CentOS 5.6 Images And Templates Updates

All of the CentOS 5.6 Lightweight and Desktop Templates have been updated. This brings in new packages since the initial release early last month. The KVM and VMWare images now have an ext4 root filesystem and the vmdk is using SCSI emulation instead of IDE by default. This is the new normal for our builds but the initial CentOS 5.6 images were old school (EL5 has been around a long time now).

Look Ahead: The new CentOS QA calendar seems to indicate a June release for CentOS 6.0. We should be in a good position to release CentOS 6 templates within some reasonable delta of upstream.

Fedora 14 Updates; Fedora 15 Beta

All of the lightweight Fedora 14 templates for VMWare, QEMU/KVM, Xen and SolusVM have been updated. This release brings in all package updates through May 16th.

Fedora 15 Beta x86-64 templates are now available for the following platforms: Xen, KVM, VMWare and XCP; we will be expanding this list and adding 32-bit templates in (approximately) two weeks after Fedora 15 goes into general release.

April Release Calendar

CentOS is in the process of releasing 5.6 to the general public. We expect to have lightweight images and templates ready this week and the full gamut of images no later than April 11th. Look for announcements here or track one of the RSS feeds. There is also a good chance that Slackware 13.37 (yes that is the actual version number) will be here later in the month. Finally, due to popular demand we will also be making (some) templates available in xva format, which runs under Citrix XenServer and its OSS relative XCP (Xen Cloud Platform).
