We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of CentOS-5.10 for
i386 and x86_64 Architectures.

CentOS-5.10 is based on the upstream release EL 5.10 and includes
packages from all variants including Server and Client. All upstream
repositories have been combined into one, to make it easier for end
users to work with.

This is just an announcement email, not the release notes. The Release
Notes for CentOS-5.10 can be found on-line at :
http://wiki.centos.org/Manuals/ReleaseNotes/CentOS5.10 and everyone is
encouraged to look through them once. Also worth browsing through are
the CentOS FAQs at http://wiki.centos.org/FAQ

Upgrading from CentOS-5.9 ( or any older CentOS-5 release ):

If you are already running CentOS-5.9 or an older CentOS-5 release, all
you need to do is update your machine via yum by running :

'yum update'

Running 'yum list updates' before doing the update is recommended, so
you can get a list of packages that are going to be updated. To check
you are indeed on CentOS-5.10, run : 'rpm -q centos-release' and that
should return: 'centos-release-5-10.el5.centos.1'

If you are running CentOS-5.9 and have the CR repo enabled, a simple
'yum update' will still move your machine to 5.10. But since the CR repo
already contained all the 5.10 updates, there will only be a handful of
rpms that need to be installed for the 5.9 to 5.10 upgrade. If you are
not running the CR repo, we highly encourage everyone to install and run
this repository on their machines. More details on the CR repo can be
found online at http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories/CR

Downloading CentOS-5.10 for new installs:

- -- Via direct download:
Due to bandwidth considerations the CentOS Project does not publish ISOs
directly from our network machines. However direct downloads are
available from external mirrors over http, ftp and rsync. A geoip
based list is available at http://isoredirect.centos.org/centos/5/isos/
to give you the best predictable match ( and only lists mirrors that are
updated already, so you don't need to waste time looking for a sync'd
mirror )

Most mirrors also publish DVD images that can be downloaded directly.
Refer to the "mirrors list" page at http://www.centos.org/mirrors for more
details Mirrors that offer DVDs are clearly marked on the page.

Getting Help:

The best place to start when looking for help with CentOS is at the wiki
( http://wiki.centos.org/GettingHelp ) which lists various options and
communities who might be able to help. If you think there is a bug in
the system, do report it at http://bugs.centos.org/ - but keep in mind
that the bugs system is *not* a support mechanism, it is insttead a place
where the CentOS community provides help to and for each other.

Some Friendly URLs :

A big thanks to everyone who contributed towards this release, including
the translation teams, the qa team, the artwork team, the CentOS
Developers and all the users out there.
