 The Requests library has released a new version: 1.8.0.

 A number of the fixes contained in this release are already in the
 WordPress Core copy of it via [38727], [46258], [47902] and [49382].

 However, this release contains further improvements, including:
 * A (significant) performance fix when using cURL
 * An update to the bundled certificates
 * Improved compliance with RFC2616
 * and more

 Full changelog: https://github.com/WordPress/Requests/releases/tag/v1.8.0
 Website (updated): https://requests.ryanmccue.info/

 It is recommended for WordPress to update the bundled version of Requests
 in the next release.
