        Most proxy caches support HTTP/1.0. Many, including Squid,
support most important caching and performance features of HTTP/1.1,
including cache-control headers you mentioned above. Squid is not
HTTP/1.1 compliant yet, but you are unlikely to notice that.

At this time, there is no practical way to test for full HTTP/1.1
compliance so it is unknown whether any cache is fully compliant. For
most practical purposes, you probably do not care about formal
compliance though.
