The CentOS images in the docker index have been bumped to 20150102.
Additionally there are numbering scheme improvements requested by the

1. All updates through 20150101 applied to rolling builds

1. Minor version tags - 5.11, 6.6, and 7.0.1406
   These builds are built from install media only. They do not contain
updates and will not be updated as part of the rolling/monthly builds.
They are meant for use by those with specific vendor versioning
requirements. Users are responsible for ensuring that the images are
updated as needed via a 'yum update -y' in their Dockerfiles or other

2. Short names
   Users can now use short names to identify specific docker image tags.
For example: centos:6 in place of centos:centos6. Both names are now
valid and point to the same images.
