Linux News Today: CentOS Linux 7 Rolling March ISO Images Are Now Available to Download
Today, April 7, 2016, CentOS maintainer Karanbir Singh was happy to announce the general availability of updated CentOS Linux 7 rolling ISO images for the month of March.
CentOS Linux 7 is a rolling release operating system based on the freely distributed sources of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, which means that it’s an open-source version of RHEL, maintained by the community, and like many other similar distributions out there, it receives monthly ISO respins.
These new installation medias can be used by those who want to deploy the latest build of the CentOS Linux 7 operating system on new computers without having to fetch all the security patches and software updates released during the previous month.
