The first alpha for Scientific Linux 6.1 has been released. This release has all the new updated packages from the upstream vendors (TUV) update 1. It will install, and it appears to work, but no major testing has been done. Changes from 6.0 (in addition to TUV changes): Shawn Thompson created a whole new graphical theme for Scientific Linux 6 called 'Edge Of Space'; we pulled the fastbugs and testing repositories out of the repository file, they are now in their own RPM called yum-conf-sl-other - this is done to fix the problem of people checking the fastbugs during the install.
Scientific Linux 6.0 LiveCD/DVDs are officially released.
They are available for 32-bit and 64-bit and come with following window managers
LiveMiniCD icewm LiveCD
gnome, icewm LiveDVD
gnome, kde, icewm
Software was added from rpmforge, epel and elrepo (see EXTRA SOFTWARE) to include additional filesystem support (ntfs, reiserfs), more secure network connection (openvpn, vpnc, pptp), and several rescue and filesystem tools (testdisk, dd_rescue, ddrescue, gparted).

The final release only has the same packages that were originally released by upstream vendor, all security and bug-fix errata are in their respective repositories; we have reduced the number of extra packages we put in Scientific Linux 6; there is no 'contrib' repository; we have added several packages to Scientific Linux that are not found anywhere in the upstream release, including IceWM, OpenAFS, Revisor, Live USB Creator, YUM auto-update, external YUM repositories

***CHANGED SINCE ALPHA 5***
*OpenAFS fixed* The selinux openafs problem has been fixed.
*SL_password_for_singleuser fixed* The mechanism to enforce password authentication has changed, that's now configured in /etc/sysconfig/init. This update reflects that change.
*Compiled packages against TUV packages* We have finished the check of our packages against TUV packages. We check files, permissions, scripts, requires, depends, and a few other checks. When there was a discrepancy we rebuilt our package using different parameters to match TUV packages.
