      Release Notes: Adds support for content-on-error. Adds support for WARC files. Fixes a memory leak problem in the GNU TLS backend. Autoreconf works again for distributed tarballs. Prints some diagnostic messages to stderr, not to stdout. Reports stdout close errors. Accepts the --report-speed option. Enables client certificates when GNU TLS is used. Adds support for TLS Server Name Indication. Accepts the arguments --accept-reject and --reject-regex. The GNU TLS backend correctly honors the timeout value. Adds support for RFC 2617 Digest Access Authentication.

        Release Notes: Support was added for HTTP/1.1. Persistent connections are used with proxies which support them. The GNU TLS backend now works again and has been made default vs. OpenSSL. Now "--timestamping" and "--continue" work well together. By default, wget now uses the original URL to get the local filename on server redirects, to address the security vulnerability reported as CVE-2010-2252. Portability issues were fixed. Several other minor enhancements and bugfixes were made.

            Release Notes: This is a bugfix release, including fixes for a regression involving the combination of -O and -nc and a couple of opportunities for Wget to crash.

                Release Notes: A problem with authenticating over HTTPS through a proxy was fixed. The combination of -r or -p with -O was downgraded from an error to a warning. Bugs with displaying the progress bar in non-English locales where too many spaces could be inserted, causing the display to scroll, were fixed. The .listing file is no longer appended to if --no-remove-listing and --continue are specified. ".." is now allowed at the beginning of paths in FTP URLs again.

                  Release Notes: Interrupted downloads no longer result in renaming of the file. The progress bar now displays correctly in non-English locales (and a related assertion failure was fixed). Wget no longer issues a GET request over HTTP for files it should know it's not going to download.

                    Release Notes: The license was changed to GPLv3+. Improvements were made to the HTTP password authentication code, bringing it a little closer to RFC compliance. Basic support was added for respecting filenames specified via "Content-Disposition" headers. An --ignore-case option was added to make wildcard- and suffix-matching case-insensitive. The --spider feature is working again (as it was broken in previous release). Many bugs were fixed.
