We are running into some major issues with the older dependency of httpclient 4.0 in some grails plugins. It is currently preventing us from using the release plugin (the de-facto way of publishing projects, which we need) and geb (functional testing, which we would very much like to use) together. Is there any possibility of upgrading httpclient/httpcore to 4.1 or the latest version?
