EasyApache update 2020-5-6 included libcurl 7.70.0:
  • libcurl
    • EA-9044: Update libcurl to 7.70.0, drop 7.69.1.
However after running Home »Software »System Update, I still confirmed 7.69.1 is still being used (automatically installed 2020-4-2 -- one day after the release which included 7.69.1) :

Bash:
[[email protected] libcurl]# /opt/cpanel/libcurl/bin/curl --version
curl 7.69.1 (x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu) libcurl/7.69.1 OpenSSL/1.1.1g zlib/1.2.7 brotli/1.0.2 libssh2/1.8.0 nghttp2/1.40.0
Release-Date: 2020-03-11
Protocols: dict file ftp ftps gopher http https imap imaps pop3 pop3s rtsp scp sftp smb smbs smtp smtps telnet tftp
Features: AsynchDNS brotli GSS-API HTTP2 HTTPS-proxy IPv6 Kerberos Largefile libz NTLM NTLM_WB SPNEGO SSL TLS-SRP UnixSockets
I've confirmed this on two separate servers/OS/hosting providers running WHM/cPanel v86.0.18.

Is there a way to tell what EasyApache release I have installed? Any reason the 2020-5-6 release wouldn't be available yet 4 days later, or a way to force it? Thanks!

Running yum downgrade ea-libcurl actually installed 7.70.0, so apparently 7.70 was installed in a previous release then rolled back? 7.69.1 is causing a lot of curl errors starting April 22. Hundreds of posts online regarding the same across many different vendor products including guzzlehttp. All reports are on CentOS 6/7 and using WHM/cPanel. 7.70.0 seems to have fixed my issues, so curious why this was rolled back and when i will be released again?
