Dear community,

Over the past two months, IntelMQ contributors had no summer pause, but
did the final finish for IntelMQ 3.0.

A special thanks goes to Mikk Margus Möll (CERT.ee) who has put
tremendous efforts in the IntelMQ Manager tackling structural and
usability issues, mainly in the JavaScript-components!

The deb/rpm repositories did not receive the 3.0.0 release at beginning
of July to get more experience with the major changes before doing
automatic upgrades, but now they deliver the brand-new 3.0.1 version.
Please note, that the automatic upgrade procedures may still not be
fully smooth. Just now, we have noticed, that the packages contain a
small flaw, which harms the upgrade experience: The packages ship a
default configuration (the file is now called `runtime.yaml`), but only
if the file does not exist before - for new installations. But now in
this special case, we renamed the configuration from `runtime.conf` to
`runtime.yaml` and therefore, the new - default shipped - configuration
takes precedence. I hope the following commands and hints will be of
help to you.

# remove the runtime configuration shipped by the package (can be called
/etc/intelmq/runtime.*) and rename your original one to
# the previously used runtime.conf can be used as drop-in to
runtime.yaml (YAML is backwards-compatible with JSON)
sudo -u intelmq intelmqctl upgrade-config -f -u v300_pipeline_file_removal
sudo -u intelmq intelmqctl upgrade-config -f -u v300_defaults_file_removal
sudo -u intelmq intelmqctl upgrade-config -f -u v301_deprecations
The last three steps are important to merge the defaults and pipeline
configuration into the new combined configuration file

Please do not hesitate to ask.

The deb-packages are also already available for the newly released
Debian 11 Bullseye.

We are not planning a bugfix release until the 3.1.0 release, so that
one will be the next version to be released.

Here's a short summary of what happened during the summer:
- various fixes related to the IEP001 implementation (IEP001 was the
change configuration format and merge of files, rewrite oft the internal
- removal of the malwaredomains feed and parser, because it does not
exist anymore
- Various fixes in the Shadowserver Parser and support for new reports:
Vulnerable SMTP Server, Microsoft Sinkhole Events Report & Microsoft
Sinkhole HTTP Events Report, Honeypot HTTP Scan
- SMTP Output: Added Content-Disposition-header to the attachment,
fixing the display in MS Outlook clients (as reported and dicussed on
the Mailinglist).
- Heavy refactoring of IntelMQ-Manager's JavaScript parts to fix errors
and usability issues.
