Scientific Linux 4.5 - x86_64
June 25, 2007
Scientific Linux (SL) release 4.5 for x86_64 has been released.
Scientific Linux 4.5 has been officially released. This release took a little longer because of changes in the installer. Although you cannot use Scientific Linux 4.5 as a Xen virtual host, it can now be installed as a Xen paravirtual guest. This gives a signifigant speed increase over fully virtulized guests.
We want to thank all those tested, retested, contributed, and worked with the developers. We think the Scientific Linux community is one of the best to work with. We hope you enjoy the release.
Scientific Linux release 4.5 is based on the rebuilding of RPMS out of SRPMS's from Enterprise 4 AS, including Update 5.
