[*] New Additions
   * Added the ability to use shared memory (linux only) for the
     experimental IP reputation preprocessor. See README.reputation
     for details.

   * Added a Unix control socket (linux only), used to issue commands
     to running Snort processes. Currently, it is only used by the IP
     Reputation preprocessor for communication regarding the shared
     memory.  See the Snort Manual and the tools/control directory for
     more details.

[*] Improvements
   * Improved HTTP Inspect and rule processing for both raw compress
     and zlib deflated data. Expanded coverage of normalization for
     Unicode encoded data.

   * Updated HTTP Inspect PAF support to better handle HTTP 1.1

Please see the Release Notes and ChangeLog for more details.
