Third milestone: SnabbWall can now analyze traffic

After a small hiatus, work on SnabbWall is progressing steadily again: the L7Spy Snabb application and the snabb wall spy command, which can be used to scan network traffic and detect L7 data flows, have landed in the repository. Our main developer has written a lengthy post about these features, which completes the third milestone of the development roadmap.

The ljndpi FFI binding has received updates as well. Starting with version 0.0.3, it can be used with nDPI 1.8; and in order to ease adoption of ljndpi by projects other than SnabbWall, the module has been uploaded to the LuaRocks repository.
