Package: haproxy
Version: 1.7.5-2
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

Upgrading from Jessie (haproxy 1.5.8-3+deb8u2) to Stretch (1.7.5-2)
leads us to some bad behaviour with some backends.

More specificaly, the use of a websocket was broken by the use of

A minor workaround was to disable compression for that backend.

This problem was introduced by some earlier patches between 1.5.3 and
More information on those threads :
 => Inital report with patch for 1.7.3 that later introduced other
 => Last report with fix in 1.7.8

So the new HAProxy 1.7.8 version has corrected this problem (and others, 
perhaps more important but which didn't impacted us). I have tested with the
sid package version, all is fine.

Is it planned to backport those patches in stretch / stretch-updates ?
Or should we wait for a backport ?
