HttpClient is very much usable.  The "alpha" state refers much more to
design flux (although much of that has been worked through in the past
couple of months).  HttpClient seems to have rather few bugs for its size
and complexity.

I'd encourage you to use the nightly builds rather than the "alpha 1"
release (you can grab one from
There's an "alpha 2" release coming in the next few days, and hopefully
httpclient is approaching a genuine 2.0 release soon.  The current/A2
version is substantially enhanced and should be much closer to what the
final 2.0 version looks like than 2.0A1 is.

HttpClient does provide support for mulitpart/form-data POSTs, but I'll
have to let someone more familiar with that code describe how to use it.
