIRC .
Sorry about that, should have been taken care of in 1.7

Yeah, finally 1.8 is out!
This release has some new features, here is the most important:
Color themes support.
Plugin support through an API.
Server SSL support.
64 Bit version.
ZNC BNC backlog support.
See the release notes for more.
Thanks to everybody who donated, and beta tested!! Really appreciate it.
Also the site got a lift, might take some days before everything is settled :-)

The latest beta now have functional color theme support (File -> Themes), try it out and please report any issues.
Once the themes are stable, 1.8 only needs some minor tweaks and it will be out :D
The entire program is translatable to any language in 1.8, there were some people interested in translating, but it seems most of them are too busy, so if you are up for the task and want to have your local language included in 1.8, please contact me.
(Ps. I could use a button icon for plugins and themes, for the toolbar, anybody interested?)
