The Squid HTTP Proxy team is very pleased to announce the
availability of the Squid-6.0.2 beta release!

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

The major changes to be aware of:

* Avoid excessive disk I/O in some environments

This bug could lead to excessive disk I/O in some environments.
The exact effects are difficult to predict because the operations
may be asynchronous and are guarded by additional conditions.

This release contains a temporary workaround to avoid the extra I/O

* Fix build issues highlighted by the most recent versions of
  GCC and Clang.

* Portability fixes for ESI, bundled GnuRegex, and GnuTLS

 All users of Squid-6.0.1 are encouraged to
 upgrade as time permits.

 All users of Squid-5 are encouraged to
 test this release and plan for upgrade as time permits.

See the ChangeLog for the full list of changes in this and
earlier releases.
