I am pleased to announce the new version of GNU wget.

It is available for download here:

and the GPG detached signatures using the key E163E1EA:

To reduce load on the main server, you can use this redirector service
which automatically redirects you to a mirror:

Noteworthy changes:

** Remove FTP passive to active fallback due to privacy concerns.

** Add support for --if-modified-since.

** Add support for metalink through --input-metalink and --metalink-over-http.

** Add support for HSTS through --hsts and --hsts-file.

** Add option to restrict filenames under VMS.

** Add support for --rejected-log which logs to a separate file the reasons why
   URLs are being rejected and some context around it.

** Add support for FTPS.

** Do not download/save file on error when --spider enabled

** Add --convert-file-only option. This option converts only the
   filename part of the URLs, leaving the rest of the URLs untouched.

Special thanks to Ander Juaristi and Hubert Tarasiuk for their Google
Summer of Code projects, that are part of this release.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to this release, in particular Tim
Rühsen and Darshit Shah made an amazing job maintaining wget.

Please report any problem you may experience to the address@hidden
mailing list.

Have fun!
