We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of CentOS Linux 6.8 and install media for i386 and x86_64 Architectures. Release Notes for 6.8 are available at:  http://wiki.centos.org/Manuals/ReleaseNotes/CentOS6.8  We recommend everyone review these release notes.  CentOS Linux 6.8 is derived from source code released by Red Hat, Inc. for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.8. All upstream variants have been placed into one combined repository to make it easier for end users. Workstation, server, and minimal installs can all be done from our combined repository. All of our testing is only done against this combined distribution.  There are many fundamental changes in this release, compared with the past CentOS Linux 6 releases, and we highly recommend everyone study the upstream Release Notes as well as the upstream Technical Notes about the changes and how they might impact your installation. (See the 'Further Reading' section if the CentOS release notes link above).  All updates since the upstream 6.8 release are also on the CentOS mirrors as zero day updates. When installing CentOS-6.8 (or any other version) from any of our media, you should always run 'yum update' after the install to apply these.  Users consuming our centos-cr repositories will already be running all the packages that make up CentOS-6.8, and all updates released since. They will notice only the centos-release and anaconda updates today when moving to CentOS Linux 6.8. For more information on the CR repository for future updates, see this link: http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories/CR  Release Announcements for all updated packages are available here: http://bit.ly/1WOy3dB  +++++++++++++++++++++++ Upgrading From Prior Major CentOS Versions:  We recommend everyone perform a fresh reinstall rather than attempt an inplace upgrade from other major CentOS versions (CentOS-2.1, CentOS-3.x, CentOS-4.x, CentOS-5.x).  +++++++++++++++++++++++ Upgrading from CentOS-6.0 / 6.1 / 6.2 / 6.3 / 6.4 / 6.5 / 6.6 or 6.7  CentOS Linux is designed to automatically upgrade between releases within a major version (in this case, CentOS-6). Unless you have edited your yum default configuration, a 'yum update' should move your machines seamlessly from any previous CentOS Linux 6.x release to 6.8. We also test this in our QA cycles and have noticed no problems, any issues would be mentioned in the Release Notes.  +++++++++++++++++++++++ Downloading CentOS Linux 6.8 for new installs:  When possible, consider using torrents to obtain our ISOs. Usually it is also the fastest means to download the distro.  The install media is split into various formats. We have made efforts to ensure that most install types and roles can be done from DVD-1 itself, and the minimal install ISO is only tested to deliver a minimal install set, when used as an ISO format ( either on cd or usb ). While other forms of installs ( eg. pxe delivered ) might work from the minimal ISO, they are neither tested not supported. The only format where we support the entire set of install options and delivery mechanisms is via the complete CentOS Linux 6.8 tree, wihch can also be created by consolidating all content from DVD1 and DVD2.  We no longer produce CD size images for the entire CentOS Linux 6 distribution, however the minimal install and netinstall iso images are small enough to fit on all CD grade media.  Torrent files for the DVD's are available at : http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6.8/isos/i386/CentOS-6.8-i386-bin-DVD1to2.torrent http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6.8/isos/x86_64/CentOS-6.8-x86_64-bin-DVD1to2.torrent  You can also use a mirror close to you to get any of our ISOs: http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6.8/isos/  If you need to update a local mirror, you can choose from our mirror network http://www.centos.org/download/mirrors/ Most mirrors will allow downloads over http, ftp and rsync.  