CentOS 7 is the release.  There are point in time 'install collections',
like 7 (1406) (based on RHEL 7.0) .. 7 (1503) (based on RHEL 7.1), 7
(1511) (based on RHEL 7.2).

But these point releases, based on a point in time, are just a picture
of CentOS 7 at that exact point in time.  The only way we recommend
CentOS is all latest updates installed.  And no matter what version you
install, a yum update takes you to that version.  That is why we have
only one image listed.

A base 7.1 install would have several Critical security issues, and
updating to fix those issues brings you to 7.2.
