The Squid HTTP Proxy team is very pleased to announce the availability
of the Squid-4.16 release!

This release is a bug fix release resolving several issues found in
the prior Squid releases.

The major changes to be aware of since 4.15:

 * Regression Fix: --with-valgrind-debug build

Squid-4.15 changes caused a build failure linking with valgrind
memory tracking tool. This release fixes that to allow memory
leak tracing again.

 * Bug 4528: ICAP transactions quit on async DNS lookups

Squid has never reliably been able to resolve hostnames configured
for ICAP services. They might work most of the time when added to
/etc/hosts, but not always - and would rarely work if relying on
remote DNS servers.

This release adds full support for DNS remote resolution of
service names in icap_service directive. Regardless of where the
hostname is resolved from it can now be expected to resolve and
also properly obey DNS TTL expiry for IP address changes.

 * Bug 5128: Translation: Fix '% i' typo in es/ERR_FORWARDING_DENIED

Spanish translation of the ERR_FORWARDING_DENIED template have
for some time omitted the URL which was having issues being fetched.
The template published with this release and current squid-langpack
downloads will now display the URL identically to other error pages.

  All users of Squid are encouraged to upgrade as soon as possible.
