BDR2 Progress Report (towards Ubuntu 14.04)

I recently announced our move towards Ubuntu 14.04, called the Big Distro Rebuild 2 (BDR2):

I'm pleased to report that BDR2 is coming along quite nicely!

What works?
At this point, the securityonion-all metapackage and all of its dependencies should install correctly on Ubuntu 14.04 and most of the software should work correctly.

What doesn't work?
Xplico and Salt haven't been moved over yet.  There may be a few other optional packages which haven't been fully tested yet.

How can we help?
We're going to need lots of help testing all of these packages over the next few months, so if you'd like to contribute back to the community, please join the security-onion-testing mailing list and then see the following threads:


What's new?
Most things are staying the same, although we're updating ELSA to the latest version which includes new animated charts and dashboards using charts.js.
