Scientific Linux 5.4 - i386 & x86_64

Scientific Linux 5.4 has been released for both i386 and x86_64 architecture.

November 4, 2009
Scientific Linux release 5.4 has been released for i386 and x86_64.

There are packages that we used to have to add to Scientific Linux, that are now already in Enterprise 5, and so we do not have to add them ourselves. Fuse, and it's kernel modules, are now provided by The Upstream Vendor (TUV). The Atheros wireless chipset is now supported by TUV.
We have added the iwlwifi 5150 ucode (firmware), as well as updated the 3945, 4945, and 5000 ucode. Lua has been also been added to the release.
For the full list of what we have added, or updated, please see the release notes.

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.

Scientific Linux release 5.4 is based on the rebuilding of RPMS out of SRPMS's from Enterprise 5 Server and Client, including Update 4. It also has all errata and bugfixes up until November 1, 2009.
