Grab The Newly Released Kali Linux 2016.2 With The Desktop Flavor of Your Choice


We saw the first Rolling Release of Kali Linux in April, earlier this year with changes that were made to ensure that ethical hackers and pen testers alike have access to the latest and best tools. The same release also added a Kali Linux Package Tracker Tool and changed the way VMware guest tools were installed.

Now, the Kali Linux ethical hacking distro is here with its second Kali Rolling ISO release: Kali 2016.2 with the promise of delivering many new updates and changes. One of such changes and improvements is the addition of HTTPS support in busybox that allows for a secure installation over SSL.

There Shall be Weekly ISOs

According to the announcement post for Kali 2016.2, Kali developers have decided to release updated builds of the OS weekly because there are a huge number of new and updated packages owing to the fact that the last release was months ago. This way, users can download Kali images that are updated while avoiding the hassle of a long “apt-get dist-upgrade” session.

Kali Linux developers have also announced that Kali ‘Sana’ repositories are finally retiring from the servers.

ISOs with Flavored Desktop Environments

Kali Linux provides enough flexibility for users to install their favorite desktop environment in order to have a better personalized experience but that didn’t stop users from wanting to see default desktop environments other than GNOME.

This Kali Linux 2016.2 release comes in many distros to allow users use their favorite desktop environment. The desktop flavors are Xfce, MATE, LXDE, KDE, and e17. Remember, though, that these flavors are only available as 64-bit releases.
