The main changes for this week are a couple of important security updates, one for openssl on SL7 and one for the kernel on Ubuntu. Here are the full details…

An updated version of the latest stable release – 2022011701b – has just been pushed out. The only difference is that the INF_TEST kernel for Ubuntu is now the latest version – 5.4.0-96.109 – which resolves a high priority security issue.

A range of changes this week but nothing with a particularly big impact. The most noteworthy changes are the end of support for SL7.8 and, for DICE servers, the new DHCP domain-name support. Here are the full details…

This is a reminder that we will not be providing any further support for SL7.8. Please note that this means we will not be updating the security updates package lists for that platform. To continue receiving important updates for SL7 systems they should be updated to SL7.9 or migrated to Ubuntu Focal.

This is the first release of 2022, happy new year! Although it has been almost a month since the previous release, due to the Christmas vacation, there are very few significant changes. Here are the full details…

The final release for 2021 is a fairly small one and most sites will notice little change beyond the usual collection of security updates. Here are the details…

As usual we will not be making regular releases over the Christmas vacation. We expect the final LCFG release for 2021 to go out on Wednesday 15th December. The first release of 2022 should go out on Wednesday 12th January.

This release constitutes 2 weeks of changes rather than the usual 1 so appears somewhat larger than normal. Having said that, there are no individual changes which we expect to have a particularly big impact. Here are all the details…

The main changes for this week are kernel and openafs updates for both platforms. Here are the full details…
