Tixati 2.88 – Neowin

Tixati is a free and easy to use BitTorrent client offering detailed views of all seed, peer and file transfer properties. Also included are powerful bandwidth mapping and throttling capabilities, and a full DHT implementation. Tixati is one of the most advanced and flexible BitTorrent clients available. And unlike many other clients, Tixati contains NO SPYWARE, NO ADVERTISING and NO GIMMICKS.

The portable version of Tixati is intended to work on a USB key or other portable medium. It stores all of its configuration files in the same folder as the executable binaries, and all file paths are stored in a format relative to the program’s executable folder.

It is important not to delete the “tixati_portable_mode.txt” file in the executables folder. It is this file that triggers the execution of Tixati in portable mode. (The executable binaries are actually the same as the standard edition binaries.)

When running the portable edition from a USB flash drive, especially one formatted as FAT16/FAT32, you may experience some lag when initially loading a new transfer. This is because initializing and allocating large files on flash media consumes more time and resources compared to a conventional hard drive.

Tixati has the following features:

  • detailed views of all aspects of the swarm, including peers, coins, files, and trackers
  • support for magnet links, so no need to download .torrent files if a simple magnet link is available
  • super-efficient peer throttling/unblocking algorithms ensure the fastest downloads
  • peer-to-peer connection encryption for added security
  • full DHT (Distributed Hash Table) implementation for trackerless torrenting, including detailed message traffic graphs and customizable event logging
  • advanced bandwidth mapping of overall traffic and traffic per transfer, with separate classification of protocol and file bytes, and with separate outbound traffic classification for commerce and seeding
  • Very flexible bandwidth throttling, including negotiation/seeding proportion adjustment and adjustable priority for individual transfers and peers
  • bitfield graphs that show the completeness of all uploaded files, what other peers have, and the health of the entire swarm
  • customizable event logging for each download and individual event logs for all peers within the swarm
  • expert local file management features that allow you to move files to another partition even while downloading
  • 100% compatible with the BitTorrent protocol
  • Native Windows and Linux-GTK versions available

Tixati 2.88 Changelog:

  • additional transfer checks to detect inconsistent file structure after metadata upload
  • Fixed crash when transfer metadata is reloaded from config file with incorrect file sizes or misaligned room layout
  • new optional forward columns to show known peer and seed counts
  • full rewrite of data shared by the channel user and caching of channel info messages
  • Much lower channel memory usage for large shared data sets
  • smaller channels.dat configuration file, faster loading at program start
  • rewrote all routines for synchronization of channel information and user shared data
  • faster update of Channel Info tab between v2.88 or newer clients
  • much faster and more reliable updating of channel user shared data
  • slightly lower bandwidth usage for Channel connections
  • fixed minor display issues when navigating through incomplete channel user shared data, especially with incomplete images
  • all channels now default to a shared data lifetime of 10 years
  • when changing channels in the list view, now correctly preserves and restores text from the edit box of outgoing chat messages in the bottom tab
  • fixed link parsing in channel output text so that leading or ending special characters are not included
  • fixed minor sorting issues in channel forum tab
  • major rewrite of some Windows and GTK control classes to fix handle destruction sequencing issues in complex layouts
  • Fixed a crash when the program is closed while an open settings window has proxy settings not flushed
  • better maintenance routines for rate limiters for incoming connections and torrent puncturing, should use less RAM
  • when the program closes in the GTK build, the message pump is now forcibly cleared, so all open property windows disappear without delay
  • when closing the program, the application lock is now released immediately before saving the configuration, so the wait dialog will reliably appear on a quick restart
  • several improvements to CPU and Memory health diagnostic profiling, much more accurate readings in Channels and Netbase categories
  • updated IP location tables
