CentOS 3.7 is available now

The CentOS development team is pleased to announce the availability of CentOS 3.7. Major changes in this version of CentOS include: Added Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) functionality to CentOS-3. IPMI is a standard for controlling intelligent devices that monitor a system. It provides for dynamic discovery of sensors in the system and the ability to monitor the sensors and be informed when the sensor's values change or go outside certain boundaries. To use IPMI, you need an interface to an IPMI controller in your system (called a Baseboard Management Controller, or BMC) and the IPMI software.

About the CentOS

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.

He CentOS development team is pleased to announce the availability of CentOS-3.7 in the following architectures:

i386 - This distribution supports AMD (K6, K7, Thunderbird, Athlon, Athlon XP, Sempron), Pentium (Classic, Pro, II, III, 4, Celeron, M, Xeon), VIA (C3, Eden, Luke, C7) processors.

x86_64 - This distribution supports AMD (Athlon 64, Opteron) and Intel
Pentium (Xeon EM64T) processors.

ia64 - This distribution supports Intel Itanium2 processors.

s390 - This distribution supports IBM S/390 processors.

s390x - This distribution supports IBM Z-Series servers.

Some changes

1. Added Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) functionality to CentOS-3. IPMI is a standard for controlling intelligent devices that
    monitor a system. It provides for dynamic discovery of sensors in the system and the ability to monitor the sensors and be informed when the  
    sensor's values change or go outside certain boundaries.

To use IPMI, you need an interface to an IPMI controller in your system (called a Baseboard Management Controller, or BMC) and the IPMI software.

2. An improved NUMA-friendly page allocation policy is included in CentOS-3.7 for x86_64 processors. The default behavior is the same as 
    CentOS-3.6, which does not use this policy. To enable the policy, see the CentOS-3.7 release notes for details.

3. Several hardware kernel modules have been added and updated, see the CentOS-3.7 release notes for details.
