6 month EOL notice for Security Onion Xplico package

Our Xplico package will reach EOL (End Of Life) on June 5, 2018. After that date, we will no longer provide updates or support of any kind for Xplico.

Since 2015, our Setup wizard has disabled Xplico by default when choosing the "Best Practices" option:

Most users are not using Xplico at all.  Most of its functionality can be found in other tools.

We recently released our 14.04.5.5 ISO image and it no longer includes Xplico:

Additionally, we recently made some changes to make it easier to totally remove the Xplico package from your existing system:
