Security Onion 20120405 now available!

Security Onion 20120405 is now available!  This resolves the following issue:
Issue 219: Default Web page

After this upgrade, you will have a new default web page for the Apache web server at https://localhost.  This new page contains links to Squert, Snorby, and Xplico on the local server.  It also contains links to the Security Onion blog, wiki, etc.

The existing README.html on user desktops will be replaced with a link to this page.

Any Firefox profiles that are still set to the default home page will be set to https://localhost.

PLEASE close any running instances of Firefox BEFORE running the upgrade to make sure that the home page gets set properly and not overwritten by the running Firefox instance.

New Users
New users can download and install the 20120125 ISO image using the instructions here. The step marked "Install Security Onion updates" will automatically install this update.

In-place Upgrade
Existing Security Onion users can perform an in-place upgrade using the following command (if you're behind a proxy, remember to set your proxy variables as described in the FAQ):
sudo -i "curl -L > ~/ && bash ~/"
