Snort, a minor bug fix, has just been posted to the Snort.org website.
The release notes for this release contain the following:

  • Fixed an issue where Snort would sometimes stop processing traffic in a
    persistent HTTP 1.1 connection with a UTF-32 encoded response followed by
    a UTF-16 encoded response.
You may grab the newest release of Snort here: http://www.snort.org/snort-downloads

To make installation easier for our users, you simply need to compile Snort with
./configure --enable-sourcefire

We'll be working with our community documentation writers in order to update the documentation to reflect this information.
