    This release adds support for multi-peer downloads, enabling clients to
    increase retrieval speed for big files by concurrently downloading data for
    the same URL from several other clients.
    Please note that this release introduces a new protocol version (v5), as well
    as HTTP store format (v2), so that data cached by previous versions of the
    client will be dropped.
      - Multi-peer downloads: Concurrently download the same data shared by
        several clients for the same URL, or common data from the beginning of
        unfinished downloads of the URL (like canceled transfers or streamed
        videos).  A reference client is chosen which has signatures for the newest
        and most complete data for the URL.
