It has been released to CentOS-3 on Oct 7th, in the updates repository.
The other maintainers have their own schedule/priorities.

No one prevents you for switching distribution.

Speaking for CentOS-3, the enhancements used to go to the fasttrack repo, ie
pending updates for the next point release.
Since CentOS-3.9 is the last respin, all the RHEA are now in updates.

Ask on the SL mailing list, we can't speak for them!
