You can change the size if you like...

Correct. We try not to make any configuration changes during a STABLE
release, only bugfixes.

Upgrading from one release to another (i.e. Squid-2.3 to Squid-2.4)
will most often require updates to your configuration file to match
the new version, but if possible we try to keep the directives
compatible with old versions, but sometimes when a feature has been
redone this is not possible.
