Scientific Linux 5.1 - i386 & x86_64

Scientific Linux 5.1 is released for both i386 and x86_64 architecture.

January 16, 2008
Scientific Linux release 5.1 i386 and x86_64 has been released.

Scientific Linux 5.1 is finally out. This release has the ability to easily make sites (customized Scientifc Linux distributions). The ability to make sites was missing from SL 5.0. We also managed to add back some of those packages that didn't make it into SL 5.0, as well as a few packages new for this release.

As always we want to thank everyone who has helped with the creation of this release. Thank you to all those who contributed packages, gave us patches, found bugs, tested, and gave us encouragement. We've said it before, and it is still true, the Scientific Linux community is great to work with.

Scientific Linux release 5.1 is based on the rebuilding of RPMS out of SRPMS's from Enterprise 5 Server and Client, including Update 1. It also all errata and bugfixes up until January 16, 2008.
