With our recent release of Snort 18.104.22.168, as I stated in a previous blog post, this marks the beginning of the "end of life" for Snort 22.214.171.124.
We've updated the Snort EOL page today which marks the EOL for 126.96.36.199 (2017-03-14).
If you are interested on our "LTS" or Long Term Support version of Snort (188.8.131.52), I suggest you plan your migrations now.
184.108.40.206 will be supported until the next major release of Snort after 220.127.116.11.
If you want the newest features of the ruleset and Snort, we suggest you upgrade to 18.104.22.168, which is our current release. For more on the features of Snort 22.214.171.124, please read out blog post.
Please remember, as per my previous blog post, 126.96.36.199's ruleset will not be backwards compatible to Snort 188.8.131.52 once the newer keywords are used.
