    What’s new in Kali Rolling?
    Kali 2016.1 – Released on 21st January, 2016 – The first Please or Register to view links release, with Kernel 4.3 and Gnome 3.18.

    Kali Rolling Release vs Standard Releases
    To get a better understanding of the changes that this brings to Kali, a clearer picture of Please or Register to view links is needed. Rather than Kali basing itself off standard Debian releases (such as Debian 7, 8, 9) and going through the cyclic phases of “new, mainstream, outdated”, the Kali rolling release feeds continuously from Please or Register to view links, ensuring a constant flow of the latest package versions.

    Continuously Updated Penetration Testing Tools
    Our automated notification system of updated penetration testing tool releases has been working well over the past 5 months and has ensured that the kali-rolling repository always holds the latest stable releases of monitored tools. This usually leaves a gap of around 24-48 hours from notification of a new tool update, to its packaging, testing, and pushing into our repositories. We would also like to introduce our new Please or Register to view links which allows you to follow the evolution of Kali Linux both with email updates and a comprehensive web interface. The tracker can also help in identifying which versions of various tools and packages are in our repository at any given moment. As an example, the screenshot below shows the timeline of the nmap package in Kali and tracks its repository versions.

    VMware Tools vs Open-VM-Tools
    This release also marks a dramatic change around how VMware guest tools are installed. As of Sept 2015, VMware Please or Register to view linksusing the distribution-specific open-vm-tools instead of the VMware Tools package for guest machines. We have made sure that our package installs and works correctly with the latest Kali rolling kernel and are happy to see that all the needed functionality such as file copying, clipboard copy/paste and automatic screen resizing are working perfectly. To install open-vm-tools in your Kali Rolling image, enter:​

    apt-get update
    apt-get install open-vm-tools-desktop fuse

    Transitioning From Kali 2.0 to Kali Rolling
    Migrating from Kali sana (2.0) to Kali rolling is simple. As root, you can run the following commands and be on your way:
    cat << EOF > /etc/apt/sources.list
    deb Please or Register to view links kali-rolling main non-free contrib

    apt-get update
