Dear mIRC User,

mIRC v7.52 has been released today.

This release includes improvements, changes and fixes to a number of features, including:

Added support for IRCv3 STS secure connection feature.
Fixed SSL connect behaviour that prevented a retry connect attempt for non-critical SSL errors.
Updated code signing certificate.
Added support for IRCv3 batch feature.
Fixed online timer bug that caused mIRC to freeze once a minute the more connected status windows were open.
Extended ^K color support for indexes 16 to 98.
Updated libraries to OpenSSL 1.0.2n.
Fixed font dialog not displaying sample text correctly for certain fonts.
Added "Hide away reminders" option that hides repeat away messages for ten minutes.
Fixed /timer -h bug that prevented a subsequent /timer -h request from using the multimedia timer.
Changed script editor file monitor to ignore daylight savings offset and to check file size changes.
Changed CAP cap-notify support for NEW/DEL so that mIRC no longer disconnects/reconnects for most CAP features unless necessary.
Changed mouse wheel scrolling to scroll by page if this option is enabled for your mouse in Windows.
Added $fromeditbox identifier that returns $true/$false if command or identifier called directly from an editbox.
Fixed $msfile() gpf when too many files are selected.
Fixed regular expression bug relating to \K escape sequence.
Added /ignore support for highlight, speech, and tips.

In total, there have been around 70 changes since the last release.
