Scientific Linux 5.3 - i386 & x86_64

Scientific Linux 5.3 has been released for both i386 and x86_64 architecture.

March 19, 2009
Scientific Linux release 5.3 has been released for i386 and x86_64.

We want to thank everyone who has contributed, tested, and given us feedback. We say that every time, but we really mean it. Without everyone's help and testing, this release wouldn't be as good as it is.

Intel wireless has been updated and works much better. We have added the iwlwifi 3945, and 5000 ucode (firmware), as well as updated the 4945 ucode.
Scipy has been added to the release, along with fttw and suitesparse to support it. Numpy was already in the release.

Scientific Linux release 5.3 is based on the rebuilding of RPMS out of SRPMS's from Enterprise 5 Server and Client, including Update 3. It also has all errata and bugfixes up until March 17, 2009.
