aria2 is a multi-protocol & multi-source, cross platform download utility. The supported protocols are HTTP(S), FTP, BitTorrent, Metalink. It can download a file from multiple sources/protocols and tries to utilize your maximum download bandwidth.
aria2 1.15.2 ============ Release Note ------------ This release fixes several critical bugs. It also adds new features such as TLS SNI and CORS support. The --file--allocation option now take another value trunc. The new option --enalbe-mmap was added. aria2 now uses system-wide SSL/TLS certificates by default, which eliminates the requirement to specify --ca-certificate option. Changes ------- * Catch exception from Socket::getPeerInfo() when pooling connection. Socket::getPeerInfo() may fail if its TCP connection has already disconnected. In this case, we log this error. The success or failure of pooling connection should not affect the later execution of the program. This bug may cause segmentation fault if Socket::getPeerInfo() throws exception during pooling connection after successful tracker request. * Fixed assertion error if --retry-wait is used. In CreateRequestCommand, if Request object returned from getRequest() is still sleeping, CreateRequestCommand pools it back but still holds its reference. This makes assertion error in UnknownLengthPieceStroage::hasMissingUnusedPiece() from AbstractCommand::execute(). * Added new file allocation method called 'trunc'. --file-allocation option can now take new value 'trunc'. 'trunc' uses ftruncate() system call or platform-specific counterpart to truncate a file to a specified length. * Use int64_t instead of off_t. Using off_t, at least, in DiskAdaptor layer is problematic because torrent can contain under 2GiB files but total sum of those files may exceed 2GiB limit, which makes off_t overflow in 32 bit system without large file support. So we use int64_t in API. We'll check the file length before download so that it does not exceed max off_t. * Added TLS SNI support. * Rewritten timegm replacement function. The algorithm is based on Python 2.7 calendar.timegm. * Use system-wide certificates for SSL. Use system-wide certificates for SSL. For GnuTLS it requires the latest version, 3.0.20. OpenSSL had it for longer. This means that if SSL library is properly configured to locate system-wide certificates store, the user don't have to use --ca-certificate option. Also packagers don't have to use --with-ca-bundle configure option. Patch from Cristian Morales Vega * Fixed base64::decode() return "" if input ends with garbage and no padding. * Changed default Peer ID prefix. The new Peer ID prefix is "A2-$MAJOR-$MINOR-$MICRO-", where $MAJOR, $MINOR and $MICRO are the major version, the minor version and the micro version respectively. For instance, 1.15.2 release of aria2 will use "A2-1-15-2-". * Don't percent-decode filename value in Content-Disposition. We only percent-decode filename* value in Content-Disposition because the encoding is fully specified. But since filename value is not, so we just accept it as is. * Don't sum in-flight piece which does not intersect filtered ranges. When calculating completed length, don't sum the completed length of piece which does not intersect filtered ranges. * Fixed segmentation fault when logger failed to open log file. * Added ARIA2_STATIC precious variable to configure option. To build statically linked aria2 binary, give ARIA2_STATIC=yes to configure, like this: $ ./configure ARIA2_STATIC=yes * Use PRId64 for int64_t format specifier * Handle the case when MINGW32 vsnprintf returns -1. MINGW32 vsnprintf returns -1 if output is truncated. Increased buffer for vsnprintf in WinConsoleFile and fmt. * Added --enable-mmap option. If this option is used, map files into memory using mmap(2). This option is experimental. * Added CORS preflight request support in RPC interface. This change is based on the patch from binux. aria2 1.15.1 ============ Release Note ------------ This release fixes the bug that prevents --bt-lpd-interface from working. If some options sent by RPC request are not acceptable for the download type, they are now simply ignored instead of rejecting RPC request entirely. The aria2 RPC server now returns 4XX error code if the request is not valid in the HTTP level. To improve packaging, --with-bashcompletiondir configure option was added. This option overrides where the aria2c bash_completion file is going to be installed. All manual pages are now generated by Sphinx. Changes ------- * Return appropriate HTTP status code on RPC failure. In this change, we return 404 if the request path is neither /json-rpc nor /rpc. If XML feature is not enabled and /rpc is requested, return 404. If XML parser failed, return 400. JSON parser failure has been handled well in the existing code. * Ignore unacceptable options in RPC request instead of throwing error. This change allows RPC client to send same options for the different type of downloads. * Handle sockaddr_in.sin_len and sockaddr_in6.sin6_len. Check sockaddr_in.sin_len and sockaddr_in6.sin6_len are available and assign values to them properly. This change fixes unit test error and most error related to getnameinfo() on netbsd. * Removed dependency on inet_aton. Implemented inetPton as a replacement of inet_aton. inetPton is implemented using net::getBinAddr. This change fixes bug#3525424. * Added --with-bashcompletiondir configure option. By default, bash_completion file named aria2c is installed to the directory $prefix/share/doc/aria2/bash_completion. To change the install directory of the file, use --with-bashcompletiondir option. * Converted README.asciidoc into README.rst * Use Sphinx for aria2 manual page documentation. The source files for manual pages are placed under doc/manual-src. The manual pages are generated under doc/manual-src/$LANG/_build. The HTML version manual page was dropped from the distribution archive. * Fixed the bug which prevents --bt-lpd-interface from working. Fixes bug#3520125 aria2 1.15.0 ============ Release Note ------------ This release adds JSON-RPC over WebSocket. It uses the same request/response JSON objects with existing JSON-RPC over HTTP and adds event notifications from server to client. See manpage for details. TLS hostname check is rewritten based on RFC 6125 and it is used for both GNUTLS and OpenSSL builds. The --bt-remove-unselected-file option was added. This option removes the unselected files when BitTorrent download is completed. Changes ------- * Use CreateProcessW instead of CreateProcessA in MinGW build. This means filename is now passed as wchar string, not UTF-8 encoded char string. * Check with pkg-config only: c-ares, openssl, sqlite3 and zlib. Removed --with-*-prefix configure option for c-ares, openssl, sqlite3, zlib and expat. Use CPPFLAGS and/or PKG_CONFIG_PATH instead. * Fixed compile error with i686-w64-mingw32 and x86_64-w64-mingw32 cross compilers. * Get the home directory of the effective user ID using getpwuid() if $HOME is not defined. * Don't use locale dependent toupper and tolower. * Rewritten TLS hostname check based on RFC 6125 for both GNUTLS and OpenSSL builds. * Added --bt-remove-unselected-file option. Removes the unselected files when download is completed in BitTorrent. To select files, use --select-file option. If it is not used, all files are assumed to be selected. Please use this option with care because it will actually remove files from your disk. This option is default to false. * Fixed compile error on Open Solaris. Fixes bug#3497518 * Added JSON-RPC over WebSocket. * Fixed assertion failure if Chunked encoding along with Content-Length is used. * Fixed clang and gcc-4.7 warning and errors. * Fixed the bug that aria2 cannot read line longer than 4096 bytes from the file specified by --input-file option. Fixes bug#3495336
