Hi Amos

>       Hi Massimo, why cc'ing squid-users? nothing this list can do about 

Package update : I know, it is a topic for debian users and package 
maintainer, so strictly speaking it is off-topic.

youtube video, disabling QUIC : I think it will be of general interest, I 
switch to a new thread for it.

Two subjects in one Email, excuse me !

Many thanks, Sala

Anyhow, the Debian 3.4.8-6 package has already been patched to contain 
the important fixes from later upstream 3.4 releases.

(that covers your #1 and #2 items)

All it lacks is the minor changes which AFAIK do not meet the criteria 
required for acceptance into the Debian stable distro.

If you need custom build with other features (such as HTTPS support), 
you are better off building the more up to date 3.5 version available 
from Stretch/Testing repository.

As for #3, the Alternate-Protocol header patch is just automating these 
squid.conf settings, which you can use explicitly in any Squid version:

  acl AP rep_header_regex Alternate-Protocol .
  reply_header_access deny AP
