Well, it should be noted that the "ipv6 experiment" that Marty put out in 
December was NOT a IPv6 enabled version of snort.. it only had an IPv6 
decoder and printing engine.. no IPv6 support in the rules language, or 
detection engine, so it was strictly a very limited experiment to test a 
decoder only. It would however be able to detect anomalies in IPv4 tunnels 
running through IPv6.

You can re-read the post announcing it here:

If your needs are a full ipv6 aware version of snort, sorry, no such thing 
exists (yet), but you can take the presence of a decoder test as a sign 
that ipv6 support is on its way. If you need something that can analyze 
non-encrypted IPv4 tunnels in IPv6 packets, then perhaps someone on the 
list can direct you to a copy of the test code.
