First of all, Happy New Year. It has been a very tough year, full of surprises, some positive, some others not. One of these, the premature death of my father, forced us to stop temporarily the development of DEFT 8.1 causing a delay in its release date. In this regard, the board of directors of DEFT Linux Association recently met to plan a new road-map in view of DEFTCON 2014.
DEFT 8.1 will be released no later than the first week of April 2014, thus to be able to present the latest news at DEFTCON; the same day DEFT Zero, a micro live CD for forensic acquisition only, will be released.
With this new year’s post we would like also to publicly thank all the donors of last year, 2013: Gianni Amato, Ricardo Evangelista Munhoz, Jean-Arnaud Causse, Kevin Rei, Charles Powell, Roberto Capone, Paolo Musina and Pier Luca Toselli. These donations contributed to meet a small budget for our first paid development project. Shortly we will post the Internship guidelines. Keep donating. Thanks to your help we will keep developing free open-source software.
Some of you have probably noticed the forum closure. The low use and the frequent and annoying but never successful “take-down” attempts have lead us to substitute the forum with a FAQ page and a support email, available for you both in English and Italian.
Keep following us, we will be back shortly with more interesting news.
