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.
Enjoy XML RPC interface :)
Feedback is always welcome.
always neat stuff!
Release Name: aria2-1.4.0
