we, the maintainers, are happy to announce the release 1.99.2 of GNU Wget2.

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

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 HTTP2,
HTTP compression,
parallel connections and use of If-Modified-Since HTTP header.

GNU Wget2 is licensed under GPLv3+. Libwget is licensed under LGPLv3+.

Thanks to all authors that made this release possible (list
auto-generated, sorted by # of commits).
Also many thanks to all contributors and translators who are not listed
in git meta data.
