Transitioning From Kali 2.0 to Kali Rolling:
Kali Rolling marks the end of Kali Linux 2.0 and the beginning of a new release regime, and today on K4linux we will show you how to upgrade to the new version of Kali Linux.
How rolling releases work?
A rolling-release Linux is one that’s constantly being updated. To some of you, that will sound a lot like DevOps’ idea of continuous deployment.
You’d be right in thinking so. In both cases, the idea is that users and developers are best served by giving them the latest updates and patches as they’re created.
Rather than Kali basing itself off standard Debian releases (such as Debian 7, 8, 9) and going through the cyclic phases of “new, mainstream, outdated”, the Kali rolling release feeds continuously from Debian testing, ensuring a constant flow of the latest package versions.
