"Sure Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 is a stable distribution, but that doesn't mean that it doesn't change and improve - even inside of release cycles. Case in point is Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2 now available as a Beta. The 5.2 release is the second incremental release since RHEL 5 was released in March of 2007 (RHEL 5.1 Beta appeared in August of 2007). With the 5.2 release Red Hat is adding virtualization enhancements including the ability to handle a 64 CPU system. Additionally the critical 'libvirt' technology which helps to manage the virtualization instances now gets remote management support."
