    Last week CentOS 3.5 was officially released, i've just tested it on a box and it works fine.

    Regards,

    Was that a fresh install or an upgrade from 3.4?

    Go on, have a guess
    Searched the CentOS site and see no official release - can you point us to the official release information?

    I also see no official announcements (on the main site), however I looked at a few mirrors on their site and they do indeed have 3.5 in there.

    I also haven't seen anything on the official announcement mailing list - maybe someone has jumped the gun here ;)

    Thanks for the info Brent.

    Any chance of going one step further and posting an upgrade guide? I tried a spot of googling but couldn't find anything.

    I posted a upgrade tutorial on tweakgeek.com, which includes a lot of information.

    Regards,

    And from the CentOS-Announce mailing list today:

    To me this would seem that modifying yum.conf would be all that is needed to update to 3.5.

    Would anyone care to comment on whether I'm right or wrong?

    You're right. Just did it myself after the official release and it worked just fine - I had to switch mirrors, though, as the one I was using hadn't had 3.5 propagated yet.

    has anyone tried the upgrade from tweakgeek.com ? By the way, what are the differences made to the 3.3 / 3.4 to 3.5 ?

    hey guys,

    not sure if you guys are aware. If you run /scripts/upcp with Current Release. Cpanel auto upgrade Centos to 3.5. I just try to upgrade one of our Centos 3.4 server and notice the OS is upgraded after the cpanel upgrade is complete :)

    Kinda funny that I'm running FC2 and I see an update notice for CentoOS in my WHM... I suppose I can safely ignore it?
