The Snort Engine is distributed both as source code and binaries for popular Linux distributions and Windows. It’s important to note that the The Snort Engine and Snort Rules are distributed separately.
We strongly recommend that you keep pace with the latest production release. Snort is evolving all the time and to stay current with latest detection capabilities you should always have both your Snort engine and ruleset up to date.
The purpose of this beta program is to allow people to get exposure to the technology and to use the code in real-world environments – and as an opportunity to solicit feedback on the design and user experience of the new Snort code as it evolves.
