Yesterday, a major update to one of my favorite Linux distributions started hitting the public mirrors for download. After about a month of testing and building, the CentOS 7 general release is up and ready for download. The current build is only for a desktop environment, but other builds are also on the way for docker, cloud images, and the minimal release.
With the release of CentOS-7 we see a new version numbering scheme attaching the year and the month to the build title. This new numbering scheme allows the CentOS community to update cloud images on a more frequent basis with less hassle than the old numbering pattern. One of the great things about the release of CentOS-7 is that the updated kernel will allow CentOS to create docker images for server deploys. This will help me out a lot in the system admin world.
