        Writing on behalf of the Squid Team, as the release manager for Squid
3.0, I'm very happy to announce the availability of squid-3.0-PRE1, the
first user-snapshot of squid-3.0.

        This is the first release with a formalised release process -
documented at <http://www.squid-cache.org/Devel/release-process.html>.

        Bugzilla <http://www.squid-cache.org/bugs/index.cgi> now has a 3.0
Version number, and we have a bug 524 -
<http://www.squid-cache.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=524> which is our
blocking collection - squid 3 bugs not assigned to this collection (as
in - bug X block 524) WILL BE IGNORED in terms of the release process.
If you are testing squid-3 and encounter a problem, please check bug
524's dependency tree
<http://www.squid-cache.org/bugs/showdependencytree.cgi?id=524> to see
if your bug is already there - and if not, please create one and assign
it as blocking 524.

        We will release squid-3 once two weeks with no new blocking bugs have
passed -after- fixing the last blocking bug. Today, we aren't aware of
any current release-blocking bugs. YOUR assistance as early adopters and
testers is critical in ensuring a high quality release of squid-3.

        The current release notes for squid-3 are available at
<http://www.squid-cache.org/Versions/v3/3.0/RELEASENOTES.html> - it's a
long list, so I'm not posting it here :}.

Finally, a heads-up to distribution maintainers, squid-3 is now C++, and
will require a C++ compiler and run-time as part of your
build-requirements and dependencies lists...
