A few updates about the release:
Saint - SAINT has provided BackTrack users with a functional version of SAINT, pending a free request for an IP range license through the SAINT website, valid for 1 year.
Maltego - The guys over at Paterva have created a special version of Maltego v2.0 with a community license especially for BackTrack users. We would like to thank Paterva for co-operating with us and allowing us to feature this amazing tool in BackTrack.
Nessus - Tenable would not allow for redistribution of Nessus.
Kernel - 18.104.22.168. Yes, yes, stop whining....We had serious deliberations concerning the BT3 kernel. We decided not to upgrade to a newer kernel as wireless injection patches were not fully tested and verified. We did not want to jeopardize the awesome wireless capabilities of BT3 for the sake of sexiness or slightly increased hardware compatibilities. All relevant security patches have been applied.
Tools - As usual, updated, sharpened, SVN'ed and armed to the teeth. This release we have some special features such as spoonwep, fastrack and other cool additions.
