Excitement is building in the SnoopGod Linux community as we prepare for the upcoming release of SnoopGod 24.04, codenamed "Noble Numbat". Scheduled for the end of April 2024, this release promises a host of enhancements and updates that will further solidify SnoopGod's position as a leading platform for ethical hacking and cybersecurity.

A Look at SnoopGod 24.04

As another April approaches, we anticipate the arrival of the latest iteration of SnoopGod Linux. Following the tradition of biannual releases, SnoopGod enthusiasts eagerly await the unveiling of the April build, which is complemented by an October release.

Every two years, the April release of SnoopGod Linux marks a Long-Term Support (LTS) version, ensuring five years of support and updates from Canonical, the parent company of Ubuntu. For users subscribed to Ubuntu Pro, which is free for home users, the support period extends to an impressive 10 years. Additionally, users have the option to purchase an additional two years of support, extending the total support period to 12 years.

What's New in "Noble Numbat"

"Noble Numbat" brings a plethora of improvements and new features to the SnoopGod ecosystem. One notable highlight is the introduction of a modernized installer, boasting a sleek and uncluttered interface. Alongside aesthetic enhancements, the installer incorporates changes to existing screens and introduces new screens to streamline the installation process.

Security remains a top priority in "Noble Numbat" following recent concerns about the xz compression library's malicious backdoor. Canonical took proactive measures by delaying the beta release of 24.04 to rebuild all binaries, ensuring a clean release free from vulnerabilities.

The kernel in SnoopGod 24.04 introduces significant enhancements, including the adoption of the Earliest Eligible Virtual Deadline First (EEVDF) CPU scheduler, replacing the existing Completely Fair Scheduler (CFS). This new scheduler, based on academic research from the late 1990s and early 2000s, reduces latency in specific scenarios, enhancing overall performance.

Furthermore, CPU support sees notable improvements, with enhancements for both Intel and AMD processors. Virtualization capabilities receive a boost, with KVM now supporting up to 4096 virtual CPUs and the addition of nested virtual machines for IBM POWER processors.

Security features are strengthened with the introduction of Intel Shadow Stack support, allowing processes to verify return addresses for potential attacks detection. Additionally, Ubuntu packages are now built with security-hardening features, rendering many vulnerabilities unexploitable right out of the box.


Conclusion

SnoopGod 24.04 ships with updated software versions, including the kernel (6.8.0-22-generic), Firefox (124.0.2), Files (46.0), GCC (13.2.0), and others. These updates ensure compatibility with the latest technologies and security standards, providing users with a robust and reliable platform for their ethical hacking and cybersecurity needs.

As we eagerly anticipate the release of SnoopGod 24.04 "Noble Numbat", the SnoopGod Linux community remains committed to delivering a cutting-edge operating system that empowers ethical hackers and cybersecurity professionals worldwide. Stay tuned for more updates and announcements as we approach the release date and continue our journey towards a safer and more secure digital future.
