Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.6 Now Available


In November 2010, Red Hat released a new major version of its operating platform with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. Though Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 is available for customers with extensive new features and enablements, we continue to update our Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 platform through its seven-year lifecycle that extends to 2014. We recognize that many of our customers are still utilizing the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 platform and we continue to enhance this version, as well as earlier versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, to continue providing leading technology and choice to our customers through the full lifecycle of each release.

Red Hat today announced the general availability of the sixth update to its Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 platform to all active subscribers. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.6 provides a broad set of bug and security fixes, new hardware enablement and back-ports of enhancements in areas such as networking, virtualization, web services, security authentication and file systems. The changes introduced in 5.6 include a total of approximately 2,000 individual fixes, as well as approximately 340 individual enhancements and hardware enablement changes.
