    Wow, looks very promising in the 1.4x betas.

    I can't wait to test it out.

    For those who do not know what I am talking about..

      XML-RPC interface is a big addition in the recent development. I tested xml-rpc with aria2rpc client script and it is very fun and easy to use. We don't run another aria2c instance if you want to download something while aria2c already download anything else. This is very resource friendly.

        Is it possible to keep aria2c running in the background as a daemon even if it's not downloading anything or will it exit once it's done downloading? I have a server and want to use XML-RPC from my main machine to queue downloads to the server, something like mldonkey (without the edonkey part).

          With --enable-xml-rpc option, aria2 continues to run even if download queue is empty, so aria2 behaves exactly what you want.
          -D option is also helpful. With -D option, aria2 runs as daemon and this is suitable for long running process.
          I think 2 options --enable-xml-rpc and -D are what you are looking for.

      always neat stuff!

      Release Name: aria2-1.4.0

      This release adds XML-RPC interface and the ability to run command
      when download started/stopped and the ability to save cookies. The
      current XML-RPC API allows users to add http(s)/ftp/torrent/Metalink
      download and change options dynamically. The APIs such as reporting
      download progress, file paths, URIs and peer information are also
      available. For complete API specification, see XML-RPC INTERFACE
      section in man page and
      http://apps.sourceforge.net/trac/aria2/wiki/XmlrpcInterface. The
      console readout was slightly updated and now includes the number of
      seeders the client has connected to. Slovak translation was
      added. Ukrainian and Brazilian Portuguese translation were updated.
