if http protocol creator might have not thought keeping in mind the todays web applications, they can release a new version of the http protocol as this is a stateless protocol. i know it is going to increase the burdent on web container
what i am asking is why http protol was desingned as stateful protocol in its latest versions

HTTP is a stateless protocol. What the latest version 1.1 added is the capability to keep connections open for multiple successive requests ("keep-alive"). But no state is kept, and the overhead on the server is not all that big. And the performance benefit on the client is quite noticeable.
