Tixati 2.45


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

Changes in Tixati 2.45:

  • faster and more memory-efficient config loading on startup
  • support for config files over 4GB
  • fixed problems with channel share recursive mirroring, added loop prevention
  • update channel share mirrors on channel startup
  • Linux/GTK build now supports drag-dropping .torrent files and text with magnet links from shell
  • several fixes in Windows drag-drop shell interface
  • outgoing stream window now supports drag-dropping media files on list
  • outgoing stream window can now load .pls and .m3u playlist files along with the usual .ts and .mp3 media files
  • outgoing stream window can now save .pls and .m3u files by right-clicking two or more selected entries
  • trackers now report all-time upload/download statistics (same as seen in transfer details tab) instead of re-zeroing on every run
  • font size is now adjustable directly from the tray menu under the Layout submenu
  • on Windows systems, if directory watch notification fails on a network drive, polling method will automatically be tried
  • fixed problems with file replacement confirmation dialogs
  • fixed several problems with moving newly-created seeds while initial hash-checking was still underway
  • several URL decoding fixes when parsing file:// links from the Linux shell (command line, drag-drop, IPC, etc.)
  • fixed crash in bandwidth quota actions when a referenced bandwidth preset no longer exists
  • fixed rare crash caused by loading very old configuration files that contain files with a null path
  • additional per-file validity-checks when creating new torrents from local files
  • updated transfer-initiation routines to prevent needless file allocation under certain error conditions
  • better handling of broken symbolic links in Linux file systems
  • transfer preload window "Apply to All" option will not override category-capture paths for subsequent transfers
  • moving a newly-created seed to another device during initial checking will no longer clear the bitfield
  • out of memory termination is handled more gracefully, leaves a log file on desktop
  • improvements to channel search algorithms
  • core UDP/TCP socket wrappers have improved closedown/lingering semantics
  • stream playback pacing algorithms completely re-engineered and re-written, resulting in much smoother playback
  • option to launch streams directly with ffplay is now off by default (vlc is still on by default)
  • added charts in stream properties window to show validation rate and playback rate
  • new PNG rendering engine (for icons and graphics) that is much faster and less error-prone
  • fixed several problems with various tree sorting modes in main transfer view layout menu
  • better text positioning inside progress bars
  • the color of checkboxes in treeviews can now be altered in Settings > User Interface > Custom Colors
  • help-handling (F1 key) context subsystem has been replaced
  • resource storage tokenization/compression improvements
  • major updates to GUI settings and color storage (this will allow future addition of columns without disturbing custom order)
  • added several advanced positioning directives to GUI layout engine
  • implemented notifications for online contacts
  • implemented notifications for private messages from contacts
  • several minor fixes in the DHT
  • minor fixes in the GUI for channels classic layout
  • updated IP-location tables
  • fixed temporary allocation errors when a transfer file is forced through download - delete - download cycle
  • minor fixes to tray icon / menu and balloon notification system
  • seeding auto-stop on ratio/seeds now waits for file-touching upon transfer startup
  • move-on-complete paths are now properly cleared after completion, instead of falling back to default
  • several other internal upgrades to our GUI layout engine and framework have been made
  • fixed errors when creating directories upon transfer move-on-complete and simultaneous incomplete-rename
