<EM>This document contains the release notes for version 3.0 of Squid.
Squid is a WWW Cache application developed by the National Laboratory
for Applied Network Research and members of the Web Caching community.</EM>
<HR>
<H2><A NAME="s1">1. Notice</A></H2>

<P>The Squid Team are pleased to announce the release of Squid-3.0.PRE5 for pre-release testing.</P>
<P>This new release is available for download from 
<A HREF="http://www.squid-cache.org/Versions/v3/3.0/">http://www.squid-cache.org/Versions/v3/3.0/</A> or the 
<A HREF="http://www.squid-cache.org/Mirrors/http-mirrors.html">mirrors</A>.</P>
<P>A large number of the show-stopper bugs have been fixed along with general improvements to the ICAP support.
While this release is not deemed ready for production use, we believe it is ready for wider testing by the community.</P>
<P>We welcome feedback and bug reports. If you find a bug, please see 
<A HREF="http://www.squid-cache.org/Doc/FAQ/FAQ-11.html#ss11.19">http://www.squid-cache.org/Doc/FAQ/FAQ-11.html#ss11.19</A> for how to submit a report with a stack trace.</P>

<H2><A NAME="s2">2. Known issues</A></H2>

<P>Although this release is deemed good enough for testing in many setups, please note the existence of

<P>In particular, ESI may still be too buggy for meaningful testing at this stage.</P>

<H2><A NAME="s3">3. Changes since Squid-3.0-PRE4</A></H2>

<P>The change history can be 
<A HREF="http://www.squid-cache.org/Versions/v3/3.0/changesets/">viewed here</A>.</P>

<H2><A NAME="s4">4. Changes since Squid-2.5.STABLE14</A></H2>

<H2><A NAME="ss4.1">4.1 Major new features</A>
</H2>

<P>Squid 3.0 represents a major rewrite of Squid 2.5 and has a large number of new features.</P>
<P>The most important of these are:</P>
<P>
<UL>
<LI>Edge Side Include implementation (www.esi.org)</LI>
<LI>ICAP implementation (www.i-cap.org)</LI>
<LI>Better support for reverse proxy setups. The httpd_accel_* directives are now gone, replaced by http(s)_port options and cache_peer based request forwarding</LI>
<LI>Better support for SSL</LI>
<LI>Better support for external ACLs</LI>
<LI>Finer control over cacheability (refresh_pattern)</LI>
<LI>Custom log formats and the ability to log different requests to different log files</LI>
</UL>
</P>
<P>Most user-facing changes are reflected in squid.conf (see below).</P>

<H2><A NAME="ss4.2">4.2 Logging changes</A>
</H2>

<H3>access.log</H3>

<P>The TCP_REFRESH_HIT and TCP_REFRESH_MISS log types have been replaced because they were misleading (all refreshes need to query the origin server, so they could never be hits). The following log types have been introduced to replace them:</P>
<P>
<DL>
<DT><B>TCP_REFRESH_UNMODIFIED</B><DD><P>The requested object was cached but STALE. The IMS query for the object resulted in "304 not modified".</P>
<DT><B>TCP_REFRESH_MODIFIED</B><DD><P>The requested object was cached but STALE. The IMS query returned the new content.
</P>
</DL>
</P>
<P>See 
<A HREF="http://www.squid-cache.org/Doc/FAQ/FAQ-6.html#ss6.7">http://www.squid-cache.org/Doc/FAQ/FAQ-6.html#ss6.7</A> for a definition of all log types.</P>




<H2><A NAME="ss4.3">4.3 Changes to squid.conf</A>
</H2>

<P>There have been many changes to Squid's configuration file since Squid-2.5.</P>
<P>This section gives a thorough account of those changes in three categories:</P>

</P>
<DT><B>sslpassword_program</B><DD><P>
<PRE>
Default: none

Specify a program used for entering SSL key passphrases

</PRE>
</P>
<DT><B>minimum_icp_query_timeout (msec)</B><DD><P>
<PRE>
Default: 5

Normally the ICP query timeout is determined dynamically.  But
sometimes it can lead to very small timeouts, even lower than
the normal latency variance on your link due to traffic.
Use this option to put an lower limit on the dynamic timeout
value.  Do NOT use this option to always use a fixed (instead
of a dynamic) timeout value. To set a fixed timeout see the
'icp_query_timeout' directive.
        
</PRE>

Usage:

logformat &lt;name> &lt;format specification>

Defines an access log format.

The &lt;format specification> is a string with embedded % format codes

% format codes all follow the same basic structure where all but
the formatcode is optional. Output strings are automatically escaped
as required according to their context and the output format
modifiers are usually not needed, but can be specified if an explicit
output format is desired.

