The Jakarta Apache Project has posted the second alpha HttpComponents HttpCore 4.0 (formerly known as HttpClient):

HttpCore provides a set of low level components, which can be used to build custom client and server side HTTP services.

This release represents a complete redesign of the Jakarta Commons HttpClient 3.x API, and a significant rewrite of the core HTTP components derived from the HttpClient 3.0 code base. HttpCore will form the foundation of the future releases of Jakarta HttpClient.

This release is primarily intended for API review and use in experimental projects. The HttpCore API is still deemed unstable, and it can still undergo significant changes based on the feedback from early adopters.

Alpha 2 fixes bugs.
