A small bug in new installer: sources.list is having our source list which should be in sources.list.d/parrot.list. Both are having the same data.

Local file wasn’t fixed

some minor improvements to the new calamares installer will be included in the final release :slight_smile:


IMO we should make beta 2 to make sure everything is fine first

are there any news concerning debian, devuan, LTS to parrot 4.9?

best regards

we have to follow our upstream software distributors, and if debian releases a lot of updates, we have to be fast to include them as well

@dmknght - The 4.8.1 ISO didn’t have NoScript, Ublock Orgin, and Privacy Badger preinstalled in Firefox. I’m unable to try out the beta 4.9 ISO at the moment, has this been addressed?

Lastly, I want to say how happy I am to see this system and community grow and mature since I started using it in 2015. It’s gotten better and more polished since the days of “hacker neon” everywhere. :slight_smile:

Beta 2 release is here
Let me test the script problem. I confirmed the plugins had problem before on my machine after an update and we have to fix it
