Sweet Success..or well a part of it

Hello there,

If you’ve been following my posts for a while then you might have realized that I’m not good at blogging regularly, especially when it comes to my work. However, after over a month of coding, and over two months of being accepted into the Google Summer of Code, I am proud to share some tangible development that I have done. After some slight changes, my working branch of KGet, now has a good minimal support for Metalink HTTP as described by RFC 6249.
Here is a brief summary of what it supports

  • Download from multiple mirrors as specified in the HTTP header response
  • Secure verification of hashes as specified in the HTTP header response.

 

Here is a set of pictures to show its test use while downloading http://download.services.openoffice.org/files/stable/3.3.0/OOo-SDK_3.3.0_Linux_x86-64_install-deb_en-US.tar.gz
