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

This release fixes many of the assertion and segmentation fault bugs
found over the prior 3.2 beta releases. There are some few regressions
still remaining to be found.

  * The regression in earlier 3.2 betas spoofing client IP properly for
TPROXY has been fixed.

  * ext_session_acl helper upgraded to version 1.2. This version is
updated to use modern BerkeleyDB 4.1+ APIs for improved support of
synchronisation amongst multiple helper processes.

  * The missing ERR_DNS_FAIL error messages on DNS lookup failure has
been restored.

  * ssl-bump decryption in Squid can now send a CA chain for generated
certificates. This allows a local intermediate CA to sign the CA
certificate used by the generator. Further assistance with testing that
is welcome.

  * adaptation_meta directive has been added to pass custom headers to
ICAP or eCAP services.

  * QoS support has been extended to allow masking the values relayed
through Squid. This allows Squid to merge a tag value of its own with
the value being relayed through.

  * SMP shared memory statistics are now collected and displayed in the
cache manager reports.

  As usual this release contains all the fixes passed on to 3.1 series
alongside its own changes.

  See the ChangeLog for the list of other minor changes in this release.

  All users interested in 3.2 features are encouraged to assist testing
this release.

Please refer to the release notes at
when you are ready to make the switch to Squid-3.2

Upgrade tip:
   "squid -k parse" is starting to display even more useful hints about
squid.conf changes.

This new release can be downloaded from our HTTP or FTP servers


or the mirrors. For a list of mirror sites see
