Update on Rolling Curl

Back in 2009 I blogged about using curl_multi() in PHP without blocking. The goal was to provide a better way to process multiple HTTP requests in parallel. The code was well received and I ended up turning my original snippet of code into a full blown PHP Class.

And then I got busy. Meanwhile the list of bugs and feature requests began to pile up.

Thankfully, a few guys have picked up my slack on the project. Alexander Makarow has been diligently maintaining the code for me, fixing bugs and making it better. Fabian Franz forked it on Github and added some of the top requested features.

Thanks to their efforts, Rolling Curl is in better shape than ever. This is why I love open source.
