Just in time for the upcoming Bro Exchange, we are happy to announce a public beta of Bro 2.1. Head over to the download page to get the source.
Bro 2.1 comes with extensive support for IPv6, tunnel decapsulation, a new input framework for integrating external information in real-time into the processing, support for load-balancing in BroControl, two new experimental log output formats (DataSeries, ElasticSearch), and many more improvements and fixes throughout the code base. See the NEWS
for the preliminary release notes, and the CHANGES
for the exhaustive commit list.
Feedback is welcome and best send to the Bro mailing list
. Please note though that we do not yet recommend using this beta for production use.
