1. Removing limitations in a free version

We have removed the limitation of a 1-year free use and allowed to use encryption in MyChat Free Edition (MyChat Server is limited by 20 concurrent connections).

2. Troubleshooting

Moreover, we have fixed a lot of errors and flaws reported by our users during the last months. Also, we have managed to solve some performance and compatibility issues in various Linux systems
