I only ever used mContacts itself.
That's why I'm asking.

The upcoming week I should be able to allocate some time to fix this Miranda thing. It seems my older Miranda executable directory backups have no importTXT plugin. Can you suggest some place where I might be able to get an old enough Miranda and the importTXT plugin?

Oh.. I don't actually know if there is a miranda "archive" but I don't think there is... I can have a look if I have it somewhere.

Sounds good. Especially seeing as I was holding off on updating to the last few mdbx commits - I did just now and my profile got rekt.

I wonder how many times this has to happen before Ghazan will agree to stop pushing mdbx commits before letting me test those. ( https://forum.miranda-ng.org/index.php?topic=5542.0 like here)

This is how my last 2 crashes happened, too.
Maybe it is possible to code an extra security layer until the mdbx driver has proven to be reliable beyond doubt - like bulletproof live .dat backups, or DB verification/tuning/cleanup utilities...?

Or creating a new update channel such as "Alpha - use at your risk only on backed up profiles"?

Any specfic advice for a version with a working importTXT  plugin that will open recent (mdbx) profiles?

It should be anything before this commit:

https://github.com/miranda-ng/miranda-ng/commit/7caad1d40b0a161b62a59ed252ca6a40d0a73633

Because after this commit, ImportTXT got killed.

Well only now I found some time to try reimporting my old conversations from simple (not JSON) text files.
I'm going to download Miranda v0.95.8, last modified 2018.08.15, from here: https://www.miranda-ng.org/distr/deprecated/0.95.8 , which I see contains importtxt.dll in the plugins dir. So it should be good.

By the way, I found another nasty db bug today (but I had everything backed up), I will post about it in the bug report subforum.
