Freenet Grab is a replacement for the official Freenet Java freenet_request and frequest.exe. It is written in Python XML-RPC and has several options not available with the official CLI such as retrying on failure with incremental hops to live, downloading a list of keys from a file, tunable threshold and range for in-Freenet key indexes, and verifying lists of keys.
Release Notes: New features include multi-threaded simultaneous downloads, an install program for *nix, printing of file size at the beginning of a download with -v, and a debug option -D for exception reporting. A bug with the -l threshold was fixed. The program now quits properly. More exceptions are now caught, and error reporting was improved.
Release Notes: This release includes vast speed improvements with the switch to StreamingRequest XML-RPC, and a -d option to specify a directory where downloads are saved with the -f option.
Release Notes: Index searching within Freenet was added. Debugging output was removed.
