Make WordPress Core

External Libraries: Update the Requests library to version 2.0.0.

This is a major release and contains breaking changes.

Most important changes to be aware of for this release:

  • All code is now namespaced. Though there is a full backward compatibility layer available and the old class names are still supported, using them will generate a deprecation notice (which can be silenced by plugins if they'd need to support multiple WP versions). See the upgrade guide for more details.
  • A lot of classes have been marked final. This should generally not affect userland code as care has been taken to not apply the final keyword to classes which are known to be extended in userland code.
  • Extensive input validation has been added to Requests. When Requests is used as documented though, this will be unnoticable.
  • A new WpOrg\Requests\Requests::has_capabilities() method has been introduced which can be used to address #37708.
  • A new WpOrg\Requests\Response::decode_body() method has been introduced which may be usable to simplify some of the WP native wrapper code.
  • Remaining PHP 8.0 compatibility fixed (support for named parameters).
  • PHP 8.1 compatibility.
