Scientific Linux 7.1 x86_64 RC2 - Apr 7, 2015

== Information ==

NOTE: Please review the SL Release Notes along with
The Upstream Vendor's Release Notes:

http://ftp.scientificlinux.org/linux/scientific/7.1/x86_64/release-notes/

https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/7/index.html

There is a great deal of information within those documents not listed here.

Send comments/issues/test reports to:
SCIENTIFIC-LINUX-USERS@LISTSERV.FNAL.GOV

If no critical issues are reported by April 10, 2015 this Release
Candidate will be released on April 13 as Scientific Linux 7.1

== Media ==
You can find the release media at:
http://ftp.scientificlinux.org/linux/scientific/7.1/x86_64/iso/

NOTE: The 'everything' dvd image requires a Dual-Layer (DL) compatible
drive for both burning and booting off of.

Alternatively the livecd-iso-to-disk utility is able to convert
this to USB successfully. A USB device of sufficient size is
required.

Alternatively you can utilize the dd command to write the
raw image to a USB device.

== SL Specific Updates ==
.Updates to sl-release
Updated to use the 7.1 Release repos

.Updates to sl-indexhtml
Now alters the user agent string of Firefox

.Updated epel-release
The packaged version of epel-release matches that of EPEL once again

.Update sl-logos
The grub boot splash was not always centered as expected leading to odd visuals. This has been corrected.

.IPA customizations
The IPA packages have been customized to remove the upstream links to their support services.

.Added zfs on linux repo
Per community request, you can now install the ZFS on Linux yum repo via 'yum install yum-conf-zfsonlinux'

== UEFI Secure Boot ==
The status of UEFI Secure Boot for Scientific Linux is noted in detail at:

http://ftp.scientificlinux.org/linux/scientific/7/x86_64/release-notes/#_about_uefi_secure_boot

Booting SL7 with Secure Boot enabled works but requires a manual step.
This is because the "shim" has not been signed by the UEFI CA.
Instructions are included within the SL7 Release Notes.

The best way to get my attention is over the official lists.
