This is the official release announcement for IPFire 2.19 – Core Update 103.
This update contains various stability fixes and updates a number a packages
under the hood.

Web Proxy Improvements

The web proxy squid has been updated to the 3.5 series and various improvements
for stability and performance were made.

On machines with slow harddisks or on installations with very large caches it
was likely to happen that the cache index got corrupted when the proxy was shut
down. This resulted in an unstable web proxy after the next start.

The shutdown routine was improved so that a cache index corruption is now very
unlikely. Additionally we have means installed that allow us to detect if the
cache index was corrupted and if so have it automatically rebuilt at the next
start. This update will delete the presumably corrupted index on all
installations and start a rebuild of the index, which could result in slow
operation of the proxy for a short time after installing the update.
