Parrot OS: Parrot 4.2.2 release notes

Parrot 4.2.2 released

They are proud to announce the release of Parrot 4.2. It was a very problematic release for their team because of the many important updates under the hood of a system that looks almost identical to its previous release, except for a new background designed by Federica Marasà and a new graphic theme (ARK-Dark).

New Features

  • Latest Linux 4.18 debianized kernel with all the usual wireless patches
  • A new version of the Debian-Installer now powers netinstall images and the standard Parrot images
  • Updated Firmware packages with broader hardware support, including wireless devices and AMD vega graphics
  • Adjusted AppArmor and Firejail profiles which offers good compromise of security and usability for most of the desktop and CLI applications and services
  •  Latestlibreoffice 6.1 release, Firefox 62 and many other important updates
  • Updated and fixed Armitage , fixed “missing RHOSTS error”
  •  Latest Metasploit 4.17.11 version. Wireshark 2.6, hashcat 4.2, edb-debugger 1.0 and many many other updated tools
