How to configure Squid to send back a HTTP 1.1 response for a HTTP 1.1 request?

I see that if a browser sends a HTTP 1.1 request, squid sends back a HTTP 1.0 response back even though the original web server that serves the content sends back a HTTP 1.1 response.

Ticking the "Use HTTP 1.1" and "Use HTTP 1.1 through proxies" advanced settings under IE sometimes fixes related problems such as Bad Gateway and Zero Error replies from Squid

That's because Squid doesn't fully implement HTTP 1.1.

Looking around for Squid's HTTP/1.1 status leads to http://wiki.squid-cache.org/Features/HTTP11 and http://wiki.squid-cache.org/Http11Checklist ; the blog http://squidproxy.wordpress.com/ is also worth checking out. The squid3 roadmap mentions further HTTP/1.1 support for 3.2
