Aria is a download manager with a self-described similarity to ReGet or GetRight. It allows segmented downloading of files via HTTP or FTP protocols with the ability to pause, resume, and queue. Additional features include transfer scheduling, logging, wikipedia:checksum verification, HTTP proxy support, list file or cut-and-paste URL import, and a GTK-based GUI.
The original Aria project is no longer being actively developed, with the main developer now working on the aria2 project, a CLI-only rewrite featuring BitTorrent and Metalink support. Other features include speed throttling, cookie and authentication support, running as a daemon process, and selective file downloading in a multi-file torrent.
