We're pleased to announce *Suricata 4.1.5*. This release fixes a number
of issues found in the 4.1 branch. Some of the issues are security
issues, so upgrading is highly recommended.

This release also adds VXLAN support, contributed by Henrik Lund
Kramshoej. This was accepted into the stable branch to support Suricata
deployment in AWS. Next GeoIP2 support was contributed by Bill Meeks.
This was added to stable as GeoIP1 is end of life and the databases are
no longer updated.
