Scientific Linux 4.2 - x86_64

Scientific Linux 4.2 is released for the x86_64 architecture.

November 22, 2005
Scientific Linux (SL) release 4.2 for x86_64 has been released.

Scientific Linux 4.2 was officially released. We want to thank all those tested, retested, and worked with the developers. This release might have taken longer than usual to be released, but it hopefully is one of the more stable.

Scientific Linux release 4.2 is based on the rebuilding of RPMS out of SRPMS's from Enterprise 4 AS, including Update 2. It's biggest improvement over 4.1 would be the new Yum 2.4, Yumex (a graphical front end for yum), and the various yum plugins.
