ïThe Red Hat Network (RHN) Satellite team is pleased to announce the general availability of RHN Satellite and Proxy version 5.2 as of November 5, 2008.

Primarily a platform update, the major highlights of this release include:

* Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 platform support
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 is now supported as a base operating system for RHN Proxy and RHN Satellite Server installation, as well as Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

* Oracle 10g support
Satellite now supports Oracle Database 10g Release 2 Standard and Enterprise Edition. Oracle 10g provides better performance, especially on 64-bit platforms.

Since these are major platform releases, be sure to review the system requirements section of the Satellite documentation which can be found at http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/satellite/.

Other major highlights include:

* RHN Proxy Server command line installer - Technology Preview
A Technology Preview feature is one that is currently not supported under the RHN Proxy Server subscription service, may not be functionally complete, and is generally not suitable for production use. However, this feature is included as a customer convenience and to provide the feature with wider exposure. Customers may find this feature useful in a non-production environment. Customers are also free to provide feedback and functionality suggestions for this feature before it becomes fully supported in the RHN Proxy Server 5.3 release. Errata may be provided for high-severity issues.

* db-control improvements:
* gather-stats - Gather statistics on RHN Oracle database objects
* report-stats - Show tables with stale or empty statistics
* shrink-segments - Shrink RHN Oracle database segments

* Bug fixes and documentation updates
