A shortlist of the new features on the new snort.org that should make life easier for all:
• New navigation
• Improved account management
• New user forums
• Persistent link panel
• Improved VRT subscription management
What this does NOT mean is that your tools that automatically fetch snort rules tarballs will be broken... everything is still 100% functional and up in that area.
Having said all of this, please check out the new snort.org for yourself!
I extend a hearty good job to the entire snort.org team for their efforts in this, it looks and functions excellently!
