HttpClient

I would like to download a small textfile (UTF-8) and read it (it's a version number to check for updates for my app).
I would very much like to do that in the PCL.

On stackoverflow (download-and-save-image-from-html-source) I've read the suggestion to use HttpClient.
The author pointed to nuget->HttpClient

But this project is unlisted, so I guess I shouldn't use it anymore.

Can anybody tell me what I should use instead?
I would very much like to keep it as simple as possible.
