When we are happy with it. Hopefully before the summer but no promise.

The original plan was to have it released long ago, but as always there is
delays.

There is some patches floating around, but it can not be compared with the
ease of using Squid-3.0. If you can run the OWA server in https:// mode
then the SSL update from http://devel.squid-cache.org/ may help. The main
feature missing with the SSL update is the originserver cache_peer option.

As long as you do not depend on Squid-3.0.PRE for production use I see no
problem with trying to use Squid-3.0.PRE until 3.0.STABLE is ready.
