Download XChat Portable 2.8.6 Pre-Release 1 [7.6MB download / 37MB installed] (I do recommended you delete your previous installer, preserving the Data directory if you wish)
Pre-Release 1 (2008-10-01):
- Initial release of 2.8.6
- I just realized the language files are 17+ megs, they will be optional for sure next release.
- Few more tweaks are needed with some file handling in the launcher
- Splash screen must be rebranded "XChat" as that is the official name and the only place that says X-Chat anymore is the local installer.
- Change YChat to XChat (I did that, but I guess I threw in the wrong binaries).
- Add support for Perl, Python, and the like.
