If you ask Henrik Nordstrom's (he's the main squid guy at the moment) if
squid-2.3 is suited for production use, he says NO.

If even one of the squid developers himself says to stay with 2.2.5,
why should I move to squid-2.3 ?

See above. If you had mailed me directly I'd have given you the
same answer.

As soon as 2.4 becomes -STABLE I'll package it.
