The Squid HTTP Proxy team is very pleased to announce the
availability of the Squid-3.1.18 release!

This release brings bug fixes for several compile and crash issues found
in earlier releases.
Several of these problems are serious stability issues in certain
environments. All squid-3 users are advised to upgrade to this release
as soon as possible.

  * Bugs 2619 and 2910 are now fixed. Resolving several cases of memory

* Issues in URL parsing, Digest authentication, FTP and SSL certificate
handling have been resolved.

  * Several annoying compile issues with SASL, cstdargs, the dnsserver
helper, the AR build tool, radix, and the cf_gen tool have been fixed.

  * Persistent connection support for all uncommon request methods has
been improved.

* Several unusual external ACL behaviours have been traced to stale
cache entries being used. This issue has been around since Squid-2
series, but became much more visible in 3.1. The problem is now fixed.

* EFAULT errors saving the swap.state files and leading to errors
loading on startup have been resolved.
