CentOS 5.6 release imminent
Yes, we have heard it a few times before, but this time it is true. CentOS 5.6 is being seeded to mirrors and work has started to bring the Release Notes up to speed. Already 82 days after RHEL 5.6.
Next up is CentOS 6.0, hopefully this one is released before RHEL 6.1, since the RHEL 6.1 Beta is already two weeks out. The fact that CentOS 6.0 is already 145 days behind RHEL 6.0 is something the team will have to think about. Leveraging the community by opening up the QA process is a no-brainer to me.
We'll find out the coming set of RHEL releases, only the future will tell... But denying there is a problem, or insulting criticism on the forums is not a very promising sign of improvement :-(
Update: And today (9/4/2011) the release was announced !