% ["|[|'|#] [-] [[0]width] [{argument}] formatcode

"       output in quoted string format
[       output in squid text log format as used by log_mime_hdrs

</PRE>
</P>
<DT><B>check_hostnames on|off</B><DD><P>
<PRE>
Default: on

For security and stability reasons Squid by default checks
hostnames for Internet standard RFC compliance. If you do not want
Squid to perform these checks turn this directive off.
        
</PRE>
</P>
<DT><B>url_rewrite_concurrency redirect_concurrency</B><DD><P>
<PRE>
Default: 0

The number of requests each redirector helper can handle in
parallell. Defaults to 0 which indicates the redirector
is a old-style singlethreaded redirector.
        
</PRE>
</P>
<DT><B>read_ahead_gap</B><DD><P>
<PRE>
Default: 16 KB

The amount of data the cache will buffer ahead of what has been
sent to the client when retrieving an object from another server.
        
</PRE>
</P>
<DT><B>log_access allow|deny acl acl...</B><DD><P>
<PRE>
Default: none

This options allows you to control which requests gets logged
to access.log (see access_log directive). Requests denied for
logging will also not be accounted for in performance counters.
        
</PRE>
</P>
<DT><B>httpd_suppress_version_string on|off</B><DD><P>
<PRE>
Default: off

Suppress Squid version string info in HTTP headers and HTML error pages.
        
</PRE>
</P>
<DT><B>httpd_accel_surrogate_id</B><DD><P>
<PRE>
Default: unset

Surrogates (http://www.esi.org/architecture_spec_1.0.html)
need an identification token to allow control targeting. Because
a farm of surrogates may all perform the same tasks, they may share
an identification token.
        
</PRE>
</P>
<DT><B>http_accel_surrogate_remote on|off</B><DD><P>
<PRE>
Default: off

Remote surrogates (such as those in a CDN) honour Surrogate-Control: no-store-remote.
Set this to on to have squid behave as a remote surrogate.
        
</PRE>
</P>
<DT><B>esi_parser libxml2|expat|custom</B><DD><P>
<PRE>
Default: custom

ESI markup is not strictly XML compatible. The custom ESI parser
will give higher performance, but cannot handle non ASCII character
encodings.
        
</PRE>
</P>
<DT><B>email_err_data on|off</B><DD><P>
<PRE>
Default: on

If enabled, information about the occurred error will be
included in the mailto links of the ERR pages (if %W is set)
so that the email body contains the data.
Syntax is &lt;A HREF="mailto:%w%W"&gt;%w&lt;/A&gt;
        
</PRE>
</P>
<DT><B>via on|off</B><DD><P>
<PRE>
Default: on

If set (default), Squid will include a Via header in requests and
replies as required by RFC2616.
        
</PRE>
</P>
<DT><B>refresh_all_ims on|off</B><DD><P>
<PRE>
Default: off

When you enable this option, squid will always check
the origin server for an update when a client sends an
If-Modified-Since request.  Many browsers use IMS
requests when the user requests a reload, and this
ensures those clients receive the latest version.

By default (off), squid may return a Not Modified response
based on the age of the cached version.
        
</PRE>
</P>
<DT><B>request_header_access</B><DD><P>
<PRE>
Default: none

Usage: request_header_access header_name allow|deny [!]aclname ...

WARNING: Doing this VIOLATES the HTTP standard.  Enabling
this feature could make you liable for problems which it
causes.

This option replaces the old 'anonymize_headers' and the
older 'http_anonymizer' option with something that is much
more configurable. This new method creates a list of ACLs
for each header, allowing you very fine-tuned header
mangling.

This option only applies to request headers, i.e., from the
client to the server.

You can only specify known headers for the header name.
Other headers are reclassified as 'Other'. You can also
refer to all the headers with 'All'.

For example, to achieve the same behavior as the old
'http_anonymizer standard' option, you should use:

request_header_access From deny all
request_header_access Referer deny all
request_header_access Server deny all
request_header_access User-Agent deny all
request_header_access WWW-Authenticate deny all
request_header_access Link deny all

Or, to reproduce the old 'http_anonymizer paranoid' feature
you should use:

request_header_access Allow allow all
request_header_access Authorization allow all
request_header_access WWW-Authenticate allow all
request_header_access Proxy-Authorization allow all
request_header_access Proxy-Authenticate allow all
request_header_access Cache-Control allow all
request_header_access Content-Encoding allow all
request_header_access Content-Length allow all
request_header_access Content-Type allow all
request_header_access Date allow all
request_header_access Expires allow all
request_header_access Host allow all
request_header_access If-Modified-Since allow all
request_header_access Last-Modified allow all
request_header_access Location allow all
request_header_access Pragma allow all
request_header_access Accept allow all
request_header_access Accept-Charset allow all
request_header_access Accept-Encoding allow all
request_header_access Accept-Language allow all
request_header_access Content-Language allow all
request_header_access Mime-Version allow all
request_header_access Retry-After allow all
request_header_access Title allow all
request_header_access Connection allow all
request_header_access Proxy-Connection allow all
request_header_access All deny all

although many of those are HTTP reply headers, and so should be
controlled with the reply_header_access directive.

