From Miranda NG
Jump to: navigation, search


Rev: v0.95.10.3

Released: 28 July 2019

Sometimes Facebook temporarily locks an account due to a suspicious activity or labels Miranda NG as some "malware who hacked an account". There is no solution at the moment. We need a developer who understands the MQTT protocol.

Core and libraries

  • both Miranda and Visual C++ runtimes are built with Spectre Variant 1 mitigations.
  • updated libcurl, libmdbx, iibssh2, libtox, and SQLite libraries.
  • cause Import is packed into the core package, PCRE library is also included in the core package.

Thus, all contacts (also using Miranda NG and later) will receive updated user information.
