Version: 0.95.8

Rev: v0.95.8

Released: 4 May 2018

Database migration: the current dbx_mmap database driver will be finally postponed and replaced with the brand new dbx_mdbx driver.

You will get a message on startup This database is in old format that isn't supported anymore. Press Yes to convert it to the new format or No to return back. The conversion should be transparent, also the old database will be backed up. Though it seems reasonable that you make your own backup of Miranda profile before the upgrade.

You need to have Dbx_mdbx driver and Import installed, if not, an error message will point you to the given links.

Dummy protocol with custom Unique ID setting option should be imported manually after migration.
