GNU Wget 1.20 Released

Item posted by Darshit Shah <darnir> on Fri 30 Nov 2018 12:14:38 AM UTC.

Noteworthy Changes in this release:

  • Add new option `--retry-on-host-error` to treat local errors as transient and hence Wget will retry to download the file after a brief waiting period.
  • Fixed multiple potential resource leaks as found by static analysis
  • Wget will now not create an empty wget-log file when running with -q and -b switches together
  • When compiled using the GnuTLS >= 3.6.3, Wget now has support for TLSv1.3
  • Now there is support for using libpcre2 for regex pattern matching
  • When downloading over FTP recursively, one can now use the

--{accept,reject}-regex switches to fine-tune the downloaded files

  • Building Wget from the git sources now requires autoconf 2.63 or above. Building from the Tarballs works as it used to.
