BackTrack 3 Final - Release Information
Released on pauldotcom.com

Max, Martin and I have slaved for weeks and months, together with the
help of many remote-exploit'ers to bring you this fine release. As
usual, this version overshadows the previous ones with extra cool
things.

SAINT
SAINT has provided BackTrack users with a functional version of SAINT,
pending a free request for an IP range license through the SAINT
website, valid for 1 year.

Maltego
The guys over at Paterva have created a special version of Maltego
v2.0 with a community license especially for BackTrack users. We would
like to thank Paterva for co-operating with us and allowing us to
feature this amazing tool in BackTrack.

Nessus
Tenable would not allow for redistribution of Nessus on BackTrack 3.

Kernel
2.6.21.5. Yes, yes, stop whining....We had serious deliberations
concerning the BT3 kernel. We decided not to upgrade to a newer kernel
as wireless injection patches were not fully tested and verified. We
did not want to jeopardize the awesome wireless capabilities of BT3
for the sake of sexiness or slightly increased hardware
compatibilities. All relevant security patches have been applied.

Tools
As usual, updated, sharpened, SVN'ed and armed to the teeth. This
release we have some special features such as spoonwep, fastrack and
other cool additions.
