aria2 is a utility for downloading files. The supported protocols are HTTP(S), FTP, BitTorrent, and Metalink. It has a powerful segmented downloading ability, downloading a file from multiple sources and multiple protocols and utilizing your download bandwidth to the maximum. It supports downloading a file from HTTP(S)/FTP and BitTorrent at the same time, while the data downloaded from HTTP(S)/FTP is uploaded to the BitTorrent swarm. Using Metalink's chunk checksums, aria2 automatically validates chunks of data
while downloading a file like BitTorrent.

This release fixes a libgcrypt version checking error. Several commandline options have been added. aria2 now returns an error response if an RPC request parameter has the wrong type. For the MinGW32 build, Unicode filename support has been added. aria2 now uses libnettle and libgmp by default instead of libgcrypt. If you want to use libgcrypt, use the configure options --without-libnettle and --with-libgcrypt.
