Hi list,

The OSSEC team is pleased to announce the general availability of
OSSEC version 2.0.

This new version is the first one with support for agentless
monitoring and include many others new features and bug fixes:

*Compiled Rules - Per popular demand, we are introducing the
capability in the product to be able to use pre-compiled rules written
in ?C?. Customers who felt that the XML format for writing rules was
very limiting, can now use the strong programming capabilities of C.
*Agentless Monitoring - Lot of enterprises are faced with the
requirement to monitor devices where there are restrictions on Agents
to be installed either because of scalability requirements or due to
the lack of the native operating system support. In version 2.0, Ossec
customers can perform integrity checking and real time logs inspection
on remote systems (such as Linux based devices, firewall devices such
as PIX and routers etc).
*New Language Support - We added support for the Dutch language in
the install.
*New Log Rules Support - We added support for Yum logs and
fixed/improved many of the other rules for different messages.
*New reporting tool - We added a new tool to create and help
generate reports

And much more...
