A brand new feature are our GFX overlays. That enables you to use Nvidia or ATI 3D graphics driver from the beginning in live mode. If you install Kanotix with enabled GFX overlays there are included in the hd installation too. You don't need to reinstall them.
You can download the new Kanotix Hellfire 2011-05 ISO images directly or via zsync.

installation of Kanotix
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.
