New in version 5.10 (October 19th, 2013)

  • CentOS-5.10 is based on the upstream release EL 5.10 and includes packages from all variants including Server and Client. All upstream repositories have been combined into one, to make it easier for end users to work with.

New in version 4.9 (March 3rd, 2011)

  • This version has bugfixes, feature enhancements, and new hardware support. There are no new ISO images for this release. Installs moving forward will be off the 4.8 media and an upgrade will move you from version 4.8 to version 4.9. This is done to maintain compatibility with third party kernel drivers, which are designed to be installed as part of the installation process.

New in version 4.8 (August 22nd, 2009)

  • This release corresponds to the upstream vendor U8 release. Also released in the updates repository for CentOS-4.8 are all updates through August 20th, 2009.

New in version 4.7 (September 13th, 2008)

  • This release corresponds to the upstream vendor 4.7 release. Also released in the updates repository for CentOS 4.7 are all updates through September 12th, 2008. Major changes for this version are: password hashing using the SHA-256 and SHA-512 hash functions is now supported; this update implements the use of paravirtualized block device and network drivers, which improve the performance of fully-virtualized guests; there is a technology preview of OpenOffice.org 2.0 included in the updates directory; Firefox is now rebased to version 3.0.x.
