Today we are pleased to announce the immediate availability of Kali Linux 1.0.5 with a rollup of various tool additions, fixes, and upgrades, including our fix for the encrypted encrypted LVM installation issue that we documented last week. As usual, users with Kali already installed just need to run a simple update to get the latest goodness:
root@kali:~# apt-get dist-upgrade
We’ve also received updated ARM images from Offensive Security, which bring several fixes to issues found in the 1.0.4 releases. Kali Linux has specific ARM images for 9 separate hardware devices/families, including the Raspberry Pi, Galaxy Note 10.1, BeagleBone Black, Odroid U2, Odroid XU (!) and more. While Kali Linux works on all the hardware above natively, don’t forget you can get Kali Linux installed on almost any Android phone or tablet.
Software Defined Radio (SDR) researchers will be especially pleased to know that we have made some significant tool additions in this growing field.
