Information about Porteus Kiosk 4.5.0

Porteus is a fast, portable and modular live CD/USB medium based on Slackware Linux. The distribution started as a community remix of Slax, another Slackware-based live CD (which is no longer actively maintained), with KDE 3 as the default desktop for the i486 edition and a stripped-down KDE 4 as the desktop environment for the x86_64 flavour. The lightweight LXDE is available as an alternative desktop environment.

Tomasz Jokiel has announced the availability of a new release of Porteus Kiosk, a Gentoo-based distribution used for exclusively running a web browser. The projects latest release, Porteus Kiosk 4.5.0, includes several package upgrades, including Linux 4.12, Firefox 52 ESR and Chrome 60. In addition, the distribution now supports configuring multiple touch screens connected to one computer. "Major software upgrades in this release include: Linux kernel 4.12.10, Mozilla Firefox 52.3.0 ESR and Google Chrome 60.0.3112.113. Packages from the userland are upgraded to portage snapshot tagged on 20170901. Short change log for 4.5.0 release: Added support for EAP over LAN (802.1x) authentication on wired connections. VNC and SSH daemons can be limited to listening on localhost interface. This is useful from security point of view as nobody can access the kiosk on public network interface. Mind that youll have to use another service: Porteus Kiosk Server, Guacamole, NoVNC, etc in order to tunnel VNC or SSH traffic to kiosks localhost interface. It is possible to calibrate multiple touchscreen devices which are connected to kiosk.
