Snort 2.9.11.0 end of life warning

SNORTⓇ subscribers, as many of you may have noticed, we've been keeping Snort version releases around a lot longer over the past couple of years.

We are currently working on revising our end of life (EOL) policy to take into account a mix of time and market share. Essentially, we will begin to shut down versions of Snort that make up less than 10 percent of our downloads or have been around for five years, whichever comes first. More details will be released about this soon.
In the meantime, we've noticed that there has been an average of fewer than 2,000 downloads of version 2.9.11.0 per week. So, in order to reduce the number of builds we need to perform every release, we're going to be sunsetting 2.9.11.0. We encourage everyone to upgrade to the latest release: 2.9.12.0.

This serves as the 90-day notice until EOL, which should occur on or about Jan. 9, 2019.
