Kali Linux 1.1.0 - The Best Penetration Testing Distribution


After almost two years of public development (and another year behind the scenes), we are proud to announce our first point release of Kali Linux – version 1.1.0. This release brings with it a mix of unprecedented hardware support as well as rock solid stability. For us, this is a real milestone as this release epitomizes the benefits of our move from BackTrack to Kali Linux over two years ago. As we look at a now mature Kali, we see a versatile, flexible Linux distribution, rich with useful security and penetration testing related features, running on all sorts of weird and wonderful ARM hardware. But enough talk, here are the goods:
  • The new release runs a 3.18 kernel, patched for wireless injection attacks.
  • Our ISO build systems are now running off live-build 4.x.
  • Improved wireless driver support, due to both kernel and firmware upgrades.
  • NVIDIA Optimus hardware support.
  • A whole bunch of fixes and updates from our bug-tracker changelog.
  • And most importantly, we changed grub screens and wallpapers!

Upgrade Kali Linux 1.1.0

If you’ve already got Kali Linux installed and running, there’s no need to re-download the image as you can simply update your existing operating system using simple apt commands:
apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade
