Kali Linux 2020.2 Released with Dark and Light KDE Plasma Themes
A new version of Kali Linux is now available for download, and this time it brings plenty of improvements, including new light and dark themes for KDE Plasma. Additionally, Kali Linux 2020.2 also features a more polished login screen, as the dev team focused on improving the both the design and the layout. The new version also includes PowerShell news, as the team has promoted it from the network repository to the one primary metapackage. “We now have put PowerShell into one of our (primary) metapackages, kali-linux-large. This means, if you choose to install this metapackage during system setup, or once Kali is up and running (sudo apt install -y kali-linux-large), if PowerShell is compatible with your architecture, you can just jump straight into it (pwsh)!” the release notes of the new version explain. Then, Kali Linux 2020.2 comes with ARM improvements, including a 16GB of storage or more to install it on an SD card.
"New icons" As every new release, this updated version comes not only with new packages, including GNOME 3.36 and Python 3.8, although Python continues to be offered. “For the time being, as a temporary measure due to certain tools needing it, we have re-included python2-pip. Python 2 has now reached “End Of Life” and is no longer getting updated. Tool makers, please, please, please port to Python 3. Users of tools, if you notice that a tool is not Python 3 yet, you can help too! It is not going to be around forever,” the team says. Needless to say, there are also new icons in this fresh release, and you’ll notice the changes in the Kali Linux menu and the tools page on GitLab. The new images are already available for download and existing users can update to the latest release using the following commands:
