    I made some very minor changes to English text of README.

    2 questions...

    1) didn't this change recently?

    • The maximum number of peers is 55. This limit may be exceeded when
      download rate is low. This download rate can be adjusted using
      --bt-request-peer-speed-limit option.

    The current implementation supports HTTP(S)/FTP/BitTorrent. The other
    P2P protocols are ignored.

    For checksum checking, MD5, SHA1, SHA256 are supported. If multiple
    hash algorithms are provided, aria2 uses SHA1. If checksum checking is
    failed, aria2 doesn't retry the download and just exits with non-zero
    return code.

    2) does the last sentence concern whole file checksums?

    if so, this might be more appropriate:

    If whole file checksum verification fails, aria2 doesn't retry the download and just exits with non-zero return code.

      > 1) didn't this change recently?

      Yes, --bt-max-peers option has been added to configure the max number of peers. The default value is not changed: 55.

      > 2) does the last sentence concern whole file checksums?

      Yes.

      >If whole file checksum verification fails, aria2 doesn't retry > the download and just exits with non-zero return code.

      Thanks, this is a lot better and clarifies my intention.
      It seems I wrote that sentence about whole checksum in my head but I forgot to include the word 'whole', lol. I should have to review my text myself.

        heh. I just wanted to clarify things. I committed that change.
