This is the new development version, totally rewritten in C++
latest features like ICAP added.
Is a new source package really needed? Is there no sensible upgrade
path? I had sort of hoped it could be as drop in and go as most
upgrades are, but perhaps not.
I think I need to clarify my plans on this.
Squid-2.5 is the stable release, and will not get new features any
more (actually it didn't get new features in the last 2 years).
Squid-3.0 is where eveolution happens, but is considered
experimental upstream. Probably there will be no 'stable' release of
Squid-3.0 in the next six months (and with the current plans will not
get the October freeze for etch).
In the meantime it whould be useful for Debian and the squid
development team to see how Squid-3.0 behaves on different situations
and different architectures.
So I'm packaging Squid-3.0 from new sources (using CDBS for the first
time, great!). The resulting packages will be named 'squid3, squid3-
common, squid3-client, squid3-cgi' and will conflict with the
existing squid packages. I'm also thinking of keeping this packages
out of testing to avoid releasing etch with experimental software.
When Squid-3.0 will be released as stable, the new packages will
become the 'squid' package and upgrade will be guaranteed.
