Kali Linux 2024.2 released with 18 new tools, Y2038 changes

Kali Linux has released version 2024.2, the first version of 2024, with eighteen new tools and fixes for the Y2038 bug.

As is typical for the year’s first version, the Kali Team has released new visual elements, including wallpapers and updates to the boot menu and login display.

What’s a new Kali release without new tools toys to play with?

Kali says they did not have time to get Linux Kernel 6.8 included, which was released on March 10, but will be included in version 2024.3.

Kali says they have now finished its t64 transition, meaning that all Kali users should perform a full upgrade to receive the new updated packages.

To start using Kali Linux 2024.2, you can upgrade your existing installation, select a platform, or directly download ISO images for new installs and live distributions.
