We've just pushed the set of commits for Hyperscan 4.0.1 to the master branch on <https://github.com/01org/hyperscan>.
This release fixes some minor build system (CMake) issues, and also includes a couple of small improvements.
It also includes one small update to the behaviour of the API: hs_reset_stream() and hs_reset_and_copy_stream() now behave in the same way as hs_close_stream() and allow scratch to be NULL if no matches are required. The headers and API documentation have been updated to reflect this change.
I believe I'm going to post the first message in the list :D First of
all, I would like to say thak you to all the guys that have made it
possible to open source this great technology.
Our company has been following this effort since HyperScan was part
of Sensory Networks and at that time, they still used the FPGA based
card. Then, then they opted for software only solution and from there
went into Intel's arms.
At the time there was a Snort version prepared to run HyperScan right
away. I would liketo know if that software is still around, and
specially if its going to be open source or not too.
My point is, we plan to port Snort to use HyperScan, but if there is
already a starting ground it would for sure help such effort.
Again, congratulations. Regards
Jaime Nebrera - CTO
