Kanotix Hellfire 2011-05 based on Debian 6.0 (Squeeze). It contains the latest Debian stable branch with all the latest security updates. In addition Kanotix Hellfire provides useful extras and updated packages. This includes

* Kernel 2.6.38 final (Ubuntu - recompiled)
* KDE SC 4.4.5 with Kanotix Branding
* Amarok 2.4.0
* Libre Office 3.3.2
* Grub2 Bootmanager (Version 1.98+20100804)

In live mode the new Kanotix Hellfire enables users to mount partitions. You don't need to start Dolphin as root anymore. After a root password prompt the same applies to partitions within a Kanotix installation, that should not be mounted via fstab.

The Kanotix Team thanks all of you for the positive feedback for our Kanotix Hellfire release from march. We hope to get a lot of feedback from the community again. Special thanks to the developers Jörg Schirottke (Kano), Andreas Loibl (Acritox) and Maximilian Gerhard (TheOne). Furthermore the Kanotix project thanks the hosting sponsor Hetzner, all mirror servers and the Debian Project.
