ClearOS Enterprise 5.1 Release Candidate 2 Release Candidate Information

Released: December 17, 2009

The final release of ClearOS Enterprise 5.1 is just around the corner! The console tool has been completed and you can now easily install/uninstall the graphical (X-based) plugin. Along with the usual bug fixes, we also tracked down the cause of the extreme slowness in some network configurations.

This second release candidate has all the features available and is ready for production use. The ClearCenter registration, ClearCARE support, and ClearSDN services are currently in beta and active in this release candidate.

If you have not already done so, please review the introduction to test releases.
