Question When will RH 7.2 be released?

Hello out there!

Just a simple question? Do you know when Red Hat 7.2 will be finally released? I heard something that it will be come with the Kernel 2.4.8.

Also I want to rebuild my server, and I want to take 7.2 for that. :-)

RH7.2 will be released when it is ready!

Advantages over 7.1:
  • More recent software (including Gnome 1.4)
  • Bug fixes
  • Security fixes

they're probably going with the kernel they feel is safer. i think tho, at a certain point compiling(not gcc) the distro, they just need to choose a kernel version and go with it. there's a new one every two weeks or so.

i've been hearing some good things about ext3 - it looks like it will eventually replace ext2 to me.
