Varnish 2.0.5 has just been released.  This release contains multiple
changes, amongst them:

* Performance improvements, particularly on Linux.

* Implement support for HTTP continuation lines

* Handle illegal responses from the backend better by serving a 503 page
  rather than panic-ing

* Add backtrace to assertion errors.  This requires Varnish to be
  installed unstripped

* Consume less memory when processing ESI

* Better standards compliance with If-None-Match support and emitting
  more headers on 304 responses

* Add a FetchError log tag which makes it easier to understand why a
  backend fetch failed.
