Red Hat issues Enterprise Linux 4.7

,----[ Quote ]
| Red Hat has released the seventh revision of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4,
| RHEL4 for short, which is aimed at corporate customers. The release contains
| large number of bug fixes and a lot of small improvements. In line with RHEL
| 5.2, RHEL 4.7 now uses Firefox 3. RHEL 4.7 also provides "para-virtualized"
| drivers. These drivers allow RHEL 4.7, when running as a guest in a
| paravirtualized environment as such as Xen, to access the virtualised
| hardware without any emulation. This in turn increases I/O throughput and
| reduces the load on the CPU.
