Hi everyone,

Snort v2.7.0 has been released. The software and source code is 
available at: http://snort.org/dl/

A development version of v2.7.0 was mistakenly posted over the weekend. 
   We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.  The final 
v2.7.0 is now available on the Snort site.

Snort v2.7.0 includes:

     * Target-based stream reassembly, including handling of TCP data
overlaps and anomalous TCP header flags on a per-destination basis. 11
different target-based policies are supported. See README.stream5 for
specific configuration options for operating system targets.
     * UDP session tracking
     * Option to emulate Stream4 flushing behaviour
     * Stream5 replaces BOTH Stream4 & Flow -- should disable both of
these when Stream5 is enabled.
     * Security and memory footprint improvements

Happy Snorting!
