We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of CentOS-6.5 install media for i386 and x86_64 Architectures. Release Notes for 6.5 are available at http://wiki.centos.org/Manuals/ReleaseNotes/CentOS6.5 – we recommend everyone looks through those once.

CentOS-6.5 is based on the upstream release EL 6.5 and includes packages from all variants. All upstream repositories have been combined into one, to make it easier for end users to work with.

There are many fundamental changes in this release, compared with the past CentOS-6 releases, and we highly recommend everyone stufy the Release Notes as well as the upstream Techical Notes about the changes and how they might impact your installation.

All updates released since upstream 6.5 release are also released to the CentOS-6.5 mirrors.

Everyone who has centos-cr repositories enabled and in use, would already be running CentOs-6.5 as of one week ago and will notice only the centos-release rpm update today.
