GNU wget 1.18 released

Item posted by Giuseppe Scrivano <gscrivano> on Thu 09 Jun 2016 04:33:15 PM UTC.

Noteworthy changes

  • By default, on server redirects to a FTP resource, use the original URL to get the local file name. Close CVE-2016-4971.  This introduces a backward-incompatibility for HTTP->FTP redirects and

  any script that relies on the old  behaviour must use --trust-server-names.

  • Check the HSTS file is not world-writable before using it.
  • Parse <img srcset> attributes on a recursive download.
  • Fix problem with SNI server names having trailing dot(s)
  • New options --bind-dns-address and --dns-servers.
  • When Wget is built with libiconv, it now converts non-ASCII URIs to the locale's codeset when it creates files.  The encoding of the remote files and URIs is taken from --remote-encoding, defaulting to UTF-8.  The result is that non-ASCII URIs and files downloaded via HTTP/HTTPS and FTP will have names on the local filesystem that correspond to their remote names.
