aria2 1.11.0 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 adds JSON-RPC interface. The JSON-RPC and XML-RPC shares
same APIs. The JSON-RPC also supports JSONP. 2 new options were added:
--retry-wait and --async-dns-server. The downloads added by
aria2.addTorrent and aria2.addMetalink RPC method are now saved to the
file specified in --save-session option. The proxy options and related
environment variables now accept https:// and ftp:// scheme. This
release fixes the bug that causes segmentation fault when unpausing
downloads in some situations. MinGW32 build now looks for USERPROFILE
and the combination of HOMEDRIVE and HOMEPATH to get user's home
directory and doesn't check permission of .netrc file.
