Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 2
Name        : squid
Version     : 2.5.STABLE9                      
Release     : 1.FC2.2                  
Summary     : The Squid proxy caching server.
Description :
Squid is a high-performance proxy caching server for Web clients,
supporting FTP, gopher, and HTTP data objects. Unlike traditional
caching software, Squid handles all requests in a single,
non-blocking, I/O-driven process. Squid keeps meta data and especially
hot objects cached in RAM, caches DNS lookups, supports non-blocking
DNS lookups, and implements negative caching of failed requests.

Squid consists of a main server program squid, a Domain Name System
lookup program (dnsserver), a program for retrieving FTP data
(ftpget), and some management and client tools.

Note that squid-2.5.STABLE7 and later do not use /etc/squid/errors for
error messages.  If you do not want to use the default English error
messages, you must set the error_directory in your
/etc/squid/squid.conf to the appropriate subdirectory of

- more upstream patches
- include -libbind patch, to prevent squid from picking up a dependency
  on libbind.
- remove references to /etc/squid/errors, since squid now uses
  {_datadir}/squid/errors/English by default.  (overridable in squid.conf)
- Mark {datadir}/squid/errors as config(noreplace) so custom error messages
  won't get scribbled on.

* Wed Mar 16 2005 Jay Fenlason <fenlason at redhat.com> 7:2.5.STABLE9-1.FC3.1

- New upstream version, with 14 upstream patches.  Includes fix for
  bz#150234 cookie leak in squid
