aria2 1.8.1 released

aria2 is a lightweight multi-protocol & multi-source, cross
platform download utility operated in command-line. It supports
HTTP/HTTPS, FTP, BitTorrent and Metalink.

This release fixes the bug that causes segmentation fault if unknown
options exist in aria2.conf file and user cannot include empty line in
aria2.conf.

Following new command line options are added: --http-no-cache,
--bt-metadata-only and --human-readable option. --dir option now
treats "" as ".". --all-proxy, --http-proxy, --https-proxy and
--ftp-proxy option accept empty string "". When "" is given, it
erases previously defined proxy.

aria2.getSessionInfo XML-RPC method was added. aria2.tellWaiting and
aria2.tellStopped XML-RPC method accept a negative integer as
offset. For example, in aria2.tellWaiting, 'offset' == -1 points last
download in the waiting queue and 'offset' == -2 points the download
before the last download, and so on. 'dir' and 'files' key were added
to the response struct of aria2.tellStatus XML-RPC method. The value
associated with 'files' key is the list of files. Its element is the
same struct used in aria2.getFiles XML-RPC method. 'uris' key was
added to the response struct of aria2.getFiles XML-RPC method. The
value associated with 'uris' key is the list of URIs. Its element is
the same struct used in aria2.getUris XML-RPC method. aria2 now
returns gzip compressed XML-RPC response if XML-RPC client accepts
gzip content encoding.
