Hello Miranda community. I am sharing for download my portable Miranda NG which I did for myself.
I tried some other distributions found around and about but did not like anything.
I didn't want flaaffy distributions, teenage icons, funny extras, screaming colors, oversized borders, obsolete (or non working) features, unfinished mods etc.
All I needed was simple looking tidy and neatly distribution with good amount of functionalities/plugins suitable for office and legally communications. Powerful with minimal size, without wasted screen space for nothing, serious and clear interface. And run with minimum interventions just download and touch to go.
However I did not find anything even close to my taste.
So I made something powerful and decent, wasted a lot of time to tweak and customize this handy messenger and now would like to share it with other people. I think it will be useful for many people who cant find anything decent in the Internet and don't have time to do it from scratch. Here you are:
It is portable Miranda NG v0.95.5, just unzup and run. To add your accounts go in Main Menu->Accounts... Don't need to set or customize anything. It has an empty MyProfile.dat file containing all settings, so don't delete it because you will delete all your settings. If you want to put your .dat file from your old Miranda then use Main Menu -> Import.. and import it. Do not copy it, because you will lose the settings. Or if you want to copy it, then use DB tool to export the settings and import them into your .dat file.

Classic Skype emoticons included, and many others.
44 Modern contact skins and 24 Clist Nicer skins. How to switch between skins manager see helping screenshot in the file. I prefer the default skin (which is no skin) or eleGant skin
49 Message window skins. I don't use any, don't like skinned windows
46 popup skins and 17 tipper skins.
48 classic notification sound
8 dictionaries for the spell checker
Made a tool to auto select profile if you have more than one profile
