Patrick Schleizer has announced the release of Whonix 16, a major update of the project’s Debian-based distribution designed for advanced security and privacy via fail-safe, automatic and desktop-wide use of the Tor network. The new release is based on the recently-released Debian 11: “After approximately two years of development, the Whonix project is proud to announce the release of Whonix 16. Whonix 16 is based on the Debian ‘Bullseye’ (Debian 11) distribution. This means that users have access to many new software packages in concert with existing packages. In addition, this release will serve as a development foundation for many exciting upcoming security enhancements, such as Hardened Malloc Kicksecure (HMK), Linux Kernel Runtime Guard (LKRG) and other items on the Whonix Security Roadmap. Major changes: switched back from deb.torproject.org tor package to packages.debian.org stable tor package; binaries-freedom package is deprecated; enable Debian fasttrack repository by default…” See the release announcement for further information, upgrade instructions and known issues. Whonix is provided as an OVA file that can be imported into VirtualBox; here is the download link: Whonix-XFCE-184.108.40.206.ova (2,121MB, SHA512, signature, torrent, pkglist).
