CentOS 7.6 released
Posted on: 12/04/2018 09:29 AM

CentOS Linux 7.6 has been released for various architectures:

Release for CentOS Linux 7 (1810) on the x86_64 Architecture
Release for CentOS Linux 7 (1810) on aarch64 i386 ppc64le and power9
Release for CentOS Linux 7 (1810) on armhfp

Release for CentOS Linux 7 (1810) on the x86_64 Architecture
We are pleased to announce the general availability of CentOS Linux 7
(1810) for the x86_64 architecture. Effectively immediately, this
is the current release for CentOS Linux 7 and is tagged as 1810, derived
from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.6 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.

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

----------
Special notes

You'll see that ppc64 is missing from the download list, don't read too
much
into it. We had a few last minute problems with it and didn't want to
delay the
release because of it, ppc64 will be available in the next few days.

Details on the images are available on the mirrors in a file called
0_README.txt next to the isos. That file clearly highlights the

== What's new (specific to armhfp)
As before, CentOS 7 userland for armhfp is still built from the CentOS 7
distribution, with some modified, added (or removed) packages.

Here are some highlights for the 7.6.1810 release :
- Even with the release of kernel 4.19.x, we decided to keep kernel 4.14.x
for this release, mainly because it is too new.
- uboot images were updated to version 2018.09 to support more boards
- we have added the "RootFS" image, that some people asked for in the
lists.

I think the most important part of 7.6.1810 is that thanks to the work done
in previous releases, the process to build this version was done
completely on
par with the other arches, without the need for too many special cases, and
that avoids a lot of problems.
