With today's release of the VRT Rule pack, the EOL of 18.104.22.168 support for Shared Object rules is also taking place. As a result of the changes in the Shared Object rule API earlier in the 2.9.0.x build tree, it has become necessary to remove 22.214.171.124 from the precompiled Shared Object builds.
Snort 126.96.36.199, which has also been released today, will now be supported with the VRT Shared Object rules, and anyone running 188.8.131.52, should go ahead and move to the current patch level of the 2.9.0.x tree: 184.108.40.206.
The Shared Object rule builds for 220.127.116.11 are unaffected, however, as a reminder, support for 18.104.22.168 will end at the release of Snort 2.9.1 (+90 days), so those of you on 22.214.171.124 are encouraged to start upgrading.