Note: The x86_64 ISOs (minimal, netinstall, DVD1) should install on UEFI machines. Secure Boot must be disabled to install CentOS 6. The Live ISOs and i386 ISOs will not boot with UEFI.  +++++++++++++++++++++++ sha256sum for the CentOS-6.8 ISOS:  i386: 720d185fdf063383a4471657076b72fc162d3c3c3bca2e5e5ae13a25b3046519  CentOS-6.8-i386-bin-DVD1.iso  0c1a498a469214f276b4390a9ac2111fe8eb89084f7921d2eced659ada09e1a9  CentOS-6.8-i386-bin-DVD2.iso  7df6c27c0cd1186845bee4e786d43dbd3ae429258098283f9dbc2b2d20ed6a89  CentOS-6.8-i386-LiveCD.iso  7e2ace104901921ac919a390be827251727dfd04437fbd4e4d3024b6d70d8718  CentOS-6.8-i386-LiveDVD.iso  f4cf0614cc2ac451ffec5bd349ee74a1b31fd394e58561a07c38a21be5a4bdeb  CentOS-6.8-i386-minimal.iso  1668434d76e14a45a189b7810582e7e6ded686854f75b7f8ba053830a5706e57  CentOS-6.8-i386-netinstall.iso  x86_64: dda55622614a8b43b448a72f87d6cb7f79de1eff49ee8c5881a7d9db28d4e35  CentOS-6.8-x86_64-bin-DVD1.iso  0aba869427b4ce04e100d72744daf7fea1f7be2e4be56b658095bd9e99e04e6d  CentOS-6.8-x86_64-bin-DVD2.iso  efa82d673206cb6af377b1f929a510cc2b1ce95cdb436210121ec271e056c920  CentOS-6.8-x86_64-LiveCD.iso  52a9c8c1d250de39976dda9412293473b8349efefb31b66fecdee0fdf93866d9  CentOS-6.8-x86_64-LiveDVD.iso  ec49c297d484b9da0787e5944edc38f7c70f21c0f6a60178d8e9a8926d1949f4  CentOS-6.8-x86_64-minimal.iso  56d9cc5757ed1443af7b321967622a108978328f72e58050d31bcf1998dfd162  CentOS-6.8-x86_64-netinstall.iso  +++++++++++++++++++++++ Cloud Images:  Images for various on-premise and off-premise Cloud environments are currently under development for CentOS Linux 6.8 and will be released in the coming days. Everyone looking to join and help with the CentOS Cloud efforts is encouraged to join the CentOS-devel list where such issues are discussed ( http://lists.centos.org/mailman/listinfo/centos-devel ).  +++++++++++++++++++++++ Getting Help:  The best place to start when looking for help with CentOS is at the wiki ( http://wiki.centos.org/GettingHelp ) which lists various options and communities who might be able to help. If you think there is a bug in the system, do report it at http://bugs.centos.org/ - but keep in mind that the bugs system is *not* a support mechanism. If you need supported software with Support Level Agreements, people to call and response times then we recommend Red Hat Enterprise Linux.  If you have questions you would like to field at us in real time, come join the office hours on Wed or Thu of every week. You can find details on these at http://wiki.centos.org/OfficeHours  +++++++++++++++++++++++ Meet-ups and Events:  If you would like to get involved in helping organize, run, present or sponsor a CentOS Dojo or even just want more details then join the CentOS Promo list: http://lists.centos.org/mailman/listinfo/centos-promo and drop an email introducing yourself. We are very keen to find help to run events around the world, and also to find people who can represent CentOS at various community events around the world.  +++++++++++++++++++++++ Contributing and joining the project:  We are always looking for people to join and help with various things in the project. If you are keen to help out a good place to start is the wiki page at http://wiki.centos.org/Contribute . If you have questions or a specific area you would like to contribute towards that is not covered on that page, feel free to drop in on #centos-devel at irc.freenode.net for a chat or email the centos-devel list (http://lists.centos.org).  +++++++++++++++++++++++ Thanks to everyone who contributed towards making CentOS Linux 6.8, especially the effort put in, as always, by the QA (http://wiki.centos.org/QaGroup) and Build teams.  A special shout out to all the donors who have contributed hardware, network connectivity, hosting and resources over the years. The CentOS project now has a fairly well setup resource pool, solely thanks to the donors.  Enjoy!  -- Johnny Hughes CentOS Project { http://www.centos.org/ } irc: hughesjr, #centos at irc.freenode.net Twitter: @JohnnyCentOS   -------------- next part -------------- A non-text attachment was scrubbed...
