Hi there

According to squid-cache.org bearer authentication is nearly completed. Amos attached a patch in a mailing list entry back in 2014 [2]. 

What’s the state of this project? Will this feature become released eventually or became it rather stale? 

Background: I’m playing around with Squid and JWT token [3] based authentication. It looks like the bearer authentication interface is exactly what I’m looking for.
