"Plain http support will be dropped in the future."

Just been browsing the messages here and came across this bombshell in respect to curl and addstatus.jsp

“Plain http support will be dropped in the future.”

How soon will this happen ?

The curl I have running here does not have SSL built in- I just tried it and it comes back with error 1 - Unsupported protocol, so it’s going to involve a lot of software rebuilds, as a quick check shows I don’t even have the SSL libraries on my PV system.

So my question is - how soon will http access be dropped ?

Probably not for a long time, but it is recommended to move to https if possible.

OK. Thanks.