By default, all headers are allowed (no anonymizing is
performed).
        
</PRE>
</P>
<DT><B>reply_header_access</B><DD><P>
<PRE>
Default: none

Usage: reply_header_access header_name allow|deny [!]aclname ...

WARNING: Doing this VIOLATES the HTTP standard.  Enabling
this feature could make you liable for problems which it
causes.

This option only applies to reply headers, i.e., from the
server to the client.

This is the same as request_header_access, but in the other
direction.

This option replaces the old 'anonymize_headers' and the
older 'http_anonymizer' option with something that is much
more configurable. This new method creates a list of ACLs
for each header, allowing you very fine-tuned header
mangling.

You can only specify known headers for the header name.
Other headers are reclassified as 'Other'. You can also
refer to all the headers with 'All'.

For example, to achieve the same behavior as the old
'http_anonymizer standard' option, you should use:

reply_header_access From deny all
reply_header_access Referer deny all
reply_header_access Server deny all
reply_header_access User-Agent deny all
reply_header_access WWW-Authenticate deny all
reply_header_access Link deny all

Or, to reproduce the old 'http_anonymizer paranoid' feature
you should use:

reply_header_access Allow allow all
reply_header_access Authorization allow all
reply_header_access WWW-Authenticate allow all
reply_header_access Proxy-Authorization allow all

reply_header_access Content-Encoding allow all
reply_header_access Content-Length allow all
reply_header_access Content-Type allow all
reply_header_access Date allow all
reply_header_access Expires allow all
reply_header_access Host allow all
reply_header_access If-Modified-Since allow all
reply_header_access Last-Modified allow all
reply_header_access Location allow all
reply_header_access Pragma allow all
reply_header_access Accept allow all

reply_header_access Accept-Encoding allow all
reply_header_access Accept-Language allow all

reply_header_access Retry-After allow all
reply_header_access Title allow all
reply_header_access Connection allow all
reply_header_access Proxy-Connection allow all
reply_header_access All deny all

although the HTTP request headers won't be usefully controlled
by this directive -- see request_header_access for details.

By default, all headers are allowed (no anonymizing is
performed).
        
</PRE>
</P>
<DT><B>minimum_expiry_time</B><DD><P>
<PRE>
Default: 60 seconds

The minimum caching time according to (Expires - Date)
Headers Squid honors if the object can't be revalidated
defaults to 60 seconds. In reverse proxy enorinments it
might be desirable to honor shorter object lifetimes. It
is most likely better to make your server return a
meaningful Last-Modified header however. In ESI environments
where page fragments often have short lifetimes, this will
often be best set to 0.
        
</PRE>
</P>
<DT><B>icap_enable on|off</B><DD><P>
<PRE>
Default: off

If you want to enable the ICAP module support, set this to on.
        
</PRE>
</P>
<DT><B>icap_preview_enable on|off</B><DD><P>
<PRE>
Default: off

Set this to 'on' if you want to enable the ICAP preview
feature in Squid.
        
</PRE>
</P>
<DT><B>icap_preview_size</B><DD><P>
<PRE>
Default: -1

The default size of preview data to be sent to the ICAP server.
-1 means no preview. This value might be overwritten on a per server
basis by OPTIONS requests.
        
</PRE>
</P>
<DT><B>icap_default_options_ttl (seconds)</B><DD><P>
<PRE>
Default: 60

The default TTL value for ICAP OPTIONS responses that don't have
an Options-TTL header.
        
</PRE>
</P>
<DT><B>icap_persistent_connections on|off</B><DD><P>
<PRE>
Default: on

Whether or not Squid should use persistent connections to
an ICAP server.
        
</PRE>
</P>
<DT><B>icap_send_client_ip on|off</B><DD><P>
<PRE>
Default: off

This adds the header "X-Client-IP" to ICAP requests.
        
</PRE>
</P>
<DT><B>icap_send_client_username on|off</B><DD><P>
<PRE>
Default: off

This adds the header "X-Client-Username" to ICAP requests
if proxy access is authentified.
        
