One of you wrote recently to ask about the status of the open source Network Security Monitoring suite called Sguil. You noticed the last release of Sguil (0.6.1) occurred in February 2006. I can assure you Sguil is not dead. In fact, just last week I wrote an article for a new BSD magazine about installing the sensor and server components of Sguil 0.7.0 (from CVS on FreeBSD 7.0.
To keep up with development read the sguil-devel mailing list and visit #snort-gui on irc.freenode.net.
I expect to see Sguil 0.7.0 released before 13 February 2008 to avoid hitting the two year mark.
