Hard on the heels of rPath Linux 0.99.4 comes an update that includes primarily security updates; new Firefox, Mozilla, and Poppler have several security vulnerabilities addressed.

rPath provides rBuilder and rPath Linux, the first platform for creating and maintaining software appliances. Software appliances bring the simplicity and value of Software as a Service (SaaS) to on-premise application deployments.

The Problem
The proliferation of software packages (both infrastructure and applications), hardware components, and unique customer requirements has created an impossibly complex integration problem for application providers. Conflicting maintenance streams, release schedules, licensing terms, and service conditions create customer service headaches and unacceptable engineering expenses. We call this problem the ?Matrix of Pain."

The Solution
The license freedom provided by open source infrastructure offers application providers the historic opportunity to deliver a complete solution to their customers ? freeing their application from the ?Matrix of Pain?. Using the rBuilder platform, developers can wrap their application with rPath Linux and related open source components in a tightly integrated, high performing manner. The resulting software appliance includes an installer and a maintenance mechanism that simplifies deployment and management to literally a few clicks of a mouse. Customers get application benefit without software hassles, the hallmark of Software as a Service (SaaS).

Hard on the heels of rPath Linux 0.99.4 comes an update that includes primarily security updates; new firefox, mozilla, and poppler have several security vulnerabilities addressed.
