| Tixati v2.39 Alpha-2 |
May 26, 2016
Version 2.39 Alpha-2 is now available.
This release introduces some major internal changes to channel operation, and a new sound-notification feature.
Peers now cache all received broadcasts that form each member's shared data, and can exchange these broadcasts via direct connection with other peers that are running v2.39-a2 or newer. This has the effect of directly syncronizing the shared data between all peers in a relatively short amount of time. This will even help when not all peers in a channel are running the new version, because their random broadcasts will still be cached by the peers that are running the new version.
Several other bandwidth and resource optimizations have been done to the channels, and we are still working on several more.
A new sound-notification feature has been introduced that can be configured to play any WAV file or one of nine built-in sounds when one of many events occurs. This includes download completion, channel messages, channel join/leave, channel private messages, contacts online/offline, and contact private messages. There is also an option so that these notifications can be configured on a per-channel or per-contact basis, by right clicking the channel or contact. All these options and more can be found in Settings > User Interface > Behavior > Notifications.
There have also been several minor GUI fixes applied throughout the program.
We are still working on a few other fixes and expect to have another release ready soon. Please check this page for updates often.
Thanks for helping us test!
