Known issues & missing features

We have made significant progress towards reaching our first full
(non-beta) release of Suricata.  Your feedback is always important to us
and we appreciate your time and effort. As always, we are doing our best
to make you aware of continuing development and items within the engine
that are not yet complete.  With this in mind, please notice the list we
have included of known items we are working on.

- Inconsistent time stamps in http log file due to handling & updating
of the http state.
- DCE/RPC over udp is not currently supported.
- Engine does not work properly on big endian platforms.
- Time based stats are not calculated correctly.
- Due to timing issues, matches in the reassembled stream sometimes
seemingly appear too early in the stream
