I am pleased to announce the release of IDS Policy Manager 1.6.0 for Windows

IDS Policy Manager is designed to manage Snort IDS sensors in a distributed
environment. This is done by having the ability to take the text
configuration and rule files and allow you to modify them with an easy to
use graphical interface. With the added ability to merge new rule sets,
manage preprocessors, control output modules and scp rules to sensors, this
tool makes managing snort easy for most security professionals.

This new release of IDS Policy Manager adds support for the changes that
have recently been made with snort.org and the ruleset license. To upgrade
your ruleset, you will now need an oinkcode. If you don't have one, register
with snort.org and you can generate one for free.

Some of the additions include: 

o. Support for threshold.conf file 
o. Support for downloading rules with new format from snort.org 
o. Support for new Snort.org reference website format 
o. Bleeding Snort ruleset now downloads bleeding.rules.tar.gz from
