Snort is now available on snort.org, at

2.9.0 RC & later packages are signed with a new PGP key
(that is signed with the previous key).

Snort addresses the following:

[*] Improvements
   * The normalization perprocessor now has options to configure packet
     trimming and TOS clearing. Packets injected by the preprocessor
     will now appear in Snort's packet statistics. TCP timestamps are
     now only normalized if a session is established without timestamp
     negotiation.  See ChangeLog and README.normalize for more details.

   * Added a "config vlan_agnostic" setting that globally disables
     Stream's use of vlan tags in session tracking.

   * Fixed some issues in the packet decoder, including one where IPv6
     fragments were being decoded incorrectly.

   * Updated the default snort.conf to enable unlimited decompression of
     gzipped HTTP server responses.

Please see the Release Notes and ChangeLog for more details.
