Kali Linux: The v2020.2 version has been released with graphics changes

The new Kali Linux v2020.2 has been released. This is the second version operating system for 2020. However, in this version, we will not see so many changes and improvements in performance, as we saw in the previous one. The main goal of the v2020.2 version is to update and improve its graphical interface. systemic. Below, we report the most important changes.

Kali Linux installation program:

In the previous version v2020.1, the manufacturers of the operating system, removed the ability to download ISO files with different graphics environments. However, users could select the graphical interface and default packages when installing the system. Unfortunately, this change led users to install all the packages in the system, so the operating system takes a long time to install.

For this reason, in the last version, the above option was removed. Now, all system packages, as well as all graphical environments, are contained in ISO file. So the operating system takes much less time to install, as you don't have to download the necessary packages. One downside, however, is the larger size of the ISO file.

Changes to the Desktop and its theme:

In previous versions of the Operating System, dark themes have been added GNOME and Xfce desktop. In this version, the variant theme found a place in KDE Plasma desktop.

In addition, Kali Linux contains the latest version of GNOME, known as 3.36, which features performance improvements as well as many new features. In addition to the changes in themes and graphics, the new Kali Linux also comes with a renewed login screen.
