BackTrack 3.0 final released

BackTrack is the result of the merging of two Innovative Penetration Testing live Linux distributions - Whax and Auditor. BackTrack has been dubbed as the best Security Live CD today, and has been rated 1st in its category, and 32nd overall in Insecure.org. Based on SLAX (Slackware), BackTrack provides user modularity. This means the distribution can be easily customised by the user to include personal scripts, additional tools, customised kernels, etc

The Extra things :

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
2.6.21.5. 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.

Availability
We will be releasing an internal "IRC pre release" version of BT3F for final testing and identification of possible blunders...and shortly after that we will have a full blown release.