</PRE>
</P>
<DT><B>icap_service</B><DD><P>
<PRE>
Default: none

Defines a single ICAP service

icap_service servicename vectoring_point bypass service_url

vectoring_point = reqmod_precache|reqmod_postcache|respmod_precache|respmod_postcache
This specifies at which point of request processing the ICAP
service should be plugged in.
bypass = 1|0
If set to 1 and the ICAP server cannot be reached, the request will go
through without being processed by an ICAP server
service_url = icap://servername:port/service

Note: reqmod_precache and respmod_postcache is not yet implemented

Example:
icap_service service_1 reqmod_precache 0 icap://icap1.mydomain.net:1344/reqmod
icap_service service_2 respmod_precache 0 icap://icap2.mydomain.net:1344/respmod
        
</PRE>
</P>
<DT><B>icap_class</B><DD><P>
<PRE>
Default: none

Defines an ICAP service chain. If there are multiple services per
vectoring point, they are processed in the specified order.

icap_class classname servicename...

Example:
icap_class class_1 service_1 service_2
icap class class_2 service_1 service_3
        
</PRE>
</P>
<DT><B>icap_access</B><DD><P>
<PRE>
Default: none

Redirects a request through an ICAP service class, depending
on given acls

icap_access classname allow|deny [!]aclname...

The icap_access statements are processed in the order they appear in
this configuration file. If an access list matches, the processing stops.
For an "allow" rule, the specified class is used for the request. A "deny"
rule simply stops processing without using the class. You can also use the
special classname "None".

For backward compatibility, it is also possible to use services
directly here.

Example:
icap_access class_1 allow all

    dhparams=    File containing DH parameters for temporary/ephemeral
                 DH key exchanges

    sslflags=    Various flags modifying the use of SSL:

                    Don't request client certificates
                    immediately, but wait until acl processing
                    requires a certificate (not yet implemented)
                 NO_DEFAULT_CA
                    Don't use the default CA lists built in
                    to OpenSSL
                 NO_SESSION_REUSE
                    Don't allow for session reuse. Each connection
                    will result in a new SSL session.
                 VERIFY_CRL
                    Verify CRL lists when accepting client
                    certificates
                 VERIFY_CRL_ALL
                    Verify CRL lists for all certificates in the
                    client certificate chain

    sslcontext=  SSL session ID context identifier.

    accelAccelerator mode. Also set implicit by the other
    accelerator directives

    vhostAccelerator mode using Host header for virtual
    domain support

    vportAccelerator with IP based virtual host support

     sslversion=1|2|3|4
     sslcipher=...
     ssloptions=...
     front-end-https[=on|auto]


     use 'basetime=n' to specify a base amount to
     be subtracted from round trip times of parents.
     It is subtracted before division by weight in calculating
     which parent to fectch from. If the rtt is less than the
     base time the rtt is set to a minimal value.

     use 'background-ping' to only send ICP queries to this
     neighbor infrequently. This is used to keep the neighbor
     round trip time updated and is usually used in
     conjunction with weighted-round-robin.

     use 'weighted-round-robin' to define a set of parents
     which should be used in a round-robin fashion with the
     frequency of each parent being based on the round trip
     time. Closer parents are used more often.
     Usually used for background-ping parents.

     use 'carp' to define a set of parents which should
     be used as a CARP array. The requests will be
     distributed among the parents based on the CARP load
     balancing hash function based on their weigth.

     use 'htcp-oldsquid' to send HTCP to old Squid versions

     'originserver' causes this parent peer to be contacted as
     a origin server. Meant to be used in accelerator setups.

     use 'name=xxx' if you have multiple peers on the same
     host but different ports. This name can be used to
     differentiate the peers in cache_peer_access and similar
     directives.

     use 'forceddomain=name' to forcibly set the Host header
     of requests forwarded to this peer. Useful in accelerator
     setups where the server (peer) expects a certain domain
     name and using redirectors to feed this domainname
     is not feasible.

     use 'ssl' to indicate connections to this peer should
     bs SSL/TLS encrypted.

     use 'sslcert=/path/to/ssl/certificate' to specify a client
     SSL certificate to use when connecting to this peer.

     use 'sslkey=/path/to/ssl/key' to specify the private SSL
     key corresponding to sslcert above. If 'sslkey' is not
     specified 'sslcert' is assumed to reference a
     combined file containing both the certificate and the key.

