This document outlines future Squid-2 features.
OBSOLETE status for Squid-2.7 series will occur with the release of Squid-3.2
DEPRECATED status for Squid-2.7 was achieved in Aug 2011.
UPDATE: As of May 2008 the active Squid developers are now concentrating all new features and developments at Squid-3. If Squid-3 does not meet your requirements, please notify squid-dev of the missing requirements which need to be ported from Squid-2. Some are already known and listed on the Roadmap for Squid-3
These aims consist of the wishlist outstanding for 2.x series. Some of these items have been implemented in the 3.x series.
The remaining Squid-2 plans are now down to polish and performance polishing and still planned for implementation later in the Squid-3 RoadMap.
