> 126.96.36.199 beta has been released!
> Join us as we welcome Snort 188.8.131.52 to the family, in beta form!
> Right of the bat, you will notice that we are going from 184.108.40.206 to
> 220.127.116.11, skipping over 18.104.22.168. Just to clarify, 22.214.171.124 was an
> internal only release. We decided not to ship it to the public because
> timing of back to back 2.9.10 and 2.9.11 releases, and thought it
> would be better for the community to just release one instead of two.
> All 2.9.10 features and fixes are in 2.9.11, so you're not missing
> anything, just making it easier on the community.
> We will be modifying the EOL slightly, as we are going to be keeping
> versions around a little longer. We aren't quite sure what this will
> look like yet, but rest assured we will be updating the blog when we do.
> Here's some release notes:
> * New additions
> o Changes to eliminate Snort restart when there are changes to
> the memory allocated for preprocessors, by releasing unused or
> least recently used memory when needed.
