Release Notes: This release adds a JSON-RPC interface. 2 new options were added: --retry-wait and --async-dns-server. This release fixes the bug that caused a segmentation fault when unpausing downloads in some situations. The MinGW32 build now looks for USERPROFILE and the combination of HOMEDRIVE and HOMEPATH to get a user's home directory, and doesn't check the permissions of the .netrc file.
