As noted before when we End-Of-Life'd 126.96.36.199 Shared Object rules, 188.8.131.52 rules have now reached EOL and will no longer be released. People using 184.108.40.206 should update to the newest version of Snort and Shared Object rules at 220.127.116.11.
Towards the end of March, 18.104.22.168 will also be EOL, so it's encouraged that planning begin for the movement off of that patch level if anyone is still on it.
The Shared Object rule builds for 22.214.171.124 are unaffected, however, as a reminder, support for 126.96.36.199 will end at the release of Snort 2.9.1 (+90 days), so those of you on 188.8.131.52 are encouraged to start upgrading.
