aria2 1.10.4 released

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 fixes the bug that aria2 hangs when FTP server does not
send '226 Transfer Complete' message and the bug that the time used in
file allocation is taken into account when calculating download speed.
Non UTF-8 filenames are now percent-encoded. The comments and name in
.torrent file in XML-RPC response are also percent-encoded if they are
not UTF-8. Compile error on OpenBSD4.7(i386) was fixed. A warning
message when CA certificates are not imported is not printed in
console. It is shown when certificate verification error is actually

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.
