* Changes in ERC 5.1.2
** Go back to using ssl.el so that SSL connections work as expected.
Connecting with `open-tls-stream' only seems to work (if at all?) when
using the tls.el located in lisp/net/ in Emacs22.
** Fix compiler errors in erc-autojoin.el and erc-dcc.el.
** Move to end of prompt when ERC reconnects to a server.
** Changes and additions to modules
*** Spell-checking (erc-spelling.el)
**** Don't spell-check nicks or words that are prefixed with '/'.
**** Remove flyspell properties from words we shouldn't spell-check.
**** Fix an issue that caused the ispell process to reload every time
we switch to an ERC buffer.
*** Timestamps (erc-stamp.el)
**** Fix an inconsistency in calculating width of right timestamps.
**** Rename option `erc-timestamp-right-align-by-pixel' to
`erc-timestamp-use-align-to'. This controls whether to use the more
fail-proof method of aligning right timestamps, as mentioned below.
**** Fix a right timestamp spacing problem that used to occur when
erc-stamp.el was byte-compiled. Now that this is fixed, it is safe to
use the method that aligns right timestamps perfectly in Emacs22 with
X. If the current version of Emacs doesn't support this method, use
the simpler method, which is prone to alignment issues for math
symbols and other variable-width text.
A side effect of using this new method is that there will only be one
space before a right timestamp in any saved logs. If this is
unacceptable, set `erc-timestamp-use-align-to' to nil.