     use sslversion=1|2|3|4 to specify the SSL version to use
     when connecting to this peer
        1 = automatic (default)
        2 = SSL v2 only
        3 = SSL v3 only
        4 = TLS v1 only

     use sslcipher=... to specify the list of valid SSL chipers
     to use when connecting to this peer

     use ssloptions=... to specify various SSL engine options:
        NO_SSLv2  Disallow the use of SSLv2
        NO_SSLv3  Disallow the use of SSLv3
        NO_TLSv1  Disallow the use of TLSv1
     See src/ssl_support.c or the OpenSSL documentation for
     a more complete list.

     use cafile=... to specify a file containing additional
     CA certificates to use when verifying the peer certificate

     use capath=... to specify a directory containing additional
     CA certificates to use when verifying the peer certificate

     use sslflags=... to specify various flags modifying the
     SSL implementation:
        DONT_VERIFY_PEER
            Accept certificates even if they fail to
            verify.
        NO_DEFAULT_CA
            Don't use the default CA list built in
            to OpenSSL.
        DONT_VERIFY_DOMAIN
            Don't verify the peer certificate
            matches the server name

     use sslname= to specify the peer name as advertised
     in it's certificate. Used for verifying the correctness
     of the received peer certificate. If not specified the
     peer hostname will be used.

     use front-end-https to enable the "Front-End-Https: On"
     header needed when using Squid as a SSL frontend infront
     of Microsoft OWA. See MS KB document Q307347 for details
     on this header. If set to auto the header will
     only be added if the request is forwarded as a https://
     URL.

    Will log to the specified file using the specified format (which
    must be defined in a logformat directive) those entries which match
    ALL the acl's specified (which must be defined in acl clauses).
    If no acl is specified, all requests will be logged to this file.

    To disable logging of a request use the filepath "none", in which case
    a logformat name should not be specified.

    To log the request via syslog specify a filepath of "syslog":

    access_log syslog[:facility|priority] [format [acl1 [acl2 ....]]]
    where facility could be any of:
        LOG_AUTHPRIV, LOG_DAEMON, LOG_LOCAL0 .. LOG_LOCAL7 or LOG_USER.

<P>Removed NTLM options:
<PRE>
    "max_challenge_reuses" number
    The maximum number of times a challenge given by a ntlm authentication

    to replay attacks on your network. 0 (the default) means use the
    challenge is used only once. See also the max_ntlm_challenge_lifetime
    directive if enabling challenge reuses.
    auth_param ntlm max_challenge_reuses 0

    "max_challenge_lifetime" timespan
    The maximum time period a ntlm challenge is reused over. The
    actual period will be the minimum of this time AND the number of
    reused challenges.
    auth_param ntlm max_challenge_lifetime 2 minutes

    "use_ntlm_negotiate" on|off
    Enables support for NTLM NEGOTIATE packet exchanges with the helper.
    The configured ntlm authenticator must be able to handle NTLM
    NEGOTIATE packet. See the authenticator programs documentation if
    unsure. ntlm_auth from Samba-3.0.2 or later supports the use of this
    option.
    The NEGOTIATE packet is required to support NTLMv2 and a
    number of other negotiable NTLMSSP options, and also makes it
    more likely the negotiation is successful. Enabling this parameter
    will also solve problems encountered when NT domain policies
    restrict users to access only certain workstations. When this is off,
    all users must be allowed to log on the proxy servers too, or they'll
    get "invalid workstation" errors - and access denied - when trying to
    use Squid's services.
    Use of ntlm NEGOTIATE is incompatible with challenge reuse, so
    enabling this parameter will OVERRIDE the max_challenge_reuses and
    max_challenge_lifetime parameters and set them to 0.

    "keep_alive" on|off
    If you experience problems with PUT/POST requests when using the

    ignore-no-cache ignores any ``Pragma: no-cache'' and
    ``Cache-control: no-cache'' headers received from a server.
    The HTTP RFC never allows the use of this (Pragma) header
    from a server, only a client, though plenty of servers
    send it anyway.

    ignore-no-store ignores any ``Cache-control: no-store''
    headers received from a server. Doing this VIOLATES
    the HTTP standard. Enabling this feature could make you
    liable for problems which it causes.

    ignore-private ignores any ``Cache-control: private''
    headers received from a server. Doing this VIOLATES
    the HTTP standard. Enabling this feature could make you
    liable for problems which it causes.

    ignore-auth caches responses to requests with authorization,
    irrespective of ``Cache-control'' headers received from
    a server. Doing this VIOLATES the HTTP standard. Enabling
    this feature could make you liable for problems which
    it causes.

    refresh-ims causes squid to contact the origin server
    when a client issues an If-Modified-Since request. This
    ensures that the client will receive an updated version
    if one is available.
