Scientific Linux 3.0.9
Scientific Linux 3.0.9 for i386 was released on October 12, 2007.
Scientific Linux 3.0.9 for x86_64 was released on October 12, 2007.
Scientific Linux 309 is our last release of the Scientific Linux 3 series. We gave it the codename "Legacy". It is designed for those machines that still have legacy programs on them and cannot move to a newer version of Scientific Linux.
SL 309 will have a longer support life than the other SL 3 releases, but it also will be missing some of the added programs that were put into earlier releases of SL 3. The most visible packages removed were firefox and thunderbird. Here is the full list of programs removed, as well as the full list of what is still in it.
Scientific Linux release 3.0.9 is based on the rebuilding of RPMS out of SRPMS's from Enterprise 3 AS, including Update 9, as well as all errata and bugfixes up until October 12, 2007.
