The CentOS Atomic SIG has released an updated version
( of
CentOS Atomic Host (7.1802), a lean operating system designed to run
Linux containers, built from standard CentOS 7 RPMs, and tracking the
component versions included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host.

This release rolls up all package minor updates that shipped through
the month of February, including, most significantly, a newer version
of rpm-ostree with support for overriding base packages during package
layering operations. (see below for more details)

CentOS Atomic Host includes these core component versions:

* atomic-1.20.1-9.git436cf5d.el7.centos.x86_64
* cloud-init-0.7.9-9.el7.centos.2.x86_64
* docker-1.12.6-71.git3e8e77d.el7.centos.1.x86_64
* etcd-3.2.11-1.el7.x86_64
* flannel-0.7.1-2.el7.x86_64
* kernel-3.10.0-693.17.1.el7.x86_64
* kubernetes-node-1.5.2-0.7.git269f928.el7.x86_64
* ostree-2017.14-2.el7.x86_64
* rpm-ostree-client-2017.11-1.atomic.el7.x86_64

rpm-ostree override

While it's been possible to layer new packages onto the base CentOS
Atomic tree for some time now, overriding existing base packages with
layered alternatives either wasn't possible or was considered
experimental. Version 7.1802 now allows for overriding base packages.

For example, the origin-clients package that includes OpenShift
Origin's "oc" tool conflicts with the kubernetes-client package
included in the base tree. You can use package layering and overrides
to install the openshift-release rpm, remove the conflicting rpms, and
install the origin-clients rpm:

# rpm-ostree install centos-release-openshift-origin
# rpm-ostree override remove kubernetes-client kubernetes-node -r

# rpm-ostree install origin-clients -r

# oc cluster up
Starting OpenShift using openshift/origin:v3.7.0 ...
Pulling image openshift/origin:v3.7.0

Release Cycle

The CentOS Atomic Host image follows the upstream Red Hat Enterprise
Linux Atomic Host cadence. After sources are released, they're rebuilt
and included in new images. After the images are tested by the SIG and
deemed ready, we announce them.

Getting Involved

CentOS Atomic Host is produced by the CentOS Atomic SIG
(, based on
upstream work from Project Atomic ( If
you'd like to work on testing images, help with packaging,
