    It has come to our attention that many people are using /api/general.php to check for updates to their plugins, even though this was never really an officially published API.

    In particular when we tried to redirect all http connections to https last night this caused many plugins to break.
    As such we are moving this API and modifying it slightly, the details of which are as follows:

    Code (Text):
    The only supported http method is GET.

    The old API will be turned off by the end of this year.

    The old API has (at least temporarily) been disabled — two years later than previously announced.
