RHEL 5.2 (Tikanga) Released

| Comments

Earlier this week, RedHat has announced the second minor update to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5: RHEL5.2. I was not able to update the rhel5 systems I manage until Friday, when this has become available in the update channels:

cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.2 (Tikanga)

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2 enhancements are primarily focused in six areas:

  • Virtualization
  • Laptop and Desktop improvements
  • Encryption and Security
  • Cluster & Storage Enhancements
  • Networking & IPv6 Enablement
  • Serviceability

“Update brings broad refresh of hardware support and improved quality, combined with new features and enhancements in areas such as virtualization, desktop, networking, storage & clustering and security”
