aria2 1.10.6 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 downloading files larger than 4GB
fails on 32 bit systems. It also fixes the bug that dht.dat file is
not saved. The improper use of return value of vsnprintf was fixed,
which caused segmentation fault when formatting strings more than 1024
characters long.

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.
