Scientific Linux 7.0 released.

Share this link

Today, Scientific Linux 7.0 is officially released.

In the Scientific Linux 7.0 release notes, two points need attention:

  • The default Scientific Linux 7 installation provides automatic updates via the yum-cron package: because this distribution is often installed by graduate students, it has been decided to reduce the security risks for a novice by applying security updates automatically each night.
  • There is no supported upgrade path from Scientific Linux 6 to Scientific Linux 7: it is a deliberate choice not to take any risk of leaving the system in an intermediate state.

You can download the Scientific Linux 7.0 distribution from now on.
