The BackTrack Team is proud to announce the public release of BackTrack 4 R1. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, we believe this version is by far the best version released to date. With a shiny new 2.6.34 kernel, there are many significant improvements, such as expanded hardware support, and improved desktop responsiveness. Check out some screenshots.
Tools have been updated systemwide, and a full Fluxbox desktop environment has been added. A walk-around for the rt28xx driver has been implemented (for all you AWUS050NH owners).
The VMWare version has complete integration with VMWare Tools, which provides a seamless interaction with BackTrack in a virtual environment.
We wish you all a great time with this fine release – Feel free to download it – burn it and make out with it. We await to hear feedback in our forums and Twitter. Lastly, if you are looking for high quality, hands on penetration testing training – check out our Offensive Security Training page.
