It seems a bit late to announce both releases. After a long development process and beta testing, Sguil 0.7.0 has finally been released. It does not take long for modsec2sguil to work with the latest release as well. I have not upgraded my Sguil installation to 0.70 yet, but it won’t take a long time for me to do that because I plan to upgrade the hard disk as well, so every thing will be fresh installation, including the OS - FreeBSD 7.0.
In my opinion, every network analysts should get familiar with these 2 tools, especially Wireshark. In this new version, Wireshark team has fixed few security vulnerabilities, and there is an experimental package for Mac OSX Intel as well.
Other than these releases, I have done a small upgrade from FreeBSD 6.2R to FreeBSD 6.3R recently, which I refer to here. This is only applicable if you are running GENERIC FreeBSD kernel.
