Troy Dawson has announced the availability of the second (and likely last) release candidate for Scientific Linux 5.6: "Scientific Linux 5.6 RC2 is now available. We have pushed out the latest update to Scientific Linux 5.6. There are both network install images as well as CD and DVD images. If there are no problems, this will be the final release, there will be no further changes. Changed since RC1: GDM Login screen background was changed to have the 'Atom Shine' blue background. After four years the 'EaseOfBlue' GDM theme is now blue; release notes and READMEs were updated; on the distribution servers everything is copied over to the 56 directory, there should be no links pointing to 5rolling. If there are no problems we expect to release Scientific Linux 5.6 on Tuesday 21 June 2011." The release announcement.
