Release for CentOS Linux 8 (2011) We are pleased to announce the general availability of CentOS Linux 8. Effectively immediately, this is the current release for CentOS Linux 8 and is tagged as 2011, derived from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.3 Source Code.
As always, read through the Release Notes at: http://wiki.centos.org/Manuals/ReleaseNotes/CentOS8.2011 - 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 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 8 machine by just running 'dnf update'. As with all CentOS Linux 8 components, this release was built from sources hosted at git.centos.org. 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/dnf-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 have been 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 8, 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 centosplus/ ---------- Download We produced the following installer images for CentOS Linux 8 # CentOS-8.3.2011-x86_64-boot.iso: 716177408 bytes SHA256 (CentOS-8.3.2011-x86_64-boot.iso) = 2b801bc5801816d0cf27fc74552cf058951c42c7b72b1fe313429b1070c3876c # CentOS-8.3.2011-x86_64-dvd1.iso: 9264168960 bytes SHA256 (CentOS-8.3.2011-x86_64-dvd1.iso) = aaf9d4b3071c16dbbda01dfe06085e5d0fdac76df323e3bbe87cce4318052247 # CentOS-8.3.2011-aarch64-boot.iso: 636792832 bytes SHA256 (CentOS-8.3.2011-aarch64-boot.iso) = b87fc578c53b541229883d391d1299b9d2a051c1f33dc15052dc42ed941600a9 # CentOS-8.3.2011-aarch64-dvd1.iso: 6792984576 bytes SHA256 (CentOS-8.3.2011-aarch64-dvd1.iso) = ecf586b30fa16b28a33b2fb4ffadd8801201608f9755c94da1212876d32fba92 # CentOS-8.3.2011-ppc64le-boot.iso: 686874624 bytes SHA256 (CentOS-8.3.2011-ppc64le-boot.iso) = 13ebdc5ecdfc316fa4528f3bc4d896ca32745af65766bd84ece37e10d87f8e9e # CentOS-8.3.2011-ppc64le-dvd1.iso: 7887482880 bytes SHA256 (CentOS-8.3.2011-ppc64le-dvd1.iso) = a56fc1039534155253ca412fcd8e0293e6f67fd92c526a8b754309578140dff6 Information for the torrent files and sums are available at http://mirror.centos.org/centos/8/isos/ -------- Additional Images Vagrant and Generic Cloud images are available at: http://cloud.centos.org/centos/8/ Amazon Machine Images for Amazon Web Services are published by ID into a number of regions.

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!
