2015-06-01: added CookiePolicy
2009-01-12 The wiki is now fully IPv6 active. The main Squid website is also edging closer with the first full IPv6 mirror in Europe http://www.eu.squid-cache.org .
2008-12-08 The Squid Wiki is now also reachable using IPv6, at the URL http://eu6.squid-cache.org/, running Squid 3.1.0 as a front-end reverse proxy. An IPv6 record will be added within a few weeks for the main URL. If you run a v6-enabled client, please try using the test URL and report any issues to FrancescoChemolli
2009-01-08 Added ThirdPartyModules registry. All developers of squid add-ons (authenticators, redirectors, external authorization modules, ICAP and eCAP adapters) are encouraged to register their work there.
