I never used the curl API, so I don't know what the multi interface is, but if I remember correctly wget2 introduced non-blocking sockets. That's all I know. I did not find a lot of info on Google, except maybe for this email on gnutls mailing list:

It supports GNU TLS natively, it is supposed to download faster than curl, and if a minor feature is missing it might be an opportunity to make libwget grow.
