Tixati 2.61


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 2.61 changelog:

  • individual per-channel tray activity notification options in right-click menu in channel list
  • individual per-contact tray online notification options in right-click menu in contact list
  • incoming peer connection encryption negotiation has more intelligent rate-limiting algorithm, less CPU load under extreme conditions
  • fixed problems with file/directory links (reparse points) in Windows
  • new compiler and build system for both Windows and Linux platforms, which produces more compact and efficient program executables
  • much better startup behavior when previous instance is still saving configuration .dat files
  • fixed several compatibility problems with older Windows systems like XP and Vista
  • fixed problems with excessive file/link association prompting in Linux
  • UPNP client implementation completely re-written, now operates much more reliably with more router models
  • fixed problems with Bandwidth Auto-Limiter IPv6 traceroute operation in Windows build
  • column widths now save correctly on GTK build
  • fixed force-polling option in Settings > Transfers > Files
  • fixed problems with Home view event log settings persisting between sessions
  • delay options for Auto-Startup now go up to 30 minutes
  • prevent Auto-Shutdown in first 2 minutes of program running or first 2 minutes since feature activated
  • tweaked DHT port confirmation timings, status indication is now more accurate
  • fixed several DHT warning dialogs that were not showing reliably under certain error conditions
  • spread out post-stop piece flushing interval randomization, for less stress on disk cache when many transfers are stopped
  • better memory fault tracking, differentiates failures due to true lack of system memory vs malformed allocation requests
  • fixed rare crashes during UPNP port mapping negotiation on Linux build
  • icon rendering routines fully re-worked for more accurate and faster display in very high DPI modes
  • fixed several display problems in Bandwidth Auto-Limiter advanced view
  • tracker timing system fully revised, now uses combination of uptime and clock so that system suspend/pause does not cause disruptions
  • extended tracker soft-start interval after system resume, allowing previously connected trackers to assert priority over others
  • UPNP and NAT-PMP timings now based on combination of system uptime and clock, preventing mapping disruptions after suspend/pause
  • more responsive DHT search transfer/channel selection algorithms, to give better recovery after network disruptions
  • channel gather/announce operations are slightly more aggressive now, giving quicker results especially for firewalled users
  • updated IP location tables
  • several other minor fixes and tweaks in the GUI
