   31 Wget 1.4.0 [formerly known as Geturl] is an extensive rewrite of
   32 Geturl. Although many things look suspiciously similar, most of the
   33 stuff was rewritten, like recursive retrieval, HTTP, FTP and mostly
   34 everything else. Wget should be now easier to debug, maintain and,
   35 most importantly, use.
   36 
   37 News in Wget 1.4.0:
   38 
   39 * Recursive HTTP should now work without glitches, even with Location
   40   changes, server-generated directory listings and other naughty
   41   stuff.
   42 
   43 * HTTP regetting is supported on servers that support Range
   44   specification. WWW authorization is supported -- try
   45   wget http://user:password@hostname/
   46 
   47 * FTP support was rewritten and widely enhanced. Globbing should now
   48   work flawlessly. Symbolic links are created locally. All the 
   49   information the Unix-style ls listing can give is now recognized.
   50 
   51 * Recursive FTP is supported, e.g.
   52   wget -r ftp://gnjilux.cc.fer.hr/pub/unix/util/
   53 
   54 * You can specify "rejected" directories, to which you do not want to
   55   enter, e.g. with wget -X /pub
   56 
   57 * Time-stamping is supported, with both HTTP and FTP. Try wget -N URL.
   58 
   59 * A new texinfo reference manual is provided.  It can be read with Emacs,
   60   standalone info, or converted to HTML, dvi or postscript.
   61 
   62 * Fixed a long-standing bug, so that Wget now works over SLIP
   63   connections.
   64 
   65 * You can have a system-wide wgetrc (/usr/local/lib/wgetrc by
   66   default). Settings in $HOME/.wgetrc override the global ones, of
   67   course :-)
   68 
   69 * You can set up quota in .wgetrc to prevent sucking too much
   70   data. Try `quota = 5M' in .wgetrc (or quota = 100K if you want
   71   your sysadmin to like you).
   72 
   73 * Download rate is printed after retrieval.
   74 
   75 * Wget now sends the `Referer' header when retrieving
   76   recursively.
   77 
   78 * With the new --no-parent option Wget can retrieve FTP recursively
   79   through a proxy server.
   80 
   81 * HTML parser, as well as the whole of Wget was rewritten to be much
   82   faster and less memory-consuming (yes, both).
   83 
   84 * Absolute links can be converted to relative links locally. Check
   85   wget -k.
   86 
   87 * Wget catches hangup, filtering the output to a log file and
   88   resuming work. Try kill -HUP %?wget.
   89 
   90 * User-defined headers can be sent. Try
   91   wget http://fly.cc.her.hr/ --header='Accept-Charset: iso-8859-2'
   92 
   93 * Acceptance/Rejection lists may contain wildcards.
   94 
   95 * Wget can display HTTP headers and/or FTP server response with the
   96   new `-S' option.  It can save the original HTTP headers with `-s'.
   97 
   98 * socks library is now supported (thanks to Antonio Rosella
   99   <Antonio.Rosella@agip.it>). Configure with --with-socks.
  100 
  101 * There is a nicer display of REST-ed output.
  102 
  103 * Many new options (like -x to force directory hierarchy, or -m to
  104   turn on mirroring options).
  105 
  106 * Wget is now distributed under GNU General Public License (GPL).
  107 
  108 * Lots of small features I can't remember. :-)
  109 
  110 * A host of bugfixes.

  135    is the same as
