   It's great to see a new release of MASON. Do you have an on-line
pointer to a summary of the new features in version 11? (I couldn't
find anything perusing the /projects/mason location).

   BTW, I may have forgotten to point you to our paper last fall
that references your recent MASON work:

   Detecting Coordinated Attacks in Tactical Wireless Networks
   using Cooperative Signature-based Detectors. 2005. Mike Little,
   Calvin Ko. IEEE MILCOM 2005.
