Backtrack 5 R1 Released

The most widely used linux-based penetration testing distro, BackTrack had a new release yesterday. Backtrack 5 R1 was released on August 18 which adds 30 new tools in the famous hacker's distro.

Offsec team says:

We are really happy with this release, and believe that as with every release, this is our best one yet. Some pesky issues such as rfkill in VMWare with rtl8187 issues have been fixed, which provides for a much more solid experience with BackTrack.
We’ve released Gnome and KDE ISO images for 32 and 64 bit (no arm this release, sorry!), as well as a VMWare image of a 32 bit Gnome install, with VMWare Tools pre-installed.
