LeahGet (LGet) is a simple HTTP resource retrieval utility developed for universal use. The goal of this project is to produce a multiple-platform utility which takes full advantage of new and/or useful mechanisms, such as IPv6 support, large-file transfers, HTTP v1.1 extended features (chunked/resuming), high-compression encodings, bandwidth throttling, and SSL/TLS, to name a few.
Release Notes: Proper support for URI redirection was added. "Unspecified output" file-resuming on redirect is also managed. The header-parsing and file-opening routines were rewritten, which should fix some abnormal behavior which iterated under specific circumstances.
Release Notes: After a few aesthetic tweaks and a handful of bugfixes, this release seems solid. HTTP responses are now handled intelligently. Proper support for file-resuming was implemented. Rate calculation was also refined.
