I know all about how subscription vs. registered works, my point was
that the previous poster said that there have been two releases since
the 16th and there hasn't been, not to the general public anyway. I also
use oinkmaster and I frequently see updates to the bleeding set but only
once from snort.org for either the vrt or community rule sets, back near
the 16th. I just checked the output of my update (which I have
automatically done at 12:30 every morning) and saw no updates for vrt or
community but oinkmaster did function properly, it processed the rule
sets but just did not find anything had changed (Just to be sure I ran
the update script by hand to watch for error messages that might not
have made it into the logs and it worked flawlessly, downloaded all the
files, unpacked them and checked for changes, found none and exited).

Have you registered on the Snort site?
If not, then you won't get updates until the next Snort release.
http://www.snort.org/rules/
   Subscribers receive real-time rules updates as they are available -
Learn more about subscription highlights here 
   Registered users can access rule updates 5 days after release to
subscription users. 
   Unregistered users receive a static ruleset at the time of each major
Snort Release 

I am registered, and I see some updated rules files from my Oinkmaster
update done yesterday.

I just downloaded the latest ruleset from
http://www.snort.org/pub-bin/oinkmaster.cgi/<oinkmaster
code>/snortrules-snapshot-2.3.tar.gz and I found that all the included
files were dated 3/16 none were any later. I did see a see an email from
the 28th about a "VRT Certified Rules Update" but nothing so far.

There has been two set of rules since then for registered and
subscribers users.
