Scientific Linux 7.0 RC1 Has Finally Arrived
While the Scientific 7 Alpha came not too long after the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.0 release, today we're finally seeing the release candidate -- long after CentOS 7.0 was released as the other popular community-based RHEL alternative.
Pat Riehecky announced Scientific Linux 7.0 Release Candidate 1 on Friday, "Fermilab's intention is to continue the development and support of Scientific Linux and refine its focus as an operating system for scientific computing. Today we are announcing a release candidate of Scientific Linux 7. We continue to develop a stable process for generating and distributing Scientific Linux, with the intent that Scientific Linux remains the same high quality operating system the community has come to expect."
As soon as the official release is out I'll work on a new EL 7.0 benchmarking round up, while for now you can see some of the early numbers from July.
