No. The rule packs will still roll over, you still have the 90 days.

can you say if VRT has taken my suggestion(s) on redirecting "registered" users 
to the last "registered" user's rules snapshot file when they update their snort 
version on the bleeding edge?

for example...

when i get 2.9.0 compiled and working, my automated update routines will query 
snort for its version... they will see 2.9.0 and translate that to 2900 for the 
rules file pull... when the update script(s) contact the VRT update server with 
the OINKCODE and attempt to pull the 2900 rules sets archive, the VRT server 
will see that that OINKCODE is for a "registered" user... the last time i ran 
into this was when moving to before there was a archive for 
"registered" users... the update scripts got a "Forbidden" response from the VRT 
server instead of being redirected to the 2860 rules archive like they should be 
in a user/automation friendly environment... in this instance, i would expect 
that there would be a redirect to the 2861 rules archive for "registered" user 
OINKCODEs and that this would be in effect until there is a 2900 rules archive 
release in at least 30 days...

does this make sense? i do hope it does this time... it didn't seem to last time :?
