A month and a half has passed since the release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.5, but CentOS 5.5 has finally made it out into the world as the community equivalent to the RHEL5.5 packages. CentOS 5.5 is available for i386 and x86_64 systems and there continues to be LiveCDs of it for those interested.
The CentOS 5.5 packages and features match that of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.5. Among these changes include new hardware support, run-time memory allocation for KVM guests, and EXT4 file-system support.
