Suricata 1.0.1 released

After a 1.0 release that certainly didn’t go unnoticed, it’s now time for the first maintenance release. The main focus of this release was improving detection accuracy. A large number of false positives and false negatives were fixed. Read the full announcement here, the list of fixed issues here.

There are still a number of open issues with regard to accuracy. Those will be addressed in 1.0.2, scheduled for late August, early September. We’re working on improving CUDA, stream engine improvements and inline mode as well. Keep an eye on redmine for the open and fixed issues.

I’ll be taking some time off to recharge a bit, the last couple of months have been exhausting. Things are very exciting, so I can hardly wait to get back to improve our little Meerkat! Cheers! 🙂
