ALPHA release with a partial HTTP/2 support by the end of the year is
still realistic. 

The problem is that HTTP/1.1 and HTTP/2 have completely different
message transport protocols with literally nothing in common but name.
If we want the HTTP/1.1 and HTTP/2 transports share the same protocol
handling code and have consistent message handling APIs (most likely we
do) I will likely have to completely rewrite the existing HTTP/1.1
message transport code. It is a daunting task. I am still unsure how to
approach it best and what impact it may have on the project time line.
All I can say I am working on it.
