Hello Snorters!

Snort 2.3.1 has been released to address a few important issues some
users have experienced since the release of 2.3.0. A big thanks to the
community for your continued support and feedback, which is very much
appreciated. Below is the list of resolved items for this release:

* Fixed issue where the number of flowbits were too small. Thanks Marc
  Norton for the fix.

* Fixed parsing of comments at end of line in config file. In
  snort.conf, anything that follows a # on a line is considered a
  comment. Thanks Steve Sturges for the fix.

* Fixed alignment issue causing sfPortscan to crash on Solaris/HPUX.
  Thanks Andy Mullican for the fix. Thanks Senthil Prabu.S and
  Jonathan Miner for working with us on this.
