Release for CentOS Linux 7 (1908) on the x86_64 Architecture We are pleased to announce the general availability of CentOS Linux 7 (1908) for the x86_64 architecture. Effectively immediately, this is the current release for CentOS Linux 7 and is tagged as 1908, derived from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.7 Source Code.
As always, read through the Release Notes at : http://wiki.centos.org/Manuals/ReleaseNotes/CentOS7 - these notes contain important information about the release and details about some of the content inside the release from the CentOS QA team. These notes are updated constantly to include issues and incorporate feedback from the users. ---------- Updates, Sources, and DebugInfos Updates released since the upstream release are all posted, across all architectures. We strongly recommend every user apply all updates, including the content released today, on your existing CentOS Linux 7 machine by just running 'yum update'. As with all CentOS Linux 7 components, this release was built from sources hosted at git.centos.org. In addition, SRPMs that are a byproduct of the build (and also considered critical in the code and buildsys process) are being published to match every binary RPM we release. Sources will be available from vault.centos.org in their own dedicated directories to match the corresponding binary RPMs. Since there is far less traffic to the CentOS source RPMs compared with the binary RPMs, we are not putting this content on the main mirror network. If users wish to mirror this content they can do so using the reposync command available in the yum-utils package. All CentOS source RPMs are signed with the same key used to sign their binary counterparts. Developers and end users looking at inspecting and contributing patches to the CentOS Linux distro will find the code hosted at git.centos.org far simpler to work against. Details on how to best consume those are documented along with a quick start at : http://wiki.centos.org/Sources Debuginfo packages are also being signed and pushed. Yum configs shipped in the new release file will have all the context required for debuginfo to be available on every CentOS Linux install. This release supersedes all previously released content for CentOS Linux 7, and therefore we highly encourage all users to upgrade their machines. Information on different upgrade strategies and how to handle stale content is included in the Release Notes. Note that older content, obsoleted by newer versions of the same applications are trim'd off from repos like Extras/ and Plus/ However this time we have also extended this to the SIG content hosted at mirror.centos.org, and some older End of Life content has been dropped. Everything we ever release, is always available on the vault service for people still looking for and have a real need for it. ---------- Download In order to conserve donor bandwidth, and to make it possible to get the mirror content sync'd out as soon as possible, we recommend using torrents to get your initial installer images: Details on the images are available on the mirrors at http://mirror.centos.org/centos/7/isos/x86_64/0_README.txt - that file clearly highlights the difference in the images, and when one might be more suitable than the others. sha256sum x86_64: ba827210d4eb9313fc19120b9b85e7baef234c7f81bc55847a336114ddac20cb CentOS-7-x86_64-LiveGNOME-1908.iso 9a2c47d97b9975452f7d582264e9fc16d108ed8252ac6816239a3b58cef5c53d CentOS-7-x86_64-Minimal-1908.iso 9bba3da2876cb9fcf6c28fb636bcbd01832fe6d84cd7445fa58e44e569b3b4fe CentOS-7-x86_64-DVD-1908.iso 0ef3310d13f7fc140ec5180dc05369d2f473e802577466825205d17e46ef5a9b CentOS-7-x86_64-LiveKDE-1908.iso bd5e6ca18386e8a8e0b5a9e906297b5610095e375e4d02342f07f32022b13acf CentOS-7-x86_64-Everything-1908.iso 6ffa7ad44e8716e4cd6a5c3a85ba5675a935fc0448c260f43b12311356ba85ad CentOS-7-x86_64-NetInstall-1908.iso Information for the torrent files and sums are available at http://mirror.centos.org/centos/7/isos/x86_64 -------- Additional Images The container, Vagrant, Cloud and Atomic Host images are being prepared and will be released in the next few days. Look for an announcement posted to the centos-announce list for more information on availability for these in the coming days. ---------- Getting Help The CentOS ecosystem is sustained by community driven help and guidance. The best place to start for new users is at http://wiki.centos.org/GettingHelp We are also on social media, you can find the project: on Twitter at : http://twitter.com/CentOSProject on Facebook at : https://www.facebook.com/groups/centosproject/ on LinkedIn at : https://www.linkedin.com/groups/22405 And you will find the core team and a majority of the contributors on irc, on freenode.net in #centos ; talking about the finer points of distribution engineering and platform enablement. ---------- Contributors This release was made possible due to the hard work of many people, foremost on that list are the Red Hat Engineers for producing a great distribution and the CentOS QA team, without them CentOS Linux would look very different. Many of the team went further and beyond expectations to bring this release to you, and I would like to thank everyone for their help. We are also looking for people to get involved with the QA process in CentOS, if you would like to join this please introduce yourself on the centos-devel list (http://lists.centos.org/mailman/listinfo/centos-devel ). Finally, please join me in thanking the donors who all make this possible for us. Enjoy the fresh new release! Thanks, Johnny Hughes
