Product : Fedora Core 3
Name : squid
Version : 2.5.STABLE9
Release : 1.FC3.4
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 /usr/share/squid/errors

* Wed Mar 23 2005 Jay Fenlason lt;fenlason@redhat.comgt; 7:2.5.STABLE9-1.FC3.4

- Add more upstream patches.
- add the -libbind patch, to avoid picking up a new dependency on libbind.
- Remove references to /etc/squid/errors from this spec, since squid
now uses {_datadir}/squid/errors/English/ by default (overridable in
/etc/squid/squid.conf, as always)
- mark {_datadir}/squid/errors as config(noreplace) so custom error messages
won't get stomped on.

* Wed Mar 16 2005 Jay Fenlason lt;fenlason@redhat.comgt; 7:2.5.STABLE9-1.FC3.3

- Actually apply the -date patch.

* Wed Mar 16 2005 Jay Fenlason lt;fenlason@redhat.comgt; 7:2.5.STABLE9-1.FC3.2

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