Hello, tried contacting varnish contact person, but couldn't find any ways to do so - thus the mailing list. Sorry if I'm causing others any inconvenience ;-)

Just a heads up for those using the Ubuntu installation guide: it installs an outdated varnish:
root at xen7:/etc/apache2# varnishd -Vvarnishd (varnish-1.0.3)Copyright (c) 2006 Linpro AS / Verdens Gang ASroot at xen7:/etc/apache2#
Here's what I did (rather than re-compliing from source to get 2.1.4 (am getting 2.1.2 on Ubuntu Hardy)
>From http://repo.varnish-cache.org/debian/dists/hardy/varnish-2.1/binary-amd64/:      
wget http://repo.varnish-cache.org/debian/dists/hardy/varnish-2.1/binary-amd64/varnish_2.1.2-1~hardy1_amd64.deb
2.To resolve dependency issues: apt-get install libvarnish1
dpkg -i varnish_2.1.2-1~hardy1_amd64.deb

After installation:
root at xen7:/home/bsg/download# varnishd -Vvarnishd (varnish-2.1.2 SVN )Copyright (c) 2006-2009 Linpro AS / Verdens Gang ASroot at xen7:/home/bsg/download#  
Hope this helps :-)

Keep up the great work guys!
