0.5.1 (2014-08-25)
  • Added improved bar and estimated transfer time
0.3 (2014-03-08)
  • Added the option to set download’s output directory
0.2 (2014-03-06)
  • Init version, uses urllib2 instead of urlretrieve (deprecated), reads in chunks with network transfer rate calculation. Fancy bar. Human readable file-sizes. Checks Md5 if available and download final size. It’s a heavy modification of python-wget made for my needs that i decided to share.
