No special version, but you can do some tuning with the refresh_pattern
settings in your squid.conf that may improve this.

Hit rates will also depend on the kind of content you are accessing - large
amounts of dynamic and/or SSL content will drive your hit rates down
because Squid can't cache this effectively (if at all).

File descriptors have nothing to do with cache hit ratios.
