  Hi Snorters,

I'm happy to announce a new release of the GPL'ed Snort IDMEF plugin
1.2.5alpha for Snort 2.2.0.

IDMEF is the Intrusion Detection Exchange Message Format which is XML
based and developed by the IETF working group IDWG. It's current status
is "Draft".

Snort IDMEF enables Snort to generate IDMEF based messages and store
them either in a flat file or distribute them via TCP sockets.

The changes in this version are very small:

- spo_idmef.c:
-- made SetupFacility more fault tolerant: now checks for valid/missing
- packaged for snort 2.2.0

- Snort 2.2.0 source http://www.snort.org
- libidmef http://sourceforge.net/projects/libidmef
- libxml2 http://xmlsoft.org/
- snort-idmef-plugin ;) http://sourceforge.net/projects/snort-idmef

On the project's homepage you'll find some mailinglists for issues
related to the snort-idmef-plugin.

Feedback is always welcomed!

Happy snort'ing,
