We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of CentOS-5.11 for
i386 and x86_64 Architectures.

CentOS-5.11 is based on source code released by Red Hat, Inc. 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-5.11 can be found on-line at :
http://wiki.centos.org/Manuals/ReleaseNotes/CentOS5.11 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-5.10 ( or any older CentOS-5 release ):

If you are already running CentOS-5.10 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-5.11, run : 'rpm -q centos-release' and that
should return: 'centos-release-5-11.el5.centos'

Downloading CentOS-5.11 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

NOTE: The bash version included on the CentOS-5.11 ISOs is a version
that contains the shellshock vulnerability.  When we create CentOS Linux
ISOs, we try to mirror the same package versions that are on the
upstream ISOs from Red Hat, whose ISOs also contain that vulnerability.
An updated bash is available as a zero day update in the 5.11 updates
repo now.  Please run 'yum update bash' after install. There is also 
an Important nss security update that must be installed after using
this ISO set.

Getting Help:

The best place to start when looking for help with CentOS Linux 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 instead 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.
