Horrible Update

Plugins and Scripts no longer work. Developers changed the path in the Library folder from the regular path in Application Support -> X-Chat. Blank screen at startup. I really hope the developers fix these issues before I am forced to choose a new client.

Constant SSL issues on 1.17.x

Ever since the release of 1.17, there has been persistent SSL crashes and issues. Each new update that claims to solve the issue has either not solved it, or caused another issue to crop up.
