Subject: [CentOS-announce] CentOS 4 i386 and x86_64 release of
To: CentOS-Announce <centos-announce at centos.org>,	Ladislav Bodnar

The CentOS development team is pleased to announce the release of CentOS
4.8 for i386 and x86_64.

It is available on all CentOS.org mirrors and via bittorrent, see this
link to download ISOs:


This release corresponds to the upstream vendor U8 release.  Also
released in the updates repository for CentOS-4.8 are all updates
through August 20th, 2009.

Work for the i386 and x86_64 ServerCDs and for the ia64, s390 and s390x
architectures is in progress.

If you are currently using an older CentOS-4 version, using this command
will upgrade you to CentOS-4.8:

yum upgrade

Major changes for this version are:

 * There is a technology preview of OpenOffice-2.0 included in the
updates directory.  You can install this OOo2 preview alongside the
current OOo-1.1.5 version, or you may install the OOo2 preview alone.
We apologize that this was not included on the ISOs, however it was not
on the upstream ISOs and we followed that layout.  To List the new
OpenOffice-2.0 RPMS with yum use this command:

       yum search openoffice.org2 | grep i386 | grep -v langpack

   For finding Language Packs (if you want other than English) do:

       yum search openoffice.org2 | grep langpack

   Use "yum install <pkg_name1> <pkg_name2>" to install the packages
that you want, or "yum info <pkg_name1> <pkg_name2>" to obtain more
information about them.

For these and other changes, please see the CentOS specific release
notes here:

and the detailed upstream release notes here (and in the /NOTES
directory on your install media):
