Notable changes in DC++ 0.851:

Compared to DC++ 0.843, DC++ 0.851 updates the various libraries used by the program, leading to more stability and security. DC++ 0.851 has a specific focus on security; it especially thwarts certain methods that were using the DC network to launch "ddos" attacks. Therefore, it is expected most hubs will require users use DC++ 0.851 for the general wealth of the network. And as usual, there are many tweaks here and there to make your DC++ experience more enjoyable! :)
