CentOS Linux 7.4.1708: The CentOS operating system is developed by an open source collaboration community. Typically, CentOS users are companies and individuals who do not need strong commercial support for their operating system.
CentOS is a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 100% Compatible Rebuild that fully complies with Red Hat's distribution requirements. CentOS is for those who need stability in a business-class operating system without the cost of certification and support.
From 2014, Red Hat funds CentOS, allowing the development team to maintain its open-source character.
CentOS 7 is a great choice for home use, even on a Linux-friendly laptop. It will work well despite the challenges. Facing the challenges is also the disadvantage of CentOS, as it does not have the support of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Red Hat released it Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.4 on 1th August 2017. Of course, as I had mentioned, I was expecting (and probably all distribution friends) CentOS's upcoming 'Release Point', which means the main release of a distribution (in this case CentOS Linux 7) in the 4 update from the source Red Hat code.
Today it seems the day I expected:
CentOS repositories contain all up-to-date 7.4.1708 packages as well as official ISO images for full installation of the distribution.
For those who know CentOS, the release of each new release is a big event due to the slow development cycle adopted by the Project.
Below you can download the ISO you are interested in from the server of the University of Crete. Those who have already installed CentOS and just want to upgrade to the next version can run the command:
yum update && yum upgrade
Download the ISO you need
Tip: ISO labeled is good enough for an installation, you do not need larger files.
