About CentOS
CentOS featured in Linux Magazine
CentOS-4 is featured in the April 2006 edition of Linux Magazine (Issue 65).

This edition contains a review of CentOS and an exclusive CentOS-4.2 DVD with both the i386 and x86_64 distros included.

You can read parts of the April 2006 edition on-line or order Issue 65 and get the DVD delivered to your home.
New update system for CentOS-4

The CentOS Project has developed a Geo-IP enabled system for our CentOS-4 yum updates that generates dynamic mirror lists based on two very important items:

1. The connecting location of the client.

2. The current freshness/staleness of the mirrors for that region.

This update system will allow us to read the connecting location of a client, look for fresh mirrors close to that client, and provide a list of ten mirrors for each CentOS repository that is included in the file /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo. The selection base is currently about 100 mirrors from around the world.

Releases:
2008-10-22 00:00:00.0 CentOS 4.7 "Server CD" has been released    View
The single CD server install for CentOS 4.7 has now been released and is available from all active mirrors. Notes: this installer will only work with i686-based CPUs; the included packages are a subset of all packages available in the CentOS distribution, however yum has been pre-configured to use the entire repository; in order to ensure that drivers and other third-party applications maintain compatibility, the package set used on the Server CD is from release time CentOS 4.7, you are strongly encouraged to run a 'yum update' immediately after installation; the ISO size is lower than the 650 MB acceptable for a single CD - feedback on what other packages should be added or removed from this CD for the next release are welcome.
