See what is new in version 1.4.6 released on 7th Sep 2014


Latest Javadoc for 1.4.6 release are available here (also included in Maven repository):


  • Make asynchronous HTTP requests, handle responses in anonymous callbacks
  • HTTP requests happen outside the UI thread
  • Requests use a threadpool to cap concurrent resource usage
  • GET/POST params builder (RequestParams)
  • Multipart file uploads with no additional third party libraries
  • Tiny size overhead to your application, only 60kb for everything
  • Automatic smart request retries optimized for spotty mobile connections
  • Automatic gzip response decoding support for super-fast requests
  • Optional built-in response parsing into JSON (JsonHttpResponseHandler)
  • Optional persistent cookie store, saves cookies into your app's SharedPreferences
