G'day guys and gals,

If you haven't noticed already, the first beta release of what will 
become barnyard2-1.10 was tagged the other day on github. This was a 
significant milestone that was only enabled by the OISF team and their 
generous contributions. Thanks again!

I was going to push this first beta a week ago but have spent the past 
few days cleaning up the documentation, some old and pesky bugs and even 
added a small utility.

So what are the notable includes/updates from the 1.9 release:
   * A new output plugin for communication with SnortSam instances.
   * Upgraded unified2 handling to latest unified2 standard [1].
   * Improved handling of Sguil agent registration timeouts. Thanks to 
Victor Julien.

Some other worthy mentions from the previous stable release include:
   * Fixed signature loading issue that resulted in a rogue space being 
appended to messages.
   * Fixed compile issue with IPv6 enabled.
   * Fixed compile issue with TCL and PostgreSQL combinations.
   * Added support for new DLT_IPV4 and DLT_IPV6 link types introduced 
with Snort's new DAQ library.

The old project pages are still being reworked with the server change, 
so if you want to try it out you will need to become a little familiar 
with github (it'll be worth it).

So please go forth, download [2], compile, use and abuse. Be sure to 
send any feedback good or otherwise back to us.
