Developers log here.

So far I've only managed to have a quick play with the VMware image (it's a nice addition to the download section, but no major advantage (unless I missed it) of booting the live cd on a virtual host) as it was only download link with decent download speed last night.

Overall it appears largely similar to the beta that was released, slightly more polished and a couple of extra tools. I haven't had a chance to play with (or even find) the SAINT offering metioned in the development log. Was playing at 2am at work on a call-out so not at my most alert (and now back at work 5 hours later for another client, no rest for the wicked...)

If anyway finds any cool changes or new toys feel free to keep me in the loop ;)

I have downloaded the USB version, and having a little fiddle.
Works a treat, and so simple to setup and get running.

Re: BackTrack 3 Final released

OK, I've been messing about with the VMware version, and I've noticed some differences from the Backtrack 2 ChicagoCon VMware version;
1. When installing on VMware Workstation 5.x you get a Kernel Panic while booting the VM image. This does not occur with VMware Workstation 6.
2. The man pages work.  :D
3. Many of the tools have been updated and there are many new tools too, though I have not tried many of them.
4. Firefox doesn't seem to be working optimaly. I'm not sure why, though I found myself becoming frustrated trying to use it. The text didn't seem clear though the graphics for other apps seemed just fine. I'm still checking this to find the root of my irritation with this.
5. The VM NIC came configured in bridged mode while most VM NICS (including the previous version) come in NAT mode - minor gripe, but it wasted my precious time while I was raring to go with this distro.

I love that they have a working version of Maltego. Great stuff.

Re: BackTrack 3 Final released

Maltego was the first thing I noticed. Second thing was firefox glitching on me.

Re: BackTrack 3 Final released

It seems things that used to work have been broken. My mouse wheel didn't scroll in BT3 while in BT2 it did. I eventually managed to fix this by editing /etc/X11/xorg.conf. The fix is to edit line 285 as follows;
  Code:
    Option "Protocol"    "IMPS/2"


This was on my home PC. I have not been able to test this on my work laptop as it's been sent of to IBM for fixing (mobo went crazy  :'( ). So I'll only be able to check if this is a local issue for me when I get it back during next week. I do presume that it is dependant on what type of mouse you have, however the previous configuration
  Code:
    Option "Protocol"    "ps/2"
just didn't work for my generic PS2 mouse.

Anyway if it's a global issue, then you can all just use the fix above.
