Hi there guys,

Kali Linux 1.0.7 Released – Official annoucement:

This release has the Linux Kernel 3.14, loads of fixed bugs and Package Bugs, updated and new tools, fixed some issues with Virtualbox and Kernel 3.14 and some interesting improvements, such as this:

“One of the new sought out features introduced (which is also partially responsible for the kernel update) is the ability to create Kali Linux Live USB with LUKS Encrypted Persistence.
