Suricata 4.1 EOL update: support extended

Just a quick note that we’re planning to keep the 4.1 branch supported until at least the end of the year. We understand that lots of organizations are going through various levels of disruption currently.

Normally we’d announce the EOL date for 4.1 right about now, but we understand that upgrades like this may not be a priority in your organization, or that the risk of causing service disruptions is considered too high in the current situation.

As the end of 2020 nears we’ll provide another update on our 4.1 plans.

5.0, our current stable branch, will naturally be supported as well.

Work on the upcoming 6.0 is progressing nicely. The Suricata Dev team is already a virtual team with most of us routinely working from home, so disruption for us has so far been minimal.

Stay healthy!
