I've had a look at Varnish Cache platform support after this.

Debian wheezy has 3.0.2, (stable) jessie has 4.0.2 and (testing)
stretch has 4.1.0. Debian will still have a credible alternative.
This is should credited to Stig's excellent work.

Ubuntu does 3.0 in precise 12.04 and trusty 14.04. xenial (16.06/next
LTS) has 4.1.0. No stable/LTS alternative exists right now. Build from

RHEL7/el7: nothing in base system. epel7 has 4.0.3-3.
Ingvar has made this happen, and I understand there is work
underway getting 4.1.0 in here.

RHEL6/el6:  Nothing in base system. epel6 has 2.1.5-5.
No stable alternative will exist. Build from source or upgrade to el7.

With my VS hat on: Varnish Plus customers using community Varnish Cache
should contact support to find alternatives.
