We are currently shiping aria2-1.11.1.
However latest version is 1.11.2 which slightly improve security when
media by hiding them from process viewers (ps, ...):
"The username and password specified in command-line are now masked with
"*" immediately after parsed, so that ps cannot show username and password."
Since that does not happen for most users and since we don't provide auth media,
that's not a immediate concern, so should we update for Mageia 1?
