Updated environment-modules packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The environment-modules packages provide for the dynamic modification of user environment using module files. Each module file contains the information needed to configure the shell for an application. Once the package is initialized, the environment can be modified on a per-module basis using the module command which interprets module files.

Bug Fixes

Previously, misleading information about available modules in nested module directories was displayed to the user. To fix this bug, the code detecting module versions has been amended, and correct information is now displayed.
Prior to this update, modules were not properly unloaded when a loading module file contained the "module unload" command. With this update, the logic in the code for version detection of modules has been modified, and modules that contain the "module unload" command are now unloaded correctly.
Users of environment-modules are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
