A little after release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.9, CentOS team has prepared and published CentOS 6.9, latest updated snapshot of RHEL based, community driven, enterprise GNU/Linux distribution. This release announcement includes both x86 and x86_64 flavors of CentOS.

Being a RHEL 6.9 based release, CentOS 6.9 includes all updated packages from upstream. In order to make update process less painful, all of the upstream variants including Workstation, server and minimal install have been placed in a single combined repository. All of these variants can be installed from this combined repository.

Existing users of CentOS 6.x series can update their system to the latest release by performing simple yum update command. While, it is not recommended to perform updates from other series of CentOS as it may seriously break the system.
