I am working on an extension that involves HTTP calls. I am using closeablehttpclient and httpclientbuilder which work fine when running under Eclipse but not when running normally. The reason seems to be the version of httpcore and httpclient jars. My release of MD has version 4.0.1 on httpcore and 4.0.3 on httpclient which are both way out of date. Are there any plans to update these?

Alternatively what do you use as an alternative? If you let me know I can use the same plan.

    Hi Mike,
    Sorry about the outdated libraries. If updating them doesn't seem to break anything then I'll go ahead and include the latest versions in the first MD2018 (or 2019, at this rate!) version. I don't think we use those libraries at all since all of our connections go through the java system HttpURLConnection (or at least our own implementation of it). The libraries are probably needed as a dependency of some other library... very likely Dropbox.
