Thanks - now I know what an LTS release is.

I also tried building from source but ran into a problem.  I followed the instructions here

Made sure I had all the dependencies satisfied, then ran, configure, and make.  But the make fails with the following:

make[4]: Entering directory `/home/jstroomer/downloads/varnish/varnish-3.0.0/lib/libvarnish'

Any thoughts?
