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 the ability to save unfinished downloads as text
file. aria2 can read the file with -i option on restart. This
release also adds the ability to download file from scratch when aria2
sees resume is not supported by remote server. This feature is
disabled by default. See --always-resume option for
details. --no-proxy option accepts IPv4 network address with CIDR
block. aria2 now doesn't send "Accept-Encoding: deflate, gzip" by
default. --http-accept-gzip option was added to toggle this behavior.
aria2 now treats lines starting "#" in -i list as comments. Several
XML-RPC methods were added: aria2.pause, aria2.unpause,
aria2.shutdown, and their families. The new exist status code '8' was
added. The bug that makes aria2 hang when system time changes while
aria2 is running was fixed on MinGW32, Mac OS X and the system which
has clock_gettime(). Several other bugs also have been fixed.
