HTTPS has been supported since engine version 2.6 judging by the libURL 
source - so that would be LiveCode 2.x (for some 'x' - I can't remember 
the exact version the engine version and the - what was Revolution - 
version synced up).

However, it is unlikely that https will work anymore from those engines 
with any suitably maintained web-server since the SSL protocol version 
they use will likely be judged insecure by the server and thus not allow 
connection. (Although that can be very unwisely changed on the webserver 

Another facet here will be the 'root certificate bundle' which will 
almost certainly be well out of date for older engines (at some point we 
did make collection of SSL certificates from the OS automatic - that was 
before 6.0 by the look of it).
