The next version of mIRC will be changed so that, by default, it will not check for newer external OpenSSL libraries.

Could you please tell us what exactly does load=0 and load=1 do? I tested this and both values seem to load the external OpenSSL libraries, but I'm unsure which one to use, 0 or 1, to be able to keep using external OpenSSL libraries.
