Thanks, Manolo! This is great news! I can't wait to try it out. KGet isn't included in the new kde 4 preview, is it? since it's in the make_kget_cool directory? Will kget support checksums, both for full files and for partial files (for repairing downloads)?

Urs, thanks for mentioning metalink on the commit digest. That was nice to read :) Hopefully the metalink mimetype will be registered with IANA pretty soon.

There was also a post on slashdot and another interesting blog:
