It is in the changelog:

* Snort no longer depends on libnet and uses libdnet instead.

Also libdnet is going to be called libdumbnet in most Linux package 
based repositories. However it is going to install the libraries under 
different names so it still can't find it when being installed. Just 
pull the source and compile/install prior to configure/make with Snort 
(or just make the appropriate symlinks):


Don't forget to grab daq from snort.org and compile/install it first, 
that had me banging my head against the wall for like 10 minutes trying 
to figure out what was goin on when I was playing with the beta. 2.9.0 
is super awesome though for many many reasons and everyone should 
upgrade happily.
