[Bro] Detecting heartbleed activity

I have pulled the latest branch, installed and pushed to my hosts.  I
loaded the heartbleed as indicated, then I am testing with the
following site (https://filippo.io/Heartbleed/) so I can try and cause
a notice.  After running the attack,  I can't seem to get a notice

So I figure either the attach generated by this site doesn't trigger
the script to insert a log, or I have something not configured right
still.  Is there some way I can check to see that I am in fact on this
branch on all my nodes?  Is there a specific version number or
something I can verify?

I can see the file in place, and the load statement in my local.bro,
so not really sure what else to check.  Any assistance would be much
