New features

- Added an SSH application layer module, improving performance and accuracy
- Added two new SSH rule keywords: "ssh.protoversion" and
- Added support for missing HTTP related PCRE modifiers /H, /M and /C
(bug #220)


- Fixed several TCP stream engine evasion issues found by Judy Novak
from G2, Inc.
- Improved accuracy of the http_client_body keyword
- Improved dropping of packets in IPS mode when a signature matches in
the reassembled stream or the application layer
- Improved error reporting if the engine runs out of memory in the
initialization stage
- Fixed a reported segv in the HTTP method detection keyword (bug #231)
- Several smaller issues were fixed

Because of the TCP evasions that are fixed upgrading is highly recommended.
