This release fixes the bug that prevents --checksum option from
working correctly. It also fixes the bug that log file is not created
if a warn level log is created before log file is opened. Now aria2
doesn't assume download has completed just because file size matched.
The old behavior is problematic because aria2 just assumes download is
completed but in reality it is not.
* Supported network-path reference in HTTP redirect.
* Updated bash_completion.
* aria2 now doesn't assume download has completed just because file
size matched. The only exception is zero-length file. If server
tells that file is zero-length and --checksum option is given,
aria2 now correctly checks its checksum. There is one known issue:
If downloaded file is zero-length file and .aria2 file exists, it
will not be deleted on successful verification, because .aria2 file
is not loaded.
* Fixed the bug that --checksum is not working. SFBUG#3466888
* Fixed compile error without libnettle, libgcrypt and openssl.
* Fixed the bug that log file is not created if there is warning
before log file is opened.
This release adds many available options to aria2.changeOption and
aria2.changeGlobalOption RPC methods. IPv6 literal address is now
supported in the proxy options. --metalink-server option is now
deprecated and --split option should be used instead. In this release,
--metalink-server is the alias of --split option. The format ETA in
console readout is changed slightly. New option --stop-with-process is
* Updated Chinese (Simplified), Spanish, French and Russian
translations. Thanks to all translators.
* Updated Russian man page. Thanks to ITriskTI.
* Ignore peer which possibly sent bad data in next few minuts. In
aria2, one piece is downloaded from several peers, so when hash
check failed for that piece, it cannot determine which peer(s) sent
bad data. So, we ignore peer who sent last block of data in random
minutes. We use randomized timeout because all peers get waken up
at the almost same time.
* Added suggestion for unknown/ambiguous options. The help messages
shown when argument error were redesigned and less verbose now.
When unknown or ambiguous option is given, show suggestions like
"Did you mean...". Some constant values related to levenstein
distance are borrowed from git help.c.
* Added --stop-with-process=PID option. This feature stops
application when process PID is not running. This is useful if
aria2 process is forked from a parent process. The parent process
can fork aria2 with its own pid and when parent process exits for
some reason, aria2 can detect it and shutdown itself. The code
which detects whether or not given process PID is running is
contributed by Emmanuel Engelhart.
* Support IPv6 address for FTP via HTTP tunneling.
* The previous implementation could not handle the situation when
user, password and proxy URI is given various order. Now we just
set rules: username set in --*-proxy-user overrides username in
--*-proxy option, no matter in any order username, password and
proxy URI are parsed. Likewise, password set in --*--proxy-passwd
overrides password in --*-proxy option.
* Changed format of ETA. Now no leading 0 is used. If hour part
and/or min part is non-zero, and sec part is 0, sec part is
omitted, like this "1h3m".
* Rewritten Metalink XML parser. Now we don't strip white spaces
while parsing Metalink V3 document.
* Now xml attribute and characters in RPC request is not stripped at
* Fixed bug that some information such as port number is lost if
redirect URI contains only path component.
* Apply PREF_MAX_CONNECTION_PER_SERVER to BitTorrent WEB Seeding
* Reuse in-flight and pooled URIs when a download is paused.
* Deprecated --metalink-server option. Use --split option instead.
* Made max value of --select-file to 65535
* Use same domain-match algorithm for no-proxy and netrc. Now
"example.org" does not domain-match ".example.org" in both
* For waiting or paused downloads, the options listed in Input File
subsection in man page are available in aria2.changeOption RPC
method, except for following options: dry-run, metalink-base-uri,
parameterized-uri, pause and piece_length.
* Made --download-result, --save-session, --server-stat-of and
--save-cookies option available in aria2.changeGlobalOption. In
addition to them, the options listed in Input File subsection in
man page are also available, except for following options:
checksum, index-out, out, pause and select-file.
* Made --uri-selector option available in -i list.
* Support IPv6 literal address in proxy option.
* Support IPv6 CIDR block in --http-no-proxy option.
* HttpProxyOptionHandler: Enclose hostname with square brackets if
hostname is IPv6 numeric address.
