We have taken many of the feature requests gathered over the past  
several weeks and rolled out several new builds of Aanval which  
include these requests and bug fixes. Thanks.

Notable new features are the snort auto-trimming option to help keep  
your snort database sized nicely, and the email reporting feature  
which allows for dynamic reports to be emailed to any user at any time.

The following is the build release notes:
