I have updated the wget package in cygwin/contrib to version 1.8-1.
Some of the new features include:
- new progress indicator
- limit the download rate
- improved recursion retrieval and link conversion
- improved BASE tags support
Take a look at /usr/doc/wget-1.8/NEWS for the full picture
GNU Wget is a free software package for retrieving files using HTTP,
HTTPS and FTP, the two most widely-used Internet protocols. It is a
non-interactive commandline tool, so it may easily be called from
scripts, cron jobs, terminals without Xsupport, etc.
To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page. This downloads setup.exe to your
system. Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.
Note that we do not allow downloads from sources.redhat.com (aka
cygwin.com) due to bandwidth limitations. This means that you will need
to find a mirror which has this update.
In the US,
ftp://mirrors.rcn.net/mirrors/sources.redhat.com/cygwin/ is a
reliable high bandwidth connection.
usually pretty good.
In DK, http://mirrors.sunsite.dk/cygwin/ is usually up-to-date
If one of the above doesn't have the latest version of this package then
you can either wait for the site to be updated or find another mirror.
The setup.exe program will figure out what needs to be updated on your
system and will install newer packages automatically.
If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list at: firstname.lastname@example.org . I would appreciate if you would
use this mailing list rather than mailing me directly. This includes
ideas and comments about the setup utility or Cygwin in general.
If you want to make a point or ask a question, the Cygwin mailing list
is the appropriate place.
