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 short option -x for --max-connection-per-server
option and -k for --min-split-size option. It also adds
--max-download-result=NUM option. This option sets maximum number of
download result kept in memory and the default value is 1000.
--max-connection-per-server now accepts up to 16. '@' character is
now allowed in username embedded in URI. This release fixes the bug
that aria2 reports error and exits with non-zero status when file is
already downloaded and checksum is available.
Please note that since 1.10.0 release, aria2 uses 1 connection per
host by default and has 20MiB segment size restriction. So whatever
value you specify using -s option, it uses 1 connection per host. To
make it behave like 1.9.x, use -x16 -k1M (see
--max-connection-per-server and --min-split-size option in man
page). If you specify multiple hosts, aria2 will use all of them and
open multiple connections.
