flowd-0.8 has just been released. It is available from

flowd is a small, fast and secure NetFlow collector that supports
NetFlow versions 1, 5, 7 and 9. It is fully IPv6 capable and
supports capture of flows sent to multicast groups. flowd is
privilege separated to limit the impact of any security
vulnerability. Netflow logs are stored in a compact and flexible
binary format that supports selection of which flow fields are
stored. The flowd distribution provides C, Perl and Python APIs
to read these logs.

Changes since flowd-0.7:

* Implement support for reception of flows sent to multicast group
   addresses. flowd.conf now includes a "join group" directive to
   specify which groups are joined at startup.

* Added writing, concatenation and filtering of flowd logs to the
   flowd-reader tool.

* Lots of documentation fixes from Tamas Tevesz
