Snort 1.8.3 is now available on the Downloads page at
http://www.snort.org. This is a bugfix release with little additional
functionality, but some of the bug fixes are important: 

* Fixed potential crashbug in frag2 (IP defragmenter) under Linux 

* Fixed flexresp code, session sniping should work again and 
  be faster as well (added TCP packet caching to flexresp)

* Fixed ICMP decoder and printout routines for new ICMP header
  data structs in decode.h 

* Added -B command line switch to translate IP addresses in pcap
  files from one subnet to another for obfuscation/publication
  purposes (see the man page, implemented for the Honeynet Project). 

* Added spo_log_null to give users an option to deactivate logging
  output from the snort.conf file.
