Subject: [Snort-users] Snort 3.0 Alpha 1 b130 Now Available

The Snort team is happy to announce the first alpha release of Snort 3.0, which includes the
following features:

* Support for multiple packet processing threads
* Use of a shared configuration and attribute table across different threads
* A simple, scriptable configuration with strict grammar
* Updates to make key components plugable
* Auto-detection of services for port-less configuration
* Support sticky buffers in rules
* Auto-generation of reference documentation
* Improved support for cross platform building/deployment

The code can be obtained from snort.org under http://www.snort.org/downloads/snortplus<http://www.snort.org/downloads/snortplus/>.
The code can also be obtained via a github repository git://github.com/snortadmin/snort3.git.

Snort 3.0 is a complete overhaul of Snort 2.x, and the focus has been on the framework,
configuration and grammar, and it is initially based from an early build of Snort 2.9.6
with just HTTP Inspect and FTP.  Information about Snort 3.0 can be found on the
website under http://www.snort.org/snort3.

Look for blogs with additional information, how to guides, etc as well as updates to the
Alpha as we hear about issues, requests for changes and improvements, and roll out
additional dynamic inspectors, bringing the functionality up to more recent Snort versions
over the next few weeks and months.

We're looking forward to hearing all of your feedback, positive and negative!

Happy Snorting!
