The BASE project team and I are proud to announce the availability of  
our newest release of
the Basic Analysis and Security Engine (BASE) project.  It is now  
from http://sourceforge.net/projects/secureideas

This release comes after two months of enormous amounts of effort.   
The team, and users have
fixed more bugs and implemented more features then any of our other  
releases to date!  The
CHANGELOG has 43 entries for this release alone.  If you are using  
PostgreSQL, you will love
this new release as a lot of work was put into supporting that DB  
better.  We also now support the
107 version of the schema from Snort and FLoP.  Archiving and other  
actions have also had a
number of annoying bugs fixed.  Searching has also been a focus since  
the last release.
The full CHANGELOG is below.

We would also like to welcome our new team members and thank the  
departed ones for all of
their hard work.  And of course we would like to thank everyone who  
nominated us in the
Sourceforge Community Choice Awards ( http://sourceforge.net/awards/ 
cca/ ),
don't forget to vote for us. ;-)

Thanks again
Kevin Johnson and the BASE project team
