    Me too! I think I just lost my weekend... LOL

    The Kali undercover is sweet. 'No dude, I just have this dumb useless Windows environment running'
    It helps stop the shoulder surfers / passersby from knowing what is actually happening 

    Powershell is a nice addition as well.

    FYI...

    2019.4 includes some exciting new updates:

    • A new default desktop environment, Xfce
    • New GTK3 theme (for Gnome and Xfce)
    • Introduction of “Kali Undercover” mode
    • Kali Documentation has a new home and is now Git powered
    • Public Packaging – getting your tools into Kali
    • Kali NetHunter KeX – Full Kali desktop on Android
    • BTRFS during setup
    • Added PowerShell
    • The kernel is upgraded to version 5.3.9
    • … Plus the normal bugs fixes and updates.

    Mine ran fine for a day or so then crashed every time I launched Chromium. So I uninstalled and reinstalled Chromium. So far, no problems.

    ok..... I ran the Kali desktop on an andriod VM and was nice to see how it works. I will try it on a phone and compare.

    Anybody have problems with this installation?

    Before you upgrade, make sure to back up your current installation in case you need to roll back.

    No. I have used the VM's but I am waiting to get my hands on a real phone... just to play.

    I love the XFCE icon theme and I think the screen recorder baked in and on the panel is a nice touch. PowerShell is really cool too.

    Odd that OWASP-ZAP was excluded from this release. It's easy enough to install after the fact, but I still find the exclusion odd.

    I downloaded the virtual box package, after login it just stop responding, anybody tried that?

    For now I will download the iso and do a manual install on virtual box.

    The Virtual Box OVA from Offensive Security seems to be doing fine for me. The ISO, on the other hand, was a little buggy. I'm keeping my older builds handy just in case.

    I downloaded the free vmware player and vmware image, the new version feels much better than the old one.

    Wow I had to manually install screen, nikto, and nmap. A bit bare bones!

    They were in my fresh install. With meta-packages (https://www.kali.org/news/major-metapackage-makeover/), you can do a apt install kali-linux-full or even apt install kali-linux-everything to get the important packages installed.
