We are pleased to announce the release of GNU Wget 1.20.

GNU Wget is a free utility for non-interactive download of files from the Web.
It supports HTTP(S), and FTP(S) protocols, as well as retrieval through HTTP

This is a small release with some bugfixes and a few quality of life

With this announcement, I'd also like to state that from now on, the latest
tarball of GNU Wget can always be attained using the following link:

Many thanks to everyone who contributed to this release:

Here are the compressed sources and a GPG detached signature[*]:

Use a mirror for higher download bandwidth:

Here are the MD5 and SHA1 checksums:

9f1515d083b769e9ff7642ce6016518e  wget-1.20.tar.gz
467c0ec7dab302cf1826970c1925999d64a6ee9d  wget-1.20.tar.gz

[*] Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
.sig suffix) is intact.  First, be sure to download both the .sig file
and the corresponding tarball.  Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify wget-1.20.tar.gz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 2A1743EDA91A35B6

and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.


* Changes in Wget 1.20

** 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.

On Behalf of the maintainers of GNU Wget,
