The new version comes with new tools, a fresh look (themes, wallpapers and icons for Kali and Kali Purple), a new image viewer for the Gnome desktop and a usability enhancement to the Xfce desktop (the ability to copy one’s VPN IP address to the clipboard with just a click), and updates for the Kali NetHunter mobile pentesting platform (i.e., app).

  • Opentaxii, a TAXII server Python implementation
  • Readpe – Command-line tools to manipulate Windows PE files
  • Snort, a libpcap-based packet sniffer/logger a flexible network intrusion detection system

“There has also been a tool submitted from the community which has been merged into Kali: Above, an invisible protocol sniffer for finding vulnerabilities in the network,” the maintainers added.

NetHunter Rootless works on Android 14, the capability to run a Bad Bluetooth HID attack has been added to NetHunter app (for both phones and smartwatches), and there are several new Kali NetHunter kernels (for Realme C15, TicWatch Pro 3, Xiaomi Poco X3 NFC, and an updated one for Samsung Galaxy S9+).
