Tixati v2.32 Alpha-1
A new round of alpha testing has begun.
Since the last full release, there have been major changes in three areas of the program.
The system that manages local transfer file locations, moving, and renaming has been completely re-engineered. Managing naming conflicts and merging of local files is much simpler, and confirmation prompts are used in a few key places.
The Individual Tracker Settings system has had major upgrades and fixes. It is now much simpler for common uses, such as adding or removing trackers in newly loaded transfers.
A new bandwidth quota management system has been added. This is accessible from the Bandwidth view under the Advanced button menu. Quotas can be managed with an hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly cycle. Quota reset times, hours of effectiveness, and actions to take upon reaching limit are all fully configurable.
Several other minor fixes and improvements have been made since the v2.31 release:
-file handles are kept closed for a 6 second window after completion if using file completion shell commands
-file completion shell commands will execute even if transfer is immediately stopped by ratio/seed limit
-fixed minor bugs in incoming connection handling when set to single protocol mode
-peer-id randomization every 6-36 hours (synced to local IP change if possible)
-deselecting all files in preload dialog will not trigger category capture
-fixed minor display updating problems when switching transfers between categories
-directly embedded tracker URL peerid/headers/cookie flags will have priority over settings in tracker individual options
-additional tracker individual option "xfer_peerid:" that will change peer-id of transfers containing matching trackers
-overhaul of internal traffic counting system, now also includes headers, dht and http from rss, trackers, etc.
-added option to watch a directory for .desktop and .url files in addition to .torrent files
-in Settings>Transfers>Meta-Info added option to auto-delete torrent file when manually loading from specific directory
Once these initial changes are tested, we will introduce more features in subsequent alpha releases.
We are also working on profiling and performance tuning several parts of the program and will be testing some internal changes in later alpha releases.
If you find problems, please let us know in the forum.
Remember to check this page daily. We may post new releases very rapidly.
Thanks for helping us test!
