Tixati 2.55 released with bug fixes and performance improvements

Tixati

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. 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 portable version is meant to run on a USB flash drive or other portable media. It stores all its configuration files in the same folder as the executable binary files, and all file paths are stored in a format relative to the program executable folder.

It is important you do not delete the "tixati_portable_mode.txt" file within the executables folder. This file is what triggers Tixati to run 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 that is formatted in FAT16/FAT32, you may experience some lag when initially loading a new transfer. This is because initializing and allocating large files on flash-based media consumes a greater amount of time and resources compared to a conventional hard-drive.

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

Tixati 2.55 changelog:

  • GUI dynamic control positioning framework has been overhauled for less flicker and jitter during resizing, and more flexible layouts
  • ctrl-v in transfers window will open magnet links from clipboard
  • Windows Uniscribe rendering now supports FontFallback specification, so all Unicode code points will now render on any system
  • seeding ratio limit at lowest setting (0.01) immediately stops seeding
  • numerous compatibility updates to HTTP client that supports trackers and RSS
  • major overhaul of Linux treeview controls to fix several issues with column sizing, rendering, and expander lockout
  • added work-around for crash in Uniscribe when it attempts to process UTF-16 surrogate pairs with unknown script type
  • optimized DNS resolver to handle more simultaneous outgoing requests and process timeouts more gracefully
  • several protocol updates to channel peer-peer connections to consume less bandwidth and synchronize quicker
  • better file error/corruption detection throughout the program
  • overhaul of directory watch layer (inotify/ReadDirectoryChangesW) for more efficient and reliable operation
  • further adjustment of DHT rate-limits to better filter requests from poorly implemented remote clients that cause request flooding
  • updated IP location tables from 2017/08/09 delegation lists
