Kali Linux gets its final update with new interesting features


The Debian-based Linux distribution Kali Linux has got its final update for this year. Kali Linux 2019.4 is now available for download for penetration testers and ethical hackers.


The latest version of Kali Linux comes with a lot of interesting features such as a new desktop environment, a new theme, and the longed-for undercover mode that enables pen-testers to hide assessments at public places.

* A whole new desktop environment – Kali finally makes a shift from the GNOME desktop environment to a new theme running on lightweight Xfce desktop environment in this new version. The GNOME desktop environment that has been running for quite some time and is a full-fledged desktop environment, has become problematic for a number of Kali users since “these features come with overhead, often overhead that is not useful for a distribution like Kali”. Other than that, the team behind Kali Linux believes that it was time to give a “fresh, new, and modern” look to the Linux software.
