In the last hours the developers of Kali Linux have brought us several surprises, especially for those of us who are interested in these distributions. Not only has an updated installation image been released which has been named Kali Linux 2016.2 but it will change the release and update system as well as the versions that this distribution will have. But we go in parts.
Kali Linux 2016.2 is an updated version that is released with enough time compared to the previous version so we will find quite a few updated penetration tools and packages, something that in the field in which users move, it is necessary.
In addition, from now on, we will have different versions that will be based on the most popular desktops, so we will find a version with KDE, Gnome, MATE, Xfce, Enlightenment and LXDE. Complete desktops that will adapt to any computer but it will have to be 64-bit since there are only installation images for these platforms.
Kali Linux 2016.2 offers an update of many security packages but also new desktops
The other news that the Kali Linux team has brought is the new schedule of updates and versions that will begin this week, in which there will be updates and new versions of the distribution with new tools or more secure functions that will allow the user to work in a safe environment to do their work, something that not only ethical hackers look for but also others.
In any case, Kali Linux is updated in an interesting way as it offers the stability of Debian and Backtrack but with the latest software on the market for security. Now, the inclusion of new tools is not much, being even less than that of other security distributions such as Black Arch Linux, which has more than 1500 penetration and security tools. But that can be fixed Do not you think?
