Subject: [CentOS-announce] CentOS 4.7 is released for i386 and x86_64
To: CentOS-Announce <centos-announce at centos.org>,	Ladislav Bodnar
	<distro at distrowatch.com>
Message-ID: <48CB99FE.1040206 at centos.org>
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"

The CentOS development team is pleased to announce the release of CentOS
4.7 for i386 and x86_64.

It is available on all CentOS.org mirrors and via bittorrent, see this
link to download ISOs:

http://isoredirect.centos.org/centos/4.7/isos/

This release corresponds to the upstream vendor U7 release.  Also
released in the updates repository for CentOS-4.7 are all updates
through September 12th, 2008.

Work for the i386 and x86_64 ServerCDs and for the ia64, s390 and s390x 
architectures is in progress.

If you are currently using an older CentOS-4 version, using this command 
will upgrade you to CentOS-4.7:

yum upgrade

--------------------------------------------------------------------
Major changes for this version are:

  * Password hashing using the SHA-256 and SHA-512 hash functions is now
supported.

  * This update implements the use of paravirtualized block device and
network drivers, which improve the performance of fully-virtualized
guests.

  * There is a technology preview of OpenOffice-2.0 included in the
updates directory.  You can install this OOo2 preview alongside the
current OOo-1.1.5 version, or you may install the OOo2 preview alone.
We apologize that this was not included on the ISOs, however it was not
on the upstream ISOs and we followed that layout.  To List the new
OpenOffice-2.0 RPMS with yum use this command:

        yum search openoffice.org2 | grep i386 | grep -v langpack

    For finding Language Packs (if you want other than English) do:

        yum search openoffice.org2 | grep langpack

    Use "yum install <pkg_name1> <pkg_name2>" to install the packages
that you want, or "yum info <pkg_name1> <pkg_name2>" to obtain more
information about them.

  * The divider=[value] option is a kernel command-line parameter that
allows you to adjust the system clock rate while maintaining the same
visible HZ timing value to user space applications.

  * Firefox is now rebased to version 3.0.x.

For these and other changes, please see the CentOS specific release 
notes here:

directory on your install media):
