Suricata 6.0.0 beta 1 released

Hi all,

We’re happy to announce the release of Suricata 6.0.0 beta 1. Please see:


Does this version address the npcap compatibility issue for Windows systems? Currently, the latest supported and working version of npcap is npcap-0.9992 which suffers from multiple security and functionality defects(this is in combination with Suricata 5.0.3).

Will newer versions of npcap such as npcap-0.9996 work with the 6.0 branch of Suricata?

Yes it should.
This will be tackled in the 6.0 beta1 MSI release this week.
