Maniac Downloader is a download accelerator with a key improvement: after a segment has finished downloading, it will split one of the remaining segments into two and start a new download.
|Operating Systems||POSIX Windows (32 and 64 bit) Linux|

Release Notes: Refreshes stale connections based on a timeout. Opening the temporary file for writing without clobbering is more robust.
Release Notes: This release fixes resuming of downloads after being interrupted. Previously, the files with the data were truncated by the opened file handles.
Release Notes: The program now writes the state of the download to a file upon receiving SIGINT (Ctrl+C/etc.) or SIGTERM (kill) and can resume it from there.
Release Notes: Initial Freecode announcement.
