Happy New Varnish Year!

A quick news-letter from your varnish-coder, on the occation of the
new year:


1. The 3rd Varnish User Group meeting (VUG3)
--------------------------------------------

VUG3 will take place in Amsterdam on February 14 & 15 2010

Tom-Tom has kindly offered to host the meeting. If you arrive late
and say "I couldn't find it", you will be mocked.

Sign up at:
http://varnish-cache.org/trac/wiki/VUG3

Ask for wiki bit in the IRC channel if you don't have one.

There are only 9 seats left at this point.


2. Varnish 3.0 boiling in the pot
---------------------------------

I won't bore you with how I lost my December, but I'm be working
furiously on finishing Varnish 3.0 so we can tell you all about it
at the VUG3.

Some of you spotted a gzip library being committed during X-mas,
you know what that means.


3. Varnish Moral Licenses
-------------------------

Funding looks good. A big THANKYOU to the companies which have
taken out a license.

After five years (see below) I have finally adjusted my hourly rate
to the inflation. Next thing you know I will update my home-page too.

Follow the status of the Varnish Moral License here:

Also a big thanks for the X-mas gifts from my Amazon wishlist:

Should I mention my birthday is jan 20 ? Nahhh... :-)


4. Who put 545k websites on Varnish in December ?
-------------------------------------------------

"Varnish gained 545k hostnames":
http://news.netcraft.com/archives/2010/12/01/december-2010-web-server-survey.html

I'd love to hear the story behind that, drop me an email if
you know it.


5. Varnish is five years old about now
--------------------------------------

Not that any code had been written at that point but I spent quality
time with blank paper and a sharp pencils during the first months
of 2006 and I'm pleased to say that I had absolutely no idea how
far reaching those doodles would become.

We'll raise a glass to the occasion in Amsterdam.


In the meantime: May your hitrate be good,

Poul-Henning
