NST Version 20-5663 Released

We are pleased to announce the latest NST release: "NST 20 SVN:5663". This release is based on Fedora 20 using Linux Kernel: "3.12.10-300.fc20". Significant effort has been devoted to bringing this release on par with Fedora 20. Starting with NST 20, the "Mate" Desktop is now the preferred desktop.

Here are some of the highlights for this release:
* Added a new drag zoom feature to the "NST Ntopng IPv4 Hosts" application. Ntopng is a network traffic probe used for high-speed web-based traffic analysis and flow collection. This drag zoom feature implements a traditional method for zooming in on a particular area of interest on Google Maps by positioning and sizing a zoom rectangle with the mouse. One can easily use this feature to zoom into an area of clustered Ntopng IPv4 Hosts for further investigation which is depicted in this Annotated Image.
* Integration of the "Mate Desktop" and the "LightDM GTK Desktop" login screen greeter are now the preferred defaults for NST.
* Added a new NST WUI page for the network utility script: "getipaddr".
* Added a new "Network Interface Renaming" mode to the NST script: "nstnetcfg" that creates Predictable Network Interface Names which will survive each system reboot. This capability is beneficial to an NST system equipped with multiple Network Interface adapters.
* Integration of "IPv4 Alias Address Management" into the NST script: "nstnetcfg" that allows for the creation and removal of IPv4 Alias Addresses.
* A number of new articles on getting NST 20 up and running on a system have been written at the NST Wiki site:
* Upgrade to NST 20
* NST 20 Getting Started
* NST 20 Hard Disk Installation
* Copying ISO Images To USB
* As always, the networking and security applications included have been updated to their latest version which can be found in the manifest.
* For more details related to the code changes for this release, refer to the "Change Log" page.
