CentOS distribution is the Community proposal of an Enterprise-like distribution. CentOS 7, like any other version of the distribution, is based entirely on the Red Hat Enterprise source code and is aimed at those who are interested in running a distribution compatible with RedHat Enterprise but do not need the support that Red Hat offers.
The distribution is LTS, which is supported for many years, making it ideal for a server environment or for those who want a stable and reliable operating environment.
So today, Karanbir Singh announced the launch of CentOS 7.3 1611. The new version comes from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.3 and offers several new features such as SHA2 support in OpenLDAP, Bluetooth LE, and a preview of Btrfs technology.
"With the release of 1503, CentOS-7 can report bugs directly to bugs.centos.org. You can find information about this feature on this page. Various new packages include:
python-gssapi, python-netifaces, mod_auth_openidc, pidgin and Qt5. Support for 7th generation i3, i5, and i7 processors Intel I2C processors of the 6th generation. "
Several packages have been updated. Some of these are: amba, squid, systemd, krb5, gcc-libraries, binutils, gfs-utils, libreoffice, gimp, SELinux, firewalld, libreswan, tomcat and open-vm-tools
Above information can be found at official announcement.
