I'd suggest posting this on snort-users, not snort-sigs.... snort-sigs is a
mailing list for signature development.
That said, upgrading should consist of:
1) back up your snort.conf
2) download, unpack the snort tarball from snort.org
3) give the doc/README and doc/NEWS files a quick skim. (There's
nothing new in them in this release, but always a good idea to check)
4) compile and install the snort tarball (see the doc/INSTALL file)
5) merge your HOME_NET variables, etc from your old snort.conf
into the new snort.conf.
