Tixati 2.15


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 it's 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 version 2.15 is a major update that includes new features and several major and minor bug-fixes:

  • optional automatic seed queue management system that rotates seeds in and out of standby depending on seed/peer counts and bandwidth
  • optional download queue auto-skip feature that will start additional queued downloads when bandwidth is under-utilized
  • queue management is fully configurable via XMLe in Settings > Transfers > General
  • dragging transfers can now queue/unqueue them in addition to simple reordering
  • peer/seed counts in status column reflect verified connections and not unverified tracker/dht counts
  • super-seeding improvements
  • several web-seeding fixes
  • several transfer-related GUI improvements
  • outgoing tracker transactions are queued and delayed under heavy load
  • category sub-menus grouped according to last category separator
  • new "codeview" fixed-width font for editing XMLe for menus, socket parameters, and queue management settings
  • legacy .dat configuration files are no longer loaded/saved (they have not been in use since v1.41), which speeds up shutdown
  • relaxed incoming connection rate limits
  • lowered incoming connection timeouts
  • several tracker protocol and timing improvements
  • improved poisoned piece recovery routines (especially with multiple block sources)
  • channel streaming improvements, especially for low bitrates and small segments
  • channel info/share editing remembers state when channel selection changes
  • several other channel-related GUI fixes
  • fixed problems with auto-throttle trace/ping on IPv6-only networks
  • major overhaul of core event loop and task-queuing system for smoother operation
  • eliminated dependencies on win32 pthreads library, most of OpenSSL, and boost::regex
