Right, being a web connected app based on a distributed community of other clients, it's very possible that the encryption isn't possible to implement on their end. IIRC it's only blocking HTTP connections, so the torrent transfers themselves aren't affected (unless it's masking that as HTTP traffic to avoid easy inspection?), but there may be other things that require HTTP. Connections to trackers maybe?

On the other hand, El Capitan came out last September. If this just changed in 2.9.0, the restricted HTTP connections can't have been that big of a problem.
