This latest release includes SNMP alerting support, greatly improved stability, IDMEF XML alert support, new decoder for "%u encoded" HTTP traffic, limited wildcards/regex in the rules language, plus a new snort.org page.

 Hi everyone,      Snort 1.8.1 is available on our brand new web site!  Please head on over to http://www.snort.org and have a look at the new site and check out the new release.  For the impatient, you can get the latest tarball straight from http://www.snort.org/releases/snort-1.8.1-RELEASE.tar.gz.    What's new and different about this release, you ask?  Here's the scoop:  * SNMP alerting support added by Glenn Mansfield Keeni & K. Jayanthi * IDMEF output support compiled in by default now * regex keyword code repaired, limited regex/wildcards now available in the rules language * new packet counters added to Snort stats output for frags and streams * http_decode preprocessor modified to normalize %u encoding * new detection modes in frag2, Snort picks up fragmentation    attacks (teardrop, etc) much better now * repaired frag2 IP defragmenter, now highly stable and functional * tweaks made to stream4 TCP stream reassembler, now highly stable * Win32 code integrated with main Snort source now * fix for -r mode crash when no other command line options specified * fix for logfile names using ":" under win32 * tag code repaired, tags now work as expected (perhaps better even!) * spp_arpspoof repaired * stream4 alerts are now off by default * syslog alerts now support standard GEN:SID:REV data  As always, the cast of characters that made this all possible is a lengthy list of great people, and I'd like to mention just a few who were especially helpful and supportive as we got things going for this release:  Phil Wood, Fyodor Yarochkin, Brian Caswell, Bill Gercken, Roman Danyliw, Jed Pickel, and Joe McAlerney.    Enjoy!       -Marty  -- Martin Roesch roesch@sourcefire.com http://www.sourcefire.com - http://www.snort.org
