A new version of BitKey is out - 14.1

BitKey is a self-contained Live CD/USB key with everything you need to perform highly secure air-gapped Bitcoin transactions. Offline cold storage made (slightly more) practical.

https://bitkey.io/

Changes:

* Refreshed component versions and base OS to Debian Jessie, thanks to
   Yannick Heneault.
* Fixed Electrum issues.
* Manually verified & signed integrity of upstream components
* New Bitcoin apps: warpwallet, coinbin & libbitcoin-explorer (bx)
* New packages: secure-delete, dosfstools (mkfs.vfat)
* Added background color labels to boot modes
* Desktop UX: cut and paste, improved keybindings

Very nice. Grin
So essentially you created a way for people on a budget to own their own ledger nano/Trezor!
Excellent alternative! Wink

It's good for that too, but I own a Trezor and still prefer to use BitKey in ultra paranoid mode for my highest risk transactions:

Bitkey is great and I use it for all my BTC stuff.

Are there extensions or add-ons that add other wallets to the distro?

Thanks, glad you're finding it useful! Regarding extensions, we've it pretty easy to add stuff to the source and rebuild so you can customize that to your needs and then share the changes so we can work that back into the main version if it makes sense.

We're also working on a new version to come out soon that merges some community driven features such as paper wallet support and printing.
