CentOS 6.8 released for i386 and x86_64 architectures

The CentOS team announced immediate availability of CentOS 6.8, latest stable update in CentOS 6.x series. CentOS is a community driven enterprise operating system developed from the sources of Red Hat Enterprise Linux(RHEL).

The CentOS project has placed all upstream varieties into a single repository and users can easily install workstation, server or minimal flavors from this unified repository.

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.
