First and foremost, Porteus Kiosk 4.5.0 bumps the Linux kernel version from the long-term supported Linux 4.9 series, which was used in the previous release, to the Linux 4.12 branch, shipping with Linux kernel 4.12.10 by default, thus adding an extra layer of hardware support to the free and open-source kiosk operating system for public access computers.
As expected from a kiosk software, Porteus Kiosk 4.5.0 also updates the main web browsing components, shipping with Mozilla Firefox 52.3.0 ESR and Google Chrome 60.0.3112.113. On top of that, the new release adds support for the EAPoL (EAP over LAN) authentication on wired connections, as well as support for email notifications to the Porteus Kiosk Server component.
