BackTrack 5 Released

The developer of BackTrack Linux has high commitment on BackTrack Linux 5 release schedule. They released it on time according to the schedule described on their roadmap.

This version is built based on Ubuntu Lucid LTS (10.04). It uses a different kernel though. They are using the latest Linux Kernel 2.6.38, patched with all relevant wireless injection patches. Fully open source and GPL compliant.

You can start downloading it now, but it's only available on Torrents only (for now). Perhaps they don't want to have their system gets banged by huge amount of request since this Linux distribution is highly anticipated by many users.

Update (08:35 PM): All of them are now complete. Enjoy BackTrack 5 Yahoo
