BackTrack 4 Beta released

As per the news section on the project's site that the major change with this release that "The Remote Exploit development team is happy to announce the release of BackTrack 4 Beta. We have taken huge conceptual leaps with BackTrack 4, and have some new and exciting features. The most significant of these changes is our expansion from the realm of a penetration testing live CD towards a full blown distribution. Now based on Debian core packages and using the Ubuntu software repositories, BackTrack 4 can be upgraded in case of update. When syncing with our BackTrack repositories, you will regularly get security tool updates soon after they are released. Some of the new features include: kernel 2.6.28.1 with better hardware support; native support for Pico e12 and e16 cards is now fully functional; support for PXE boot..."

From my point of View on Security Side, the major additions are:
1) SAINT EXPLOIT - kindly provided by SAINT corporation for our users with a limited number of free IPs.
2) MALTEGO - The guys over at Paterva did outstanding work with Maltego 2.0.2 - which is featured in BackTrack as a community edition.
