.NET gets an HTTP Client (finally!)

2010-01-21 @ 18:48#

@DarrelMiller is posting on Microsoft's HTTP library.

"From what I have been told, this library will not make it into the .Net 4 release but it is still being actively developed."

Darrel Miller, "Why the Microsoft.Http library is awesome."

while it's a bummer that this is still a ways off from official release (and that it's apparently buried in the MVC library), it's good to see .NET finally getting a high-level implementation of an HTTP Client. i resorted to rolling my own HTTPClient for C# more than two years ago and use it almost every day.
