   Metasploit Framework 5.0 is a massive update that includes database and automation APIs, new evasion capabilities, and usability improvements throughout. Check out their in-progress release notes to learn about all the new goodness.
   Kali Linux 2019.1 also includes updated packages for theHarvester, DBeaver, and more. For the complete list of updates, fixes, and additions, please refer to the Kali Bug Tracker Changelog.

ARM Updates: The 2019.1 Kali Linux release for ARM includes the return of Banana Pi and Banana Pro, both of which are on the 4.19 kernel. Veyron has been moved to a 4.19 kernel and the Raspberry Pi images have been simplified so it is easier to figure out which one to use. There are no longer separate Raspberry Pi images for users with TFT LCDs because we now include re4son’s kalipi-tft-config script on all of them, so if you want to set up a board with a TFT, run kalipi-tft-config and follow the prompts.

Download or Upgrade to Kali Linux 2019.1
   If you would like to check out this latest and greatest Kali release, you can find download links for ISOs and Torrents on the Kali Linux Downloads page along with links to the Offensive Security virtual machine and ARM images, which have also been updated to 2019.1. If you already have a Kali installation you’re happy with, you can easily upgrade with the following command:
   apt update && apt -y full-upgrade

Ensuring your Installation is Updated
   To double check your version, first make sure your Kali Linux package repositories are correct.
root@kali:~# cat /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib

   Then after running apt -y full-upgrade, you may require a reboot before checking:
root@kali:~# grep VERSION /etc/os-release
VERSION="2019.1"
VERSION_ID="2019.1"
root@kali:~#
root@kali:~# uname -a
Linux kali 4.19.0-kali1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.19.13-1kali1 (2019-01-03) x86_64 GNU/Linux

   If you come across any bugs in Kali Linux, please open a report on their bug tracker. Offensive Security will never be able to fix what they don’t know about.
