Hey Everyone,

Snort 2.4.1 has been released and addresses a bug in TCP SACK processing 
that could result in a DoS for some text based logging methods. In 
addition, this release includes changes and fixes for several issues 
reported by the community, such as:
     * Pcap logging is now the default for Snort at startup, use
       "-K ascii"
       to revert to old behavior.
     * Change ip_proto to ip for portscan configuration.  Thanks David
       for pointing this out.
     * Added support for new OpenBSD pflog format.  Older pflog format,
       OpenBSD 3.3 and earlier is still supported.  Thanks Breno Leitao
       and Christian Reis for the patch.
     * ...
