Upgrade Apache httpclient to 4.5.10 to fix URI rewriting #3029

See for detailed background.


4.5.7 introduced a change to normalize URIs by removing repeated forward slashes. However, this broke encoded reserved characters in the URI, such as the forward slash itself (%2F). I've been running into this while using the latest Dropwizard 1.3 release.

Example URI that fails: http://localhost/math/1%2F2 (gets converted to http://localhost/math/1/2 prior to the request being made)


4.5.8 fixed this issue, but .9 and .10 included good fixes as well, so bump up to 4.5.10.


See the release notes for the list of fixes:

@joschi joschi added this to the 1.3.17 milestone Nov 24, 2019
