Just updated from RC1 to RC2 on phpbb-3.1.8. Steps:
ACP disable mchat-rc1
FTP upload new files /ext/dmzx/mchat
ACP enable mchat-rc2 && purge cache
-> not working: when posting message, nothing happens, mchat couldn't auto-refresh; F5 and message i wrote is there; so:
ACP disable mchat-rc2, and then "delete data" on disabled extension, and then enable mchat-rc2
-> working, so manually reconfigured mchat settings, including moderators privileges.
After a few minutes of testing, users are happy with this new version. Thank you again!

So far I couldn't think of a better solution that suits all scenarios.
Oh, I didn't think of smaller screens and no-avatars users.
One of users on my forum suggested, that another icon could be used. There are a few icons on the upper right corner of mChat posts, like e.g. Quote, IP, Like, PrivMsg - something like "@" icon could be put there, so when user clicks it, then another user is mentioned in mChat.
Question: Some users prefer mChat with messages appearing on top, others prefer new messages that shows at bottom. Is there possibility to select this in UCP (so every user can choose what he likes)?
Funny observation: I enabled "show topic posted" in mChat settings. And got into something interesting. You see, my users use "http://forum.mysite.com/
" link, but I use "https://mysite.com/forum
", (notice http->https protocol, and different path), so when I post topic, then on mChat there my link (with https) put. And since there is certificate from other domain, so users gets message about "not secure connection". And that's OK. But when using paths like forum.domain.com and domain.com/forum, with some secure cookies settings, user can open link in new tab and will be not logged in there (different uri).
I wonder, if mChat could use topic/post id and construct link based on url where user viewing mchat is.
