Dear Snort users,

We are proud to announce the availability of a new redBorder IPS 
Community Release (2.2.24). This new release has been possible due to 
the combined effort of our sponsors and clients. As always we would like 
to get the opportunity to thank other Open Source projects that are part 
of our solution: Snort, pf_ring, Snorby, Chef, CentOS, …

A brief summary of new features:


* Upgrade to just released Snort 2.9.4 and DAQ 2.0
* Kernel crash under specific traffic conditions solved (critical upgrade)
* GeoIP based protection (as a enhancement to Reputation Preprocessor)
* Barnyard updated to 2.1.11


* General scalability enhancements improving the usability with multiple 
* Inclusion of TokuDB storage engine as part of MySQL. De warned this 
software has its own licensing conditions, not being Open Source. Either 
way, it is free to use up to 50GB without any support nor 
responsibility. Look into their site for more details (www.tokutek.com)
* Support for SCADA and Reputation Preprocessors
* GeoIP Reputation Management
* Customizable Dashboard System
* Greatly enhanced filtering system
* IPMI information gathering
* Google Maps integration
* Improved reports
* Many bugfixes

The GeoIP enhancement patch has been sent to Sourcefire and hope it will 
be included in default Snort at some time (please, this is just our 
hope, not a statement by Sourcefire). You can access the patch directly 
into our Github repository (www.github.com/redBorder) under GPLv2 license.

As always, the software is available to registered users for free at 
www.redborder.net under AGPLv3 license.
