Sep 04, 2019

2019.2 supports more Android devices.

Offensive Security has announced the release of Kali Linux 2019.2. Kali Linux is one of the most popular and widely used penetration testing Linux distributions.

The release is based on Linux kernel  5.2.9, and “includes various new features across the board with NetHunter, ARM, and packages (plus the normal bugs fixes and updates),” according to the project’s announcement page.

According to Softpedia, “The Kali Linux NetHunter project for running the OS on Android devices has been updated as well in this release with support for new smartphones, including LG V20 International Edition, Nexus 5X, Nexus 10, and OnePlus 7, the latter being Offensive Security's new flagship device for Kali Linux NetHunter.”

To speed up delivery of the distro and subsequent updates, Offensive Security has partnered with Cloudflare to use its content delivery network (CDN) to mirror its repositories.

Users can download Kali Linux from the official page.
