Note that CentOS, and Scientific Linux distributions use Red Hat as their base. The latest release of the two forks follows closely the version of RHEL, which is currently on 7.5.
The version we publish today (Scientific Linux 6 build 10), as we mentioned above and can be seen in the above image, is the latest version of 6 as it will continue to support up to 2020.
Scientific Linux 6.10 i386 / x86_64 is the final version of EL6, with major security fixes and critical bug fixes. Please run yum clean expire-cache. More changes from SL 6.9:
The distribution uses the Scientific Linux 6.10 repositories, OpenAFS, updated in 220.127.116.11.
Changes compared to Enterprise 6: httpd changed the default index.html to remove Red Hat branding, Plymouth removed the red colors, and in general all redhat logos disappeared. Background change, GDM and KDM changed the tradedress style, Anaconda added Scientific Linux. DVDs no longer ask for a network unless needed, redhat-rpm-config has changed to recognize Scientific Linux as Enterprise Linux.
For more information read the release release and the releasenotes.
The new version of the distribution is available as a full 5,8GB ISO or in two smaller DVD (ISO) images.
