SL 6.1 has 1.6.0rc4, and it's in 6.0 fastbugs too.

I'll try to get 1.6.1 accepted into fastbugs once it's released and had =
a bit of testing. This extra repository is available for the current SL =
release only though (thus, 6.1 right now). It should also be in SL 6.2 =
(upstream beta was announced yesterday).

In general, "yum update" will give you security fixes only. Other bug =
fixes and feature releases are provided with SL minor releases.

If you'd like to follow OpenAFS releases more closely while using the SL =
packages, let's discuss this on the sl-users or sl-devel list. It's =
unlikely that the policy as described above will be changed, but we =
could certainly find a way to make it possible.
