Just dropped today, :-) :-)
And I JUST happened to come across it as I was searching for something new :-)
Here's the new description as per the great people at off-sec:
"The Remote Exploit Development Team is happy to announce the release of BackTrack 4 Beta. We have taken huge conceptual leaps with BackTrack 4, and have some new and exciting features. The most significant of these changes is our expansion from the realm of a Pentesting LiveCD towards a full blown "Distribution".
Now based on Debian core packages and utilizing the Ubuntu software repositories, BackTrack 4 can be upgraded in case of update. When syncing with our BackTrack repositories, you will regularly get security tool updates soon after they are released."
You can find that and all the rest about what they have to say about it at:
