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