Earlier this year in March, Parrot Security OS 3.5 was released, which was powered by Linux kernel 4.9.13 and Debian GNU/Linux 9 Stretch. Now, after few months of hard work, the Parrot Security team is here with the next release of this Kali Linux alternative, i.e., Parrot 3.6.
Changes and improvements in Parrot Security OS 3.6:
Apart from the polishing part, work has been done to make Parrot Security OS 3.6 less memory-hungry. This was done by tuning up startup daemons management system and minor fixes. As a result, Parrot 3.6 Lite 32-bit now uses less than 200MB RAM.
In this journey of overall improvement, work has been done to make Anonsurf better. Now, the anonymity and privacy section is reliable and well-tested.
Parrot devs mention that they wish to focus more on Lite and Studio editions as Parrot Core is also suitable for different general purpose derivate projects.
Parrot Air For Wireless testing
This release also brings a new Parrot OS derivative named Parrot Air. It’s similar to Parrot Full and comes with tools dedicated solely for wireless testing. Parrot team says that Parrot Air is just a proof of concept that’ll be improved in future.
