Since there were no active maintainers for this project for a long time, and issues got stale, security issues pile up and it's not viable to maintain this project further, given there are quality replacements, this project is closing down.

This library has many issues handling modern TLS/SSL security protocols using and problems with validating chain-of-trust of remote services, it communicates with. It also suffers from high-memory-usage issues, when handling large upstream or downstream jobs.

It is not suitable for modern projects, and thus, unless someone takes over the maintenance and invests big time into making it performance and secure again, it is not recommended to use the library further.

For issues with using this library or migrating to different one, use appropriate forum, for example https://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/android-async-http

Use these alternatives, as replacement in your app please:
