Snort EOL dates have been updated.

With our recent release of Snort 2.9.9.0, as I stated in a previous blog post, this marks the beginning of the "end of life" for Snort 2.9.7.6.

We've updated the Snort EOL page today which marks the EOL for 2.9.7.6 (2017-03-14).

If you are interested on our "LTS" or Long Term Support version of Snort (2.9.8.3), I suggest you plan your migrations now.

2.9.8.3 will be supported until the next major release of Snort after 2.9.9.0.

If you want the newest features of the ruleset and Snort, we suggest you upgrade to 2.9.9.0, which is our current release.  For more on the features of Snort 2.9.9.0, please read out blog post.

Please remember, as per my previous blog post, 2.9.9.0's ruleset will not be backwards compatible to Snort 2.9.8.3 once the newer keywords are used.
