Parrot Security is out with new version 3.2 with Linux kernel 4.7. Codenamed CyberSloop, the kernel is customised to meet its hardware needs and includes MATE 1.16 desktop environment.

As an upgrade over its predecessor, Parrot Security 3.2 includes Linux 4.7.5 kernel. The distribution also comes with some upgraded pre-installed software packages and improves the experience through the new MATE desktop version.

The development team behind Parrot Security took some time to resolve bugs in the Debian testing repository. This resulted in a delay in the release of the update.

“This new version comes after a long while due to some buggy packages in the Debian Testing repository that we were forced to fix by our own,” writes Lorenzo “Palinuro” Faletra, chief contributor for Parrot Security, in a blog post.

You need at least 16GB of free disk space as well as 1GHz 32-bit or 64-bit ARM dual-core processor and 256 MB of RAM to run the latest Parrot Security. Your system also needs to have a Legacy BIOS or UEFI enable the latest features.

Live ISO images of the updated Parrot are available to download with LXDE desktop environment (32-bit only). However, you can download Cloud, Lite and Studio edition on a 64-bit system.
