Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2005-373
2005-05-17
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product : Fedora Core 3
Name : squid
Version : 2.5.STABLE9
Release : 1.FC3.6
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.
