What was the reason for not including 'std.net.curl' in the 
Windows phobos library? I've added it and recompiled phobos for 
use but i just wondered why it was missing?

For others i blogged how to recompile with curl support here:

IIRC it is licencing issues, they can't include curl in the distribution without certain requirements that were deemed to awkward to implement. --e89a8fb20340c7457304c43d1dce Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8 <p><br> On Jul 7, 2012 8:45 AM, &quot;Gary Willoughby&quot; &lt;<a href="mailto:dev kalekold.net">dev kalekold.net</a>&gt; wrote:<br> &gt;<br> &gt; What was the reason for not including &#39;std.net.curl&#39; in the Windows phobos library? </p> <p>IIRC it is licencing issues, they can&#39;t include curl in the distribution without certain requirements that were deemed to awkward to implement.</p> --e89a8fb20340c7457304c43d1dce--

 IIRC it is licencing issues, they can't include curl in the distribution
 without certain requirements that were deemed to awkward to implement.

No, it was a bug in AutoTester. Se discussion at pull 613: https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/phobos/pull/613 CURL licence permits us from including CURL _binaries_ only so one have to download it manually from "Other Downloads" section of http://dlang.org/download.html -- Денис В.
