    Should just be a 'yum update' away. The point releases are when they include big changes and also when they release ISO's (in the case of CentOS and Scientific) so that you have the most up to date packages and dont have to 'yum update' for 6hours to get everything up to latest

    Any news on the PHP version they are shipping? The 5.3.3 build on red hat 6.3 is so old and full of bugs I can't stand it.

    PHP version in Red Hat 6.x will stay the same trough the entire life cycle of the product. If you stumble on an actual bug (other then PHP itself), report it trough Red Hat's bugzilla and it will get fixed.

    That being said, if you don't know about backporting and this feature is not why you choose to run Red Hat Enterprise Linux in the first place, than you would probably be better off running something else... like Windows.

    You sure it doesn't have backported patches? RHEL packages are usually quite removed from mainline releases...
