> The reason for this change is two fold.  The first reason for this is to better serve the snort community by pre-compiling the "SO" rules so they are easier to use on the various platforms utilized by the snort community and the VRT subscribers. Additionally due to contract terms with some 3rd party research organizations a small number of VRT certified rules will now only be delivered as binaries. This change is limited to shared object rules. Non-SO rules will not be affected.

If none of the above combinations work on your platform please send a note to the snort-sigs mailing list so we can gage the need for additional platforms and distributions to be added to the list of supported platforms.
