Tixati 2.88


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

  • additional Transfer checks to detect inconsistent file structure after downloading metadata
  • fixed crash when Transfer metadata is reloaded from config file with incorrect file sizes or misaligned piece layout
  • new optional Transfer columns to show known peer and seed counts
  • complete re-write of Channel user shared data and Channel Information message caching
  • much lower Channel memory usage for large shared data sets
  • smaller channels.dat config file, faster loading on program startup
  • re-wrote all routines for synchronization of Channel Information and user shared data
  • faster updating of Channel Information tab between v2.88 or newer clients
  • much faster and more reliable updating of Channel user shared data
  • slightly lower bandwidth usage for Channel connections
  • fixed minor display problems when browsing incomplete Channel user shared data, especially with incomplete images
  • all Channels now default to 10-year shared data time to live
  • when switching Channels in list view, now correctly preserves and restores text from outgoing chat message edit box in lower tab
  • fixed link parsing in Channel output text so that leading or trailing special chars won't be included
  • fixed minor sorting problems in Channel forum tab
  • major re-write of some Windows and GTK control classes to fix problems with handle destroy sequencing in complex layouts
  • fixed crash when program is closed while an open Settings window has unflushed proxy settings
  • better maintenance routines for rate limiters for incoming connections and torrent hole-punching, should use less RAM
  • when program is closing in GTK build, the message pump is now forcibly cleared, so that any open property windows disappear without delay
  • upon quitting program, app-lock is now released immediately before config save, so the wait dialog will reliably appear on quick re-launch
  • several improvements to CPU and memory state diagnostic profiling, far more accurate readings in the Channels and Netbase categories
  • updated IP location tables
