Thanks to Bram for all the time and effort he's put in!


Metamirrors for creating quick links

Metamirrors allows you to create .metalinks by submitting checksum
files (there's even an easy Firefox extension for doing so).
Try it out, it's really easy!


Metalink @ Packages Resources offers .metalinks for more projects

Besides Arch Linux, CentOS, the Linux Kernel,,
openSUSE, and Ubuntu - Edubuntu and Kubuntu have been added.

Fedora 7 Test 1 and openSUSE 10.3 Alpha 1 have also been released and
can be easily downloaded.

Thanks to Manuel Subredu and RoEduNet. Congratulations on your new
child :)

SmartFTP 2.0 supports Metalink for adding files to a transfer queue
and uses included checksums to verify files. SmartFTP itself doesn't
support segmented downloads yet.
This is a great Windows FTP client, please try it out.

This is the first version of the Gnutella P2P client that lets you
export your media library to a .metalink for sharing with others.
This uses Bram's Java Metalink parser which is available at


aria2 0.10.1 released

This is the best version of aria2 yet and has important new features.
There seems to be a problem getting the new version working on OS X.
Can anyone help? It would also be good to get feedback that the newest
version compiles on Solaris.


GetRight 6.2 is here

It just keeps on improving!


wxDownload Fast on Mac

wxDF compiles on Mac but could use some love to get in a usable state.
