CentOS team has announced the general availability of CentOS Linux 7 -1511 for 64 bit x86 compatible machines. This is the third major release for CentOS Linux 7 and is tagged as 1511, derived from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2. Updates released since we froze the iso and install media content are posted in the updates repo along with the release. This will include content from late November 2015 and December 2015, therefore anyone running a new install is highly encouraged to run a ‘yum update’ operation immediate on install completion.
CentOS 7 Linux is now available for the 64bit AArch64 hardware architecture. This latest release will available to the community for testing and consumption sometime next week. According to Jim Perrin of Seven.Centos :- There are some differences with a traditional CentOS install that users wishing to experiment should keep in mind. Because AArch64 hardware is still very new, this build requires a newer kernel that we’ll be patching fairly regularly with help from the community as well as various vendors.
The CentOS Project Team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of CentOS 7 for x86_64, including images for docker, and various cloud providers. This is the first release for CentOS-7 and is version marked as 7.0-1406. CentOS is an Enterprise-class Linux Distribution derived from sources freely provided to the public by Red Hat. For the first time, this release was built from sources hosted at git.centos.org, however srpms being a byproduct of the build and also considered critical in the code and buildsys process are being published to match every rpm we release.
