Snort has been posted!

As noted earlier today in the "release notes" post, we've just released Snort, as well as a new version of DAQ.

This release introduces a number of bug fixes, as well as introducing unicode, "zlib deflated", and "raw compress" data decoding to the http_inspect preprocessor and the file_data keyword.

Snort is available immediately from the Snort download site.

To make installation easier for our users, you simply need to compile Snort with
./configure --enable-sourcefire

We'll be working with our community documentation writers in order to update the documentation to reflect this information.
