Tixati 1.91

Tixati is a free and easy to use BitTorrent client featuring detailed views of all seed, peer, and file transfer properties. Also included are powerful bandwidth charting and throttling capabilities, and a full DHT implementation.

Why choose Tixati?
Tixati is one of the most advanced and flexible BitTorrent clients available. And unlike many other clients, Tixati contains NO SPYWARE, NO ADS, and NO GIMMICKS.

Tixati has the following features:

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

Release notes:
Version 1.91 is now available.  The new version features many important optimizations and fixes throughout the program, as well as vastly improved media streaming within channels via a new outgoing playlist interface and .mp3/.ts file support.

  • extremely large transfers containing up to 50,000 individual files can be processed smoothly
  • transfers with very high piece counts (hundreds of thousands) are fully functional
  • extended meta-info size limits and improved meta-info download and upload algorithms
  • DHT IPv6 query rate-limiting is now much more accurate, compensates for wide 6to4 ranges
  • better overall DHT flood-protection heuristics to prevent wasting outgoing bandwidth
  • piece selection algorithm now compensates for de-selected files on remote peers
  • more permissive magnet link processing that tolerates encoding errors and bad attributes
  • new transfer filename processing handles overly-long names much better, avoids creating duplicates
  • improved peer connection/disconnection algorithms, shorter early retry delays under high demand
  • seeding ratio/count stop is now delayed until any active move/alloc/checking completes
  • better shell file and link association control
  • main bandwidth graphs now display channel traffic in a different color
  • chat views can now have their font changed separately (Settings> Appearance > Fonts)
  • freshly gathered channels are displayed in a distinct color
  • incoming private messages show the time received in the window caption and text tooltip
  • outgoing channel streams can be created from a .ts or .mp3 file (create a channel and type /streamout)
  • full-featured playlist interface for outgoing streaming that can be used to create a regular schedule
  • outgoing stream hashing is now 5x faster on 64-bit Windows machines, matching Linux performance
  • outgoing stream file hashing can be pre-cached, greatly reducing CPU requirements to originate streams
  • more intelligent connection rotation algorithms that better account for channel streams
  • channel permission issuance has much longer time to live, easing maintenance on large channels
  • better stream playback scheduling to smooth out hiccups on some older media players
  • further RSS compatibility fixes to support feeds that are severly broken or misconfigured
  • IP-Location tables have been updated from all five regional registries, up to 2012-08-09
  • numerous optimizations have been done in the GUI, greatly reducing flicker and CPU usage
  • many other minor fixes and improvements have been made throughout the program
