>> We have no idea what will be in CentOS-6.11 until Red Hat releases
>> RHEL-6.11 .. and we have no idea what will be in the release of CentOS-7
>> until Red Hat releases RHEL-7.6 .. literally, we take the source code
>> they release .. modify it for Trademarks and Logos .. and release it.

> Part I. New Features
> This part documents new features and major enhancements introduced in Red Hat 
> Enterprise Linux 7.6 Beta.
> Chapter 4. General Updates
> In-place upgrade from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 
> 7
> An in-place upgrade offers a way of upgrading a system to a new major release 
> of Red Hat Enterprise Linux by replacing the existing operating system. To 
> perform an in-place upgrade, use the Preupgrade Assistant, a utility that 
> checks the system for upgrade issues before running the actual upgrade, and 
> that also provides additional scripts for the Red Hat Upgrade Tool. When you 
> have solved all the problems reported by the Preupgrade Assistant, use the 
> Red Hat Upgrade Tool to upgrade the system.
