Version 2.9.5 has just been released.
Apart from other improvements, it introduces support for making HTTP requests with the newly introduced HttpStart.SK, HttpRequest.SK, UrlEncodedParams.SK functions. This feature will be improved further in upcoming releases. These functions (in conjunction with DataFromHtml, DataFromJson and other existing functions) can be used to automate file downloads and API calls through complex flows of http requests and responses.
A blog post on this feature will be published once most features of HTTP requests are supported.
Check out the release notes for more details.
