Software Update: Miranda IM 0.8.17

A new edition of the open source instant messaging program Miranda IM was released on Wednesday with version number 0.8.17. Miranda IM is only developed for Windows and offers standard support for ICQ, irc, MSN, AIM, Jabber and Yahoo. The download is not even 1.7MB in size, which means you get a sober and light program. However, both the functionality and appearance of the program can be changed with more than 350 different add-ons and plug-ins can be completely customized to your liking. Miranda IM is thus one of the most customizable IM clients for Windows. Since version 0.8.15, the following changes have been made to the program:
