Fine, go for snort-2.3.2, it is most updated version.
Regarding your snort.conf file, you can find a snort.conf file
at the etc/ of snort source, you better replace ur snort.conf
with this one.

Also, the latest snort.conf needs updated classification.conf and many
such things, so it is better to copy the etc/ and rules/ directory from the
source to your snort working directory.
