Khaled: mIRC 7.51 released
Dear mIRC User,

This is a small update that addresses a number of issues reported by users since the last release. It includes improvements, changes and fixes to a number of features, including:

Fixed server passwords not being migrated from older versions of mIRC.
Updated libraries to OpenSSL 1.0.2l, PCRE 8.41, and zlib 1.2.11.
Fixed /server not parsing passwords set in servers list.
Fixed network name in status window titlebar not being synchronized with switchbar/treebar.
Fixed log files bug that caused logs from different networks to be mixed.
Extended /bset to support -1 to append characters.
Extended DCC Trust to allow network specific address.
Extended LOADINFO structure to include DWORD mBeta value.
Fixed mIRC window saved position bug that caused it to reset to the wrong position.
Added /set -i switch that only initializes a variable if it does not already exist.
Fixed script line parser bug that caused a gpf with some combinations of $str/$N-/$len.
Extended $compress()/$decompress() to support raw, zlib, and gzip.
Updated CA root certificates cacert.pem file.
Fixed Clear History not correctly clearing network names in switchbar/treebar.
