Vista and 1.7
February 24th, 2008
Several people has made me aware that AdiIRC does not play nice with Vista and user account protection, meaning that they can neither update through autoupdate, nor install media player plugins.
I am working hard on getting a 1.7.1 ready which is gonna take care of this and ask for administrator access when needed.
If you have 1.6 on Vista and you cannot update, please try right clicking on AdiIRC.exe and select "Run as administrator" and it will be allowed to update, or you can download the 1.7 Installer and install over 1.6. (If you install 1.7 now, you have to do this trick to install 1.7.1 later, so if you don't urgently need the update, just wait until 1.7.1)
This trick can be used when installing plugins also.
I apologize for any inconveniences.

It's here finally :-)
Translations and themes didn't make it, they will come either as an 1.7.X upgrade or in 1.8.
Because it seems I am a little slow to finish stuff and release ;), I will backport bugfixes into 1.7.X releases from now on until 1.8.
Some of the new features:
Sidebar with userlist (View -> Sidebar)
MediaMonkey, foobar2000, MusikCube, QCDPlayer and XMPlay now playing support.
Highlight window to keep track of highligts (View -> Highlights)
You can reorder channels in the dockbar now
Server based encoding (UTF-8 etc, still experimental)
Automated crash reports
Better windows 95/98 support
The usual round of bugfixes
And lots more, check the changelog.

I have had some problems with my eyes this past month, but I am gonna get glasses in early january, and then I will finish up 1.7 and release, sorry :)
