The HTTP API has been committed to the trunk yesterday and should be
considered experimental prior to further testing and debugging. It would
be great if people can test it. Mostly the only two parts of WordPress
that are affected are the Cron and WordPress updater checking. If you
experience problems with the cron not running, then basically this is
the reason why.
The five classes are Fsockopen, fopen, Streams, Curl, and the HTTP
extension. Mostly, if you are using PHP5 and the HTTP extension is being
used, then the HTTP extension class will be used. If not, then Curl will
be used. If Curl extension is not enabled, then the Streams will be used.
Currently only one class will be used. If it fails, then you're pretty
much screwed. Err, sorry. I'm working on getting that fixed. If you have
any ideas or patches, then they are welcomed.
