This page is to give a overview of what releases Scientific Linux Fermi has released, and what they plan on releasing. It also gives the support periods for each of these releases.

Support Statement

Scientific Linux Fermi plans to do security updates for at least 4 years from the initial release of the Vendors Enterprise product. When we get close to the end of that four years we will make a more exact date.

* - release of SLF 5.6 depends on when the Vendors Enterprise Update 6 comes out.
** - At the time of this writting we do not know how many releases of S.L. 5.x we will be doing.

There is a caveat to the above roadmaps. This is just a plan. We do not, and cannot, guarantee our plan. There are too many factors for us to guarantee it. One of the possibilities is that the source rpm's from the Vendors Enterprise release will become unavailable. There are other factors that also may prevent a guarantee.
