Mac Linux USB Loader v3.1 Beta Released w/ Kali Linux Support

Hello, everyone. Long time no see. I am happy to announce the release of the Mac Linux USB Loader 3.1 beta. This is strictly pre-release, and I do not recommend upgrading unless you have some experience dealing with beta software.
The pre-release contains the following changes from the current version:
  • Updated to include version 0.3.0 of Enterprise, also a pre-release
  • Added support for two languages, Spanish and Dutch
  • Removed unnecessary menu options from the menu bar
  • The Enterprise source location editor in the Preferences dialog now shows localized paths to the Enterprise source
  • Enterprise sources can now be renamed (except the default)
  • Write the new Enterprise configuration file format
  • Fixes for users with case-sensitive file systems
  • Updated Ubuntu and Elementary OS version support (mirrors for these distributions will be available upon the final release of this version)
  • Kali Linux support

And finally (drumroll please)…
The final version should be shipping very soon. Please take this opportunity to try and report any bugs which you might find.
Note about Kali: There are bugs in the current version of Kali which stop it from working on older Macs with nVidia graphics cards. I am in touch with the Kali developers and we are working to fix the problem.
Click here to download the beta and feel free to contact me and donate to the project.

Hi, will your program support Debian in the future ?
Thanks in advance for your reply.

@Anonymous: Mac Linux USB Loader will probably have better support for Debian in the next release, coming soon.

I can't make persistence work in version 3.2 with Kali. I made the live drive for Kali, then added persistence with the persistence manager at size 512 MB. It boots fine, and I am manually selecting persistence as a boot option, but it doesn't save the state of my Kali after I add drivers etc. What am I doing wrong?
