ClearOS Enterprise 5.1 Release Candidate 1 Release Information

Released: December 5, 2009

The final release of ClearOS Enterprise 5.1 is just around the corner! This release candidate has all the features available and is ready for limited production use. The last items that are still outstanding:

  • ClearSDN registration and services are active in the release candidate, but we have not yet opened up registrations to the general public.
  • The console and graphical console tool are certainly functional, but we will likely make some usability changes.
