[Snort-devel] Will snort support rules update on the fly

Hi everybody,

I am wondering if there have any plan to support snort rules update on the fly. Currently, we can edit our rule file and then reload those files, but unfortunately, all of the states (such as session states) are all lost.

I didn't see any plan for this in snort 3.0 or 2.x, so could you share your opinions?
