We are pleased to announce the availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux
5.11, the final minor release of the mature Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 platform. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.11 reiterates Red Hat’s commitment to a 10-year product lifecycle for all major Red Hat Enterprise Linux releases and offers a secure, stable, and reliable platform for critical enterprise applications.

 
In addition to security and stability enhancements, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.11 provides additional updates to subscription management, debugging capabilities, and more, including: * New storage drivers - Updates that provide customers with the benefits of some of the latest storage adapters from Red Hat hardware partners. * Enhancements to Red Hat Access Support’s debugging capabilities - Red Hat Access Support makes it easier for customers to manage, diagnose, and engage with Red Hat directly through a console within Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
 * Improvements for Red Hat Enterprise Linux guests running on VMWare ESXi.
* More information from subscription management services that makes managing subscriptions easier through both the GUI and command line. * Updates OpenSCAP to version 1.0.8, certified by the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP) 1.2 in the Authenticated Configuration Scanner category with the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposure (CVE) option. The new certification adds Red Hat to a short list of vendors qualified for the complex SCAP standard, making OpenSCAP and Red Hat important factors in the security space. With this new certification, openscap 1.0.8 can run SCAP content correctly written to the 1.2 standard from any source, such as the Red Hat Security Response Team's Open Vulnerability and Assessment Language (OVAL) content, DISA's Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIG), the National Vulnerability Database (NVD) OVAL repository, and others.
