CentOS 7 (1804) released with Red Hat EL 7.5 base

The CentOS community has announced the release of CentOS 7 (1804), a minor release in CentOS 7 series. This release is derived from recently announced Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7.5 and is available for multiple architectures.
CentOS 7 release comes with several bug fixes and security updates inherited from EL base. So, it is highly recommended to update the packages immediately. This can be done using regular yum update operation.
Updates released since the upstream release are all posted, across allarchitectures. We strongly recommend every user apply all updates,including the content released today, on your existing CentOS Linux 7machine by just running 'yum update'.

As with all CentOS Linux 7 components, this release was built fromsources hosted at git.centos.org. In addition, SRPMs that are abyproduct of the build (and also considered critical in the code andbuildsys process) are being published to match every binary RPM werelease. Sources will be available from vault.centos.org in their owndedicated directories to match the corresponding binary RPMs. Sincethere is far less traffic to the CentOS source RPMs compared with thebinary RPMs, we are not putting this content on the main mirrornetwork. If users wish to mirror this content they can do so using thereposync command available in the yum-utils package. All CentOS sourceRPMs are signed with the same key used to sign their binarycounterparts. Developers and end users looking at inspecting andcontributing patches to the CentOS Linux distro will find the codehosted at git.centos.org far simpler to work against.
