Tixati 2.58

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 2.58 changelog:

  • download piece handling, caching, and hashing completely re-engineered
  • long-running incomplete pieces are cached on-disk, giving drastic RAM reduction with many downloads
  • all pieces are cached in separate files, within per-transfer folders
  • initial full loading from piece cache upon program start has been eliminated, greatly improving load times
  • final incomplete piece saving has been greatly simplified, which has improved final shutdown time
  • much more efficient scattered hashing of multi-source pieces, can now handle thousands of source peers per piece
  • piece repair algorithm thoroughly searches all multi-source permutations in the most efficient order
  • throttled, multi-threaded piece repair hashing for stability in torrents under heavy attack
  • peer piece assignment algorithm has been greatly improved and now prioritizes repair of long-running pieces
  • fixed rare crash originating in UPNP port-mapping client when receiving unexpected responses from router
  • new diagnostic charts in help menu that show memory allocation rate and level
  • all diagnostic charts now have full range of separate detail charts for all 15 sub-categories
  • added workarounds to deal with remote clients that continuously reply to block requests with lt_donthave messages
  • numerous fixes to tree/list view controls throughout the program, including faster text rendering
  • fixed display defects relating to progress-bar controls within tree/list view on some GTK themes
  • global disk operation queuing engine has had several improvements to it's task prioritization algorithms
  • file/folder names are now correctly incremented when creating duplicate files
  • better support for control label pass-through when working with 3rd-party screen-readers
  • support for clickable fopnu: links in channels, share profiles, and private messages
  • magnet/dsc links with invalid characters in the title field are handled more gracefully
  • fixed display problems with font-fallback when rendering text via Windows Uniscribe (channels/share/messages)
  • fixed font-fallback installed font enumeration problems, improved registry reader for better compatibility
  • text views now show correct disabled background color when embedded in a tab
  • lines in text views are now clipped to prevent aggressive unicode diacritic stacking from bleeding upward
  • fixed problems with numeric spin-box notification mechanism that would prevent update upon Settings window close
  • peer event logging has had many readability fixes
  • more efficient directory change notification monitor used for optionally watching folders for .torrent files
  • several other minor GUI fixes
  • updated IP-Location tables
