Version 4.10 of Wifislax, a Slackware-based distribution with a collection of utilities for performing wireless connection analyses and related security tests, has been released.
This the first time the ISO image file exceeds 700 MB which means that it will no longer fit on a CD. The release comes with some user-friendly enhancements, e.g. users no longer need to run "update-grub" after installing the distribution to a hard disk and there is also a new notification system for updated packages. Much of the development has focused on creating update/install scripts, with can be used to update parts of the system, including the Linux kernel. Wifislax 4.10 is built on top of Linux kernel 3.12.35 and it includes a choice of KDE 4.10.5 and Xfce 4.10 desktops. Both Spanish and English languages are supported, although the release announcement is available in Spanish only.
