Centos & Ubuntu new releases and ISO images updated

We’re pleased to announce that we’ve updated our Centos and Ubuntu OS ISO collection today, following new releases from both these extremely popular Linux projects.

The Centos 6.6 collection has been updated to the newly released Centos 6.7. More information can be found in the release announcement from 3 days ago.

The Centos 7.0-1406 collection has been updated to the latest rolling ISO media release for May 2015 (1505).  To quote from the Centos project:

“The rolling builds are a point in time snapshot of a given CentOS version including all updates on mirror.centos.org.  This includes all all security, bugfix, enhancement and general updates for CentOS Linux, in this case they include updates up to and including May 28th, 2015.”

We have also expanded our Centos 7 collection to include the Minimal and Net install ISOs. More info about this latest release can be found in the Centos 7 Release 1505 announcement.

The Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS (Long-Term Support) collection has been updated to the newly released version 14.04.3. More info can be found in the release announcement from 4 days ago.

If you already have an older version of any of these OS installed, you can easily update them, and we urge you to do so as soon as possible.

For Centos, just run the command yum update

For Ubuntu, see Ubuntu’s guide to Trusty updates.

Additionally, as announced recently here, Ubuntu 14.10 (Utopic Unicorn) reached End of Life on July 23, 2015. As such we have deleted it from our ISO collection. If you are still running this version of Ubuntu you should upgrade to 15.04 (Vivid Vervet) as soon as possible so you can continue to release security updates. You can find guidance about doing that here.

If you need help upgrading your OS, we can often perform updates for you at very reasonable hourly rates, just open a support ticket to discuss further.

As always, if there is a particular OS you’d like us to update if you spot there is a newer version available, or if there’s an OS you’d like us to add to the collection that we don’t already have, just let us know, we’ll almost certainly say yes. The full list of OS in the collection can be found here.
