Understood. I have a software vendor stating that they were not compatible with CentOS 7.0 but were compatible with CentOS 7.1. And after performing a 'yum update' I can see the system moves to 7.2 without any option to stay at an earlier version but I understand the point behind this. Thanks even though my vendor hasn't stated that they are compatible with 7.2 I would assume this to be the case. -----Original Message----- From: centos-virt-bounces at centos.org [mailto:centos-virt-bounces at centos.org] On Behalf Of Johnny Hughes Sent: Tuesday, February 02, 2016 5:22 AM To: centos-virt at centos.org Subject: Re: [CentOS-virt] When will CentOS 7.1 become available as an AWS AMI?

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.
