Version 4.1.3 is built on CentOS 5 with glibc 2.5.

We use the latest CentOS 5, so this would be CentOS 5.11. But binaries 
will work on all the CentOS 5.x series and everything newer than it 
(which basically means any modern, non-modern and even quite old 
Linux-based desktop system).

For the current 4.1.x series the baseline is so far going to stay CentOS 
5.x; I expect we may want to revise this after 4.1.4 is released, but 
for the moment this was not discussed.

They will need glibc >= 2.5; this requirement is deliberately chosen  so 
that it is satisfied by virtually all Linux-based desktop systems 
available today.
