Good afternoon, snorters!

The Snort Team is proud to officially release Snort v2.1.2. This is a
bugfix release, and so it is recommended that users upgrade to this
new release.

Fixes highlighted for this release are as follows:

* Fixed conversation parsing faults so users can operate this
* Detect non-rfc standard chunk encodings (thanks, H.D. Moore
  <hdm at ...2451...>)
* Detect abnormal HTTP requests with newlines, spaces, etc. before the
  request method (thanks, Kanatoko <anvil at ...2452...>).
* Fix invalid ptr reference that occurred on Fedora.  This should also
  help reduce any false positive 'U Decoding' alerts.  (thanks, Owen
  Crow <Owen_Crow at ...2453...>)
* Fix possible condition where request pipeline URL gets inspected,
  but the rest of a packet doesn't.
* Fix negative stats output on snort exit or SIGUSR1.  (thanks, Owen
  Crow <Owen_Crow at ...2453...> and others)

Thanks to the community for your continued input and comments, as
always, it is much appreciated!

Happy Snorting,
The Snort Team
