Backtrack 5 Gnome x86 (2011)

Backtrack 5 Gnome x86 (2011) | 1.55 GBAs BackTrack 5 development rolls on full stm ahd, we’ve been getting numerous questions about the future relse. We thought we’d publish a blog post with eral information about BT5 for the impatient. The name of this relse will be “revolution”, for a bunch of rsons.
BackTrack 5 will be based on Ubuntu Lucid (10.04 LTS), and will (finally) support both 32 bit and 64 bit architectures. We will be officially supporting KDE 4, Gnome and Fluxbox while providing users strmlined ISO downloads of ch Desktop Environment (DE). Tool integration from our repositories will be smless with all our supported DE’s, including the specific DE menu structure.

Perhaps most importantly BackTrack 5 “revolution” will be our first relse to include full source in it’s repositories. This is a big thing for us, as it officially joins us to the open-source community and clrs up any licensing issues which were present in BackTrack 4.

The absence of source availability in BT4 was mainly due to lack of resources when we initially structured the BT4 development environment. Newly armed with our support from Offensive Security, we have now built a *proper* development environment, which allows us to do some pretty awesome things.

Our tool list has completely been revamped and refreshed. ch tool’s functionality was assessed and decided upon before inclusion to BT5. Obviously, we are constantly staying up to date with interesting new tools and are adding them to our repositories when appropriate. In addition, our menu structure has been much optimized – strmlined with both the PTES and OSSTMM standards. This will make finding and using the right tools much sier.

We are finally able to update our roadmap and pin down a date for the relse – May 10th, 2011. If you have a tool request for a tool that does not alrdy exist in BackTrack, plse use this form to request it. This form will be active for 4 weeks.
