We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of CentOS-6.3 for i386 and x86_64 Architectures. Release Notes for 6.3 are available at http://wiki.centos.org/Manuals/ReleaseNotes/CentOS6.3 - we recommend everyone looks through those once. CentOS-6.3 is based on the upstream release EL 6.3 and includes packages from all variants. All upstream repositories have been combined into one, to make it easier for end users to work with. All updates released since upstream 6.3 release are also released to the CentOS-6.3 mirrors.
Downloading CentOS-6.3 for new installs: When possible, consider using torrents to run the downloads. Usually its also the fastest means to download the distro. Torrent files for the DVD's are available at : http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6.3/isos/i386/CentOS-6.3-i386-bin-DVD1to2.torrent http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6.3/isos/x86_64/CentOS-6.3-x86_64-bin-DVD1to2.torrent You can also use a mirror close to you : http://www.centos.org/modules/tinycontent/index.php?id=30 Most mirrors will allow direct DVD downloads over http, ftp and rsync. Please keep in mind that not all mirrors are currently updated, some might take upto another 24 hours before they have all the content. We have also made efforts to try and ensure that most install types and roles can be run from DVD-1 itself.
