Kali Linux 2.0 (Sana) Release Day Scheduled

kali-2.0-sana

The Team behind Kali Linux have been awfully quiet lately, which usually means something is brewing below the surface. In the past few months they have been working feverishly on the next generation of Kali Linux and it’s looking as if they are really happy with how it’s looking so far. There’s a lot of new features and interesting new aspects to this updated version, however they are keeping tight lipped until they have completed the release.

Kali Linux developers say the first revamp of the platform since it was reborn in 2013 will be showcased at the DEF CON hacking confab. The platform sports a redesigned and streamlined user interface, new menus, and the latest penetration testing tools.

It also sports native Ruby 2.0 to help speed loading of the Metasploit hacking box, weekly updating of core tools, and desktop notifications and screencasting.

The upgrade is the first in two years since BackTrack Linux was redeveloped and relaunched as Kali Linux in May 2013. It has followed two-year upgrade cycles since 2011 when a new version was released every 12 months.

They have left us with a little teaser ….
