Until we can get it out in one of the betas there is no way of telling -
though I don't have any reason to believe that it's not. There have been
a steady stream of bugfixes and changes over the last few months, so it
is receiving exposure.

It is 100% HTTP/1.1 (and if it isn't it's a bug).

Not that I aware of.

It does for me - the showstoppers seem to have been caused by problems
in various filters outside of the proxy. Needs more exposure to confirm

No-one has really checked yet to my knowledge.

Keep in mind though that the v2.0 proxy is just a proxy - there is no
caching whatsoever - this is the job of a separate independant module
called mod_tcache that is still in the works.

Dunno - but if it doesn't it's a bug.

There is only 1 version of the proxy for v2.0.

The patch for v1.3 is an HTTP/1.1 patch that was never applied to v1.3
because it was too big. (Unfortunately as much of the patch involves
rewrites of a number of routines the patch only works as a unit).
