Release 1.99.1

GNU Wget2 Release 1.99.1 (alpha)

GNU Wget2 is the successor of GNU Wget, a file and recursive website downloader.

Designed and written from scratch it wraps around libwget, that provides the basic functions needed by a web client.

Wget2 works multi-threaded and uses many features to allow fast operation.

In many cases Wget2 downloads much faster than Wget1.x due to HTTP zlib compression, parallel connections and use of If-Modified-Since HTTP header.

GNU Wget2 is licensed under GPLv3+.

Libwget is licensed under LGPLv3+.
