Red Hat is readying themselves for the Enterprise Linux 4 launch, which is scheduled for release next month.

Sources in the company have indicated that Valentine’s Day is the desired launch date, which is same time period as the LinuxWorld Conference. According to the UK’s ZDNet publication:

“Red Hat has previously indicated that Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 would be based on version 2.6 of the Linux Kernel. A beta version of the product, released in September 2004, was based on the Linux 2.6 kernel. The current version, Enterprise Linux 3, supports some features of the 2.6 kernel, but its kernel core is based on version 2.4.

Adding full support for the updated kernel should allow the operating system to run file systems of more than one terabyte and improve the performance of the input/output subsystem.”

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 will also include security updates from the “US National Security Agency’s Security Enhanced Linux (SELinux) project.”
