Linux 4.18
Linux was updated to the 4.18.10 version, and linux 4.19 will be released soon.
Firefox 63

Wine menu
Has been fixed a bug in the parrot menu configuration that prevented several menu categories to show up.
This fixed the missing wine menu bug, which is now back again.
Bashrc updates
The Parrot .bashrc file was updated, now it provides better snap support, the ll alias now shows the size in a human readable format and it does no longer overwrite some global settings as it used to do before.
Java 11

Anonsurf
Anonsurf received important stability upgrades and now it does not mess up the DNS configuration.
New Parrot icons
The Parrot edition of the MAIA icon theme was updated.

Core updates
Parrot 4.3 provides the latest updates of Debian Testing and many improvements to our sandbox system, in fact, both firejail and apparmor received significant updates, and now the whole system is smoother, more secure and more reliable.
