I hadn't yet, thanks Gene.

I've only glanced over it quickly, will look closer later. The tested
Suricata version is 1.0.2. Most, if not all, of last years performance
increase work has gone into the 1.1.x branch. With increased accuracy,
performance has also much improved. Pretty much doubled in many work loads.

See for example Eric's post:
