This release marks our first (and possibly only if all goes well) release candidate for OSSEC 2.9. Assuming no issues are reported, this release will become the final OSSEC release.
Now is when we need really your help! As a community driven project, we need all the testing a release this size can get. Let us know in the OSSEC mailing list, Github bug tracker, the official OSSEC irc channel (#ossec irc.freenode.net) or on our new Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/ossechids/
