"it" is not longer a valid container for URL responses?

I missed that memo.  Which version did that change take place in?

My understanding is that GET requests are simply submitted in a LiveCode ‘put URL tURL into <container>” statement, and the results go into the container you designate. POST requests are returned to ‘it’.

As far as I know it’s always been like this.

The PUT results going to the urlResponse is a new one on me. But I’m happy to know it.
