Great news !
What about more ESI features (ie : cookie support), backend revalidation with conditional GETs or streaming fetches (http://varnish.projects.linpro.no/wiki/PostTwoShoppingList) ?

> Objet : 2.1 plans
> a short while before Christmas, I wrote up a small document
> pointing to
> what I would like to get into 2.1 and when I'd like milestones to
> happen. This is a suggestion, I'm open to ideas and comments on both
> feature set as well as if my guesstimates for dates is completely off:
> Varnish 2.1 release plan
> The theme for Varnish 2.1 is "scalability", particularly trying to
> address the needs of sites like finn.no which has a lot of objects and
> where priming the cache takes a long time, leading to long periods of
> higher load on the backend servers.
> The main feature is persistent storage, see
> for design notes. Another important scalability feature is a new
> lockless hash algorithm which scales much better than the current
> one. Poul-Henning already has an implementation of this in the tree,
> but it's still fresh.
> Minor features which would be nice to get in are:
> * Web UI, showing pretty graphs as well as allowing easy configuration
> of a cluster of Varnish machines.
> * Expiry randomisation. This reduces the "lemmings" effect where you
> end up with a many objects with almost the same TTL (typically on
> startup) which then expire at the same time. The feature will allow
> you to set the TTL to plus/minus X %.
> * Dynamic, user-defined counters that can be read and written from VCL
> * Forced purges, where a thread walks the list of purged objects and
> removes them.
