From Miranda NG
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Version: 0.96.4

Rev: v0.96.4

Released: 15 November 2023

After the update, the first launch may take some time. In some it can be quite long (depending on the amount of history in the database), up to ten minutes on very large databases. Do not interrupt the process, wait for Miranda to start.
If the message log (the area in the message window that contains conversation history) looks unusual, make sure that the correct log viewer is selected in Options → Message sessions → Log viewer.
If you used Rate plugin and after the update, the rating is not displayed in the contact list, turn on the "Contact rate" icon in Options → Contact list → Extra icons.
Steam and Twitter protocols do not work. We are aware of this problem, but we cannot solve it yet.
